Well given that they don't give sumptin' for nuttin' I would be surprised if they don't take that benefit away from the 2buckers.

Ok I am confused.

$2 for 1 Month
$15 for 3 Months
$25 for 6 Months
$45 for 1 Year Correct?


for one account only.

for me to replace my 10 Family accounts (2 x$45) now it would be 10 x $45 = $450.

How is it that you can buy 1 month for $2 and 1 year for $45? that does not add up!!!

You could just buy 3 months for $6 ($2 x 3) 6 months for $12 ($2 x 6) and 1 year for $24.

How can they even dare ask for $45????!!!!!

Rockermom, the $2 acct is not full benefits. You don't get a monthly gift box or estore points. You do get to do the dailies and curio shop rares.

In my opinion, the 2 dollar package was offered as a token (fake) symbol of goodwill. The elements of the Deluxe package that people REALLY want are NOT offered in that silly package. It was just put out so Ganz could say that they offered something cheap in these difficult economic times. It's a totally bogus attempt at looking kind.

Do you guys realize what all this commotion is. Its all about pixels. I like to be deluxe because i can decorate my room faster. I agree so hole heartedly, i for one am totally addicted. But you see, as we kept adding on accounts, it became a three hour process to do all the dailies, let alone looking for the ghost and leprecaun and rockets. I have to break myself from this and i will. I hope all of you can ease up too. I will still keep a few accounts, but i learned that if you have patients, eventually, you can get the items, and i need to do other things with my life. We can have fun and not buy there estore items and deluxe, we just have to be less greedy. I will live better knowing i am not spending so much wasted money on nothing.

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. For a list of the available membership upgrades, please visit: www.ganzestore.com/membershipcategory.

Thank you,

Ganz eStore Support
Ah, yes, spin, spin and more spin. Translate "decided it no longer fit into our product mix" to read "we figured we could make a bundle more cash off you if we ditched this loss leader" and there you have it. I was upset yesterday, but today I'm just disgusted. I will not renew any Deluxe anything when my family plan is up, I will not buy anything else from the e-store, and other than my long-awaited Border Collie plush, I'm not buying any more pets for the next long while, either.

Before all this drama started, I decided to make a scrapbook of all my Webkinz rooms and pets so if I decided to stop playing I'd have it to look back on. This may sound a bit nuts (my DH thinks I'm off my rocker) but after someone here pointed out we don't own our pixels, we're just renting them from Ganz until they decide to pull the plug, I thought it would be nice to have something in hand vs. just on their servers. I'm happy I started this now that the Deluxe has hit the fan *vbg*.

No, it isn't like that - you're not comparing correctly.

The $2/month plan doesn't give you the monthly gift boxes nor the monthly eStore points. So sure, you could do the $2/month thing for a year and spend $24, and thus save $21 compared to the yearly membership, but you would also lose out on $41 worth of eStore points and not get the monthly gift boxes either.

HTH.

I LOVE that idea! Very creative and you can update it as you add rooms. My DH would think it kooky too but I take lots of screen shots of my pets and rooms.

I too, do not plan to do ANY deluxe memberships after mine retires next month. WE had the family deluxe and loved it on all 5 of our accounts. I will spend what points I have left in the e-store, but then, no more for the e-store. If you ask me, they will lose money in the long run, if people who had the family refuse to renew. They made a good deal of money off me this last year in the e-store, but no more, UNLESS they decide to put it back. So, I hope you and I are not the only ones who don't renew. If we all don't renew, they WILL notice.
