Updated the OP with links.

Yes, those coins should expire next year at some point. But it's a game-by-game basis, and right now only Super Mario 64 DS has expired.


Crud, I guess that means I lost those coins (unless I never registered it since maybe the program wasn't available yet).

I'm not seeing any warning on the Club site about when my coins expire.

Looking at the stuff, I'll probably never actually get any posters put up though the Zelda ones and one of the Mario ones are pretty cool.

I don't know, maybe a set of folders and bookmarks. I could conceivably use those I guess. Though I hate that they'd wear out in normal use (I'd like something more permanent with my coins darn it :D )

I realized that a bunch of my coins expire by December so I picked up the white game case. It seems pretty useful for travel compared to the large holder I have with all of my DS and GBA games.

How did you know your coins were expiring? I guess I'm missing where it says that.

According to the FAQ, the earliest coins can expire is June 30, 2011, and that's for games you registered during the 08-09 year. We don't know yet how Nintendo will notify you when coins will expire, but if the FAQ is to be believed I'll have to spend at least 300 or so before this current year ends.

I registered a few games today. I never really registered any of my games. I have a lot to do, it will take awhile. Is there any reason to not register all my games at once or should I just put them all in?

Personally, I'd register my games until I hit the 600 (platinum) mark and save the rest for next year. However, if you don't want to forget I believe you can "register" the game and not complete any of the surveys to save points until you actually want to redeem them.

Of course, the only exception would be if a game is about to expire, which I believe is general 5 years from release?

Once you hit 600 can you redeem the points and still stay at Platinum level?

You can add Metroid Prime Hunters (DS) to the too-old-for-points category.

Yes. Coins spent and platinum level are two different things. Once you reach the gold/platinum level for a year it doesn't matter, it's just simply an account of coins you earned in that current year.

Not sure that it really matters but anyone looking to get Battalion Wars 2 for the Wii might want to know that I just picked it up at KMart and went to register it and Club Nintendo said it wasn't eligible for coins.

Weird, because Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn still is (tried it too), and neither one is a CN PIN, they're both just Nintendo Product Reg PINs.

There is a list of qualifying titles on the Club Nintendo site

I just went ahead and removed the Expired Games list. If something expires, I'll just remove it from the Old Games that can be registered list.

Those are really nice. The Animal Crossing one is my favorite.

I won't get any though. They'd just sit somewhere.

Yeah same here. It would've been cool if they were the type to hang on the wall, you know the bigger ones, but it looks like they're regular sized.

Yeah, BWii didn't expire, per-say. It was never eligible for coins.
It was released before Club Nintendo started and wasn't on the list of eligible Wii titles. Fire Emblem, however, is.

Like I said though, Fire Emblem wasn't a CN PIN either.

BW2 was released October 07, Fire Emblem in November.

I'm not mad. Actually, BW2 looks pretty fun (and CN PINs are never the sole reason I buy a game anyway). I just thought it was weird. I even have that listed saved on my laptop with the games I own already removed, and I guess just thought BW2 was on it.

Oh well. It was only $20, and it's not like I can't milk a game, even one that sucks, for that much.

The blooper design is very clean and simple, you can put it practically anywhere and it will look good.

Mario design is more cluttered and the colour (thats right, colour with a U) is not nearly as subdued, if its just for collecting and you'll never use it go with Mario. I plan to display the blooper one.

It is for collecting. I am leaning towards the Mario one... but the blooper one is awesome too.

Technically you could always get both :) if I end up with a bunch of spare coins I'll probably grab the other one too

Yeah, several pre-Club Nintendo titles were eligible for coins even though they only had MyNintendo coins. In fact, I still occasionally pick up an older MyNintendo game and get the coins for it. Metroid Prime 3 (Released Aug 07) is one I can think of off the top of my head.

I think the cut-off was, mostly, DS and Wii Games that were still being published at the time Club Nintendo started. There are a few odd exceptions (Tetris DS and Electroplankton being the two that stood out the most to me), but over all, that seems to fit what determined products worthy of Club Nintendo coins.
