[[File:Berry-star.png|thumb|200px|Berry Level!]]
   
:* Starting June 11th, American Girl started selling Truly Me dolls and accessories in Columbia, exclusively at [https://www.pepeganga.com/ Pepe Ganga] (Spanish site) for 499.99 Colombian Pesos (about $174). Thirteen stores are carrying the dolls, with six in the capital of Bogotá. Right now the only dolls abailable are [[Just Like You 16|#16]], [[Just Like You 24|#24]], [[Just Like You 25|#25]], [[Just Like You 39|#39]], [[Just Like You 52|#52]], [[Just Like You 55|#55]], and [[Just Like You 59|#59]] with select outfits.
+
: A new overhaul of the AG Rewards program launches today. The most prominent change is that each tier is reached by dollar amounts spent annually, not points accumulated per year.
   
:* Starting July 24th, American Girl will start selling [[Truly Me]] dolls and accessories in Brazil, exclusively at select [https://www.pbkids.com.br/ PB Kids Boutiques] (Portuguese site). The cost will be 700 reals (about $175 US).
+

+
: Until July 31st, the first purchase under the new rewards system will earn two times points on current levels.
   
; July 6, 2018 / The Ten Year Anniversary of the AG Wiki!
+
: More information is available on the article page, with full legal information available via reading the terms and conditions on [https://www.americangirl.com/wcsstore/AG/images/CustomerService/AGRewards/AGRewards_TC_20180109.pdf the AG Rewards website.]
 
: Today marks the tenth year of the American Girl Wiki. So much has happened since the wiki was founded with one person coding character pages and a hope that information about American Girl could be more than what was found on solo sites focused primarily on only the items to buy.
 
 
: We've seen the release of multiple Historical characters--Rebecca, Cecile and Marie Grace, Caroline, Maryellen, Melody, and Nanea. There's been retirements and later returns of some of the Historical Characters, and the termination of the Best Friends Line. There were major changes to Bitty Baby, and the eventual fading of the Bitty Twins. There's been multiple Girls of the Year, including our first ever Black and Hawaiian moderns, and second Latina character--as well as the Contemporary Line. There's been the revamp of the Historical line into BeForever. There's the release of the WellieWishers, one of the second lines to focus on the elementary kids. Create Your Own allows for customized dolls for the first time in the line's history--as well as the first ever official boy dolls. Multiple stores have opened across the nation, as well as stores outside of the US. A*G Rewards launched.
 
 
: And Truly Me's gone through about three names--and yes, since category changes are hard, we still call the category by a name several years out of date. Edits, whatcha gonna do.
 
 
: Good job, everyone who's ever contributed positively to the Wiki. I'm thankful for my admins, the people who add data on products and characters and books plots (and help during full product launches!) and to everyone who's ever even just fixed a problematic typo. And even if you just come across the Wiki in a search and are just glad to have more information (or how to identify your old childhood products), then please keep coming back! Let's keep it going as the years go on.

October 1, 2019 / The New Fall and Winter Release
A lot of new items have released for American Girl across almost every line, and several changes have been implemented for purchasing.
One of the biggest changes is that the prices of dolls have dropped across the board. All 18" dolls are now $98. Truly Me dolls now come with the book Friends: Making Them and Keeping Them.
Furthermore, the Historical Characters have shed the BeForever branding. The new books for the first six characters to be revamped--Kaya, Rebecca, Nanea, Maryellen, Melody, and Julie--have illustrations (returned for Rebecca and Kaya, updated for Julie, and new for Melody, Maryellen, and Nanea) but are now abridged. Please see each book's article for details on what had been added or removed. Also, all pets have been revamped and now have button eyes.

A new gift option is available: the customized gift experience. With this a doll is selected--using a quiz about the recipient that narrows down options, but any doll may be ultimately selected--and then a Starter set or Gift Trunk may be purchased of varying cost.
The Starter Set includes the following:
  • Choice of doll
  • One book related to doll
  • Choice of one play pack
  • Personalized letter to gift recipient with envelope
  • Optional free Ear Piercing
  • Added on Hearing Aids
  • $5.00 AG Rewards certificate for future order for Rewards members

The Gift Trunk includes the following:

  • Choice of doll
  • One book related to doll
  • Choice of two play packs
  • Personalized letter to gift recipient with envelope
  • Optional free Ear Piercing
  • Added on Hearing Aids
  • Premium storage container
  • First-year wellness visit through American Girl Hospital
  • $10.00 AG Rewards certificate for future order for Rewards members
Both options come with free shipping and handling. Non-members must sign up within three days of purchase to be eligible for the Rewards Certificate.

On to the new things.
For Historical Characters:
Nanea:
Maryellen:
Melody:
Julie:
Kaya:
Rebecca:
For Truly Me:
Smart Girl's Guide Kits (these come with the book, items and a choice of one of six modern-dressed mini dolls):

July 9th, 2019 / Changes to the AG Rewards program
Berry-star

Berry Level!

A new overhaul of the AG Rewards program launches today. The most prominent change is that each tier is reached by dollar amounts spent annually, not points accumulated per year.
Furthermore, each reward level will have its own unique annual reward certificate gift. Berry level members also will not have points expire as long as the level is maintained.
Until July 31st, the first purchase under the new rewards system will earn two times points on current levels.
More information is available on the article page, with full legal information available via reading the terms and conditions on the AG Rewards website.
