Club Nintendo Says Good-Bye With New January 2015 Games

Say Good-Bye –

Nintendo launched the Club Nintendo program over 6 years ago, offering game incentives in exchange for fan loyalty and survey responses. Kicking off the New Year, Nintendo has just announced this Club Nintendo program will be ending in the coming months. While it is sad to see this program go, Nintendo is providing one last opportunity to earn and more importantly, use, your Club Nintendo coins before they are deleted forever.

Click here to read the official details of this closing.

In summary, Club Nintendo members have until 3-31-15 to earn coins. This means this is the last day to enter Club Nintendo codes and register products. Then, 6-30-15 will be the last day to redeem these coins. All coins will be deleted after this June expiration date with no further chance to redeem. The good news is, Nintendo is planning a new rewards program but accounts will not transfer to this upcoming new program. Nintendo has not released any details about this new program yet.

Nintendo is also planning on releasing several new games and items to the Club Nintendo store in February as a way for members to spend those coins before they expire. Also, as a way of saying thank you, Nintendo will be giving away Flip Note Studio 3D to every Club Nintendo member at some point in the near future.

Nintendo is still planning on releasing Gold and Platinum special gifts like in previous years. These Elite Status gifts will be available between April 1 – April 30, 2015. Details on these gifts will probably surface in the beginning of April or late March.

At the time of this posting, Nintendo has removed the EARN COINS button from their top menu bar after logging in. This means members will probably not be able to earn extra coins for taking post-play surveys anyway. Also, since this news was just released, the Club Nintendo site is moving rather slow so users might need patience if trying to redeem their Coins over the next few days.

Luckily, there is a new batch of 8 games available, kicking off January 2015. They are all Virtual Console titles and many have been available before. Here is a breakdown.

    It’s a great thing Nintendo went out with a bang. Several games for the loyal customers to choose from. Definitely checking this out before my coins expire. Hopefully they’ll be able to create a customer loyalty service similar to this one again.

    Ehhh??? :((( I kind of feel sad from this news…

    But it’s Nintendo anyway 🙂 For sure, they’ll (or already have) come up with better ideas.
