Club Nintendo US Update: Binders, Bookmarks and Cards, Oh My

Posted by Jon Wahlgren

Spruce up your paperwork

Looks like Club Nintendo updates aren’t just for Europe this week now that its American counterpart has gone ahead and added a slew of stationary to its offerings.
 
For 250 Coins, you’re able to snag a folder and bookmark (three of each per) set with a Bowser, Toad & Friends or Mario & Friends theme. Big spenders can throw down 300 coins for a 12-piece greeting card set featuring either Mario & Luigi or Nintendogs (specifically: dachshund, labrador and Chihuahua) themes.
 
While you’re at it, don’t forget to fill out the Bonus survey worth a free 30 Coins – you’ll be one-tenth closer to spreading Chihuahua cheer.
 
Thanks to reader Jonathan Watkins for the tip!

I would like to say that this is better than nothing, but now they have an excuse not to update it for another few months.

I'm just gonna be patient. It's not like it's the last update ever, and they did just barely collect data on what everyone would like to see...

Some how I think getting this is partially my fault for saying I'm 13/14 years old on the 95 surveys I've filled out of the year. Curse you Nintendo for putting up items appropriate to my age!
(They are kind of nice if you only have 250 coins left over from something though)

S'about time. Even if they're not the greatest. Also, this news post is misleading. I got really excited about having a Mario-themed binder but was disappointed to see that they're only folders. Please rectify!

Anyway, I may end up getting the Bowser set.

Good that this time it didn't take a whole year. They are useless but don't seem too bad.

seriously US Club Nintendo. Seriously. Please try harder to push me away from the Wii Brand and any sort of company loyalty.

Nintendo's missteps counter just grew by one.

If I were in 5th grade this may have been appealing.

For those who haven't figured it out yet--this may be the time to get a PS3 :)

@Swerd_Murd ...you are considering leaving Nintendo because they are not giving you free stuff that you like? Okkaayyyy....
I do have to agree though that this is horrible. I would be caught dead carrying around video-game folders, and I don't think my grandma would get it if the card I sent her had Bowser on it....

One word "crap". You're telling me that we have to spend over five hundred dollars on Nintendo games just for nintendo to give us a stack of greetings card or a stupid binder! Pretty lame! That's like less than a ten dollar value!

I filled out the survey and asked for points or games to be available- even if at usurious rates. Whoever asked for folders, bookmarks and greeting card sets, you are dead to me.

I can't decide whether to get the Bowser folders or wait until I have enough coins to get the Zelda posters.

Useless, but at least they updated, and they are asking for user input for what items they should offer. Make good suggestions!!!

Got an error after submitting the 30 coin survey and did not get coins and I cannot take it again because the site thinks i took it. Latest version of XP and Firefox and I have not had problems using these things before. The survey must be messed up.

@Pheonix I did ask for more Japanese Club Nintendo awards, but I thought that would mean soundtracks, not stupid paperwork things. You have all the right to punch me in the soul.

@Swerd_Murd: I have a PS3 and last time I checked Sony doesn't give you butt butter for registering games. I could be wrong, but as far as I know, Nintendo is the only game company offering free stuff to their loyal customers. The update doesn't interest me either, but didn't you enjoy the games that earned you the club nintendo points?

For what it's worth, i doubt this update has anything to do with the survey. I doubt they've even started looking at the data yet, seeing as it was still on the front page of CN as of yesterday. It takes time to get enough people to actually do the survey to be worthwhile, then analyze the data, then design and produce new awards. I would think the earliest the survey results would have an effect on awards would be late spring/summer.

Lackluster update items but thanks for the mentioning the survey and free coins, I'm off to do that straightaway!

Lame update! Instead why didn't we get these fun prizes:

2000 Nintendo Points Cards (2000 Coins)
Mario, Zelda, and Pokemon Plush Toys (200-500 Coins)
Exclusive Virtual Console/WiiWare downloads (500-1500 Coins)

I think retro controllers would be cool to get. Like a redone N64 controller where the joystick doesn't wear down. That way, people who like to play N64 games, they can play it comfortably like they were intended. On top of that, nintendo could then release more N64 VC games.

@Good: 2000 coins for $20 worth of Wii Points? Are you NUTS? No WAY that should cost so much, especially with plush toys costing 500 coins.:|

@Bobpie: And I'm still jealous of your face towels. Sure beats THIS rot.:P

The Nintendo Points cards and the digital downloads are a bad idea to suggest. It would be better to see more physical/real rewards than those two. The Nintendo plush toys are a good idea though. :)

@Courtest

Crap...I forgot to ask for an N64 classic controller. I ask for that on every VC game I download. (Yes, even if it's not N64, I twist my survey answers for it.)

The face towels ARE awesome......
