In Sweden where I come from there is no Nintendo Club. Due to our national Nintendo distributors being such pricks I usually try not to send my money their ways. I therefor sometimes get those "register your game at nintendo club notes". As I´d like to trade in those club nintendo points to regular wii shop points I have made myself a club nintendo account but can´t lock it to my "swedish" Wii. My question is: is it possible to: change localization to uk and lock my wii to club nintendo, redeem my wii points, buy some game and change back to swedish localization? Read somewhere that points will reset to zero if I change country, true? Any other drawbacks?

On my last "register your game" card I got these countries was mentioned as "Eligibility to membership" UK & Ireland, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Belgium, Netherlands, Portugal and South Africa.@killer6370: Noticed that your registred nintendolife country was germany, maybe there is no problem for you??

Ok, off topic.. how much does points cost in UK?

About £15 dude, £18-20 tops, for 2000 points. I wish you luck in your endeavors, does seem unfair you can't claim what you are entitled to.

So now i Got the reply from Nintendo, It says points wont be lost because whole europe is accesing the same shop so you can change from exmple italia to France etc without any trouble but if you chose australia software will be lost because its an different server

So if I change region (as europe to australia) I will not only lose my points but also my games? I thought games were locked to my Wii ID. Very well, I will keep myself within Europe. Let us know if or if not you run into any troubles when you change to uk. I will wait a while, was just short of N-Club points to get any useful amount of Wiipoints. Anybody else that has any info about this topic? Feel free to share it with the rest of us.

So now its confirmed you can change country to everywhere in europe(just put mine on UK to buy points and everything is still there) i could even download the BBC Iplayer channel but am not using it because my connection is too slow

Did you have any points when you changed country?

I have the same problem. I live in Denmark and we dont have Club Nintendo either! But just to be sure, I can change me location to UK or another EU country To get my points on the shop channel (and even buy points with UK prices). And I won't lose any game or points?:):) But if I change to Australia i lose everything?

In Aus we hhave next to nothing in the Club Nintendo rewards. And as I buy a lot of games from the UK (as they end up a lot cheaper than getting them here), I can;t get the rewards from my Aus account. Ive thought about setting up a UK CN account, but Im not sure if they will post hhere.

I had 500 points on my wii, changed to uk bought 1000 points and returned to Germany now i have 1500 points

Great info, killer6370. How much did you pay for 1000 points in the Wii shop?
16. Posted: Fri 20th Nov 2009 16:09 GMT
8,44 Euro for 1000 points because UK they cost 7 Pounds for 1000 so its nearly 2,50 euro cheaper than in our shop channel

Crap. I bought 3000 points a couple of hours ago.
18. Posted: Fri 20th Nov 2009 17:04 GMT
5000 Points cost only 35 pounds
