As I understand it, The main account (the $45 one) gets the super exclusive (like the ride) and the monthly gift box that contains the exclusive clothing item. Each add on account (for $5 each, up to 4 additional accounts) gets the monthly gift box that contains the exclusive clothing item.

The real difficulty for families is deciding which account is the main account and gets the super exclusive item. The e-store account that made the purchase gets the estore points and it is up to the parents to spend them equably

I haven't looked at the hard details of this yet, but this is a much more palatable option than what is currently available. There was no way I was going to renew Deluxe come this holiday season but I'll re-consider now.

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

I would like to point out that even before on the family plan, only one member got the estore points, so that has not changed it is exactly the same. The main bonus to this is Super Exclusive Bonus Gift item and that is really cool.

I like this new option, even though we pay $5 for each account at least it gives the Super Exclusive Gift which was not available in a family plan before. My kids have lost interest in Webkinz & I have taken over their accounts and so I have gotten used to getting monthly gift boxes and having those items available to trade and still one for me to keep I was rather spoiled to this until my deluxe expired at the first of this month. I will probably renew my deluxe in a month or two add one extra account so that I still will have one deluxe clothing to keep and one to trade. Plus I get the cool Super Gift!

I don't mind paying an extra $5 for a year's worth of deluxe gifts & games on a 2nd account. In my mind that works out to about $4 a month for 2 deluxe memberships and that's not bad

I like the new option I do I do! Thanks Ganz!

Default Re: New Deluxe Membership Coming Soon for Families with Multiple Players

Thanks FIA for posting the initial information and to Jackal for the breakdowns of the various plans. Our current Family Deluxe expires in Oct and now we'll be able to renew. It'll be $20 more than last year, but each account gets the monthly giftbox. With the 41,000 estore points figured in, I'll only be out $24 in cash. Last year our family deluxe only cost $1 when you figure you had 41,000 estore points and the bonus 3,000 they gave out in December.
BTW, my kids were told the estore points were mine to spend as I saw fit since they were paid for by my credit card. I don't even have a Webkinz account, so I purchase charms and figurines at the estore and give the kids the code.
For the people who said this change will cause children to be greedy and stiff their siblings - iin our case, if the estore points have to go directly into a WW account, the receiving child will have to spend as I direct, or owe me the real-world cash for any points they spend without permission. It'll be a group buy when we renew and as responsible members of the family, they won't cheat each other without a penalty.

- $96: 4 accounts month-to-month (all accounts are limited)
- $180: 4 annual accounts
- $200: 4 accounts in 6-month pieces
- $240: 4 accounts in 3-month pieces

You can see that, with four accounts, you can save $36 per year over the month-by-month option by going the add-on route.

(Although for those of you who are saying you liked the Family Deluxe option better, I agree! It was cheaper and simpler! But it was also way too good of a deal to last.)
Oh. Well.. I should've done the math, but didn't feel like it, oops. xD
Thanks though! For now I decided I'm just making my main asian account deluxe for the bonus activities and stuff. I guess theres no need to have the other 3 deluxe, but if I change my mind I'll try hard to remember that the annual with the add on's is the cheapest way to go. Thanks!

I still think the family membership was a way better deal. Besides it kinda of a waste to spend $20 to add four more accounts, I could use that $20 on something else. Oh well, at least it better than $2 membership, to me that membership is a total rip off. I would never buy $2 one. LOL
