What to buy with my Nintendo Coins

#1 Posted by MideonNViscera (2257 posts) -

I'm sitting on 955 of these things. I've got more coming when I redeem my niece's 3DS at Christmas, plus some from Paper Mario.

The free 3DS games always suck, and I actually bought the first couple they offered only to never play them. The Wii is in the kid's room so those games are out of the question.

I bought one of those 18 slot game card cases, and I actually like that a lot. I'd buy another if they were still available. I can only assume they took them away because they actually had to ship a ton of them to people.

Right now I can buy playing cards, shoelaces, terrycloth towels, and other useless crap. The only posters they even have available right now are Donkey Kong.

Anyone else have a ton of coins and no idea what to use them on, if anything, ever?

I bought a cloth case for mine that worked to clean the screens off as well and I use it constantly.

The reversible pouch? I do need something to safely clean my XL's screen.

Yeah, that cloth pouch is the only thing I've ordered from Club Nintendo that actually seemed worthwhile. It takes good care of my DSi (still have so many Professor Laytons + assorted RPGs to make my way through on the train).

I also ordered the Zelda posters a couple years before that, then when they came, I realized "Wait, I'm not 15 years old, I can't just hang these up in my room if I ever want to get laid." Yeah, yeah, I know, there are girls who are fine with gaming, but still, I'm in my 20s and have different decorating priorities than I used to.
