Webkinz429 is an unknown quantity at this point

Thumbs down Wow That Is Not Kewl!

Hey Everybody Haven't You Always Noticed That Webkinz Prices Were High. I Think I Have The Answer There Is A New Brand Of Animals Out, They're Practically Identical To Webkinz. They Are Called "shining Stars." They Are So Similar To Webkinz So Thanks To Them Webkinz Now Has A New Competitor. Please Bear With Me And Buy Webkinz Because Webkinz Is The Site We Have Come To Know And Love. So Please Don't Be A "shining Star," Be A Proud Owner Of Webkinz!!!



SINCERLY,
ANGRY AT "SHINING STARS"

I really want to say I would buy them, but right now I get them for $15 CAD for a webkinz and $12 CAD for a lil kinz. So the price would not be much higher for me to order them through WI. And if it was just under a dollar extra per pet, I would love to support the site in any way possible. BUT- shipping from the US to Canada, in even a small package, may bring the cost up more than an extra few bucks.
I am sorry and I do hope to come up with an alternate solution for Canadian collectors if the cost does end up being just too much.
What about ordering the trading cards as well? The shipping may be cheaper for smaller packages... A couple packs of cards in the mail may only be an extra stamp or two!???

I wouldn't buy any. I'd buy them somewhere else.

Would definitely buy all future WebKinz from WI -- shipping - shmipping! Shipping is nominal especially if it might be the difference between keeping WI free for all or not. It is DEFINITELY worth it. You guys do so much for all users and ask for so little (nothing) in return, the least you could expect would be that users would purchase some WebKinz through this amazing forum!

When the members just send in a donation, they give the members more storage space on the photo area of the forum and also put a little siggie such as "I donated" under their username so everyone knows they are helping to support.

Just some ideas from what I have seen on other sites that I belong to.

To add to my post....

I voted 'would buy some'. Depending on the price and the rarity of the Webkinz that I want, would determine if I purchased one from WI's retailer. Shipping would have to be reasonable.

I am a bargin hunter and locally I can purchase a full size Webkinz for $11.99 at a teachers supply store. So that is the price of your Lil' Kinz.

I agree with others that you need to find a more competitive supplier.

If it would keep from having to pay a membership fee, I'd buy a few Webkinz here. The donation idea also sounds good, especially if you got something that other people could see in your profile that showed you had donated. If WI went to membership fees, I'd have to leave though.

Hi I am headed to the poll but wanted to express that locally here, our lil kinz are $9 and regular webkinz are $12 and that is also no shipping charges, so PERSONALLY with 3 kids to buy for...I would not be able to play that much additional per webkinz ($3 per each webkinz plus shipping, times 3 kids...). But I will rack my brain for you to try to come up with something. I just wanted to express exactly where I stood, and the reasoning.

I am finding it hard to think of buying on-line paying the price plus shipping all in US founds when our local stores here have them now and all in lower prices all in CAN dollars without shipping. On the same note, I love webkinzinsider and I am truly thankful for the hard work you all are putting into this site. In many ways the chatting on here is so much more safe then on Webkinz and I totaly appreciate that and would feel more comfortable if my kids were older and could read LOL (mom with a webkinz addiction and her oldest is not even in school yet :0) with a husband that is not so understanding spending hard earned money on toys for his wife)

The only other way I can think of helping the cost for webkinzinsider is having a charge put on the amount of hits you get a day then depending on the results have a yearly charge to be a member, it is unfortunate but your site is well worth it and the amount of loyalty you guys have I really do not think you would lose that many accounts/friends KWIM

I hope my two cents help and I am not sounding to parent-ish.
