Yes, the $2 option will satisfy those who just want the extra rares and activities and don't care about the estore points, but the kids don't care much about those. Mine just want the box, the coin and the free vacation each month. Unfortunately, that's gone now because our family account was expiring at the end of next week and I can't afford 4 individual memberships and won't pick and rotate the "one lucky kid" who will get the membership each year!

My feeling is this:

The only way you can make a difference is by NOT RENEWING.

They will follow the "lack" of money. It is the only way you can show them that you are serious. If no one renews, they'll change it quick. Money talks.

I, too am disappointed that the family plan is gone. I play as much or more than my kids but will not be able to afford paying for it for 3 accounts I will be bummed to go back to non deluxe status.

Not really a choice in our case. There will be no deluxe renewals, or future estore purchases either for that matter.

I can't believe they thought any of us purchased it for the deluxe prize machine and extra dailies! That is just insulting, it is like they read over the websites, saw people writing about how great all those extra dailies were, and then had a brainstorm, "Let's give our customers NOTHING. No monthly gift, no wish token, no estore points and STILL get them to pay us for Deluxe!" Do they really think that little of us? That we can not multiply $2 times 5 and then multiply $10 times 12 and see that it is $120 with no estore points, no monthly gift, just a bunch of cheese and cracker platters and a chance to buy a $12,000KC bed a month earlier than everyone else. So what, you'll get a big wooden roller coaster contraption that can't be removed from the account, takes up a whole yard and you won't receive it till 12 months from now anyway. Do they think we are interested in that? Who would be interested in that? Paying $24 a year to get an extra spin on a wheel? That is just going too far.

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

Just to let you know I got an answer from Ganz estore to my "will you still get the gold deluxe hat? because it is not listed on the information page at all". Apparently if you are a new deluxe customer, then you will still get the hat. However if you are an existing customer and already have the hat, you will not receive another one upon your renewal.

There is so much on the webkinz world now that is restricted and not available unless you add more money, more money, more money (Zums=more money, Fairy Forest=more money, Mire Forest=more money, Woodland Forest=more money, in order to be able to play in these areas, you HAVE to BUY a charm or figurine, or a Zum or Kinzclip).

This one year family deluxe membership now seems like it was used as the enticement to get us all addicted and then raise the price to make us pay more or have to disappoint all the members on the account. This is really unreasonable and appears to be just greedy.

I am TIRED of wasting my time fighting on here every week just for you to show us basic decency. Is this all just to drum-up more attention to the deluxe option? Afterall, negative attention is better than none at all, right?

"If we take it away & then let them fight & struggle to convince us to bring it back, they will scoop it up as quick as they can!"

I'm not even sure if I want to renew now, even if they do us the HUGE favor of bringing back the family option. Here's an idea - you keep your completely valueless pixels and I keep my real world money! Now that sounds like a good plan! Thanks for making me think about it Ganz!!

Good points, I hadn't even considered how many of the figurines, charms, and klips I have entered on our 10 accounts.

Not that it probably matters much to most....
