I am getting tired of deluxe membership. They make you pay a bunch of money and you don't even get anything. If webkinz goes out of business all that money invested and you won't have anything to show for it. Yes, they need to make some money, but these memberships seem like a big rip off.

Hee hee. It's actually a lot simpler than it sounds. Here's the deal:

- You sign up your account for an annual Deluxe membership. Cost: $45. This annual membership comes with all the usual Deluxe goodies: super exclusive item, WW Deluxe features, eStore points, monthly gift boxes.
- AT THE SAME TIME as you do this, you also "add on" one, two, three or four additional accounts. They will also get all the WW Deluxe features and monthly gift boxes for the coming year. Each account you add on will cost an additional $5.

Aaaand...you're done!

If you want the add-on accounts to have eStore stuff, I think the way it works is the same as when there were Family memberships: you log on to the eStore account that receives the Deluxe eStore points, use those points to buy whatever eStore item is wanted, log on to the add-on account that wants the eStore item, and enter the code in the Code Shop.

Yes, the bonus accounts WILL get the monthly gift boxes. Ganz said so in the announcement. But only the main account will get the super exclusive, like a mine cart ride.

I don't know, I think it's worth it.

$2 for the month-to-month Deluxe plan (i.e. $24/year) gets you 500 monthly eStore points and WW Deluxe features. But no monthly gift box or super-exclusive item.

$5 for the annual add-on Deluxe plan gets you WW Deluxe features AND the monthly gift box. Also, if you are organized and all the account holders agree, I think you will be able to share out all the eStore points that the main account gets, which adds up to (depending on how many add-on accounts there are) anywhere between (approximately) 680 and 1700 eStore points per account per month. All that and you pay $19 LESS than if you went with the month-to-month option. It's way better than not having it, IMO.

Okay, I see that Ganz has finally come up with a solution, and I've read the first page of the responses to it. I will post my usual post in complete disagreement, and then hush back up.

$45 for a basic "family" Deluxe account is ludicrous. Last year we got 5 accounts for $45, and, remember, this is all virtual stuff. It was sufficient to get my family to enroll, and we managed to get a bit of use out of it all.

Now? It's $45 for one account. One. Any more than that are $5 apiece. If Ganz wanted to be "fair" to families with fewer accounts, they might have started at the top of last year's price and counted down, rather than at the top and added on. To wit: $45 - 4 (extra accounts)*$5 = $25 for a single account. THAT would make sense to me. $25 for the first account, and add on from there.

But of course, this isn't the way Ganz chose to go.

We will not renew.

So basically, it looks like this is exactly like the old Family Deluxe Membership, except with a few advantages and disadvantages.

Advantages:
- One of the accounts actually gets the Super Exclusive Deluxe item; before with the old Family Deluxe Membership, none of the accounts on the plan got the Super Exclusive Deluxe item

Disadvantages:
- It costs a little more; instead of $45 for 5 accounts, it'll be $50 for 2 accounts, $55 for 3 accounts, $60 for 4 accounts and $65 for 5 accounts (on the other hand, this is more fair to people who don't need as many accounts with Deluxe - the more you need, the more you pay)
- Bonus accounts don't get eStore points, but that shouldn't be a big deal. You just get whoever owns the "main" account to buy your eStore items for you with the points that it gets as part of the Deluxe membership.

Exactly the same:
- All accounts can only be added to Deluxe at the time of purchase.
- All accounts get the Deluxe features on WW
- All accounts get Deluxe pricing in the eStore
- All accounts get the monthly gift boxes

Hmm...at first i thought it was a bad deal, but the way you explain it, it sounds better!
Thanks for breaking it down, that helps.

Is it $5 a month? The way it read I thought it was $5 a year. That doesn't make sense that it would be $5 a month - that would be $60 for a year, when a deluxe membership is only $45 a year...
