UPDATED: Ganz Adopts New Policy For Pet of the Month!
UPDATE: This news has been corrected by Ganz. There have been no Pet of the Month policy changes and the missing loot bags are possibly due to a bug!
We have breaking news emerging from our forum about the Pet of the Month. A user from our forum, skysierra, has reported and the staff here at Webkinz Insider has confirmed that Ganz has changed their policy on Pet of the Month adoptions.
This new rule is especially important to those who trade for Pet of the Month items! It is rather confusing, so I'll use an example to illustrate the rule:
Let's say that today you have adopted 4 Pet of the Month pets over the past few months. In addition, you have also traded for 3 other Pet of the Month items that you really liked. So, you have adopted 4 Pet of the Month Webkinz, but have 7 Pet of the Month items, right? Ganz's new policy will not award you any Pet of the Month items until your Pet of the Month adoptions equals the number of Pet of the Month items in your account! In this situation, you would have to activate #5, #6, #7 and get no Pet of the Month items until you activate an 8th Pet of the Month!
One of our staff members has spoken with Customer Support at Webkinz and confirmed the new policy. For those that have already adopted and were not aware of the policy, there is a one time exception on an account to replace the item that you did not receive with the adoption.
For those that have traded for Pet of the Month items, we suggest that you KinzPost any "extra" items to a secondary account before adopting a new Pet of the Month on the main account.
April Fools? Please? No, huh...what a lousy policy! Why would they punish their customers for receiving gifts from friends? It just doesn't seem fair! Maybe they will rethink this decision. Maybe this is their April Fools joke. One can dream.
What is Ganz trying to do???? I can tell you they are pushing people away from Webkinz! This is totally ridiculous!!!! So waht if you sent a POTM GIFT to one of yur own accounts? I am still confused...do we need to Kinzpost them all out to another account before we adopt????? My brain is not computing this.......
This is disappointing. But, I for one, am glad to have the heads up. I have only adopted 1 POTM and have all of the items from trades. I am going to finally adopt one this month.
Again thanks for the heads up.
i ALSO MUST add, that they claim they have no way to track it if you don't get the pOTM, this is proof that they indeed do. I don't like a company doing business this way. Now, can anyone tell me when did POTM start, how many have we had? I guess we have to count how many POTM items in each account versus how many animals? DO I have this right? This is totally insane!

I am waiting on more clarification. I am a bit confused. I have several animals that were entered before POTM ever started, and i am guessing that you can't have more POTM items in the account than you have animals.......i just can't remember when the POTM started to be able to check......

So does this mean that if we have an animal previously adopted months ago, that is now the PET OF THE MONTH, it will count towards the total amount of POTM adoptions, so that you could have one extra POTM item in your account for that pet?
