Chipettes Movie Advertisements
From Webkinz Insider Wiki
In March 2010, a series of third-party advertisements started running on the Webkinz Newz site to promote the Alvin and the Chipmunks Squeakquel Movie's release to DVD. The DVD debuted in stores on Tuesday, March 30th, 2010.
Back in December 2007, a similar promotion ran for the original Chipmunk Movie in Webkinz World. For more information on that promotion, please see the Alvin & the Chipmunks Movie Advertisements page.

Despite what the advertisement says, the rules were never posted on the Webkinz Newz contest page. The only way to view them was to find an advertisement and get a contest entry form.
Webkinz Newz Advertisements
Starting on March 25th, 2010, advertisements for the movie started running on the Webkinz Newz. Players clicking on an advertisement were treated to a little show of the Chipettes singing and dancing inside of the advertisement frame.
On April 2nd Canadian players started spotting new advertisements on the Webkinz Newz site. Players clicking on an advertisement were shown a contest entry form where they had to enter their email address and answer a "skill testing question" (solve a math problem). Players correctly filling out the form received feature codes for one of three Chipette costumes: Pink Popstar Uniform (Brittany), Jean Jacket Uniform (Jeanette), or Green Popstar Uniform (Eleanore).
It was quickly realized that only Canadians were able to see the advertisements. Upon further review, it was discovered that the contest rules state that the contest is only open to Canadian residents. This was a terrible shock to the Americans and residents of other countries who had been able to participate in all previous Webkinz Newz contests.
These three costumes are now avaliable at the Kinztyle outlet as rare clothing items.
