You really think that's all people pay the $2 for? :rolleyes: That's pretty simplistic.

Add me to the list of people who's mad about this! We got the family deluxe right before they discontinued it. So we'll have it for almost the next year. After that, nope. No more deluxe, unless they bring it back AND it's reasonable. No way will I pay more to get less, that's just silly.

I also am wondering if they just told us they were planning on bringing it back to stop the phone calls and to shut us up!

I discovered how greedy GANZ was at Christmas when i lost out on what i wanted and now it will be GOOD BYE to the deluxe accounts also for me. They are really losing interest anyway and now they do this !!!! The stores here by me are big tourist attractions and they are not going to sell anymore either., because they can't deal with GANZ now.

So far there have been 82 comments here and most not in favor of no family memberships. Most people don't write so I think there must be a lot of unhappy people and the ones who write are just a fraction of the unhappy users. Seems to me this was a very bad business move on Ganz part and they will loose a lot of customers in the long run. I can't see they how they think it was a good move to discontinue the family membership I know I will be spending a lot less money now in the E store. Even the 2.00 option is a lot for kids and they don't even get the extra gifts..

I know I've said this before but I wanted to go on record again: because they pulled the Family Membership disappearing stunt I have not spent a SINGLE dollar on my WebKinz account this month in the e-store or in real life. At the very end of April we bought a single $2 membership for an expired account that was formerly on our Family Plan so we could send all the cool items from that account to other family members. That is about to run out and that's the end of it. I will NOT spend another dime in the e-store as long as they continue this nonsense - and likely never again after that. There's a good chance we're even done buying from the regular store, too. They have really pushed the greed envelope past the limit for us.

I think there is nothing wrong with people enjoying Deluxe with the $2 option.

I just don't see where taking AWAY an option that a lot of loyal members participated in is a good thing.

Why not have both options available?


The $2 option for people to try out Deluxe......or people with just one account......or little kids (or adults) who can earn the $2 for their Deluxe account.


AND the Family Deluxe for Members like me....with a large family......with five or more accounts who see the benefit of spending the extra money for the Deluxe FAMILY accounts.

There are a lot of us (Fam Deluxe Members) who got a lot of use and enjoyment from these deluxe accounts and I know if they are like my family.....we won't renew (and therefore spend the extra Deluxe money) . it is a shame but my family won't lose any sleep over it.

And also, technically the deluxe is NOT two dollars, because the minimum ammount of points you can buy is 10,000-which equals $10.00. Ganz needs to screw there heads tighter again, and bring back family deluxe!
I think that deluxe was a rip-off from the start!:goo:

I, too, am very upset with Ganz for discontinuing the Family plan. I have 5 accounts and my daughter has 5 accounts. There is no way I can afford to cover all accounts now so when My membership expires I can't afford to renew. So much for Deluxe Memberships. I have been addicted for 3 years, have over three hundred pets and shop regularly at the E-Store. Enough is enough!!! I'm not filing bankruptcy over a stupid game. If you're not a deluxe member there isn't that much to do anymore. You can't even get the good rares.

I never really liked deluxe or eStore, but I agree that they could have left the family deluxe on there! Even though 2.00$ isn't a lot, it sure is for a deluxe membership where you hardly get anything at all! Plus, I know that a lot of people liked family deluxe, so why did they need to take that away?! It is sort of pointless, and I don't think a lot of people will buy it. Ganz will hopefully realize this and put family membership back on market.
