A new product has been introduced to the Ganz eStore for Deluxe Advantage members only.  Deluxe Advantage members now have the option of purchasing an adoption code for the current Pet of the Month using their eStore points.  Like other pets sold at the eStore, this purchase does NOT come with a plushie pet.  For February, the White Terrier can be found under the "Advantage Pets" section of the eStore menu.

Re: POTM Pets Now for Sale at the Ganz Store for Deluxe Members

HMMMM...... seems like a good reason to reconsider Deluxe again

Re: POTM Pets Now for Sale at the Ganz Store for Deluxe Members

I'm not sure. I got the Schnauzer at Walgreens for $10 last month. This doesn't even come with a real stuffed animal and it costs more.

Re: POTM Pets Now for Sale at the Ganz Store for Deluxe Members

Just another attempt by Ganz to faze out the dealer. First we can't get enough product then thay start selling it on line. No wonder alot of places have stopped carrying Webkinz.

Re: POTM Pets Now for Sale at the Ganz Store for Deluxe Members

I agree, this is bad for shops like Hallmark. Even Justice did not have White Terriers this month. I am staring to see POTM pets in Target at $9.99. It is going to be harder to find super deals. I bought several White Terriers at bargin prices at Walgreens last month. I think I paid 8.99 for three of them at Ameriwade. It will be better for people who can not find a POTM pet, everyone will be able to buy one if they want. But $12.50 is too much for the pet with no plush. Come on Ganz, this is robbery. Why not offer them at a bargain price...even $10. After all it is the pet of the month.

Re: POTM Pets Now for Sale at the Ganz Store for Deluxe Members

That's good to know! I love having the POTM, and sometimes they're hard to find. It's nice to know that if I cant find the plushie, as a Deluxe member I can get the virtual pet anyway.

Re: POTM Pets Now for Sale at the Ganz Store for Deluxe Members

This will be nice for me. I live overseas, where it's impossible to find Webkinz to buy. Unless I happen to have stocked up a pet that later turns out to be POTM (as happened with the Schnauzer), I can never get it. I don't mind not having the plushie on some of the pets, as I can't carry all of them around with me! This is a nice inbetween way to help out us expats who want to participate but have missed out on some aspects.

So for these reasons, I have to say, "Thanks, Ganz!"

Re: POTM Pets Now for Sale at the Ganz Store for Deluxe Members

For us...thinking that the price is just too much...it's a much older pet...and Ganz should consider offering discounts on those older pets..even if they are the POTM.....We haven't participated in that particular program for some time....( haven't purchased any new ones) Several of our local retailers have offered them for a bit less..but...already have many on our accounts and just am not willing to spend more money for this feature. Thanks as always for the update!!

Dead on! Virtual e-store pets are one thing but actually competing with their own partners/retailers is another. Ganz, if you have the consumer's interest at heart, why not offer to send them the plush? Do you realize you are charging your Deluxe (preferred) customers $12.50 for a code? For less than $10 I can usually get the code with a plush from most retailers. As a general rule, preferred customers get rewards not taken advantage of. Sounds like greed to me.

Yeah I totally agree. They should be alot less. These are usually older pets that everyone has already.

Re: POTM Pets Now for Sale at the Ganz Store for Deluxe Members

ohhh how cool im not a Deluxe member thogh and i already had it!!!!lol

Re: POTM Pets Now for Sale at the Ganz Store for Deluxe Members

I won't be buying for two reasons.

First, I won't buy an online pet that is available in plush because I don't want to encourage this marketing idea. What's to stop them from putting in the Love Puppy or Pegasus or other retired pet if people start buying lots of Plushless Pets online for incentive?

Second, I feel the price is too high. I can get webbies for almost half that price when they go on sale. I'll wait, thanks!

I agree. I actually got the Schnauzer at Walgreens buy one get one free. So it was 9.99 for 2 pets and I made 2 girls happy with plushies. Not just virtual. I think it is ridiculous that they sell these as virtual. This definitely doesn't make them for children, but for adults. My girls want the stuffed animals. If I just want the virtual pets, I would rather buy the stuffed animals and take the tag and donate the pet.

Also for virtual, nothing should be over $5 or $6 I think it should be half the price since I don't get a product.

Re: POTM Pets Now for Sale at the Ganz Store for Deluxe Members

i can get my older ones locally for 8.50, so i don't need this. i know it will be handy for some

Re: POTM Pets Now for Sale at the Ganz Store for Deluxe Members

Hmm smart. And I agree, codes should only be about 7-8 dollars max because it's just the code, and ordering codes on say, ebay, I can get for like 5 dollars! And the Estore don't even come with a plush! I can even get webkinz from stores cheaper than that!

For those who can't buy webkinz at the time, ganz should allow people to buy webkinz with their Kinzcash. :/

Re: POTM Pets Now for Sale at the Ganz Store for Deluxe Members

Ganz, for the pets, I can get with plush, for a MUCH cheaper price, rather you give me the plush AND code, not just a stupid code, I only get the Estore pets that DO NOT have a plush, but, if it's going to be like that you guys are WAY to greedy, on my behalf, I say this because you're basically cheating the costumer, even that you're making it Deluxe, says much more of a scam to me. So Ganz, add a plushie, I bet more people will buy it, Listen to your customers.

Re: POTM Pets Now for Sale at the Ganz Store for Deluxe Members

Thanks Fia for the great info . This will be great if you are looking for the POTM & cant find it in a store

Re: POTM Pets Now for Sale at the Ganz Store for Deluxe Members

This is a rip-off. You can get them cheap on eBay. I bought a lot of POTM animals at Walgreens last month for $5 each. I got 7 for January, 3 for February, and 3 for March all at $5 each.

Re: POTM Pets Now for Sale at the Ganz Store for Deluxe Members

The only way Ganz is going to stop cheating the consumer is if we as consumers make Ganz hear us loud and clear! I for one am no longer going to buy anything from Ganz except for a plush pet I can get on sale at a local store to keep my account open each year. I completely agree that this approach will hurt the stores that currently sell Webkinz products. With the economy being as bad as it is in the U.S. and with the fact that I live in a state that is bankrupt, I like to shop locally and give my hard earned money to fellow neighbors who live and work in my community. Ganz is in Canada, far removed from the problems I have as a U.S. consumer. Once I feel a company no longer cares about me as a consumer, I dump them like a bad habit.

Re: POTM Pets Now for Sale at the Ganz Store for Deluxe Members

Why would I buy a pet at the estore when I can buy the same at the stores and get a plushie. and in most cases get it cheaper!!

I don't care for this idea!

Re: POTM Pets Now for Sale at the Ganz Store for Deluxe Members

I can tell no one cares about this no addition to the Estore. hehehe
