What's the guarantee that these new features are even going to work? I don't know how many POTM's we've bought only to not receive our gift boxes and then to be told for a while there that they are sorry but they can't help us since we've had problems before and now they are going to add another gift box feature? Are they going to let the rest of the website go and only focus on the "gold" membership areas? Will we have to "wait in line" to sign in if we are not a gold member?

As I said, I wouldn't have too much issue with this if the current website was working properly. I've failed many KVA classes due to their glitches, lost items that weren't replaced, didn't receive items that were promised.... Is the GOLD membership going to alleviate all this or just create a new area of frustration?

I also agree with the person who said they have over 300 webbies on one account. Isn't that deluxe membership? We are in the same boat.

I also don't like that the only way to get the exclusive item is to sign up one account for a year. Why not make the family account a little more and give each account that exclusive?

i can totally feel your pain and frustration. i. luckily, didn't have the potm issues..... but i haven't adopted a potm in the last 3 times. i would hope that the deluxe membership doesn't make a regular account have less importance.... i think the deluxe membership only comes into play once you are in the site.. such as giving you a different area to go to when you go to the clubhouse. so i don't think waiting in line to get into the site is an issue.

i do agree with the e-store item being available to the single account, but not to the family plan. i think that should be a touch more and add the e-store item.

Thanx for answering!

So basically what you are saying is to maintain a webkinz account you have to buy a plushie yearly, and the deluxe membership is just an optional addition to that. Hmmm...not too sure about all of this...am hoping the April Fools is a possibility, lol.

Thanx again!

yes it would seem this way. if you choose not ot buy the deluxe in any way, shape or form, your account would still go on as usual with the year expiration date.

then the deluxe membership would have it's own expiration date.

Aw man. I wish they'd just left it the same. It's already enough money for buying the webkinz pet. I hope everything for 'non-deluxe-members' just stays the same. anyone with me?

All I can say is... Noooooooooooooo! I thought webkinz was the site where you got the membership with buying a plushie! I am scared it will turn out like club penguin, the non-members get to do nothing! I am curently begging to get it, which is like a 50\50.i am outraged to hear the webkinz turned over to the dark side! I have exactly 100 webkinz, and i am STILL not getting the full experience.? I think ganz has gone money crazy! Oh, I also bid good luck to all the WIers that need to find jobs.

Same with you, I'm going to try 1 month to see how good it is.

Wow, Webkinz sure has changed and I don't think it is for the better. It used to be a fun website for kids to learn and take care of their pets and now it seems to have become all about making more money. It sees this new deluxe membership is way over the line. Children first had to deal with the estore and not being able to buy anything without their parents credit card and now they have to deal with this new deluxe memebership. Like it or not, these are tough economic times compared to when we first started buying Webkinz. Now, many people are unemployed, in forclosure, in credit card debt., or just saving in case of unforseen layoffs. Instead of being about to play with their Webkinz for comfort, children get on and see all the things that they now can't have on Webkinz, things that maybe their friends can afford. I too, think that my membership should be a deluxe one just based on the sheer number of $15 Webkinz that we own. I have told my children that we will not be buying any items from the estore or having the deluxe account just because I don't like the directions that Webkinz is heading. I have lost some respect for this virtual website.

is this serious? this seems like a bad April Fool's joke. Ganz i'm fed up with how you consistently try to drain us of every penny. This is a kid's game remember? it's supposed to be fun, let's try and keep it that way. SLOW DOWN with all the new stuff!

I do see your point. My grandkids and I play together and sometimes they see others with awesome stuff, and they can't afford them, so they feel bad. I have gotten them a few e-store items, but when you have to buy two of everything, it gets costly. The only thing I did do was get them each a complete set of charms because they were only $1.50 each. It is almost like school where one kid can afford name brand clothes and others can't. I, personally, was excited to see the family offer because I thought it would make great birthday gifts for them and isn't any more than I would spend on "real" stuff. They would probably rather get virtual stuff for here than real toys, because they love to come on Webkinz!!! I see both points of view, though.
