Be a PAL - Become a Connection Ambassador

Promotion now available in PAL territories

On October 21st, Nintendo's Connection Ambassador Promotion launched in Europe and Australia. The idea behind it is to reward those loyal fans who can get their friends to connect their Wii to the Internet. The ambassador and the person they help will both receive 500 free Wii Points when someone connects their Wii to the Internet, a nice little incentive to try out some of the machine's features.

If a player can get 10 people connected, they will achieve gold status and can download every Nintendo published NES game for free on VC, as well as receiving a total of 5,000 Wii Points. If he/she can connect 20 or more people to the Internet, they'll hit platinum status, and receive a total of 10,000 Wii Points to spend on WiiWare games and can download ALL NES, Super Nintendo and Nintendo 64 games on Virtual Console for FREE.

Here is the official guide to becoming an ambassador from Nintendo's own website.
