Default Unanswered: Why, and How??

I have two questions on my mind. First, why do people buy from the E-Store? I haven't even asked my parents to buy me anything from there because all you're paying for is a virtual item with real money, IT'S A RIP OFF, PEOPLE!!! I'd rather buy new clothes or something actually touchable. I mean, I see houses LOADED with E-Store items! Why pay money to Ganz when you encounter all those glitches? I only spend money on Webkinz products to benefit the game for me the most. Why buy like 20 charms when you can have one and still have access to the charm forest? Also, I do not understand why people would pay $12.50 on an online pet with no plushie instead of a very cute W-Cares Lil'kinz Plushie with a tag for exclusives W-Cares items. I mean, a dollar of those lil'kinz sales is given to charity!! And it's only $7.00!! Sure they are exclusive, but what does that really mean? When Webkinz World closes, if I bought items from the E-Store, I would be so mad because I would be left with nothing. But if I bought the plushie, I would actually be left with something.



Second, I do not understand how people have this money to buy like 30 webkinz in one month. I only got 22 webkinz in the course of 2 years! Do you have money trees in your backyard, then pick them at night? Why waste money for a site that encounters glitches often? Wouldn't you enjoy



Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I'm really sorry if this offended you in any way, but I just want to know how and why. Please do not report this thread.


Thank you!!

I don't understand either. I rarely buy any webkinz products and I've been around webkinz for about 1 year and I've only gotten 28 webkinz and a bit of other items. Maybe those other people just have a lot of cash.

I agree ,I have 24 webkinz in two years.I can't believe that people have to money to by all those e-store items and all those webkinz!

But,It is YOUR opinion because some people collect webkinz and they might have the money to buy them.


So,even though you might not like the e-store or don't think people should buy webkinz everyone likes different things.I am sorry if I sounded rude or mean I was not trying to be.

Default Re: Why, and How??

I have to say as a parent who buys Webkinz that I have been picking up Webkinz on sale recently. I haven't paid over $11 for a regular Webkins or more than $5 for a Lil Kinz. I've even managed to get some of the Regular Webkinz as Xmas gifts for only $5, trading cards for $1.40 a pack and many other fantastic deals.

I wouldn't worry too much over what other people have. Let them buy what they want and have what they want. They don't release 30 new pets a month, at most they release 8 or 9. You don't have to have every single new item that Ganz releases, they are a company out to make money. Just like every other company. They make a product and after finding out how profitable it is they chose to make more items like trading cards, figurines........they've never said that in order to enjoy WW you must purchase every single item we release. That is the choice of the consumer.
How do I afford it? Ummm, I have a job and work very hard and can spend my money where and how I choose.
Why do I buy it? Because I want to.
Those answers are blunt because that is the way the world works. It seems cruel, but again that is the way the world works. I don't ask you to envy me what I've bought, just like you haven't asked me to pity you for what you don't have. I'm not a better person because of what I have, but I'm also not a bad person for it. This will be the last thread like this that I will read or post on, I am tired of all the complaining about the estore. You may as well complain about the new value meal at a local burger place, or what kind of new jeans a company has made. To me WI was supposed to be a place where people can enjoy WW together, instead every single Sat. and Sun. there are countless threads popping up about how bad Ganz is and how bad the estore is. I'd much rather read and share about how much I enjoy WW or how much fun I've had there recently.
Just one more thing on this rant, not here, but on many other threads I've seen people complain that Ganz is going too far when they add items to the estore and not the WShop. I've been on WW for a year and they have not added that many items to the WShop at all, it's just not something they do. The estore had nothing to do with that. Also no matter what Ganz will never be able to make everybody happy, there will always be a complaint. I just choose not to let little things bother me. Life is too short to let little stuff like the estore and retirements and new webkinz bother you. Have a great Sunday, thanks for voicing your opinion and thoughts and letting me do the same.

Well, I buy from the e-store (well, my mom buys for me...) because there is so little webkinz stuff around here. It's almost impossible to get the stuffies and everything else just doesn't exist. Now, I *am* lucky because my mom's friends and some of mine send me stuff from the US and Canada, which is very cool. But it's not like I get to pick the items, just make suggestions. With the E-store, it's my decision and my spending money that I give to my mom, so it's more me in a way. I wish we would move back to Canada and then I could buy my own WebKinz, but until then, I will use the e-store shamelessly.

I do not use the E-Store becuase its a rip-off REAL money for a FAKE item, if they were only like two bucks an item then i would get some! But the pets are good for those who live in Europe and Australia and other places webkinz are not available. I've been playing webkinz for three years(yes before they were popular, before WI, before the clubhouse) and I have 35 webkinz it makes me ANGRY that brats who started playing a couple months ago have 50 webkinz. I pay for my OWN webkinz with money.
