I'm hoping the "New Program" is just as good or better than Club Nintendo.  And not just some kind of boiler plate legal speak that will completely disappoint come July......

 

Well, you just made a self fulfilling prophecy.

Just got on the CN train at Christmas time with the Wii U so I guess I better make this one count! I'm sitting at 320 coins now, anyone mind sharing any tips on getting a bunch of coins cheaply (via GS or any other avenues?) I'm also looking for a SSB 3DS code (I don't have a 3DS) to at least get Mewtwo, I'm willing to pay a bit if someone has one they don't need.

Theres people on eBay who sell codes 20 bucks got me 8 codes so I could go platinum

I posted this in the other thread but since this one has that new car smell...

Well it was fun while it lasted for me. I am only 70 coins shy of the required 600 for platinum for this year. I noticed a lot of people have codes they have yet to redeem. Does someone perhaps have 1 or 2 codes they could pass my way to ensure I reach the goal? Thanks!

I've got lots of Crush 3D codes and a Wii Fit code I'll never use.  Yours if you want it.

Well, I know what I'm going to be doing tonight when I get home. Just really getting back into video games this past year or so (cuz I can finally afford to do so) and all the good programs seem to be ending. Ah well, I completely missed the GameCube and Wii generation so getting some download codes may be the way to go for me anyway.

I'm not surprised the current incarnation of a rewards program is being retired, it can be so easily abused with people selling each other their codes...

This, plus people (like me) sitting on codes to maintain Platinum year after year, and still going triple Platinum. If anything Club Nintendo v 2 is just a way for Nintendo to be rid of all those years of codes once and for all and start fresh, perhaps having new codes expire even faster.

Wii Fit.  Only a buck or so, and its around 100 points, I think....

I posted about that last thread. I managed to find one that was mispriced, or maybe because the store had a lot of it it was marked down, but all the other ones I saw were about 4-5 dollars. Still really good, but just remember that someone may have poached those codes over the years.

Lots of negativity regarding Nintendo and unsure if the media covered them or editorials that Nintendo doesn't listen to their customers.

 

  • Discontinuing Club Nintendo [I know a new one will replace it as I hated doing those long generic surveys to get coins]
  • Not extending the Digital Deluxe Promotion program for Wii U
  • Not changing their DRM [console-bind not account-bind] when buying digital at their eShop
  • Not releasing the "new" regular 3DS to the US since they feel customers prefer the XL version
  • Mother 3

 

Unlike Microsoft who pulled a 180 after that abysmal XBox One presentation at E3 2013, Nintendo is brushing their shoulders off and tell the fans and media to:

As I was submitting post play surveys for games that came out in 2006, I'm sure that's part of it.

Question: does using a Club Nintendo code devalue a used game on the secondary market considering they won't be useful after the program ends anyway?

In the end I have 470 coins. Better get those physical rewards because those will probably go fast.

I have a strange mixture of sadness that the program is ending just as I'm finally able to take advantage of it, and a little bit of satisfaction that it's not just ending in NA because my first thought when I saw the announcement page was, "Why does Nintendo hate us...".

WTF Nintendo?
Now I gotta go register a bunch of things. At least my coins may not be completely going to waste I guess.

Don't worry, it will prove out that Nintendo hates us.  Next month Nintendo will throw up all this amazing stuff for people to get in EU and JP and we'll get... cleaning cloths and NES games no one wants.

Dear God, I remember when I got my 3DS XL M&L edition back in December 2013 (lol, I opened it loooong before Christmas). I was just registering the thing just to get extra time on the warranty...then I saw the site that said you could get coins for your games. What's this? I can register my old Professor Layton games for coins? Then later in January I found a Wii that was never registered at a Goodwill along with a bunch of Wii games at GS that weren't registered. Yep, it will be missed.

Or a Nintendo branded screwdriver to help little kids change SD cards on their New 3DS XLs.

Tagging thread for now, sad to see CN go, but hopes of something unique with the next loyalty program.

I've ordered two of those 18-cart game cases and I've been mulling over on a third.  Now I'm scared so I better go for it!!!

Pretty bummed they are closing up CN. I've always had fun sneaking pics of Nintendo slips at the local gamestop with my iPhone

 

*Le sigh*

 

Currently sitting at 1570 coins right now, not sure which games to spend them on right now

 

55 coins away from reaching platinum for the year if anyone wants to throw a code my way  :pray:

Will they still give coins for eShop purchases of games released before 1/20?  Still need another 25 to get to Plat.

 

...Or can I pick up a couple of the CN titles and have post play surveys that add up to 25?
