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

Since the family plan is gone, we can't do deluxe anymore when it expires. My dad barely let us do it for Christmas because we were buying nothing. Now, my mom says we can just keep our accounts going with the $5. holiday little kinz at Target, which will cost less than half of the family deluxe anyway. It's disappointing.

My mom did say that each of us could do the $2. a month for the month of our birthdays if we want. Maybe some other people can convince their parents to do the same thing.

"The Super Deluxe Item is awarded to 1 Year subscribers immediately as an added gift. All other subscribers are able to obtain this gift if 12 months of continuous deluxe membership is retained at any price level (Twelve 1 month subscriptions, Four 3 month subscriptions, or Two 6 month subscriptions)."

Now how about they give me an option that doesn't include the e-store points but gives me the gift boxes and costs considerably less than the Individual Annual Deluxe membership.
I don't think the $2 a month plan is one that will give you the super deluxe gift if you have it for 12 months, but I will have to look at that again.

I don't expect any of them will today either, even though it is WK Day & they have yet to get the disappointing news that they won't be deluxe anymore soon.

I agree with scaling back. I decided to look over my stockpile of unused codes and start considering other options. Then I got a little panicky because I've been collecting so long. I may need the whole 11 and a bit months to ween myself if they don't put the Deluxe Family Membership back ...

Marnabear , It is clearly spelled out in the quote I posted that 12 continuous months of membership including 12 1 Month subscriptions will get you the Super Deluxe Item but not until your 12th month. I was shocked when I read that.

For the people that want the Super Gift item & not the e-store points this is definitely worth it for 1 account. Of course I'd be surprised if at the end of the 12 months they would still honor this. Since the monthly gift boxes are hit or miss with the gift items some people don't seem to care about getting those either. I certainly wouldn't go this route for 5 accounts but I may scale down my individual one when it expires next year since I'm fed up with the e-store anyway.

I called, was polite and the girl said they are collecting all the summaries for the boss. No one has called saying they are happy they retired the family membership. And, on a side note, I figured out the ganz twitter, twitted mine, and then realized I sent it to thousands of folks on my facebook. (There is a new default setting on Twitter that sends all to facebook, unless you change it. Luckily someone called to ask what was up, LOL) Anyway, lots of people know about this now.

The CSR seemed to think that if enough people complain, Ganz will change their minds. Also, if eStore sales are down. So let's hope.

And no matter how much I wanted birthstone pets, I will not cave in. I will not cave in.

I went to the eStore today but didn't buy anything. I looked at the Sunflower Lion, but I won't be buying it. $12.50 will stay in my plastic. I think I'll start a running tab and see just what I would have spent...

The Facebook thing could be good to spread the word, that may end up being a happy whoops!

That's a great idea, Aries! I think I will keep a tab as well.
