Re: Ameriwade Pre-Sale of March 2011 Webkinz Has Begun!
A lot of very cute pets...I so like the Hippo..but will not go out of my way or pay more to get this pet...I just don't know..Ganz..what are you thinking...lots of members like this pet but are tired of sending way too much gas money and cash to find the newer and rarer pets...
Hi guys!!!!!!!! I LOVE the hippie hippo!!! I've also heard that the hippie hippo is rare. Is it rare and how rare is it? I've also heard that there will only be 3 IN STORES!!! It worries me cuz i don't think i will get it. Plus, I don't think there should be only three in stores!! Should be at least 6!! So are these rumors true???? Thnx for da ppl who anwsered
Hey there. Welcome to WI! The hippie hippo is a limited availability pet, meaning not many are given to stores that sell webkinz. The rumors about there being only 3 per store are true. Ameriwade only ended up with 3, in which they are holding a contest. The contest is that if you order webkinz from their site, they will enter your name in a draw for 1 of 3 hippie hippos. I would also love to get this pet, it is very cute! If you check ebay, they are selling them for around $80 (Which I think is a little much)
I don't like this. Only giving 3 to a store encourages retailers to keep them for themselves, family and friends (even though this means we probably won't get one it is understandable from a retailers perspective of being a perk of putting up with Gantz's poor retailer relationship). What I think is the terrible part are all the retailers putting them on ebay and scalping them. I've been a great customer to a couple of retailers and they keep telling me to call back to see if they will have them in and for sale on March 1st. I don't like being put in the position where I feel like I'm begging for a webkinz and this will happen everytime they put out a limited edition like this. I feel like I'm bothering the employees and they are thinking this "crazy old lady" I wish she would quit calling and stopping in and asking, but I know if I don't keep asking then I won't get one (which I probably won't anyway since there's only 3 and I'm sure family and friends come first). I don't like that Gantz put us in this position and it will keep happening. They need to think of a more fair way to distribute these limited edition webkinz. I think it's great that Ameriwade is drawing from customers that bought from them this month! I'm not a customer but what a thoughtful way to do business. That's my rant and my opinion, thanks for listening .
