Arrow BREAKING NEWS: CONFIRMED Glitch With Trading Card Codes

The excitement over the release of the Webkinz Trading Card Series 3 Codes has been dampened a bit by what appears to be a programming glitch.* So far, only six different Trading Card prizes seem to have been activated in the system.* One member who entered a full box of cards, 36 packs, received the following prizes:
  • 13 Goldfish Posters
  • 8 Flip Flops
  • 5 Dr. Quack Beds
  • 5 Ms. Birdy Tchotcke Shelves
  • 3 Chef Gazpacho Place Mats
  • 2 TC3 Condo Theme Beds
Other WI members are reporting similar results.* It appears unlikely that there are only six intended prizes.* Several of our members have placed calls to Ganz to find out what is going on.* If you have already purchased Trading Card Series 3 Packs, you may want to hold of entering the codes until this has all been sorted out.

UPDATE (8/9/08 8:27am KT):
It appears that this duplication issue is a problem with awarding rules for the feature codes. This is just the opposite of the Series 2 Trading Card awarding issues, where the rules were improperly set-up and had to be modified to reflect the intended odds. As such, we want to warn all Webkinz fans against activating the Series 3 Trading Card codes until we have confirmation that the awarding rules have been properly applied!

Wow, I sure feel bad for people who put in a full box of codes. That is an expensive glitch! Who would want 13 goldfish posters! I'll hold off on even buying a full box at this time.

A WI member put in all of their TC2 code prizes on a thread from 3 boxes they purchased. This was awesome and why I decided to purchase a whole box of the Series 2. After Series 1, I wasn't going to spend my money as I didn't feel it was very good value. Unless I see some awesome results, I'm saving my money for the plushies!

Thanks for the information. I feel bad for whomever spent the money on the box of cards. How disappointing. I hope that the problem is fixed soon. I can't wait to get my hands on some series 3 cards!

This is exactly what happened to me today. I opened a full box of cards and got:
12 flip flops
6 Ms. Birdy's Tchotcke shelves
6 Goldfish posters
6 Chef Gazpacho's place settings
5 Trading card condo beds
1 Dr. Quack bed
I am so mad at Ganz! I wasted all that money. It wouldn't have been so bad if I had at least won more Dr. Quack beds. That is the best prize, in my opinion.

I might be mistaken, but the retailers I've spoken to were told not to sell the cards until the end of August (and most haven't even gotten the cards yet to sell). Perhaps this is the reason they were delayed is that Ganz was aware that all the codes weren't programmed in yet, and they were trying to avoid this kind of situation..... (and this kind of reaction).
