No Canon, the accounts are not deluxe. It used to be that if you got close to your account expiry they would offer three additional months of play if you adopted a pet before expiry. I just got that notice about 3 weeks ago in my one account and in the other that is expiring in a couple of weeks just told me that my account is expiring. No offer of 3 additional months
That's why I was confused.
I just got the 3 month bonus On April 15th so it must have just changed.
No, I have a few accounts set to expire. One account is the only one that got the notice, this one...I am just in the process of adopting to see if it will work.
I have been doing it this way with 5 or 6 accounts since I started them up. They ALL had the notice last year that if you 're-upped' in that one month frame you would get the additional 3 months. This just getting told that you had better renew is TOTALLY new.
The wording in the new letter is stating that you can extend your account by getting a Deluxe membership. If I recall correctly that does NOT work to extend the account.
I have tweeted and will contact tomorrow when I have more time. NOT impressed by this development.
Wow, I didn;t know about the extra three months. I have had deluxe since it was offered and have only received the "your deluxe membership is expiring" letter. If I understand correctly, if you keep your deluxe membership steady - no breaks - then you never have to adopt another pet (like I will ever be able to exercise that degree of restraint LOL). Seems to me that if they offer three months extra if you adopt a pet in the month before expiry they should offer some deluxe renewal incentive in addition to the second duplicate deluxe box because that is not really a bonus as far as I am concerned, or at least let the deluxe memberships tag on. In other words, my deluxe acct was set to expire April 3rd. I was concerned that if I let it lapse I would miss the April 1st e-store offers especially given the fall fest glitches (get a life, I know!). I called Ganz e-store and was told if i renewed in March I would start the new membership from the date of renewal - it is not added on once the previous year expires. So, in 2011 instead of expiring April 3, it will expire at the end of March. And for March 2010, I received two gift boxes.
Are you talking about the regular Webkinz account or the Deluxe membership? Do they both have a 3 month extension? I thought somewhere I read Deluxe did that too but I could have been mistaken.
You are not mistaken. Your account will not expire as long as you have a Deluxe Membership. The deluxe membership would work great if a person had several feeder accounts. Then that person would only need one initial pet per feeder account and then the deluxe membership would keep it active. If a person/family has five accounts, the cost is actually less than $10 per account for the year. That can sometimes be cheaper than adopting a new pet.
Ok so let me make sure I understand this since I was gonna ask anyway. If you renew your deluxe account it will keep your account from expiring for that year without adopting more pets? Does this work for a family deluxe also? I have 6 WW accounts, all deluxe, one individual deluxe and a family plan. My main acct is my individual acct with the others being feeder accounts, which includes one asian and one euro account, so if I am understanding this right, as long as I keep renewing my deluxe family acct I won't have to adopt more pets for those accounts?
