Well it was great while it lasted.
After more than six years of delivering fun Nintendo-themed rewards to its members, Club Nintendo is preparing to shut down. Club Nintendo members in the United States and Canada can earn additional Coins through the end of March, and can redeem those Coins through the end of June. So if you have any outstanding surveys to fill out, you should take the opportunity to do so now and not miss out.
Nintendo of America will be announcing a new customer loyalty program at a later date.
“We thank all Club Nintendo members for their dedication to Nintendo games and their ongoing love for our systems and characters,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “We want to make this time of transition as easy as possible for our loyal Club Nintendo members, so we are going to add dozens of new rewards and downloadable games to help members clear out their Coin balances.”
Nintendo will add dozens of downloadable games and a limited quantity of exclusive reward items to the rewards catalog in February.
Virtual Console games currently available to download (until June 30th) include:
- Super Mario Bros 2 (Wii U) – 200 coins
- Excitebike (Wii U) 200 coins
- Super Metroid (Wii) – 250 coins
- Super Punch-Out!! (Wii) – 250 coins
- Super Mario Land Super Mario Land (3DS) – 150 coins
- Donkey Kong Donkey Kong (3DS) – 150 coins
- Wario Land 2 Wario Land 2 (3DS) – 200 coins

As a gift to Club Nintendo members, the Flipnote Studio 3D software will be available to download for free in February. This software will allow users to create unique three-dimensional animations and to exchange their creations via local wireless with others who also own Flipnote Studio 3D. The program will be available to Club Nintendo members until June 30th.
