Club Nintendo Platinum Gifts revealed, then removed
UPDATE: For some strange reason the gift were taken down, and the page is now empty, I'll update later if the gifts change.
Club Nintendo is a rewards program for all the Nintendo games you buy and register, and every year if you reach a Elite Status either Gold or Platinum you get to receive a gift for your loyalty.
Gold users get to choose between the usual Calendar, Super Mario Kart, Metroid 2, Mario vs DK: Minis March Again! or Zelda: Majora's Mask, and for those that reached Platinum you can pick a set of Platinum Mario Playing Cards or a Limited Edition Platinum Poster Set.
Remember that you have until July 31 to redeem the gift, so what do you g1s think of the rewards? Did any of you reached Platinum?
Don't remind me :c
I agree... Where's my Mario pillow??? Where's my Wii SNES controller??? This is the first time I've reached Platinum and I'm thoroughly disappointed. It's 'almost as if the U.S. isn't important to them. Same kind of thing with the Mario anniversary collections. U.S. got a bunch of crap content while everyone else got special stuff.
But you know, the more I start to think about it, the amount of people in the beginning of Club Nintendo compared to the amount of people today is considerably larger, so it kinda makes sense. But that's still no excuse to get lazy and give us cards or posters.
This is a fuckin joke! I mean, my god were they lazy. Four of them are virtual console games for pete's sake. The calender is here every year, so it's fine. But the Platinum Rewards are piss poor. First we get a rubber statue of the Mario characters. It's rubber and cheap, but the detail and the fact that it exists is what made me want to get it. Then we got the buttons. 25 buttons weren't as cool as the statue, but the presentation and boxing was what made it worth it, plus I love wearing the buttons. But a deck of cards, 3 posters, what? If I ever want to play cards, I'd use a regular deck of cards, and as for the posters, they are just pieces of paper with designs on them. Even the presentation value is lacking. Why do the japanese get an 8-bit pillow of Mario and we get a deck of cards or posters? What's next years? Keychains?
They are back up. Kid Icarus Poster FTW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I didn't reach platinum this year, but that's ok. It seems like the rewards this year aren't that impressive anyway.
The metallic silver/gold playing cards were very tempting, but I went with the posters. Even though I don't even have enough room for new posters (I still have the 3 skyward sword/25th anniversary posters rolled up in their cardboard tube...). If they're giving me options and one of the options involve zelda, yeah...I'm going for that. Also I really liked the Kid Icarus and Luigi's Mansion posters.
You are a horrible person.
I didn't have any of these choices... Also, look at this cool confirmation: Your Elite Status Reward will be distributed before the end of December, 2012.
I went with Metroid 2.
I reached Platinum, but these rewards are terrible. Not worth all the effort...
I reached platnim...this is a freaking joke! Didn't last year's platnum members get statues? and the year before that got 25 buttons?!! What the heck is this crap!
Platinum status is easy to reach provided you have a local GameStop and a cellphone within your vicinity.
Everyone. Wait. Don't choose just yet. The website is a little messed up from browser to browser. Make sure all issues are cast aside first and you see all prizes. (I ordered the posters BTW)
I feel your pain.They also dont have the Badass Zelda posters anymore
Yes!! I reached platinum status! been waiting for these to appear. Now which do I want? the posters or the playing cards? hmm...
You should be happy you get anything because here in Scandinavia we get nada. I think its kinda weird business practice by nintendo. I mean whats the problem, we have very well working postal system here as im sure you have in ireland to so why are we treated as good as the yanks?
WHEW, yeah, did the whole IE thing... DON'T USE GOOGLE CHROME ON THE WEBSITE!!!
Well, in Europe, we don't get any loyalty rewards like that. We just earn points and spend them on sub-par items, nothing compared to half the stuff you Americans get. Those Awesome Skyward Sword posters, which you can get? They are only screensavers for aa computer over here. In Ireland, they refuse to ship me things because of where I'm situated. And I live in the Capita!!!. So just remember that you Americans have it good. and the rest of us are given what you don't want.
Just so you know, they put the rewards back on the website
