New Deluxe Membership Coming Soon for Families with Multiple Players


webkinz cheatsWhen Ganz removed the Family Deluxe option from the Ganz eStore earlier this year, most of our members were terribly disappointed.  The new pricing meant that many families would no longer be able to afford Deluxe memberships for all of their players.  Ganz had promised that they were working on a more affordable solution, and starting in just a couple of weeks, that option will be available for purchase!
 
Starting on August 31st, anyone who purchases one 12-Month Deluxe Membership will be able to buy additional Deluxe Memberships for up to four family members for the low cost of $5 each.  These so-called "Bonus Accounts" will not receive eStore points, or the Super Deluxe item, but they will have access to all other Deluxe features in Webkinz World.
 
Bonus accounts can only be purchased at the time the full-price 12-Month Deluxe Membership is purchased.  Also, the usernames and passwords for all additional accounts must be entered at time of purchase.  Complete details are expected at the Ganz eStore soon.

FINALLY!!! YAY! Thank you so much Ganz, and FIA!

Even though it is a bit more $$ it is better than paying for 12 month for each account. We have 3 accounts in the house, so it should be worth it.

Re: New Deluxe Membership Coming Soon for Families with Multiple Players

Thanks FIA. I think this is do-able, and a much better solution than before.

Re: Ganz To Add New Deluxe Option for Families with Multiple Accounts

Is it really true?? Just when we were giving up hope of them making this available again! So glad to hear this!

My family still has a few months left, but I know many, many families' deluxe option had expired and they hadn't been able to renew.

Thanks for listening, Ganz!!

Re: New Deluxe Membership Coming Soon for Families with Multiple Players

(I posted this in the Rumours section as well but I thought it would be valuable here, too)

So basically, it looks like this is exactly like the old Family Deluxe Membership, except with a few advantages and disadvantages.

Advantages:
- One of the accounts actually gets the Super Exclusive Deluxe item; before with the old Family Deluxe Membership, none of the accounts on the plan got the Super Exclusive Deluxe item

Disadvantages:
- It costs a little more; instead of $45 for 5 accounts, it'll be $50 for 2 accounts, $55 for 3 accounts, $60 for 4 accounts and $65 for 5 accounts (on the other hand, this is more fair to people who don't need as many accounts with Deluxe - the more you need, the more you pay)
- Bonus accounts don't get eStore points, but that shouldn't be a big deal. You just get whoever owns the "main" account to buy your eStore items for you with the points that it gets as part of the Deluxe membership.

Exactly the same:
- All accounts can only be added to Deluxe at the time of purchase.
- All accounts get the Deluxe features on WW
- All accounts get Deluxe pricing in the eStore
- All accounts get the monthly gift boxes

It's better than buying a plan for each account, but still quite a bit more money. I hope the $5 extends the account also. I have some accounts I covered on the family plan which have too many pets and I don't want to adopt more on them.

Yes, but, to be fair, the original Family Deluxe Membership was really quite a steal. The normal annual cost for 1 account was $45, and the Family cost was also $45 and all you missed out on was the super exclusive deluxe item? $9 per year per account instead of $45 per year per account was a spectacular deal, and frankly, I'm not surprised that Ganz eliminated it. This way the cost is more, yes ($65 for 5 accounts; which works out to $13 per year per account instead of $45, which is still fantastic savings and one account gets a super exclusive deluxe item), but it's also more fair, because someone who needs only two bonus accounts will pay less than someone who needs four.

Just my two cents.

Oh, also, I'm sure the bonus accounts will be extended, yes. (You mean in terms of membership expiring, right?) The announcement on Webkinz Newz does say:

Quote:
Bonus Accounts receive a full year of the great online Deluxe features Webkinz World has to offer
"Features" would, I'm sure, include membership extension.

[lang=de]WOW! Im really happy that ganz did this! Awesome! [/lang]

Re: New Deluxe Membership Coming Soon for Families with Multiple Players

Thank you Ganz!!!! I am more then willing to pay a little more for a family plan. Now my Webbies will still all be Duluxe and I will not be broke.

Re: New Deluxe Membership Coming Soon for Families with Multiple Players

FINALLY!!!!!!!!!
Five of my family deluxe accounts expire 8/17 I can wait to get this!
I like $45.00 better, but still $5.00 additional account is cheaper than adopting another pet and we still get the monthly bonus gifts!!!!!!
Thanks Ganz!

Re: New Deluxe Membership Coming Soon for Families with Multiple Players

Yay!! Thank you Ganz!! This is awesome!!! :]

Re: New Deluxe Membership Coming Soon for Families with Multiple Players

I just renewed one of my account for the year a few weeks ago. Does that mean I won't be able to get my second account for $5 until the first account needs to be renewed next year?

Re: New Deluxe Membership Coming Soon for Families with Multiple Players

I think it's pretty fair. And when it comes time to renew i'll pay the extra 20 bucks it's totally worth it.

Re: New Deluxe Membership Coming Soon for Families with Multiple Players

Good! I was just about to buy the family membership for me, my sister, and my 2nd account when they took it away.

Re: New Deluxe Membership Coming Soon for Families with Multiple Players

YAY GANZ!! I am so happy to hear this. And I think the pricing is very fair!

Re: New Deluxe Membership Coming Soon for Families with Multiple Players

Thanks, Jackal, for the breakdown! I have 4 memberships ending this month, so am really glad they are doing something for our family accounts! The membership now for multiple accounts is not affordable for most of us! THANK YOU, GANZ!

Re: New Deluxe Membership Coming Soon for Families with Multiple Players

So glad to see the family plan back and the new options are really nice!

Oh dear, yes, I think it does.

However, on August 31 when this new way to "add on" to an annual account comes into effect, why not call Ganz up and ask if you can add your second account for $5 to your existing annual account? Tell them that you renewed your annual account right before they announced the bonus account thing, and is there any way they could help? Worst they can do is say no, right?

Re: New Deluxe Membership Coming Soon for Families with Multiple Players

THANK YOU GANZ!!!!! So many people were dissapointed, and now you realized it!

Re: New Deluxe Membership Coming Soon for Families with Multiple Players

Thans Ganz for hearing the complaint. I was no longer going to be able to do deluxe after this year.

Re: New Deluxe Membership Coming Soon for Families with Multiple Players

A lot of people will be happy!
