Just an FYI for those that don't already know, if you need some coins for the monthly prizes, go stop by your local Gamestop for copies of Wii Fit (the first one, game only), currently it's a part of the 50% sale for $0.49. Even for the replacement case alone this is a good price.
I've bought about two dozen of them here or there over the past 6 months, and I'd say over half of them had unused codes, just ask for it at the counter (the ones they keep back there are less likely to be code-pilfered). Each valid code is worth 100 coins, so you can create a few family members to register more than one copy, or trade it up for unique codes here on CAG.
Thank you so much for this post billy. I was driving around today and went to 3 gamestops to check out the 50% off games. I asked about the wii fit games and ended up buying 13 total. I told the employees what I was buying them for and I think some of them were just happy to be rid of all these copies taking up room.
So far I'm 2 for 2 with unused codes. I used to the 200 pts immediately to get Super Mario 64. It also put me over the edge and gave me Platinum for this year. So for .88 cents I sort of got a Super Mario 64 download voucher and a platinum reward.
For the past couple hours I sat down and played Mario 64 for the first time. I shows it's age, but I definitely understand why it is considered such a groundbreaking game for it's time. This would have blown my mind in 1996 when it was released.
Thanks again. I'm thinking for the other 11 copies, maybe should I create a new account? I've already reached platinum on one account. I should have at least enough on a 2nd new account to get gold because I have a shyteload of other games to redeem. This way I guess I could end up getting both platinum and gold rewards. Has anyone here done this before?
I noticed one of the Wii fit games had a Wii Fit Plus disc inside. I feel bad and will take it back, but the store is about 10 miles away. I'll put it in my car and give it back when I'm in the area. I see they sell it for $19.99 pre-owned (and MSRP for a new copy is $19.99
