Default Re: bag those webbies, stop tag stealing!

I finally got an e-mail today from the manager at that Walgreens with the tagless webbies. I tried calling her, but each employee that answered said I had the wrong number and hung up
The manager indicated that she had removed all the tagless webbies from display as being damaged, and spoken to the employees about how to treat customers. Maybe I'll go back when the Christmas webbies come out to see if they have tagless ones again.

I've never been to a walmart and a walgreens and a JC Penney's where this has happened.


But an interesting precaution that I've seen some retailers take, is that when they get their shipment of pets in, they keep the tags up front with them and just leave the plushes out. The potential buyer brings the plush up to the counter, and they retrieve the tag from the cashier when they pay for the pet. That seemed to work.. LOL

Yes, I think that is real rude to steal the tags off these furry little pets and get home to a child that now can't sign thier pet on line (all ways check for tags) The bags are nice but its hard to see what the pet really looks like or feels like, but you do get a free pack of card with that deal at Walmart and I LOVE webkinz cards May be they need cameras over the display of webkinz

I agree. Adults might not know you need the tag! And, the tags should have a feature, where if the tags aren't checked out by cashiers, they cannot be used!

They need to have them in a little plastic case

I checked all the pets and two thirds of them had no tags. Some of them still had the plastic pouches, but no tags! There was no manager to be seen, but I did e-mail that store later. I think that if webkinz came in bags (like the ones shown here http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/...online-620780/ ) that the nasty tag stealers might give up. And even if the tag stealers didn't give up, at least well meaning parents and grandparents would see that something was wrong with the torn bag, and think "this one is open, I don't want to get DD an open one"
I always check before I buy a webbie in a store, but I am certain that other grown-ups who do not understand that you need the little blue tag would just buy a webbie for a child, who would then be very upset that they could not adopt the pet.
So I think that all webkinz, or at least those sent to Target, Walmart, Walgreens, etc., should be sealed in plastic bags with the webkinz logo, and a window to see your pet. This would at least deter the nasty tag stealers!

OMG! *Claps* I agree! 100%. I went to cracker barrel one day and there was a TAG ON THE FLOOR! I was horrified. I checked the webkinz I got like ten times to make sure they had their tag.

This is another great idea. If the codes wouldn't activate until they'd been run through a price scanner during purchase, that would help too. Of course, until the word got out that the unscanned cards were worthless, thieves would continue to steal them.
