    With the Elite Status gifts now announced and available, and the ability to earn further Coins suspended, Nintendo's reward program is now winding down to make room for DeNA's launch this fall. How did you fare with Club Nintendo over the years? Or any of it's predecessors and variations like the My Nintendo program or Nintendo Power?

    Our North American version got a lot of flack over the years for not having as nice a selection of physical rewards. The SNES-style Wii Classic Controller gets brought up a lot. I don't know why you'd want it besides the look, tbh. The Classic Controller Pro is a superior and more ergonomic SNES controller for your Virtual Console needs, really. Plus I have an actual colourful SNES controller than I play a real SNES with, so I don't care.

    I think I did pretty well through the program regardless though. How about you?

    Over the years, I scored:

    • 3D Classics: Kid Icarus

    • Art Style: PiCTOBiTS

    • Diddy Kong Racing Plushie (Diddy Kong with Car, earned through Hyrule Town Square forums)
    • F-Zero Watch
    • F-Zero X
    • Flipnote Studio 3D
    • Fluidity
    • Fluidity: Spin Cycle

    • Game & Watch Collection

    • Game & Watch Collection 2

    • Kid Icarus: Uprising - AR Idol Card Pack

    • Kirby's Dream Land 3

    • Mario & Friends Commemorative Pin Badge Collection

    • Mario Premium Playing Card Set

    • NES Remix

    • NES Remix 2

    • New Super Mario Bros.

    • Super Mario Characters Figurine (with decorative Question Mark Block packaging)

    • Super Mario Hat

    • Super Metroid

    • Super Smash Bros. 4 - Mewtwo DLC

    • The Legend of Zelda - Collector's Edition (Promotional Disc)

    • The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D - Official Soundtrack

    • The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD

    • The Wonderful 101

    • Wii Gold Nunchuck

    And my Elite Status history:
    • 2015: Platinum (985 coins)
    • 2014: Platinum (735 coins)
    • 2013: somehow I didn't even make gold this year, I fail as a Nintendo fan (175 coins)
    • 2012: Platinum (620 coins)
    • 2011: Platinum (760 coins)
    • 2010: Platinum (670 coins)
    • 2009: Platinum (1030 coins)
    I never quite mastered the coin roll-over from year-to-year and I let a lot more coins expire than I should have. Even if there wasn't something I really wanted, I should have at least picked up a shirt or something. Oh well :\

    How did you do? What'd you think of the program? What are you hoping for from their new one?
