your mom is right it is not worth it.
All you get are a few more activities , the option to put some more clothing on each pet, and one more rare item a day. (The rare item is most likely to be available when you are busy and so
are activites that have some value (No more then one a day).

for the 24$ a year your are much better off buying a few real webkinz.

If the gift box is add to this account the the price it ok to my openion. but I am not even sure of this.

The Greedy-Ganz that stole Webkinz Day --- Thanks for liberating me from being a slave to my computer & spending my real money on your valueless pixels! Eliminating the deluxe family option was a HUGE wake-up call! I'm no longer your slave! I will be saving a lot of time & money in my life now & reconnection with my friends & family in the real world. Escapism can become a prison when it gets out of control. No one owns me! Much less a greedy company that takes every opportunity to show it's customers how little it values them! Time to put this addiction into it's place! I am going to go enjoy my REAL LIFE now! And I encourage others to do themselves the favor also!

Well this move goes to show Ganz is just another $$$$$$ making business. It's all about the mighty BUCK. I personally don't care for the deluxe, I did it for the kids. I don't like spending money of items that are not tangible. We will NOT BE RENEWING!! I've had my fill of ganz. No more spending on stuffed animals so I can waste my time on the computer!

I could almost stomach a revision to 3 or 4 accounts but eliminating all together has really made me think.

In my opinion, it's not worth it. You don't get the monthly gift box or the extra 3000 e-store points each month. Those are the things that made Deluxe worth it, I think.

We even added my husband even though he didn't pitch in, and one of my daughter's friends since we had one extra spot open. It is a nice feature I must say, plus it isn't bad if you have someone to go in with you on. We split our eStore points and it just works out. Except for daddy, he gets no points since he failed to contribute. We let my daughter's friend have some though.

Sorry, I should have done this in my response above!

Umm I hate to be the one to burst your bubble, but that's the option they just got rid of. I was very lucky and just renewed my family's plan, but after it runs out I will no longer be able to afford to keep them on deluxe, and the $2 a month plan is a joke. You don't get a gift box or estore points. Why bother? To me this is just greed plain and simple, and I am FURIOUS. I think that there is no reason to eliminate the family deluxe because there is this pathetic excuse for another choice, and I think Ganz has some real gull announcing this on Webkinz Day. Thanks a lot Ganz, way to treat your customers! I was looking forward to the calibration all week. Now I just want to turn the computer off and find something to do that isn't milking every last cent they can get from my family and me.
SHAME ON YOU GANZ!!!!

Before my kids got me so addicted to Webkinz I spent my money on iTunes. Guess what? iTunes, I think that I may be coming back! My iPod could use some refreshing, and I could use some new clothes. I also miss eBay! I was just a Webkinz junkie. $20-30 bucks a week alone for purchases for just myself. Um, that is going to be cut as I have said before. My daughter is trying to get me on Poptropica to play now. She really likes it, and so does my son. I may check it out and it is free. Nothing to buy in order to play.

Oh dear, that was before I found out that Ganz had cancelled the Family Deluxe. Oh, you have missed my rant and rave I am afraid.
