Nintendo seems to be getting in the holiday spirit this year. Not only do they have a great variety of games and hardware to choose from,  but someone on Reddit claims that Nintendo sent them the card above. If you’re too lazy to read the picture, the note thanks them for their loyalty and says they are rewarding some of their biggest Wii U fans with $40 pizza hut gift cards.

In between runs to the mailbox and back, I found it kind of ironic to know that Reggie used to hold a marketing position at Pizza Hut. It would seem the Regginator himself still remembers his roots. Perhaps this hints at some kind of new partnership with Pizza Hut?

Any way you look at it, this is an incredibly kind gesture on Nintendo’s part. It’s nice to know that Nintendo really does seem to care for its hardcore fans, and is willing to reward them with a Christmas present.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go check the mail again…

    Time to check my mail

  • X3Charlie

    I want! I wonder what the criteria is.

    • Sadly, no one has said…

    • DragonSilths

      Its like the lottery. Probably only like 1,000 people get one.

    • jjbredesen

      Most likley people with more than 10 000 points or something crazy.

  • Nate

    Does this mean they are finally mailing out Platinum and Gold Club Nintendo gifts? I’m really looking forward to the Majora’s Mask soundtrack.

    • DragonSilths

      I got my Luigi, Pikmin 3, and Windwaker Elite Rewards Posters a few days ago so yes they are.

  • Lil J Moore

    Where’s my free pizza

  • X3Charlie

    I wish registering games was automatic, I’m behind.

  • mjnathans

    This would be great. I hope it is based on Club Nintendo, I have been Platinum 5 years in a row. It would be nice to see all those surveys pay off. I also would love to have a pizza party with my friends and play some Mario 3D world. and Wii Party U during the Christmas vacation ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Hmm.. I seen that Nintendo sent an email to me about a week ago that pretty much said that ‘my package was being delivered’, I’m pretty sure this will be in that package! Proud to be one of those special Wii U/Nintendo fans! : )

    • Laud

      If you do get one and I don’t I’m going to find you and eat your giftcard.

    • Lil J Moore

      Wait did you get the Majora’s mask soundtrack for platinum members?

      • Ken Seymour

        I personally am still waiting for my platinum reward…

        • I am Error.

          Personally, I personally feel personally is a bit repetitive when sharing your own thoughts. That’s just my opinion, personally, to me.

          • Ken Seymour

            “Personally”, someone asked if someone got there platinum reward and I responded because I “personally” felt it was relevant, and your opinion is always personal just like your comment and I “personally” don’t have a problem with it because I’m not here to post pointless comments but I made an exception this time just for you and apologize to everyone else who had to read this ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Jon

      same thing happened to me, then 2 days ago in the mail, my Zelda link between worlds posters showed up….

  • cThreep

    This is pretty frigg’n rad.

  • BIG Franky

    awesome…. i’m platinum and haven’t gotten anything… ๐Ÿ™

  • Mithiragi

    Didn’t get it. :(. Anybody else experiencing snow today btw?

    • Jon

      Snow comes tonight and tomorrow for me

      • Mithiragi

        Snowed like a bitch today lol. The whole day man.

        • Jon

          well, it’s started here now, calling for 20-25 cm and then freezing rain in the later part of the afternoon tomorrow.

          • Mithiragi

            Where do you live? I’m from NJ.

          • Jon

            East Side>West Side

  • Mithiragi

    I wish I had the card. Gotta have that Pizza Hut stuffed crust pizza ya know? lol


      • Erik

        Now you are making me crave a pizza now ๐Ÿ™ Most importantly… I REALLY want stuffed crust pizza with ranch! I know that’s complete overkill but its really good!

        • ugh… that sounds so good`

          • Erik

            Can you really order your Stuffed Crust with triple the amount??? Please say yes! Eventually i will order it and pour ranch all over it! I dont care if i vomit after one slice, i just want the cheese!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

          • yeah it’s a new thing. Triple stuffed crust XD

          • Erik

            Since when they did that? I never heard it through commercials or even by mail.

          • They have a LOT of commercials about it…

        • Mithiragi

          I just ordered the Pepperoni Lover’s Pizza Hut stuffed crust pizza 2 days ago with blue cheese sauce and breadsticks on the side. Man oh manโ€ฆ It’s so bad, but it’s so good!

    • Denvy

      But WHY did they discontinue stuffed crust gold? It was soooooooo good!

      • Mithiragi

        I only got to order that once. ๐Ÿ™

        • Denvy

          Now that’s a shame ๐Ÿ™

  • Sdudyoy

    You would think that most people would want one of the awesome collectables from Nintendo, but really me and alot of people would be more grateful for this than alot of the stuff on Club Nintendo.

  • peeer

    I am gold at Club Nintendo, if they intend to send gift cards like that to all gold/platinum members its just too bad cause there are no pizza hut in my area… ๐Ÿ™

    • Jon

      I probably won’t get one and I was platinum the day it was reset. Same scenario as last year and the year before.

  • Kriskura

    Kind of weird news. Can other persons confirm they also received this or that other persons have…? Because… Well… It seems cool yeah but pretty weird and unbelievable somehow that they do a campaign of this kind, even more in sort of secrecy. It may easily be a fake or sort of a joke so… Anyone…?

    • DragonSilths

      Sony did it with Taco Bell before. Its real. Don’t forget Reggie has connections with Pizza Hut since he used to be part of it.

      • Kriskura

        Hmm… Okay I see, since I’m from Europa, I wasn’t aware about these campain and that Reggie used to be part of Pizza Hut.
        Seems more believable now, but still, I keep a doubt ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    • Yeah, I meant to mention to take it with a grain of salt in the article. Must’ve slipped my mind. From what I can tell, it doesnt seem fake though. Usually if something’s fake on Reddit, it’s pointed out fairily quickly. It’s also Reggie’s actual signature too, so I dunno. I’m choosing to believe ๐Ÿ˜›

      • Kriskura

        Okay, I see! ๐Ÿ™‚
        Just about the signature, I guess it’s not that difficult to find it on the net and eventually for someone to train on copying it. But seems a bit more legit to me now that I know that he used to be part of Pizza Hut. But I still keep a doubt, since I find it a bit suprising and it can eventually be a fake by someone who’s justly aware about all that ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    • megamanultra

      I had to call Nintendo last night to unlock a Wii unit, and while I was on the phone with the rep, I brought up this gift card. He was unable to find anything in their promotional info on their end to confirm they were doing such a promotion. Of course, he mentioned it might still be possible, but they have no actual promotion documents in their customer service section to confirm it.

    • Geek_Daddy

      I received one with 40$ on it. It is real.

  • Mr. Hobo

    Well I’ve registered every first party game on the Wii U so maybe I’ll get one. Hopefully that’s enough to meet their criteria.

  • Alexander Kleinwechter

    Now compare this what sony and microsoft does to their fans!

  • Jon

    oh boy! Now everyone else that has been with Nintendo for the last 25 years will get to wonder if Nintendo see them as a fan… or not as a fan.

    I really wish they would stop using these words and just call it a randomly selected bunch of people on Club Nintendo.

  • Madmagican

    I feel like Nintendo looked at the Club Nintendo accounts for the people with the most coins and just sent them the gift cards

  • Adrian

    By zorpix??? I better get this with my platinum poster set :p.

  • LoBo_UK

    Happy Holidays lol
    What ever happened to Happy Christmas

    • Kenshin0011

      Does it matter?

    • kevin nun—-

      merry christmas

  • snowtheory

    Lol I got mine Friday and got 3 pizzas bread sticks and some Dr.pepper

  • SafetyPotato

    wow didn’t know it was that rare to get these. I got one in the mail on saturday

    • Kirbyomega

      Foh reyulz?!

  • Kenshin0011

    Lol that’s hilarious

  • ZeldaFan83

    Okay I wanna know how they decide those fans. I’ve owned every system and most of their games since the NES and now own a ton of Wii U games and every system and game I’ve just about owned is registered on my club nintendo account. So I better freaking qualify and more important other gamers who dedicate their time and money to them.

  • Ducked

    Why did I wait so long to join Club Nintendo…

  • Jackie Lloyd

    People DO NOT eat pizza while playing Wii U!!! The glossy gamepad will get all greasy and gross with everyone eating pizza while touching the gamepad. EWWW!! Lol sorry I get easily freaked out by this kind of thing ๐Ÿ˜›

    • C.S. Bailey

      That’s why I’ll be eating the pizza while a game downloads. $40 (for free) for food is $40 I can spend on a game!

  • BGhp


  • alex toschi

    Anybody know when the cut off date for this is?

  • Justagamer

    I got one today..I was like damn..Nintendo you are awesome

    • Can you tell us about something you might have done that made you elligible? ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Justagamer

        Not sure they just sent me my posters from the nintendo club and it came with the card with the pizza hut card in it..not too shabby and i will use it for my bday on the 26th


          • Justagamer

            I hope so for you..As for the card use it!

          • Was it just packaged with them?

          • Justagamer

            It came with it but in a different package

          • hrm… odd

          • Justagamer

            My friend just got his down the street..

  • robzombiesanus

    Hmm, club nintendo platinum for 4 years in a row with over a hundred registered games and all I get is there crappy club nintendo rewards.

  • Jonathan P Mugridge

    Received mine yesterday. Totally awesome gesture.

    • Mithiragi


    • fireheartis1

      Congratulations man enjoy that delicious Pizza Hut!!!

    • Can you tell us about something you might have done that made you elligible?

  • Oblivion

    Can they get Pizza Hut to make it like they used to when they had a quality product?

  • AAAkabob

    Lol I love that you wrote if you’re too lazy to read the picture cause I actually skipped what it said^^

  • gmanextreme9

    I got one of those epic cards too. All I can say is THANK YOU NINTENDO!!!!

    • Can you tell us about something you might have done that made you eligible? ๐Ÿ™‚

      • gmanextreme9

        Well, I already have Gold Status and am close to getting Platinum again for 2014. Also, I bought and registered my Wii U before the price drop with a bunch of games.

        • Did they send it along with a club Nintendo reward? One user is saying that’s the case ๐Ÿ™‚

          Good on ya for your near plat status ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m only 25 coins away ๐Ÿ™

          • gmanextreme9

            No, they didn’t all I got was a envelope from Nintendo containing this letter and $40 from Pizza Hut.

          • Huh… interesting. Thank you very much ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Wiiluigi

    Where’s mine?!

  • I am Error.

    It would be nice to know what their qualifications were.
    I bought my Wii U day one and registered it with Club Nintendo right away.
    I’ve been on it daily and have spent hundreds of dollars in eShop purchases as well as registering about 9 physical disc titles. I made it to Platinum status in about three months.
    No card for me.
    But still, it’s a cool gesture for those getting one =)

  • C.S. Bailey

    Checking the mail in the morning.

  • fireheartis1

    This is so cool for the people who get one. Thanks Nintendo for being so cool too your fans. I doubt I’ll get one since I can’t access my Club Nintendo anymore, I forgot my password and my email got cancelled for some reason. Oh well too everyone who gets a card enjoy it and be very thankful.

  • Arthur Jarret

    Wow, wish they gave christmas presents to euro nintendo fans… I’ve got over 700 of their games! (And hundreds can be verified by them, as the CN codes have been there since gamecube/gba).

    We’ve got Pizza hut too!

  • Thomas Hughes

    I got one the other day

  • Thomas Hughes

    Didn’t realize it was so rare

  • Geek_Daddy

    I received one, I was kinda shocked

  • Sonnera

    I’ve gotten platinum every year since CN America started. Where’s my loyalty gift? ๐Ÿ™

  • opikal

    I bought a wiiU this year and several games, 3ds and several games. All I got was a poster.

  • Jacob Judd

    I bought The Wonderful 101. The game was it’s own reward, sure, but as one of the 12 americans who seemed to buy it, I feel like Reggie owes us some Pizza. The twelve of us , that is.
