Exclamation Global Club Nintendo Discontinuation

As of the 30th of September 2015, all Club Nintendo services will be discontinued to make way for a new loyalty service.

Quote:
Current NA Schedule:

Link to the North American page with more information.
Quote:
Current EU and AU Schedule:
  • April 1st 2015: From this date, Nintendo will no longer include product registration cards with its packaged games, so such products cannot be registered in Club Nintendo. You may still find product registration cards in games that were in stock before this date, however.
  • April 20th 2015: Termination of the registration of digital products downloaded from Nintendo eShop. Digital products obtained from Nintendo eShop after this date will no longer appear in the My Registered Games & Systems page in Club Nintendo. In addition, surveys for download software titles will no longer be available.
  • September 30th 2015: End of Club Nintendo programme. All Club Nintendo features, such as signing up as a new member, logging in as a registered member, earning Stars, and exchanging Stars for items from the Stars Catalogue will no longer be possible from this date.
Link to the European and Australian pages with more information.
Quote:
FAQ from the Australian Club Nintendo page:
Q. Until when will I be able to earn Stars?
A. Registration for all products will be closed on September 30th 2015. Please make sure to register your products as soon as possible.

Q. What about the expiry dates for PIN codes?
A. PINs on Nintendo games will automatically expire 5 years from the original title release date in Australia and New Zealand (Please check product listing on Nintendo Australia website for all eligible Nintendo games and their release dates), or on September 30th 2015, whichever date is sooner. PINs on hardware will expire 30th September 2015. Please make sure to register your products as soon as possible.

Q. Until when can I submit post-play surveys?
A. Post-play surveys will be available until September 30th 2015.

Q. What about the registration of download software and Wii U hardware?
A. In addition to registration of a Wii U console, download software can also be registered without using PIN codes by linking your Club Nintendo account prior to the software download, however registration will no longer be possible after April 20th 2015.

Q. Until when can I sign up as a Club Nintendo member?
A. It is possible to sign up until September 30th 2015.

Q. Until when can I exchange Stars for items from the Stars Catalogue?
A. It is possible to exchange Stars for Stars Catalogue items until September 30th 2015. If you have any Stars, please be sure to use them as soon as possible. Stars expire 36 months after they have been earned. Unredeemed stars that are older than 36 months will be deleted from your account and cannot be used. Please check ‘My Account’ in Club Nintendo for Stars expiration information. There are plenty of unique and exclusive items already available in the Stars Catalogue, and we’ll keep adding more over the coming months, so there’s plenty to spend your Stars on before September 30th 2015.

Q. What about unused Stars?
A. Any Stars not used by September 30th 2015 will be lost.

Q. Do I need to end my Club Nintendo membership?
A. No, there is no need to end your membership yourself.

Q. What about New Nintendo 3DS and New Nintendo 3DS XL?
A. These handheld systems are not registrable in Club Nintendo.

Q. When will it be possible to sign up for the new membership programme?
A. Instructions for how to sign up for the new programme will be provided to Club Nintendo members later in the year.
Edit, here is the page for the Japanese Club Nintendo information

Oh and Flipnote 3D will be free, and will be given to all members who register with the new loyalty site during the launch period.

Man, I really hope this means they are readying an account based licensing system. Oh well, guess I shall spend the rest of my coins soon. Probably get me another 18 game card holder as well as virtual console games.

Flipnote 3D finally releasing is serious news.

The rewards have been slowing down for awhile so I'm not that shocked this is happening.

We're getting a new program to replace it so I'm not too sad. It's been fun.

I'm so close to getting enough coins for the Smash poster. Like I only need 1 or 2 more codes. :'(

My prediction is that they're going to go for a reward system based on NFC, like a scannable card inside the game case.

And eliminate the need for a separate website and integrate it into the 3DS/Wii U OS.

Good guess.

And I welcome a new account system. Progress is being made, guys!

About how much would a card like that run to produce? It's a neat idea, but I dunno if I can expect something like that from a company for which printing an extra piece of paper to print codes on got to be too much.

NFC tags cost about 1 dollar each on Amazon, so to a huge company ordering millions of them they would be a few cents, I guess?

Hopefully the new physical and digital rewards they add in February are worth it, and I'd love it if they reintroduced some of the older CN rewards. I missed out on that expensive Luigi's Mansion figure two years ago, and finally getting to play Doc Louis' Punch-Out would be fantastic. Hopefully the new rewards program has better rewards on a more consistent basis, and launching it alongside a unified NNID account system wouldn't be a bad idea either.

If I'm going to go through the pain of registering all these, they damn well better add rewards that are worth getting!

Spoiler!


Right now there's only junk on Club Nintendo AU, like digital wallpaper, mobile ringtones, shoe laces and festive wrapping paper, etc.

I got Super Mario 3D Land. I already beat this game but I really liked it, enough to spend my last points on.

Club Nintendo Australia sure sucks. The only new reward that's been added is the A Link Between Worlds soundtrack.

Why can't we get digital rewards? I have so many points to spend, probably enough to redeem 3 or 4 games.

Just got Metroid II, goodbye Club Nintendo. I didn't hit either gold or platinum this year, but it's fine since I'm not really interested in the games.

If I had any points I'd be interested in the goodbye coin. Maybe I can find it on eBay at some point.
