I don't agree with Ganz decision here, but I am definitely not going to begrudge anyone who wants to participate in the offer. It's their freedom to do so and I don't want to rain on anyone's parade who wants the cow early. Congrats to them.
I don't know that it will work this way. I think it has to be a purchase of 75,000 points all at one time. You wouldn't be able to use current points like cash to buy new points.

I don't know that it is the greatest of deals unless you buy ALOT at the estore and if you did any of the recent deals, you may have excess just sitting on there now. To add 75,000 more seems like a lot. Though I just thought, if you are a mad collector and planing to get all the new candy themed pets, you are going to spend that much (and more) soon enough anyway and this is a way to get 12,500 points free.

Congratulations to whomever gets it. I love the name.

If they could afford 75 all at once they would have spent 45 to already be deluxe on five accounts. I'm surprised those that can afford it are taking such offense to those that are voicing their opinion on the price. I'm sure Gantz wants everyone's opinions good or bad. Just my opinion for what it's worth .
Actually you no longer have the $45 for up to 5 accounts option. That's gone. Now you have to pay $45 for the first membership and $5 for each additional. So our $45 membership for me and the kids went to $65. Ours was up in Dec and we didn't renew. $65 is just a little too much IMO but I may change my mind later.

Now if you could use these purchased points to buy deluxe I would probably do that since we'd get the cow also but they won't let you do that and I'd never use 75,000 points. I still have something like 30,000 left over from when I was deluxe. I'm not a big estore shopper unless a pet comes out I want, which is rare.

I see a lot of opinions going both ways--for and against this.

Previously, I was getting stuff from estore from my friend who has a credit card and she would get me certain things when I asked. I would usually ask for a pet so she would have to buy more points after if I wanted anything else. Then, the estore point cards came along. Now, I don't have to ask my friend anymore to get me estore stuff and I won't have to pay her back anymore each time she has to buy points. I don't own a credit card right now. I pay for everything with cash and usually checks with doctor visits. So, I can't have a deluxe membership even at $2 a month by credit card or paypal.

I realize there are deluxe members here that can purchase the cow in a couple of months just like that and that is fine and I'm happy for those people. I'm just a little sad because I sort of want this pet but moreso the fact that I'm sad that a lot of people are saying "just get it in a couple of months". Like someone else said not everyone has deluxe. I am lucky enough to get estore points. I can't go down to FYE right now and purchase 3 to 4 estore point cards to get the $75 for the cow, even though this is my only chance to get it. I'd rather wait and get a regular webkinz cow that might be coming out or a special cow at the estore.

Like I said, I'm happy for those that can get deluxe I would just like it if people could think about what they say before they say it. It's not easy for everyone to get the cow when it's available.

Also, I don't appreciate Ganz advertising this as a free pet only for this weekend.

I was just at the estore, and they have the mint chocolate cow for sale at its regular price!
I just clicked "Whats new" and there it was! So everyone who wants one but doesn't like
the $75.00 thing, heres your chance!

Oh, sorry, I just went there again and false alarm.

I must admit that I had never thought about housebound or handicapped people needing a way to shop. However, why does Ganz feel the need to have the e-store? What was wrong with the W-Shop? Your housebound customers can still use that. Housebound people could order plushies from on-line shops such as Ameriwade.

I think all of the e-store items should be in the W-shop and children (which is supposed to be the target market) could play the games (Booger gets an A for example is great for practicing those math skills) and earn Kinz cash. The kids then learn the value of working for money and saving for an item that they want. There are some awesome, cool, great things in the e-store that I would LOVE to have but I am not spending real cash on something virtual. There are only a few cool items left in the W-shop. New W-shop items are few and far between but it seems like e-store is new on a daily basis. So not fair since obviously the programming ideas and programming software is available.

It just doesn't make any sense to buy anything that is virtual. I do agree with other comments that everyone has a right to choose. It is just unfortunate that Ganz even created the e-store in the first place. Ganz is eventually going to run themselves out of business with the e-store as people will stop playing Webkinz due to the cost of e-store and lack of anything new in Webkinz World. I mean why play the games and earn Kinzcash when there is nothing to buy. If there is nothing to buy then why bother to play the game at all?

What a fun offer! I wasn't going to purchase at first, but I had to be honest with myself that I can spend $75 at the estore over a period of several months. I sure would love that cute cow to show for it. It is a wonderful incentive to stockpile estore points and a nice reward to those customers who do shop their little hearts out at the estore. Thanks Ganz! I for one, am not the least bit offended by your offer!

♪♫ I was checking the Webkinz Newz in the comment section and there area lot of poeople outraged over the purchase $75.00 to geta free pet. A lot of people aresaying it is a rip off. If I would of known, I wouldn't of purchased points last week to get free chef charms. Its really frustrating. I hope they don't plan on doing this every week. I mean people can't afford to do this every week. Right now I have 94,00 thousand points in my account. It will take me probably a year before I use them all up. ♪♫

Way to go Ganz. Show this cow to every kid who plays Webkinz and make them want it. Then say, parents, the only way the kids are going to get it now is to spend $75 today! OH SO WRONG! Now how many parents have to say no to their kids just before Valentine's Day?????
