Can't decide what to get still... will probably go with DK for WiiU since i've got all the other first party Mario-related games. Feels like a waste to get one of the 3DS gold games that I don't have yet.


I'm torn. I have about 4,500 points to redeem and a platinum reward to accept. I have all of the retail 3DS games as well. Only thing I really wanted was the Animal Crossing playing cards that disappeared a month ago. I plan to just buy all of the 3DS games I don't own just to have a large digital catalog.

with all those points, you could probably just select a bunch of the games and then sell the codes on eBay for the price of the cards on eBay.  I was holding out for the Smash #2 poster set, but I missed them :( 

 

Only got 1000 coins left or so, but debating about getting the "2015 coin case" (cuz it has a Zelda insert), or just some of the games I don't have yet.   If you're really tough up for using your points on something, just buy me the case and the Zelda pouch and it'll save me the headache of figuring out which I want more -- the games or the semi-useless swag. ;)

So evidently you have to register your club Nintendo account on the dsi to receive coins. I did not know this. When I completed the survey it showed 100 coins for each of the three I registered on my to do history. Came to find out today I never received said coins because I never linked my club Nintendo account.

Went through chat. First guy couldn't help. Got transferred up a tier. Second guy couldn't help and gave me the generic customer service number. Called that. It took a bit for the guy to understand but he put through a request to the back office for my coins since you can no longer register.

Received an email from the back office about an hour later basically stating it was too late to register stuff. Um hello, the point is I never got credit for stuff I thought was already properly registered.

Call customer service again. Get a really stubborn guy but he explains the back office can't help because they literally can't add coins anymore. It's not physically possible.

I ask to speak to his supervisor after going round and round about being denied my rightful rewards. I get transfered and play the whole you had to register club Nintendo on the system game again. Which is of course impossible now. We go round and round some more including why am I just contacting them now (I saw this reminder yesterday.) I explain why, including my lack of interest in checking my account until I saw the reminder. Again with the we can't assign coins or register systems.

Finally after pointing out that I am not only being screwed out of a retail 3ds game but also several smaller eshop games (This would have given me platinum and 415 coins to spend before June on rewards) He places me on a hold. About 4-5 minutes later he comes back and offers me any retail or eshop game by Nintendo since I can't get the coins and thus platinum status. Majora's Mask is now on it's way here and I should have it within a week. Quite a long time with customer service but definitely worth it I think.




tldr; Nintendo screwed up my coins and in doing so denied me 300 and thus platinum status plus with the total coins I would have had two small eshop games. After way too long with customer service and continuously having to contact them, I have a retail copy of Majora's Mask on the way.

That's a friggin worthy platinum reward.

Good job failing to follow the very clear program rules then complaining until you got something!

Thank you! I missed out on platinum for waiting last minute. I got Mario Kart for my gold this time....

 

Now not sure to either get nes remix or earthbound with my 360 points

I fail to see how this is Nintendo's screw-up.. but well done for being tenacious.

Nowhere in the paperwork did it say anything about having to link the device with my account. It said register at Club Nintendo. I did. No where when completing the survey did it say to link the account to the device to receive coins. I did the surveys in January, the last time I used the site; well before the cut off. It showed in the to do the coins were given for the surveys but they didn't show in my account yet. Under help it says that you should wait, they may take a couple days to show up. I thought ok. Forgot all about it until I saw this reminder.

So basically tell me at what point I am to know completing the survey is not enough? It doesn't say that anywhere along the way. The paperwork says to register it at Club Nintendo which I do. It shows I am to be given coins. Why would I think I haven't done everything I am supposed to. Yeah, I forgot about it, but as far as I can tell the verbiage of the cut-off mentions the last day to register not contact customer service regarding missing coins. I don't really recall I read it in one of the threads on here, saw June, and promptly put its off. In fact other than saying it was impossible to do now that was the one complaint they didn't have; my contacting them about missing coins. They stated a lot of other information was listed and what not but never said I'm sorry there was a cut-off to contact us regarding this.

Basically other than the forgetting on my part and thus causing difficulties with getting the coins, which yeah I don't check Club Nintendo frequently, I admit, I fail to see how I am in the wrong. Yeah, if it was clearly splashed in an obvious spot when you go to where the club Nintendo insert tells you to go that you must link system to receive coins, I wouldn't feel like I was owed anything. But no where did it say that along the way and it showed I was to receive the coins in my history. Checking help says they should be credited within a few days. No where under missing coins does it say you need to first need to link your device with your club Nintendo account. So yeah I argued. I didn't argue for the game specifically. I just wanted what I felt I was rightfully owed. I even pointed out that particular game was not part of the rewards and suggested I be limited to the platinum rewards as options. In the end the supervisor must have agreed with me that missing out on platinum and the other games was unfair. He offered any game as a solution. I didn't suggest it.

I ordered the Mario tshirt for 700 coins and they sent me 2. Was that a mistake? Am I lucky? Or did everyone get 2 shirts?

Did you get the coins once you completed the steps you believed to have been required?  If not then you probably should have had the common sense to think  "maybe I didn't actually get those coins since everything else I got right away".  Or just not have left it for four to five months.  The last day for any coins has been on their site since 1/20/15 and is in no way ambiguous: "3/31/2015 Last day to earn Coins, register products with Club Nintendo, and sign up for new Club Nintendo membership"

 

Basically other than the forgetting on my part and thus causing difficulties with getting the coins, which yeah I don't check Club Nintendo frequently, I admit, I fail to see how I am in the wrong.

 

Clearly.

You can input your code here and then just complete the download when you are playing your console/device.

https://id.nintendo....icate=if-needed

If you register through this link is the game permanently in your download queue?  It could be several months before I register my WiiU, I just want to make sure I don't waste the game code if I can't get around to downloading it for a few months.

Thanks for this.  I bit on Pushmo as my gift.  I know Crashmo for free is technically the bigger deal, but the reviews indicate it's slightly worse as well.

I'm between PS4s right now. If I "buy" P.T. using my computer and register it to my PSN account, would I be safe to download P.T. to a PS4 at a later date?
