    Wii games = 50 coins
    Wii games = $50+
    Cards = 800 coins

    That's 16 Wii games worth of points, at $50+ a pop, your FREE gift (a pack of $15 cards) cost you $800+. And that's not even figuring in each $50+ game has a lot more + in it, not including tax.

    EDIT: And for the record, I think the hanafuda cards a great prize, just not for what they want for it. I'll wait until I can get a set on eBay and save my coins for the OSTs.

    I think the DS Game & Watch Collection looks nice - but only three games? Why not the whole Game & Watch library?!?

    Buying $50 Wii games just to get coins for the rewards isn't cost effective. I fully expect to see people offering PIN codes for sale/trade.

    Anyone up for a little Blockbuster dumpster diving?

    Games cost the same whether they have codes or not. So the codes are included free. 16 free Wii codes = free stuff

    You realize that to get the free code, you have to buy the not free game, right? You're blowing the money either way, regardless of what semantics you want to throw at me.

    Now that I think about it, Game & Watch Collection would be the best deal if it came with a code itself.

    Considering that the site isn't even functioning properly yet, and that it's in Beta I would assume that not only are more surveys on the way but more prizes as well. Way too soon to get antsy.

    It's an extra, you are supposed to buy a game because you want to play it

    I was able to log in and transfer my account with no problem at all. My only gripe is why dont you get coins for systems. I already registered my DS and Micro and didnt get any coins. Oh well.

    The website seems to be working fine right now. I was able to transfer all of my games after answering the same ridiculous survey 10+ times.

    Now do I blow my coins or wait for the good stuff? I can't even imagine how many coins it would take to get the Wii "SNES" controller.

    Made platinum status and I'm getting a G&W... nice! Saving the rest for later.

    My guess would be that the controller will be 800-1200.

    How the hell are you people getting in? I got in, registered one game, and now can't seem to log back in.

    According to Nintendo: games which are no longer shipping to retailers do not have any surveys and therefore are not eligible for coins.

    Thank goodness for them 'evergreen' titles. Otherwise, I wouldn't have gotten as much coins as I did.

    I'm wondering if I should wait to take all the surveys and take them after June or whenever to go for Platinum again. Is anybody else taking this strategy? The surveys say they don't expire until 2011-2013..

    You kinda implying that people are buying the game just for the code, when he says "free" he's implying that they're gonna buy the damn game anyway. Which is the real scenario, so the club nintendo stuff really is just like a free bonus.

    The site seems to log me in just fine, then booting me back out five minutes later. Still enough time for me to get most of my games registered. I would like to get the Game and Watch, but that SMB themed game card case looks MIGHTY tempting...
