Yes, But if everyone who entered did that
The score would be Way too low, and We wouldn't win

So its best to atleast try
(That way its also fair to people who did try)

No awesome exclusives, no kinzstyle , or rare items. Just plain wshop items and rarely kinzcash. I thought at first the contest would be cool ad there be awesome prizes, but then I realized, it wasn't cool and there wasn't anything worth having. I mean you can easily go to the wshop and buy the items. Yah some like free items but, free wshop isn't a cool prize to me. Only time I enter one of these contest if there is a kinzcash prize....
I know a lot of people must agree with you on this because anytime cash is a choice, it wins the vote and we win the challenge. I agree that the prizes are sometimes a little disappointing to me. There have only been three or four items offered that I actually wanted, and it seems those are the times I'm outvoted or we don't win at all. Ganz did offer that special safari jacket the first week or two which I thought was promising, but it lost the vote. I couldn't believe it!

Anyway, yes, the prizes could be better, but I don't mind too much. Like everything else, it's a choice to participate or not. And I do love free stuff! I just need to make myself sell it instead of letting it sit in my dock like it has so far. And I try to remember that there are new players coming to webkinz all the time and it takes a long time to buy all those items from the wshop. Maybe I have them after playing for 3 1/2 years, but a lot of others don't. I remember when I first started playing, I'd log in just to get a free piece of fruit! It was a big deal! And as others have said, I love the idea of working together towards a common goal.

I find this statement funny. You only enter if you get kc as a prize? So you only enter/get a prize every few weeks (not sure just how often it is that it comes up) right? That's pretty silly in my opinion.
A lot of us get kc every week! If I dislike the item or can't use it then I go sell it. Free kc!!

So if the kc only prize comes up once a month. Then you might get the 500kc a month. But if I sell my prize each week then I have made appox 1400 kc that month. (500kc prize and avg of 300kc for other 3 weeks). Easy choice in my opinion. Plus as others have said you don't even have to play much if you dislike the game or something.It's just easy free kc for a few minutes of your time.

I do hope they come up with some better prizes at some point. But the one time they did,most people chose something else (actually I think they chose the kc lol). Until they decide to bring in some other choices, I'll just keep bringing in the free kc.

How is it a rip off? If you don't like it, then you don't have to do it. They did this for fun It's free kinzcash anyways, so I'm wondering HOW this is a rip off when it's actually a BONUS.

I agree with several of the points here -- and DIBS says it all --- it isn't a rip off it is a bonus.

A rip off is essentially 'A product or service that is overpriced or of poor quality'. This is a bonus activity that you can chose to participate in or not. If you don't like it, don't play. I usually do, but sometimes don't if I am going to be busy most of the weekend (I know I can just play for a minute or two and qualify, but I don't feel right doing that)
