Reach for the Goldby Randy Marr
Members of the "Club Nintendo" service have until June 30, 2009 to claim as many coins as they can in order to reach Gold or Platinum service. Doing so will make them eligible for a special reward. To earn a Gold status you need 300 coins and to earn Platinum you need 600. Coins can be earned by registering your games and consoles on the Club Nintendo website, and additional coins can be earned by filling out little questionnaires about the games.
If you are eligible as of June 30 you can visit the Club Nintendo website to get more information on the special reward. Once they've been announced, time will be limited to claim them.
Has anybody spent their coins on anything nifty, or are you just hoarding them up? What do you hope the special gifts will be? I'm personally hoping for that Wario colored Gamecube controller the Japanese got, though I suppose the timing would be off. Still, that thing would be sweet for a Wario fanatic such as myself. Or the Super Famicon (obviously going to be Super Nintendo) controller for Virtual Console games.
