Default Deluxe Memberships Extend Webkinz World Account Expiration!

A new front page story has been added:

Deluxe Memberships Extend Webkinz World Account Expiration!

Thanks to Love'EmWebkinz for letting us know about the most recent update on WebkinzNewz. Ganz has addressed a question that many of our members have been asking -- If we have a Deluxe Membership, do we have to adopt Webkinz to keep our account from expiring?

Click the image to open in full size.
We’ve received questions about how Deluxe Memberships work with account expiry. We are pleased to say that as long as you are a Deluxe Member, your account will not expire, even if you do not adopt another pet!

Right now the date on your Me and My Pets page will still show your pet’s current expiry, but rest assured your account will keep going! We are looking into changing the information on this page for Deluxe Members.

We hope this clears up any questions you have! Have fun!

This is great news for families (or groups of friends) that are considering the Deluxe Family Membership. All of the accounts will receive the benefits of Deluxe Membership and will have a membership to Webkinz World for $9 per year!

Hmmm, maybe I should try to find some friends to get a deluxe membership with. It seems like a rip-off for $45, but $9 isn't bad!

Wow that's interesting. So if you become a deluxe member, it'll NEVER EVER expire? Or do you still have to renew it every year?

Hi, kc10, the deluxe membership is annual, whether 4 an individual or family. I got mine today so it'll expire a year from today.

Kittycats10, it sounds like you have to renew every year, because it says your account won't expire as long "as you are a deluxe member," so it sounds like if your deluxe membership expires, then your account could expire if you don't renew your deluxe membership.

I purchased the family membership 4 my 2accts, my daughrter & her 2 kidz, so for $.75 a month we got membership hats, a wish token, a special piece of clothing (mine were racing helmets), plus 1 more random item, and you can custom colorize your dock!

What about people that are the one and only person in their household that have an account? I'm the only one with Webkinz as my hubby isn't interested and my dog doesn't have opposable thumbs! Even my husband's insurance company gives people with no family (kids) a break. I can't be the only adult with this question. Any way, Justin, that you could ask Ganz about this? Even $5, or 10% off would go a long way in single account holders' eyes. Or is there a number or thread for us to ask Ganz?

Has anyone asked this question yet? Can the monthly point awards be rolled forward to build up the account or is it a "use it or lose it" situation? LOL - as if I could keep myself from spending them immedately!!

Exclamation Re: Deluxe Memberships Extend Webkinz World Account Expiration!

As a retailer, I know right now that the economy is down as it is but adding a membership for Webkinz World is a dumb idea when it comes to us that sell webkinz. Why you ask? Well because if everyone just buys a deluxe membership so there account will never expire and so they wont need to purchase any stuffed animal webkinz from us retailers. We wont be buying anymore webkinz if this membership takes over so no more webkinz for our store and many other stores that do not agree with this NEW membership that ganz is just trying to make another dollar off Children and Their Parents. Dumb Ganz is all I have to say from a retailers point of view.
