Default Unanswered: Retired pets for POTM? Will they ever do this?

Does anyone know if they will ever use a retired pet as the POTM? It would seem rediculous if they did since no one would really be able to get them. Would we have a month where no POTM were adopted? I would like to know because I have pets saved up but some of them are retired. If they would never be POTM, there's no point in saving them, is there?

Default Re: Retired pets for POTM? Will they ever do this?

I doubt that they would. The point of POTM is to promote older webkinz still in circulation to boost sales of those types of pets. They'll never have a new pet as the POTM because people will be buying that pet anyway just because it was recently released, and retired pets are already being purchased simply because they're retired, and like you said, difficult to get your hands on. So I'm pretty sure POTM is going to be reserved for older, not so popular pets.

The only reason I think to reserve a retired pet is for two reasons:
1. you want to hold them off just for renewing your account purposes, aka, adoptiong one every year.
2. you want to hold it off just in case you need quick, extra kinzcash. I find if I keep the pet unregistered and the kc out of my account, I won't spend it and it'll force me to save at least this amount in case of rares. When the aztec bed came out, my family size doubled because I had to adopt 4 pets to get my kc up high enough!!! *laughs*

but if you're really excited as in can't wait another second to play with thier virtual counterparts, go ahead and register them! I have 3 waiting, and I'm holding off because of #2 up there. (I highly doubt I can go an entire year without registering a pet) and... I'm having an impossible time deciding on perfect names Once I'm concrete solid decided on pet names for these 2 retireds, I am registering them! (because it looks like I might have to give up WW next year... so I'd want to enjoy them for as long as possible!)

I highly doubt it, but I don't know for sure. Because they would lose business that way, money, etc, because people can't go buy it.

I've asked this before because of my favorite pet! With the recent sale of online pets, maybe someday the retired pets can make a comeback and we, too, can have our special POTM celebration!

I've never heard of it happening before, but that doesn't mean Ganz wouldn't pull something out of their bag of tricks to surprise us and stir things up. I believe, like others have mentioned, that the POTM is used to promote sales of older Webkinz whos sales might be slagging a bit. There would be no "sales" by using a retired pet for POTM. (Unless, like another mentioned, the Estore starts selling retired pets as online only options- and boy, I hope they do not!)

Yeah, I thought the same too about wanting to boost sales but I just wanted to be sure. I have some retired pets laying around... I'm with crystal flute on this one. I set them aside for kc.. heaven knows I can't wait a year! I guess I'll adopt the retired first and just save the others for the POTM. I did the same for my Hippos. I had 6 of them (got them for $5 each) so waiting was worth it!
