Default Deluxe Memberships Can Now Be Given As Gifts!

A new front page story has been added:

Deluxe Memberships Can Now Be Given As Gifts!

Click the image to open in full size.
As of this morning, Ganz has changed the programming to the Ganz eStore so that it is now possible to give Deluxe Memberships as gifts to other players, even if you don't know their usernames! Previously, to purchase a Deluxe Membership, the buyer had to know the username and password of the account they wanted to make Deluxe.

People purchasing a Deluxe Membership are now given the option to either activate the Membership immediately by entering the Webkinz World account's username and password, OR they can choose to print out a "Code Certificate" that can be given to another player as a gift.

To learn more about how to purchase a Deluxe Membership or to redeem a Deluxe Membership someone else has given you, please visit the Ganz eStore, HERE.

Have questions about the Deluxe Membership? Want to know if it's worth it for you to purchase one? Please check out WI member RedBear's guide, HERE. (Or, click "read more" below.)


The following excerpt was taken from RedBear's guide:

a three month membership will cost $15 or 15,000 estore points. you will get 3,000 estore points per month which is 9,000 estore points during the membership. but wait, there's more! you will get a ONE-TIME bonus sign up of 1,000 estore points. your total estore points will be 10,000.
so the actual cost to be
Deluxe for three months is $5 and you are promising to spend $15 at the estore.

a six month membership will cost $25 or 25,000 estore points. you will get 3,000 estore points per month which is 18,000 estore points during the membership. but wait, there's more! you will get a ONE-TIME bonus sign up of 2,000 estore points. your total estore points will be 20,000.
so the actual cost to be
Deluxe for six months is $5 and you are promising to spend $20 at the estore.

a twelve month INDIVIDUAL membership will cost $45 or 45,000 estore points. you will get 3,000 estore points per month which is 36,000 estore points during the membership. but wait, there's more! you will get a ONE-TIME bonus sign up of 5,000 estore points. Your total estore points will be 41,000.

so the actual cost to be
Deluxe for an INDIVIDUAL twelve month membership is $4 and you are promising to spend $41 at the estore.

a twelve month FAMILY membership
will cost $45 or 45,000 estore points. you will get 3,000 estore points per month which is 36,000 estore points during the membership. but wait, there's more! you will get a ONE-TIME bonus sign up of 5,000 estore points. Your total estore points will be 41,000.

so the actual cost to be
Deluxe for a FAMILY twelve month membership is $4 and you are promising to spend $41 at the estore.

Smile Re: Deluxe Memberships Can Now Be Given As Gifts!

Ok, that makes sense. That way, if they don't want the deluxe or already have it, the giver doesn't mess it up by accident. Excellent, Ganz!

Sounds really good.

So if an aunt buys a yearly family, and we cousins already have memberships that end at different
times, will the certificates let us get another year from the date we enter them?

She was going to do it last year, but 2 of us had ones already that ended in Nov, and
it seemed we would have lost up to 10 months of membership.

Also, the difference between the individual yearly and the family yearly is the individual will get a deluxe item (1 only 1 time).
If you have players, the family yearly is the definite way to spread the cheer.

****. It doesn't seem to work for Annual Family memberships. I'm clicking away like mad on the "Give Deluxe Membership as a Gift!" radio button but no dice.
