The hallmark here on Long Island NY, they have always been $12.99 since I started buying them (6 months ago). The girl who works there told me that they buy them for $9.99 and they marked it up $3.00. A friend of mine started buying webkinz when they first came out (they werent that popular) she told me that she spent $6.00 on each, that was 2 years ago.

I don't know about Ganz raising prices as I can usually get them for 8 for the little ones and 11 for the big ones - that's fairly reasonable I think - I do know there are other stores near me that sell them for about five dollars a piece more- and since no one I know of would take a loss - especially the store I always buy them at - they aren't exactly centralized - I seriously doubt that Ganz is marking the toys up that high- the prices may be getting raised - but there's no way Ganz would raise them high enough that stores would have to put the prices as high as a lot are - my fav place would be taking a serious loss....

The problem is the stores that have them and sell lots - are taking advantage of supply and demand - they know they are going to sell them even if they overprice them - so they do it. My store - well, they definitely wouldn't sell as many - and therefore keeps them at the recommended selling price.

LOL all that over 46 KK Bandnerd. I agree but I think Ganz can get away with it because we love Webkinz so much we wouldn't stop buying them even if the price goes up a resonable amount.

Then just tonight I had a good game of lillypadz going, my highest score EVER, I had earned about 50 kinzcash {which is good for me, since i stink at most arcade games}, then all of a sudden webkinz logs me out.........this also happened last night, when I was playing mini golf, i had a pretty good score, and earned 25 kinzcash, but anyways, so I called them and told them, and they said there is nothing we can do, they even told me that I was probably lying......?? WHAT!? I am so mad with ganz and their greediness!! They can't even afford to give me my 46, to be exact, kinzcash?? All I can say is that I am ready to go on strike......:knuppel2: LOLz........

anyone? echo?
listen bandgeek, you say you are calm but you definitely are not. first off, ganz may raise the prices, but webkinz are worth their while: they entertain you and cuddle with you; a real pet would cost hundreds of dollars; consider yourse;f lucky. Also, who makes you buy them? No one but yourself! if you are so upset about your finances, implement this little trick: only buy one webkinz a year! That's too much of a stretch for you? Well, it proves my point! only you are forcing you to buy them as often as you may!

Second, Ganz logs everybody off randomly once in a while: it has happened to me, too. once i lost 400 kc on the wishing well because of it, but i moved on. just forget about it. they have a huge site and they can't fix every little bug.

but, i must agree, telling you that you might have been lying was very rude, and ganz should have done something better, although i doubt you would've gotten your money rertrieved anyway. i hope this helps!

Default Re: Who else is sick of ganz and their greediness???

I was told by a retailer that Ganz reps have told the stores they are all SUPPOSED to sell them for the smae price 12.95 but when I was traveliong with my hubby last week in Georgia I found a couple stores selling them for 20.00 each I was told that I should write Ganz with the names of the satores but haven't yet. It does make me crazy when Webkinz goes off each night I just don't fully understand why it has to go off for so long but I guess we will all have to live with it. Iam one of those people who have spent $600.00 real dollars on cards my daugher has spent $700.00 and we are getting really mad at first we got alot of TC furniture and game room stuff the last 4 boxes or so mostly coupons, groceries and lots of Kinzcash I woud much rather get TC or gaming items. We are thiking of not getting more cards intil it changes but it was suggested that we all write Ganz and complain I already have!

No it is the store because webkinz aren't that expensive where I live

Ganz could put a cap on the price, but I doubt that'll happen. It is all about supply and demand.
Webkinz will eventually lose their popularity, just as everything does. I'm sure the stores that sell webkinz realize this, hence making as much money off webkinz as they can while the demand is high.
