Jun 30th, 2014


Just a quick heads up for anyone who enjoys getting the Gold and Platinum Club Nintendo rewards that will be on offer later this year. June 30 is the cut-off date for entering any coins you’ve been saving. If you’ve already achieved Platinum status this year, then hold any surveys that aren’t expiring today until tomorrow, when the date rolls over and they’ll count toward your 2015 Platinum status.

If you’re unfamiliar with Club Nintendo, every year from July 1st to June 30th of the next year, Nintendo offers coins on 1st party title purchases/downloads, as well as registering any new systems you may have purchased. Each retail purchase has a Club Nintendo insert, while those who download their games must link their Nintendo Network ID to their Club Nintendo account in order to receive coins.

Those who purchase enough games to receive 300 coins in a single time period are awarded Gold Status, while those who achieve 600 coins in the same time period receive Platinum Status. Usually in the fall Nintendo will announce the awards for those who achieved these status’ and you can pick a prize. Previous prizes have been anything from statues to posters, at Nintendo’s discretion.

    is this available in european club nintendo? anybody know, cause this would be awesome

    • Petri

      No, European club Nintendo has some kind of stars catalog, that has no digital rewards, and does not work in every country.
      There is Wii points though, but to get those, you need a Wii console, Wii U wont cut it.

      • YogiGRB

        thx for the info, to bad though

  • nintendope

    I may have gained enough coins to achieve platinum status twice.

    • Crocket

      I’m sitting on like 8 codes right now since I already hit Platinum status.

  • Little Seal

    WOW let’s wait for Bonsai Barber as reward! Or Kirby’s for 3DS
    So excited! (Ironic mode: ON)

  • palomino blue

    So if I’m over 600 I should wait to register any more games right? If I haven’t spent the points will I lose them? If I do spend them, do I still get the prize later this year?

    • Jon

      yes, if you have platinum already, wait

    • Marioman21

      No points only expire every 2 years.

  • Jon

    I was platinum status 2 hours after the reset and I’ll hit it again come fall 😀

  • slush_puppie

    thanks for the reminder! i was only 40 points away, and had 130 points worth of pending surveys and registrations. would’ve felt like a bonehead for forgetting them.

  • Alex

    too bad i have the platinum nintendo club reward, currently live in south america and hold a canadian eshop account. i can’t ship my gifts to other countries abroad 🙁

    • steveb944

      Hope for a digital reward this time around.

      • Alex

        in this case i can download it without any problem 🙂

    • Fred

      The last 2 years I downloaded a free game for my reward

    • Dominicruz

      remember we are living in a digital era mi Amigo Nintendo always offer digital games

    • Damon Munday

      I’m canadian! If it’s something you can’t use I’d love to have something cool like that.

    • Terence Stewart

      Can you please double check if you can send your gift to the United States. I just looked on the Nintendo club website and I think that you can. Please email me at tstewart97@icloud.com for my shipping address and name. Thank you so much. Your are so generous. I really appreciate this.

  • Corey Watford

    Does anyone know if points rollover, for e.g. Do I have to spend my points before a certain amount of time? etc

    • Marioman21

      Points last for 2 years

  • mojack411

    I just hit Platinum status when I registered my MK8 copy for my free game!

  • JFizDaWiz

    Finally. Now I can register a bunch of games. I already hit platinum so I was waiting to do these so they count towards 2014 platinum.

  • Jason

    Does this mean that coins we don’t use wii dissapear?

    • gerb1977

      No coins are good for 2 years. If you go to your account you can look and see if you have any coins set to expire.

      • Jason


  • Justin Graham

    someone lend me 80 coins email me a grahamj474@gmail.com you would
    be the best

    • Michael Ocampo

      You trying to get platinum or gold?

  • paulthevgking

    i hope the platinum reward is cool, not a game or poster (although it might be). I want a statue or even really unlikely, a amiibo.

    • Nintendo hire this guy

    • tux_peng

      I’m hoping for a limited edition amiibo

      • paulthevgking

        when do they announce the prizes

        • mralloverit

          some time in July according to the Club Nintendo FAQ.

      • mralloverit

        Exactly. Another awesome Collector’s Edition piece for the game shelf.

    • Mr. J

      I just checkd if I am and I am platinum woo boo!

  • Moyack

    ooooooh yeah!

    • Fred

      You can tell when I graduated from College

    • I’m missing one 🙁 but I think the reward that year was just the Punchout one.
      I’m actually surprised I’ve been able to keep making a way to afford games.

      edit: didn’t mean for the image to come out so big :

      • Chris Aita

        2009 was the Punch Out one, the 2012 was the button collection. It was kinda lame.

  • Dominicruz

    I only wish you can convert your points on nintendo credit for eshop I’m Platinum with
    2250 🙁

    • Fred

      You can’t do that, but I do the closest thing in that I only use my coins for free games. Every month I look at the free games being offered and if I think I’ll enjoy any of the games that’s what I use my coins on. No it’s not as good, but it’s good enough to keep me happy.

      • Dominicruz

        the bad thing is that Nintendo doesn’y offer great games on club nintendo I don’t want old classic games I want real games for wii u or any indigame

        • Fred

          Awhile back they offered a really fun Indie game on 3DS that I absolutely loved. It’s called Starship Defense. It’s not super common, but they offer indie games on there some months. I got Dillions Rolling Western on there (I’m not a huge fan of the game, but some people really love it). I also got Mario vs Donkey Kong Minis march again, they’ve had Warioware DIY Showcase, and Sakura Samari, as well as Fluidity, Dr. Mario Express, Art Academy First Semester, Radar Mission, You Me and the Cubes, Snowpack Park, Eco Shooter Plant, Art Style: Pictobits, Brain Age Express: Sudoku, Maboshi’s Arcade, Electroplankton, Bonsai Barber, PictureBook, Bird & Beans, Pro-Putt Domo, Art Style: Rotozoa, Touch Solitaire, ThruSpace, Art Style: Aquia, Link ‘n’ Launch, Aura-Aura Climber


  • Tray

    Last year, the announced the elite rewards in July. Hoping for something really cool this year.

  • 00EpicGamer00

    I have platinum! Hopefully it’s something good, and not like greeting cads, lol.

    • Fred

      I’m hoping for free games. I know most of you want toys or posters or something, but I’m more happy with free games.Although someone suggested an Amiibo and I’d LOVE that.Unfortunately I’ve never bought a single Skylander or Disney Infinity game-toy and I’m afraid if they give me a free Amiibo figure it might start me into buying piles of NFC toys to go with my piles of Nintendo games

  • WT Herrod Jr.

    Sitting at platinum already and have two surveys that expire tomorrow… Regarding expiration does that mean that they are no longer available tomorrow or will be available tomorrow and then gone on July 2nd? Anyone know?

  • ThugSmokerzOnly

    so do i have to use my coins today??

    • Fred

      No, not all coins expire today. The coins do have an expiration date, but it’s a period of time after you earned them, not a specific date on the calendar for all of everyone’s coins

  • Thomas Vienna

    I just don’t really buy games this time of year, so I don’t have anything I can wait to redeem. Doesn’t matter, I always end up getting to Platinum Status anyway.

  • tux_peng

    MK8 got me up to 610 for the year; tomorrow I’ll get my free game and register my copy of Tomodachi life (waiting so they’ll count for next years platinum)

    • tux_peng

      Last year I had 270. Already have purchases planned that’ll get me to 600 next year

  • MoodyG355

    Dang. I needed 70 coins to get Platinum status. Ah, oh well.

  • M4GE

    could anyone who has some extra codes lying around send them to me? it would be amazing.
    I still need 80 to get to platinum.

  • sillybajillies

    Had 290 coins. Luckily the Windwaker HD Post Play survey came in to finish it off!

  • Sam

    Aw crap now I have to spend the coins I’ve been saving. And there’s nothing I really want, but I don’t want to waste money.

    • You don’t loose your coins. This is just the last day to get Platinum or Gold status. Your coins will be fine.

      • Sam

        Oh okay good. Thanks. 😉

  • Jonathan Crout

    i just got wii u in april never used club nintendo im 60 coins shy is there huge difrence in prizes between ogld and platinum what r prizes do u get free games if its free games i hope i get something good for hitting gold

  • steveb944

    Thanks for this post! I was able to lock in Platinum with a Mario Kart post play survey, I wanted to save it but my other ones weren’t enough points.

  • brian

    Already at platinum. Waiting to do surveys for MK8 and WWHD after today.

  • Ghost8484

    So does that mean I need to spend my points I have saved up? What does this mean?

    • brian

      Nope. Just means that you have until today to lock in Gold or Platinum status with coins earned. Coins don’t go away.

      • Ghost8484

        Thanks.. I was about to go spending like crazy!!

        • paddle008

          Coins do expire after 2 years you can check them on Club Nintendo.

  • ZeldaFan83

    The Platinum rewards are usually pretty good so why do the regular rewards on their site suck so much.

  • Juilen Cardenas

    So.. now all your coins will disappear?

    • tux_peng

      No. Click Account->Status to see if you have any expiring coins

  • Chris Aita

    Six years and counting. Can’t wait for next year!

  • Alejandro A

    So.. I’m at 590 coins and I need 10 for platinum. Thing is, I just downloaded Castlevania III last night which according to the nintendo club website is worth 10 coins. When will I get those 10 coins by tonight???

  • Austin Troth

    Thank you for this article, I would have missed it if you hadn’t posted this!

  • I am Error.

    Crosses fingers for Custom Amiibo but will probably end up with yet another Mario item…

  • Color Colo

    Now have 630 coins status platinum if use coins 250 status will degrade to gold ?

  • Mr Ninty

    where do you find that platinum status? or is it only america

  • Nate

    Thanks to this article I didn’t waste my platinum status. I hadn’t checked my Club Nintendo account in a while and after seeing this article I logged in and found I needed 85 more coins. Easily knocked off 60 coins with surveys waiting from my puchase of Mario Kart 8 and the free Wii Party U download. To get the remaining 25 coins I bought Toki Tori 2 and Stick it to the Man (at 20 coins each). Hopefully there is a great gift this year!

    • Nookling

      Toki Tori two is a great game!

      • Nate

        I’m liking it so far (great deal at $5.99 too). The art style and sound effects make it a charming and relaxing game but much like the first game it is really hard to figure out some of the puzzles!

        • Nookling

          The difficulty is part of the appeal 🙂

  • Jon Cofer

    2014 Elite Status: Platinum (1240 coins)
    2013 Elite Status: Not Yet Qualified (0 coins)
    2012 Elite Status: Did Not Qualify (0 coins)
