For those of you who are not familiar with Club Nintendo, let me explain what it is. All of your first party titles on Wii, 3DS, and the DS all have a little pamphlet inside of them with a code on it. What you do is take this code, go on their website to become a member, and then input it into the site to redeem coins for special prizes, such as free games, posters, and so on. Earn enough points to maintain Gold or Platinum status within a given time period(July 1st to June 30th), and a special reward will be given to you for free. Nintendo has revealed today just what those new rewards are for this year.
Gold status members, who have accumulated 300 points or more, will receive a 2012 desk calendar featuring specific characters from popular games. For those of you who have obtained Platinum status (600 points and up), you will receive a set of 25 collectable pins based on the Mario franchise, which can then be arraigned to form a picture of Mario, a Goomba, or a Mushroom. These items will be available to redeem until July 31st, and will be shipped out sometime before the end of December 2011. Even though I did claim my calendar already, I have to say that the offerings this time around were rather lame, why not give out a free game or something like that?
Oh well, guess we can’t always get what we want huh? Anyways, if you are a member, and think these rewards are interesting, then go ahead and order them as soon as possible. If you are not yet a part of Club Nintendo, what are you waiting for?, register here and do it today.
P.S.- Here is a picture to give you a better idea of what to expect, didn’t want to do it as the header of the post because it just looked off for some reason.
