Default Webkinz Deluxe Membership Added to Webkinz World!

A WI Front Page entry has been added:

Webkinz Deluxe Membership Added to Webkinz World!

Thanks to RobKinz for letting us know that, after a brief maintenance last night, Ganz has added a "Deluxe Membership" to Webkinz World. The Deluxe Membership comes in many flavors and each pricing level earns you different benefits. The pricing ranges from $5/month all the way to $45 for an annual membership and you will receive different types of exclusives (both tradeable and non-tradeable), monthly "Ganz points(?)", extra activities, monthly gift boxes, and a special Kinz Chat zone for subscribing.
At this point, we're assuming the "Ganz points" are related to the new ads we've been seeing in the eStore and that these Ganz points are not Kinz Cash in Webkinz World.

I REALLY don't like the new addition because if you are a Bonus delulxe member you will have to PAY even MORE than if you were just a regular member. But I mean... this is going on with ALL kid sites these days, like Club Penguin, Dizzywood, and now WEBKINZ WORLD!!! IT IS HORRIBLE!

RATS, I was just finishing my upload of the images below to send you thinking I was going to get the 'scoop' this time... Anyway, here are the two I captured other than the one you included above...

When I first saw this I was like..."Deluxe Membership?" My account has nearly 300 webbies isn't that deluxe enough with all the money I've spent..not to mention I own every item they have offered at the estore. Oh well, just another ganz money making scheme.

Well, as some of the parents mentioned on another thread, it's one way to make sure your kids get a new gift box every month and costs less than a new plushie. I won't be buying it, but some people will. That's cool I guess, if it keeps the site running. I just don't want to see too many "exclusive" areas on the regular WW site only for those who spend extra. I thought the magical forest was bad enough when I first joined!

AHH!! I Just got laid off from my job and now this! I am actually scheming how to scrounge up $45! I guess we could just get one month for $5 and wait to see what the "exclusive" estore quality item is and if it is worth it, pay all $45 next month.
They are just introducing too much too fast. Kinz clips, caring valley, signiture series, E-store bunny, now a special membership. Do they know we are in a global recession?? LOL!

I think this is interesting and can't wait to find out more. For me it would be much less expensive than trying to keep up with all of the new plush! I can't wait to hear more about it

Wow, they found another way to get money out of us parents. As if we don't spend enough on everything else they have to offer!

Not really to happy to see this. This was one web site that didn't cost a lot to get on and now the deluxe version is $45 / family per year. It reminds me of Club Penguin. Webkinz was a great value for the price of an animal. You do have a choice to buy it or not. At this point I hope they don't take anything away from the regular Webkinz and move it to the deluxe membership. I love to trade and I hope that doesn't move only to the deluxe Webkinz. I feel sorry for the kids who won't be able to get their parents to buy this. It is suppose to be for kids after all. This seems to be too much money to spend in this economy. I guess as long as the regular Webkinz stays the same and they don' t move trading and other features to deluxe only, I will be happy. Weather I buy a deluxe version just depends on what the site has to offer. I know this already upset my daughter who is totally in to Webkinz. What does everyone else think?
