Not going to happen in our family budget either.

I know it would cost me $225.00 a year. I have better use for that, like food.

If Ganz is going to show no support for us whatsoever, why should we show them our support? I don't think I'm going to want anything from Ganz this year- except I already got a Webkinz, but I wanted that one SO badly...
Anyways, I think we should start a GANZ boycott. Don't buy webkinz, estore things, or anything made by this greedy company. Quote this if you agree!
START THE GANZ BOYCOTT!

Msg rec'd from Ganz:Hello,Thank you for your inquiry.With recent changes to the membership options available to regular and Deluxe Webkinz members, we have decided to discontinue our Deluxe Family Membership program. Our research showed that this option was causing the most confusion among our members, and decided it no longer fit into our product mix.All members who currently have Family Memberships will of course be able to continue to use these memberships until they expire.Please note that we have also introduced a $2 monthly deluxe membership in order to provide consumers with a more economical way to access all the Webkinz World benefits that are associated to Deluxe Membership.

Ganz: I see no "economy" other than our own!
Me: how about introducing more affordable Webkinz pets?
Ganz: okay! How about a Signature Webkinz for $30, a Small Signature for $18, or an Endangered Signature for $30+?
Me: ... you're not getting the point.
Ganz: I see no "point"!
Me: well, how about making Deluxe Membership more affordable, then?
Ganz: all right! $2 per month per person!
Me: ... okay, that's a little better--
Ganz: but you don't get the exclusive gift.
Me: THAT'S THE WHOLE REASON WHY I WENT DELUXE!
Ganz: tough luck, missy!
Me: be more considerate of people who can barely afford Webkinz alone!
Ganz: why are you still here?
Me: to get you to change the fact that you're greedy.
Ganz: once again... tough luck, missy! You're making me tired. Please leave now.
Me: not until you change!
Ganz: *snaps fingers and security people drag me off*
Me: I will be baaaack...
Ganz: I just had a wonderful new idea! Super-signature Webkinz! $100 apiece! Ha, I'm brilliant! And let's make Deluxe Membership... $45 per person, per month! Muahaha!

Not saying all people at Ganz are like this. Just the person who's giving the yes-or-no to discontinuing money-saving ideas and introducing money-spending ideas.

I feel that all of this mess with the "retirement" of the Family Deluxe has somehow dampened mine and my family's Webkinz Day celebration. My daughter wasn't even that excited this morning over her 5 yr. gift. She is really ticked off about the whole situation and my son is just upset in knowing that he won't be deluxe anymore when our membership expires. I have found myself stuck on Twitter most of the morning scouring over the tweets and doing my campain to complain to Ganz. Thanks to those that have started their campaign with me! Maybe it won't change anything, but at least it will let someone know that a few of us are not happy with this new "retirement" that has happened.

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.

Yah. My kids and I noticed that too. Hmm. Just seems a little crooked doesn't it. They make all this hype about how special Webkinz Day is, get people pumped up for a week, then punish the kids who are not Deluxe with lame activities. Then they up the price of Deluxe so it is ridiculously unaffordable. Sure seems like they are just shooting themselves in the foot. If they don't bring the family plan back we will also let the accounts expire. Not interested in playing without Deluxe and not interested in paying $225 per year for 5 accounts at full benefits.
