So here you go: Deluxe cost-effectiveness calculator

But be warned! The results given by this calculator may not be correct! I am human and my math and programming could be TOTALLY wrong. Do your own math and make your own decisions.

HTH!
Jackal, I love the Deluxe Calculator! Nice work! The only thing I might tweek is that I have a hard time (because I'm a real blonde) remembering what the conversion is from e-Store points to $. So I had a hard time deciding what dollar amount to put in Question #2. Again awesome job but just a small suggestion for easier operation. Enjoy!

Good point DAYCAREMOM24, thanks for pointing that out, you're right. I've added a little note explaining the conversion. Do you mind taking another look and seeing if it helps?

1000 ponts-$1

4000 ponts-$3.80
5000 ponts-$4.60

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

They should also consider the fact that when you buy an eStore pet (with NO plushie) that they're getting 100% profit! When you go to the store and purchase a plushie with a code, you're paying the regular price and you are getting a plush animal as well as the online pet. With only the eStore pet, you're not getting a plushie; therefore, you should not be paying even 25% of what you would for the plushie and online pet. They would have a lot more people buying from the eStore.

Also, they could bring an eStore version of EVERY pet that they ever introduced each and every month. The fact that they could do that; but don't, makes me go.... The fact that they're SSSOOOO money-hungry (it can be proven by the fact that they don't lower the price for the eStore only pets, make no discounts for the eStore points purchases and/or not give a great discount for Deluxe family memberships with more family members) makes me wonder if they're all up there. When the economy is so messed up right now, you'd figure that they'd do anything they can to improve their earning ability.

I was one of the moms who called ganz and complained! in July our family Deluxe membership expired, my kids were sad, but at the new cost there was NO WAY I SAW ANY VALUE in what I was going to pay out monetarily. I told ganz I let the kids get club penguin and two other online things instead, and would be happy to spend ten bucks a year for ONE "pet" instead. ............... however....... being the best mom ever...... i did tell the kids IF ganz came back out with a family deluxe I would "look" into it !!! from what I have read here.... looks to be a good deal...

If you don't have a second acct, you can purchase the Family plan on your acct that already has deluxe, adding your nieces and nephews -and your acct will receive two boxes each month (because you already purchased a Deluxe acct on it and then added a Family Deluxe acct).

Hugs ♥mJb
Thanks so much for the info, I know Jackal tried answering earlier but didn't have all the info then (but he/she has been amazing - Thank you).
This really does tick me off. There should be an allowance for those that bought the yearly between the time the family went away and now. There is no way I am paying all that money again to get another yearly on another account and add extras. It's like a real slap in the face to those in the same situation as me.
But that said - I still love Webkinz! I just wish I could surprise my nieces and nephews with the deluxe benefits.

Slightly off-topic, they make it very hard to buy things at the eStore. Not everyone has a credit card. They don't accept paypal, they don't accept the gift credit cards you can buy in the store. So how do they expect us to pay? It is no fun asking a friend with a credit card to do it for you.

Default 5 Webkinz Accounts Benefit from One Deluxe Membership??

What does this mean?

Click the image to open in full size.

I thought [notranslate]Ganz[/notranslate] closed the Family Membership. I clicked on the "See Plans" button and got a page which includes the same old announcement of [notranslate]Ganz[/notranslate] discontinuing the Family Plan and nothing else the lead me to believe that this announcement is false advertising. Does someone know something else about this? Please!
