    That's what I figured. Thanks for saving me a phone call.

    I said screw it. I ordered a Game & Watch anyways.

    I don't have a gamerscore but now, I have a different variety of ePenis... Platinum member status. I wonder what the freebie is going to be this year?

This is obviously a sour subject to many Nintendo fans and as a Nintendo fan I reflect that. I just see it as poor customer service and I choose not to support a company that doesn't strive for that satisfaction (especially when they are VERY financially capable to do so). I have to be honest, the ONLY thing that sparks my interest with the points is the Game & Watch DS game (which I would have enough coins for with DS & Wii games alone) so this has nothing to do with me "wanting free stuff". The issue with me is that Nintendo has become (if not already) a low price commodity in the gaming market. Everything from product quality control, customer service, factory productivity is going downhill from here and I don't want to support a company that does not see their customer as #1 priority (be it me or ANY other Nintendo fan......even those who are trash talking me).
    Go use Club Sony then.

    I will probably regret this later, but I ordered the Wii remote holder for 300 points. I do not see me reaching 800 points anytime in the next year, so I blew all my coins on this purchase. Lets see how long it takes to get shipped. I did receive an email confirming the order already.

Well, let me tell you this has been the downfall of many companies in the past and the EXACT same monster is starting to show it's ugly head with this "small" administrative decision.

    Between the Wii and the DS, they've sold 133 million systems this gen, and if anything, sales are speeding up...who is this alleged "increasingly growing disgruntled fan base" you keep mentioning?

    And while I'm at it...if you want GBA games, then I want all my NES and original Game Boy games to count, oh, and I have a card deck then made 50 years ago too!! I WANNA REGISTER THAT TOO, cheapskates! They have to draw a line somewhere... systems that are still alive kinda makes sense.

    What are you even talking about? Because Nintendo is doing well as a company they should give you free shit? That makes no sense, specially with the world's economies as they are. Why do you feel so entitled?

    This is a voluntary program that gives you free stuff for games you probably already own. If you don't like it, don't participate.

    You know, after reading your posts I feel entitled to something free. From now on I will collect one coin for every one of your posts. Unfortunately for me this does not include posts prior to May 1, 2008. When I collect enough coins I will redeem them for some free stuff. The stuff you have sucks, so I'll be forced to save my coins hoping for something better in the future. This program sucks.

    So it tells me that my My Nintendo account was transfered over to Club Nintendo, but then when i go to log in, i get this every time:

    "Welcome to Club Nintendo. Transferring your My Nintendo account to Club Nintendo is easy, but we may need some additional information to complete the process. Please click "Join Club Nintendo Now" to continue. NOTE: Make sure to provide the email address associated to your My Nintendo account to successfully transfer your account."

    This sucks because i had around 300 games registered, including Virtual Console games.

    Did you even read all of my posts? I said that I can see why they would not honor any of their systems before Gamecube and Gameboy Advance. That would not be reasonable for Nintendo to do that and that would not be practical. Honoring the Gameboy Advance and Gamecube would be very reasonable. Listen, I don't understand why all of the people thrashing me do not understand that this has NOTHING to do with getting free stuff. It has EVERYTHING to do with how Nintendo is becoming a company STRICTLY run by the bottom line while kicking customer satisfaction to the curb. Nintendo absolutely will not and can not survive if they keep on this path. How long will it take the new Nintendo fans to turn away because of these BS policies? When Nintendo alienates these new "non-gamer" fans then who else can they turn to? I know that the fans in the "hardcore" gamer group are already leaving them in droves. Many purists that hate DLC and refuse to pay $5 for a SMB game are leaving. You have people leaving because a they can't play a Japanese game because it's locked out by territory. People are leaving because they can't even get their hand on a Wii because of a 2+ year factory "shortage". These are REAL sticking points for gamers that can't be ignored. Thrash me all you want but this is happening NOW and there is no way to deny it.

    let me get this straight. Nintendo brings a program to the US that gives away free stuff for buying their games and they are kicking customer satisfaction to the curb? Do you think your posts through before you press submit?

    Ok here is what happened to me, somehow I had two accounts one for My Nintendo and one for the store. Both had the same email address. After speaking with a customer service, they told me that they had a memo that stopped the emailing of password resets and My Nintendo to Club Nintendo account transfer activation email. After they eliminated one of my emails, my password reset request was immediate. Then I filled out my name, age and email to transfer my account. Club Nintendo's site script showed that my account is transfered yadda yadda. I get an email with a link to activate the account. Hopefully this helps with people with Club Nintendo activation/transfer problems.

    Well, it went well for me at least. I migrated the ol' My Nintendo account through their automated setup to the new Club Nintendo system, and it picked up any of my old games that were eligible for surveys (and coins). There were only about 5 of 'em.

    Then I went to my Nintendo shelf in the game room and pulled all the registration codes I'd been saving up since they first hinted that Club Nintendo might be coming to the USA. I guess it's been a while, because I had a good sized stack of Wii and DS papers.

    A couple hours and many surveys later, I've got 1,220 coins and a nice shiny Platinum icon next to my name. Now I'm just waiting for something other than the Game & Watch Collection to catch my eye.

    I registered all my stuff earlier tonight...I am sitting on 730 points right now. I love that they finally offered this here in the US though I do wish that system would give you some points, and that any game you register would at least give you like 10 points just for the trouble of doing it. I understand the survey part of it being worth more, but why not give you something for logging in and typing out the codes? Big thumbs up to finally have this since Japan has had it for years.

    I think you are missing the real point of this program, which is to gather data from the surveys regarding advertising methods.

    What possible value can obtaining advertising data from two platforms declared dead 2-3 years ago give Nintendo? The data is obviously outdated, and the incredibly vast majority of what people enter would be hazy as memory blurs over time - making it useless.

    Adding older games to their system adds absolutely no value to the company or the consumer, even if you think it does.

    They expire? Fuck that then. I don't buy enough Nintendo stuff to ever make this worth the effort. Considering a simple game case costs 300 coins, how many games a year do they think people buy?

    I think their logic was more along the lines of 600points Platinum Status = 12 Wii games = 1 per month


    The points expire, but every 2 years. Just your status is reset every year.

    Gold or Platinum status is based on the number of Coins earned in a Club Nintendo year. Each Club Nintendo year begins on July 1 and ends on June 30. If you earn 300 Coins during a Club Nintendo year you will reach Gold status. Earn 600 Coins during a Club Nintendo year and reach Platinum status!

    Club Nintendo members that reach Gold or Platinum status by the end of the Club Nintendo year, will be sent a special reward. Special rewards will be announced shortly after June 30 and shipped later in the year.

    Your status will reset annually on June 30.

    Quote Originally Posted by Handy Dandy FAQ

    Unredeemed Coins will expire two (2) full Club Nintendo years (July 1 - June 30), plus whatever is left in the current Club Nintendo year, after they are earned. Example: Coins earned in March 2009 would not expire until June 30, 2011.
