Get Your Club Nintendo Coins Quick


This is something of a PSA for any of you guys that are using Club Nintendo. The cutoff for 2011 status is on June 30, and that’s approaching quickly. If you’ve earned at least 600 coins from July 1, 2010 to June 30, 2011, you’ll get platinum status, and also be eligible for Nintendo’s annual free gift. Last year’s was a bitchin’ desk calendar, which for some reason has FlingSmash as its June game.

I found this handy image at Club Nintendo that tells you exactly how many coins you’ll get for registering any particular product and taking the following survey:


I’m right on the edge myself; I have about 200 coins to go. I’ve been grinding out some surveys and stuff left in my queue, but I’m making a last-ditch shopping run on Amazon to pick up some more games I’d always meant to play so I can squeak in to platinum right at the finish line. If you’re in the same boat as me, here are some cheapies that should include Club Nintendo codes, as they’ve been published by Nintendo. Just make sure to buy them new. Also, prices fluctuate on Amazon, so be warned that the price may be different than when I wrote this:


Metroid Prime: Other M$19.99

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess$19.99

Super Mario Sluggers –$18.94

Sin & Punishment: Star Successor –$15.98

Animal Crossing: City Folk — $16.96


Elite Beat Agents — $9.99

Professor Layton and the Curious Village$19.37

Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box — $19.99

Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies –$18.50

Glory of Heracles — $13.05

Golden Sun: Dark Dawn –$19.99

Brain Age 2 — $19.03

Rhythm Heaven –$13.58

Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time –$19.92

Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Darkness –$17.99

The Legendary Starfy –$14.25

Flash Focus –$15.49

Advance Wars: Days of Ruin — $21.89

America’s Test Kitchen –$5.87

WarioWare: DIY –$14.79

Clubhouse Games –$17.98

I ended up grabbing Metroid: Other M, Sin & Punishment: Star Successor, and Golden Sun. Those are all awesome games that I always meant to play, and I was surprised to see that they’d actually dropped in price. If my calculations are correct, those games combined with The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D should push me over the edge.
