How would buying a used one be eligible? Don't you need a proof of purchase?


It'll be registered if the used unit logged onto the e-shop before the deadline.

So...I wonder it may be worth emailing Nintendo. I bought a 3DS a while back and played it for a bit and then I returned it. Now, it WAS broken so it was a justified return, but in reality I was also needed the money towards some photography equipment. I wonder what they'd say if I sent the serial number to my first system (still have it in an email...long story), got a second system and explained the situation to them...stressing how I returned it because it was broken.

How much time is between the purchase/return of the first system and the purchase of the second? Also, is it like it sounds and you haven't yet bought a second?

Either way, if it's only been a couple of weeks I'd think they may try to help you out, especially if they think you might not have been able to immediately replace it for some reason. But if you've been without a 3DS for several months I'd bet they'd give you a flat out no.

So just to update my little complaint I had 3 days ago, I finally got an email response from Nintendo. They registered the Pokedex 3D and Nintendo Video to my Club Nintendo account and their Registration surveys were now available to take. I now have 490 coins and am waiting to do some Post Play surveys starting from 4 to 7 days from now.

The really nice thing about it, too, is that even though I forgot to give my account information in my email request (because it was so late and I had been awake for so long that I couldn't really think about much of anything) the representative was extraordinarily helpful and simply matched my email address to my account to register the items.

So now in the end the only complaints I have are that there was no warning that I'd have to take a few extra steps to get those coins if I waited more than 7 days to link my system and that Nintendo doesn't send out "We have received your email" response emails so I worried for the last 3 days that they might not have even received my email.




So I guess I'll just add a reminder here for you all:

If you want Club Nintendo coins for your Ambassador games, make a Club Nintendo account if you haven't made one yet and link your 3DS system's eShop to it before you download the games on September 1st.

Yep. I am at about 440 with 3-4 post play surveys left. Bought a few DS games on sale last week.

Also, Nintendo announced that there will be coins for the Ambassador games. Should hit platinum this year. I just hope this year's gifts are not crap like last years.

Nintendo's FAQ said 600. 300 gets you gold.

I registered my 3DS a few days ago but never got the survey for the coins. Who do I e-mail to get the survey normally I wouldn't complain but 160 coins is 160 coins and I'm close to platinum status.

The first ten are available...log on to the store, and scroll to the far lefthand side where it says setting/other (I think that's what it says) and then go to downloads. It will have all of the games you've already paid and dowloaded, and then mixed in there are the ten NES games which include Metroid, Super Mario Bros and Zelda I and II...they haven't released any of the GBA games yet.

I like how you can queue the 10 games to download, rather than having to manually download one at a time and sit there looking bored.

Oh wait... :|
