Default Unanswered: Help deciding on delux account

Hi,
I'm wanting to get a delux account with some Christmas money I received. I have 3 regular accounts now. Is is better to get the family account or the single account (for the year). Also, do you get the estore points for each acount for the family account or just one? Any other reasons one is better than the other? Please help, all opinions welcome!
Happy New Year!

Default Re: Help deciding on delux account

I was just wanting to know the same thing. I want to buy the delux account for the year and i wonder of it's worth it. I like that you get 3000 estore points a month because there is some stuff on there I really want to buy! One thing I want to add to your question... I have never signed up for an estore account, and it says I need to before I buy a delux membership. I am over the age of 18 but my mom is buying it for me. So do I set up the account in my name because I am the one using it or in hers because she is the one paying for it?

You do get 3000 estore points buying the family, but only on the purchasing estore account. The main advantage is that every webkinz account gets a gold channel, monthly gift and access to Delux activities.

Default Re: Help deciding on delux account

The main thing you need to decide is if you would rather have (up to) 5 different accounts get a deluxe box each month (that is 12 clothing items, 12 wish tokens & 12 misc items EACH person over a year) or if you would rather get just 1 deluxe box a month, but also have the BIG prize item (sign up in 2009 for the Super Deluxe Rollercoaster or wait till 2010 for the Mountain Mine Cart Ride - both are pictured here: http://www.webkinzinsider.com/wiki/(Picture_Gallery)_Deluxe_Membership_Prizes).

The eStore points will only be given to ONE account in either case (the main account holder -the one who's email addy is listed with the Deluxe account), NOT all 5, if you go with Family Membership. It is sill an excellent deal (imo) if you are an eStore shopper.

@ilovecats711 - As long as you are 18, I think you should sign up in the eStore under your own account/name, otherwise you would have to go through her name and email every time you want to buy something. You can have your mom buy you a Deluxe membership as a gift on her account, and then add it to your own estore/webkinz acct. Directions on how to get Deluxe and all of what is included in each type of membership can be found here: https://www.ganzestore.com/membershipcategory

Thanks for the info. My mom doesn't play webkinz so she doesn't have an estore account. Thats why I was confused if I had to make one and her too. It just seemed silly to me to make two accounts.

And can your pet ride on those things or are they just to look at? I don't know where to find info about that. I clicked the link and saw the pics but no info.

It may seem silly to have the 2 accounts, but your mom might like having an account so she can surprise you with gifties for special occasions without you finding out ahead of time - it is no big deal to make an account, just like any other online site she might buy from on occasion.

Yes, your pet does hop into the rollercoaster and ride it (although it is kinda slow for a rollercoaster, lol). It is a fairly large item and takes up at least 1/4 of a yard (sorry, I don't know the exact # of squares).

I got the 5 memberships with my Deluxe acct, and am very happy with that choice!

Hope that helps!

If you have 3 accounts now I would recommend the family membership, but before you sign up for it be sure you don't want to start another membership first. You cannot add another account to your family account later.

I am not sure how the gift accounts work but before you do it make sure that your account is the one that gets the monthly points because you are the one who is going to use them.

Default Re: Help deciding on delux account

The only difference between individual and family is that family accounts share the estore points, and family also does not get the annual item. (For 2009 it is a roller coaster, and for 2010 I believe it's either a river ride or a mine cart ride).

Set it up in your mom's name, you have to be over 18 to use the points.

Default Re: Help deciding on delux account

I refused to buy Deluxe...I put my foot down and said NO WAY...I secretly was so jealous of all the little Deluxe perks and I seethed and wished I hadn't made that vow to NEVER BUY DELUXE!!!!

Then Christmas started to come round and the kiddos wrote their letter to santa...The only thing they asked for (this is absolutely pathetic-the ONLY thing they wanted) was Deluxe...

I told them they needed to make a new letter, there was NO WAY Santa could get a Deluxe membership in his bag...

Well, he figured out a way, and we all had certificates in our stockings congratulating us on our Deluxe status...He magically knew I had three accounts and the kids each had one...Knowing that the price for the family was $45, for 5 accounts-that is a year's worth of fun...lots and lots of extras that are totally worth it-the bonus estore points (which I never would have bought if not for the Deluxe) I can safely say we are Deluxers forever now-and the best part is we don't HAVE to buy new webbies if we don't want to, as long as we keep up the Deluxe membership...

For me, it is totally worth it if you have 3-5 accounts...less than that it just seems like a lot of money for not as much return...
