I think our family can live with that. If I'm reading it correctly, one family member (the one who pays the $45, technically) gets the Super Deluxe Item and all 5 members get all the Deluxe capabilities (the changing of colors, the extra job, the extra Kinzville Academy, and the monthly Deluxe gift box,) is that correct? Or, am I missing something?

Technically, if Ganz wanted to make an impression with the additional people added on, the first one should be at the $5.00 rate, the second one at $4.00, the third at $3.00, the fourth at $2.00 and the fifth at $1.00. This would then be $60.00 instead of $65.00. Sure, it's only $5.00; however, what better way to show how much you are saving than by giving you more discounts the more you add. Similar to cable television. The more you add to your package, the more of a savings it becomes. - imho
They should do that with deluxe points too...instead of charging $1 for 1000 points, $2 for 2000 points, &3 for 3000 points, and so on, they should make it like this:

1000 ponts-$1
2000 ponts-$2
3000 ponts-$2.90
4000 ponts-$3.80
5000 ponts-$4.60
6000 ponts-$5.30
7000 ponts-$5.90
8000 ponts-$6.40
9000 ponts-$6.80
10000 points-$7.10

so that you save 10 cents more each time

I agree with you - right now there's absolutely no cost saving involved in buying the points in bulk. Even if you spend $100 in one shot, you only get 100,000 eStore points! Surely if you're forking out as much as that, you should get some kind of volume discount.

I'm so excited this has been added. A little more expensive, but a small price hike seems reasonable when the family plan was such a great deal to begin with. I like being able to get the Super Deluxe item along with the family plan. I had already explained to my kids when our deluxe family account expired that we couldn't afford to renew. They were disappointed, but even though they're quite little they understood that $225 didn't make sense for something that had been $45. They weren't interested in the $2 per month option because the deluxe gift box is a big deal for them.

Thanks, Ganz, for hearing us and coming through on this.

Totally NOT TRUE. Ganz's announcement makes that clear, and there is also a fair bit of helpful explanation in this thread about what the bonus accounts do/don't get. You can also check the Wiki entry for Deluxe Membership.

I appreciate what Ganz plans on doing, but will still hold off on purchasing real or eStore until I actually see the replacement in effect and if the features are an acceptable alternative to the original. Even then, it may take a while to get back into purchasing. I've gotten out of the habit, and don't really miss spending the money like I used to.

I've also lost faith in the company. Someone mentioned "simmering rage" a few posts back. That describes how I've felt about Ganz since they took away the Deluxe Family Memberships and then let it sit so long without restoring it. Ganz lost my trust and damaged goodwill to the point that I don't feel that they are deserving of my dollars.

I still play daily, and have until April to decide if they have redeemed themselves. One of the deciders will also be the monthly gift box. I expect it on all accounts that I have to pay extra for, though do not expect the "Super Deluxe" item. As I mentioned earlier, I'll hold off on purchases and won't be changing my avvie or siggie until I see the restored Family Deluxe Membership option in place, active, and acceptable benefits.
