In Topic: Club Nintendo Deals ~ New Games Up (11/17-12/14)

20 July 2014 - 02:28 PM

You know, I find it entertaining how short peoples memories can really be. I wonder how many people that are here complaining remember what Club Nintendo used to be before it was a rewards program. There was a time, circa the GBA, where registering your games and systems offered no rewards; I don't even remember if they offered an extended 90 days on registering hardware back then. 

I registered my things then, just like I register my things now. The only difference is, they reward me and I have an opportunity (if I chose to take it) to provide them with feedback. If I liked something, and would like more I can share that opinion. If something didn't mesh with me, I also have that ability; and this is the closest most of us getting to sharing our opinions with the makers of products we buy. 

In turn, they reward me for the time I take for registering with either physical goods (which had been decreasing but aren't totally non-existant) or digital items (that give me instant gratification and have bolstered my 3DS software significantly). Was I a bit disappointed that there were no unique physical goods this year? Surely.

However, I also know the reality that they've given out a lot of promotions lately. I also realize that some people really abuse the program, in an effort to get financial gains. We also have to face the facts that Nintendo hasn't been getting the results they have previous in turns of financial yield. So while I won't say I am completely content with whatever they give me, I am not so ungrateful to act like this is the worst thing ever.

Nintendo is one of the best companies out there, whether it be software/customer service/quality of products/loyalty rewards. In truth, we should remember that they don't have to have Club Nintendo at all; loyalists like myself wouldn't stop buying software just because of some slip in the package. If you buy Nintendo software/hardware for any sort of gain, then you should re-evaluate your purchases.

Remember kids, Nintendo means "Leave luck to heaven" and if you're gambling on Club Nintendo rewards then you're asking to roll snake eyes; take it for what it is, and stop putting so much stock into it.
