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

Yep I missed it too. I woke up at 6am central time and all gone all ready. If they think I'm paying ten real dollars for a Christmas tree right after I just bought the one for twenty you can decorate from the estore they have another thing coming. I have a ton of trees right now from previous years, why would I want to pay so much for another? Five bucks maybe, not any more than that! Forget it Ganz. Limit them to a couple hundred, that's fine. When you run out don't think everyone will pay twice that for it when we have so many others already in our collections!

Oh for heaven's sake - they are virtual items that cannot be traded! Let everyone get one if they want - sheesh.

I bet they would make a lot more money with lots of $5 trees - because anyone who knows of the deal is just going to be annoyed and refuse to pay $10.

I agree!! The eStore states: "The special price applies to the first 200 units of the selected item on the day of the sale" (you can't even put it in your cart for the $10 price tag). It should be "deal of the hour" at this rate!

Why would they limit the number of units sold? Just to irritate us one more way?

The math is simple:

If 200 people bought the tree by 2:00 am then perhaps 2000 would have bought it during the entire day.

They did get $1000 they could have got $10.000 - to make up the lost revenue 900 or those 2000 people must buy the tree at full price - and I'm guessing very few unhappy customers are going to - so Ganz just lost out on nearly 9000! for a virtual item that costs them nothing!

Brilliant.

Let's see if they increase the quota or if this becomes midnight madness....

I agree. Why limit the profit they make? Now this would just irritate me to pay full price for something that was just on sale. I just won't buy it. It is usually an impulse buy.

I am a little disappointed that the item is limited and sales out when most people are sleeping...

I agree...isn't webkinz supposed to be for kids? My child is NOT up at midnight (nor am I), the sales should be for the whole day with unlimited numbers of a certain item. Thus, the kids could participate and Ganz would make more money.

Shame on you Ganz!

i was up around 2am (webkinz time) and i thought i would check out the deal of the day. you can't imagine how shocked i was to see it sold out! lost of fans can't be up that late. if they are not going to make it unlimited then i think they should start the sale later, like 6am for people who aren't willing to waste sleep for this.
