Since I quit doing something that I shouldn't have been doing something that was bad for me, (involves a lighter and a pack of something) my husband buys me one Webkinz a week for reward. At this point I may stop that and just save our money. All we have to do is buy one, (1) Webkinz a year to keep our account open. Maybe since Ganz wants to be stingy, I will too!

That is not counting the loss from my husband's, my son's and my daughter's accounts from which they will also NOT be buying Webkinz to adopt!

I must say, this is a ghastly piece of decision making. I purchased the Deluxe family membership for 4 accounts. To move from $45 to $180/annum is doable for me financially but not mentally or morally.

Really? Really? Who are their marketing personnel that believe children have funds like this and parents/guardians/adults are gullible enough to purchase one membership to replace two to five?

Bring back the Family Option or I will not renew! We need a petition on this one.

I buy a lot from the eStore due to having Deluxe Family membership, we get the option of newest pets early and the deluxe pricing is good too. I won't be doing that any more.

Family membership was ideal with three of my DD's having accounts as well as myself and DH. I'm not considering renewing our five accounts with single memberships, since it'll cost me £148. The Family option was affordable and gave the kids something extra, which is all it is at the end of the day! They were the ones we started Deluxe for and they are the ones who will suffer.

We had enjoyed the family membership option for all of our 25 accounts, and that was already expensive for pixels only but it was fun... there is no way we are going to pay for any single deluxe membership, though. We just renewed all the deluxe accounts recently so we will have it for a year, but after that it will be gone.

Maybe if no one renews and calls to tell them why they might change their mind and come and put the family option back on. I can' t afford to pay for that many memberships.

Alot of people are going to be calling Ganz tomorrow, including myself.

It seems like I'm always saying .... "just when I think Ganz couldn't sink any lower ...." and so now I find myself saying it again but this time they have sunk to the lowest of the lows.

This has left such a sour taste in my mouth. First the Science theme, then five exclusives gone (and I'm still stuck getting that dang Robot Clock ~ when the heck are they going to retire THAT one ??), and now the Family Deluxe Membership is gone. [heavy sigh]

Many people do not know that Ganz is a privately-held family company headed by one man, Mr. Howard Ganz, President and CEO. Because Ganz has no shareholders or investors, Ganz does not have to report any of its corporate financial information to anyone outside of Canada Revenue and the IRS, so little is actually known about the true worth or the actual profit margin of just the Webkinz Division of Ganz Corp. alone. Despite my having scoured the internet for any scrap of reliable information pertaining to the profit/loss/value aspect of the Webkinz Division, all that I have found can fit in the little "blurb" above, and even then the information is over two years old, but it manages to sum things up ~

I think the Ganz family has enough money in their personal bank accounts such that they can let us have our Family Deluxe Membership option.
thank you sooooooooooooo much for always reminding of these facts. and for always putting it in a way that takes the words right out of my mouth..................

Tashytoot, ITA! We're eStore fans (not tons per month, but a least several things per month), and last year we bought two individual annuals, but we've gotten used to deluxe and opted for one family plan for all accounts. It was a great value, but now we're USED to having deluxe on all the accounts. This will not work for us. (At least we have time to wean ourselves off, I guess! LOL!)

Default Re: New Deluxe Membership Option Added, Family Membership Option Retired

I didnt read this whole thread. But I am VERY disappointed that the family deluxe has been retired. As a family of 5, we need to get the most for our $. We NEVER bought a single thing in the estore before we upgraded to deluxe. Now that we have deluxe we are always adding more $ to our estore account to buy things that we just dont have enough points to buy. I can honestly say as a family 5 five with 9 accounts in the household, we spend more $ on WW than ever before. I guess that is about to come to an abrupt stop!



Ganz you got it alll wrong with this one!!!! And no we will NOT renew our deluxe when it expires.

Exclamation Re: New Deluxe Membership Option Added, Family Membership Option Retired

This is very disappointing For families with multiple children and multiple accounts the family option was perfect. I convinced two other families to purchase the multi-account membership and they were very pleased. None of us is pleased with the new policy. If all accounts can't be "deluxe", probably none of them will be.
My family spends a fair amount in the estore , but the notion of spending $225 up front (even knowing that $205 of those dollars will come back slowly as estore points over the course of the membership), is simply over the top. I feel that Ganz should rethink their decision
