Deluxe Memberships Can Now Be Given As Gifts!


webkinz cheats
 As of this morning, Ganz has changed the programming to the Ganz eStore so that it is now possible to give Deluxe Memberships as gifts to other players, even if you don't know their usernames! Previously, to purchase a Deluxe Membership, the buyer had to know the username and password of the account they wanted to make Deluxe. 
 
People purchasing a Deluxe Membership are now given the option to either activate the Membership immediately by entering the Webkinz World account's username and password, OR they can choose to print out a "Code Certificate" that can be given to another player as a gift. 
 
To learn more about how to purchase a Deluxe Membership or to redeem a Deluxe Membership someone else has given you, please visit the Ganz eStore, HERE.
  
Have questions about the Deluxe Membership?  Want to know if it's worth it for you to purchase one?  Please check out WI member RedBear's guide, HERE.  (Or, click "read more" below.)
 
 
The following excerpt was taken from RedBear's guide:
 
a three month membership will cost $15 or 15,000 estore points. you will get 3,000 estore points per month which is 9,000 estore points during the membership. but wait, there's more! you will get a ONE-TIME bonus sign up of 1,000 estore points. your total estore points will be 10,000. 
so the actual cost to be 
Deluxe for three months is $5 and you are promising to spend $15 at the estore.

a six month membership will cost $25 or 25,000 estore points. you will get 3,000 estore points per month which is 18,000 estore points during the membership. but wait, there's more! you will get a ONE-TIME bonus sign up of 2,000 estore points. your total estore points will be 20,000. 
so the actual cost to be 
Deluxe for six months is $5 and you are promising to spend $20 at the estore.

a twelve month INDIVIDUAL membership will cost $45 or 45,000 estore points. you will get 3,000 estore points per month which is 36,000 estore points during the membership. but wait, there's more! you will get a ONE-TIME bonus sign up of 5,000 estore points. Your total estore points will be 41,000. 

so the actual cost to be 
Deluxe for an INDIVIDUAL twelve month membership is $4 and you are promising to spend $41 at the estore.

a twelve month FAMILY membership
 will cost $45 or 45,000 estore points. you will get 3,000 estore points per month which is 36,000 estore points during the membership. but wait, there's more! you will get a ONE-TIME bonus sign up of 5,000 estore points. Your total estore points will be 41,000. 

so the actual cost to be 
Deluxe for a FAMILY twelve month membership is $4 and you are promising to spend $41 at the estore.

Re: Deluxe Memberships Can Now Be Given As Gifts!

Thank you...this is great! I bought the family package last spring, but I had to call the relatives out East to get their passwords...this will be nice!

Re: Deluxe Memberships Can Now Be Given As Gifts!

This is an AWESOME development Thank you for the update on this FIA!

Re: Deluxe Memberships Can Now Be Given As Gifts!

interesting, but how do you figure you pay for how long and stuff?

Re: Deluxe Memberships Can Now Be Given As Gifts!

This is a great idea because of the holidays coming up and all! Way to go, Ganz!

Thanks for letting us know, FIA!

Re: Deluxe Memberships Can Now Be Given As Gifts!

Ok, that makes sense. That way, if they don't want the deluxe or already have it, the giver doesn't mess it up by accident. Excellent, Ganz!

Re: Deluxe Memberships Can Now Be Given As Gifts!

Perfect timing Ganz! I want to give Deluxe membership to my niece for Christmas!

Thanks to you guys for letting us know.

Re: Deluxe Memberships Can Now Be Given As Gifts!

Sounds really good.

So if an aunt buys a yearly family, and we cousins already have memberships that end at different
times, will the certificates let us get another year from the date we enter them?

She was going to do it last year, but 2 of us had ones already that ended in Nov, and
it seemed we would have lost up to 10 months of membership.

Also, the difference between the individual yearly and the family yearly is the individual will get a deluxe item (1 only 1 time).
If you have players, the family yearly is the definite way to spread the cheer.

Re: Deluxe Memberships Can Now Be Given As Gifts!

Thanks for the info this is great news & just in time for Christmas !!

Re: Deluxe Memberships Can Now Be Given As Gifts!

****. It doesn't seem to work for Annual Family memberships. I'm clicking away like mad on the "Give Deluxe Membership as a Gift!" radio button but no dice.

Re: Deluxe Memberships Can Now Be Given As Gifts!

This is a great thing for them to do...Now I'm only wondering if Ganz will help us come up with hints that are a little less obvious...

cough cough Ireallywantdeluxeforchrsitmsandnowganzisofferingtheoptiontogiftpeoplewithdeluxmembershipssocanyouple asegrandpaplease cough cough doesnt' cut it!

Re: Deluxe Memberships Can Now Be Given As Gifts!

You know, since you can purchase deluxe memberships with estore points now, that means that for someone who doesn't shop in the estore, you would purchase your first year for $45.00 and then your second year would just be $4.00 because you would have 41,000 estore points accumulated throughout the year. Not a bad deal at all!

Re: Deluxe Memberships Can Now Be Given As Gifts!

Ok I do not really like deluxe no offence for those who do.

Re: Deluxe Memberships Can Now Be Given As Gifts!

hey! that's pretty cool!!!!!!!!!

Re: Deluxe Memberships Can Now Be Given As Gifts!

So cool! But, you would have to know the other person's password to give it to them, and can't you not give out your password.....?

Re: Deluxe Memberships Can Now Be Given As Gifts!

more deluxe stuff. Sigh. I wish they would like give a free membership to people randomly after someone buys one. then maybe I will get a chance to get it.

Re: Deluxe Memberships Can Now Be Given As Gifts!

That's very interesting... I'm surprised! Ganz has made December the most memorable month of the year Thank you so much Ganz Thanks for this information too!

Re: Deluxe Memberships Can Now Be Given As Gifts!

Re: Deluxe Memberships Can Now Be Given As Gifts!
