Default Re: Deal of the Day at the Ganz Estore, Dec 1st - Dec 24th

They shouldn't charge more than 5,000 which is 5 dollars for a virtual item. It's way too much and most of it shouldn't be more than 3,000. I don't buy estore items because of this reason. Not tempted.

They shouldn't be able to start and stop selling items whenever they choose to. Ganz really has no concept of how to treat customers.

Ganz NEVER said it was going to be a Rare or Limited item, only that it would have limited availability at the special 5000 point price. Many items in the eStore are intro'ed at a reduced price (usually through Deluxe member deals), and then are available to everyone at the regular price (in this case, it will be 10,000 points when it is availale again).

I think that did a very nice thing to make it available for the whole day (nice to us and nice for their bottom line ).

I hope they sell the tree again another day since it is a Christmas item.

If you want to see what the eStore tree looks like, just go visit the Santakinz room in the Clubhouse, it is the large tree at the back corner of the room with the yellow and purple base.

I don't remember paying 17,000 for it when it first came out. It must have been a lot less for Deluxe Adv Members.

Considering it was 17,000 (9000 + 8000) for 5,000 now; not bad at all.

The more people buy these deals the more the eStore will do better (I would think in my opinion). I hate the idea myself that my kids have no toy plush to play with if you want to buy the new seasonal mouse, or any of the other e-pets. Kids love the push toys, and what do they do they now make the push $30 for the really nice looking pet naturally. Ugh what a trap when you walk into the brick and mortar store, heheh.

This is the wave of the future, why make it (avoid overhead costs as a company, so) just make it virtual and make tons of people pay for it. What is worse is Gantz is moving away from being a KIDS website and is being more of an adult game site. I wish they had separate sections for this kind of thing. My daughters are simple kids and multiple websites to visit, so it is sad but business is business and I am sure Gantz is trying just to survive. I have to admit, my daughters wanted the Rocket Ship bed, but I refused to pay then decided that I might do it not knowing there was a LIMITED supply, DOH! However I refuse to pay for a Christmas tree, I think that is just rude plain and simple.

I hope you are right. I find it completely rude that Gantz would sell tree's ONLY at the eStore. How would the normal kid who plays multiple websites get a tree then? Beg their parents for $20 so they can start a eStore account then buy the $5.00 tree? I find that totally silly... I pray they find their heart and release more trees later. That long with more other holiday items as prior years did.

I am not trying to be rude but you should NEVER thing Gantz is trying to work for you. Their main objective is the bottom line, this case it was trying to get as many people as they can to buy a five dollar tree that you cannot send or trade. Plus it just makes me scratch my head when they sell items at the eStore that will NEVER have a real item attached. My kids expect a plushy, so I can at this point never buy any of these e-pets, which I find kind-of a scam anyway. They guy the at the business meeting who thought of that idea must be a manager or director by now, heheh.

"Hey lets sell pets, but only just virtual ones no need to make the plushy!"
