I personally hate how long I get to use my account for. GANZ charges you 15$ for a webkinz, and you can use it for only a year! Then my webkinz sits around in my room to gather dust. How 'bout never ending accounts, and an option to close the account if you want?
Well, this is the way Ganz makes their money. If you want an extended account, then you can wait until a few days until your account ends when they offer you an extra few months if you renew. If you are on vacation, well, theres nothing you can do. Ganz is a big company, and needs to write many paychecks. How do they make their money? This way.
We spend thousands on webkinz each year and all they give is is 365 days of play?
Did you just read what you wrote? You are adopting the animals, obviously. That means that you are renewing as you are adopting. I have been doing this all along.
I have three 'feeder' accounts. Those accounts I use for things like Wishing well, Wheel of Wow, extra tries on the Klaw machine, stuff like that.
They only have about 3 pets each on them.
The reason why? I started off with ONE pet, let it lapse to right before the renewal cycle.
At 2 weeks before the anniversary you get a letter telling you that if you adopt another pet, they will EXTEND your subscription for another 3 months, giving you 15 months of play instead of a year.
Not only that, just because you buy ONE magazine doesn't mean that you shouldn't have to pay for a subscription.
It is JUST like any other SUBSCRIBED service. 15 bux to play for a year and get ALL THAT COOL STUFF...seems pretty doggone reasonable to Me
Everyone seems to have missed the Deluxe accounts you get ayear of Webkinz plus all of the extras being deluxe. I have just added some feeder accounts and I will be adding them to deluxe.
Also remember that you can keep you eye out for a deal (we often see 2 for 1 webbies) and buy a couple of little kinz for as low as $10 - no need for expensive pets if you are just keeping your account active.
This has been a life saver for me too - $45 and I could renew 5 accounts - instead of $50 (5 x littlekinz) plus we got $40 in estore $ to spend. For those with feeder accounts who don't want to adopt this is a great plan.
I'm guessing that those who are unhappy with a year of play for $15 haven't compared prices. Heck one movie (without popcorn) costs as much and you don't get a cute plush to take home with you!
