I even told the CSR that my kids bought Ty Beanie Babies 2.0 yesterday in protest - still the same song and dance. They do have the script down pat. Development this am - my ASD daughter was planning a Webkinz bday party - now she is not so sure. UGH!

Our family membership expires in May I am so disappointed. There is no way 2$ a month for 5 accounts for a year is a way for people to better afford it.

Ganz should NOT have gotten rid of the family option that was a true bargain for family members. So disappointing I've been deluxe for a year and loved it but I guess thats the end I will not pay individually for all accounts. Who can afford that?!

Ok, the option for $2.00 a month is a good idea for those that can't offer the year, but as for me with 5 accounts on my deluxe membership, this new option of $45.00 + the super prize for 1 account does not work for me. So now if I want full benefits its going to cost me $45.00 per account. Has Ganz lost there mind...... There is no way I will be paying that for each account especially the way the economy is. In my option the family plan for $45.00 was the best deal, for parents who play and have children......WAY TO GO GANZ!!!!!! Guess next year I won't renew it, and I have decided not to buy anything else from the estore. I have had enough. Thanks for listening.

Does anybody see that you DO NOT GET THE MONTHLY GIFT FOR $2???
And now it's $45 per PERSON.
What a rip-off.
Bad idea, Ganz.

No more Family Deluxe option anymore which is going to stink for a lotof us.


YEs, I can't afford deluxe without the family option. Can we start a petition or something to get it back? I thought GANZ was supposed to be "family friendly?

I can requote practically everyone on here. Ganz=Greed. "Retiring" the Family Deluxe option for memberships without notice, nonetheless, is Outrageous and Inconsiderate. If they were "loosing" money on it, they could have let us know, but no. With all the new Webkinz and toys they are coming out with they aren't loosing, just upsetting more than 1/2 of webkinz users and loyal fans.
Maybe they will bring it back. How many more people are more upset that the family membership is gone than people that are happy they changed it? Could they not have all the options there for added options for people of all budgets and family sizes?
RUDE Ganz. Completely LAME, and MEAN!

We just renewed our family option but agree with your commentary - we have lots of Kinzcash and Ganz seems to be pointing us to estore ...so we will probably not renew deluxe either ...the family plan worked for us with 3 accounts but not at $72 a year (the $2 option) or $135 (the full option) rather than $45. Not going to happen in our family budget either.

I agree with you! You get the gift, and everything for 5 people! Then you just come and take it away, and only give back the evrerything- NO GIFT for $2! And now $45? You expect that to get you more business? No way, Jose.
If you think that it's a better way to get more money, trust me. You're just losing it.

This is exactly what I was thinking. Let them take it all away first and then, to placate us and prove what a great company they are, they will offer something back in return, because they heard us, and they listen. It won't be what we had. It won't be anywhere near as good. But we'll be panting for it all the same, and they asume we will jump through hoops to take it. And we should just be happy that they were so kind to at least give us something.

At the end of the day, they are just pixels on a screen. They are just stuff. They mean nothing. And Ganz has just shown us that we, their customers, mean nothing.

I can interact and have fun the same way on other sites, and not be charged anywhere near what Ganz wants from us. On sites that work much better than Webkinz too. They are computer images. C'mon Ganz. Get a clue!

We will not be Deluxe after we expire, and we will not be purchasing any new items either, real or virtual. And not just Webkinz, but we won't buy any Ganz items. If they can't show support and thanks to the families that use their site, then they do not get our support either.

And I did notice that really cool things are on the Deluxe side of events to do today. We are all Celebrating, why not Celebrate all Webkinz accounts today with fun amazing things available to everyone? Happy Anniversary fellow Webkinz buddies.
To Ganz maybe we can have a more fun and fair Webkinz day NEXT year. I am too upset to give you a high five for 5 years to you. Sick they way Greed is in the Ganz World of Webkinz.
