    Momskinz I noticed on your trade list page that you will trade for pet codes?
    I have many of the items you are looking for (a lot of PSI) & was wondering what pet codes you have & how many & what items you will trade for a pet code? Hope to hear back soon. :D

    Sorry for the rant the other day
    Moms feel free to delete it. Although it’s what I felt. I shouldn’t have blurted it out here the way I did. I do feel that ABC should’ve at least let people know what it was about instead of sneaking it in that way. I don’t watch hardly any ‘regular’ TV. So it would’ve just been another show I don’t watch.

    I guess I’ve been feeling really lonely too. Struggling to find a church home here.

    I have the oriole & robin, let me check for some of the others

    we used to trade one pet code for like 4 psis, but if they are ones on my wish list, I would probably do two psis for one pet if you think that is fair …

    June 16, 2013 @ 3:26 pm

    I also have white swan, toco toucan …

  75. 75 shellybrayley said,

    June 16, 2013 @ 3:52 pm

    I think that is great! :D
    I will have to send the PSIs from different WW accounts as I can only send 3 at a time, Here are other IDs I have and Family IDs that I use also : meandmykeebler, lilrosso1990, dawnelle2001, luvallsoulz and of course shellybrayley
    The 1st 3 I send will be from shellybrayley they are : SeaSpray Sub, Bright Light Sea lamp & Turrent Tower Window. they are from your list & I will send more from other IDs after I send friend requests. Is that OK for a start? :)

    Hey everyone!

    I have an important question. I just got an email telling me that my deluxe membership is going to auto renew in 14 days on July 29th. First of all, it’s only June, but if that was just a typo, I do NOT want my deluxe membership to renew but when I logged onto my Ganz account I absolutely could not find a place to switch that off (even though I’m fairly certain I did just that right after getting my deluxe account last year). Can anyone help? I’m currently in Italy so I really cannot call into the customer service office because of fees and time changes and such. Thanks!

  80. 80 gramma said,

    June 16, 2013 @ 6:21 pm

    KK, I ‘think’ you have to log on the estore and go to ‘manage my account’. somewhere in there is a place to check off automatic renewal.

  81. 81 shellybrayley said,

    June 16, 2013 @ 6:25 pm

    79kkamll
    Log into your e-store account & then go to manage account, then click on order history & look for an order that was in the month and year that you bought your membership it will say membership under type of order, click on order details and you should see a place that says To Cancel Automatic Renewal Please Click Here & then just click it & you will get an e-mail confirming the cancellation. Hope that helps. :D

  82. 82 gramma said,
