I didn't even this was happening. I guess that's because I haven't been on my Club Nintendo account lately..

I was actually on there today filling out surveys and it worked pretty well for me. The only thing I noticed was that when I ordered a reward the site didn't deduced the coins for my game lol.

I was actually hoping this would rellate to me not getting my Donkey Kong, 5 Weeks after downloading Layton.
I strangly got coins for Bloons TD, without ever buying it. What about the long loading issue when logging in to Club Nintendo?

i thought i saw a bug before were i had bought a game and it didnt deduct the coins right away but nothing to big i was on there earlier adding my game but didnt even check the coins i got for it xP

I have about 5 surveys on there for games I've never purchased. I tried to fill one out but it keeps kicking my back to the home page. Obviously, I'm OK with that (I shouldn't get coins for that anyway). But I can't register any of my new game purchases... gotta' get enough coins to get that gold nunchuck!

I really hope this get's fixed,because i was not aware of this and i just bought Transformers Prime for the 3DS and went to register the code,but it said i had already registered it(it was a brand new game,sealed too),so i hope it get's fixed and i get my coins because otherwise i just lost 30 coins



Auracle said:

I haven't been on in a while, so I didn't notice. Hopefully this is resolved come Christmas, as I'm pretty sure I'll have some games to add then.

It was just yesterday I emailed customer support because I have been having trouble getting coins for the past few weeks. It hit a breaking point this week when I couldn't get coins for the brand new 3DS XL and Wii U I bought on the same day. The only issue I have with their apology is that there was a game or two where I simply didn't fill out the survey because I wasn't getting coins. Now they are expired and so apparently will never get coins for them. Oh well, I'm sitting on a treasure trove of them anyway...

I hadn't notice but I haven't bought any games recently to take surveys on. I hope they get this problem fixed by Christmas so I can register my Wii U.



Boo_Buster said:

@Wanderhope 3DS XL AND Wii U in the same day? MONEYBAGS!!!!! What is your credit card information? lol jk

I didn't get the coins for my Little Inferno survey, so hopefully they get this fixed. It's only 20 coins though so not a huge deal. Hopefully they fix this and allow people to delete "To-Do's"! Sometimes I hope to get games only to not get them because of certain reasons (bad reviews, money, ect...) and there is no way to get rid of the "To-Do's". I want those ten coins if I do get the game, but I don't want that game reminding me I didn't get it either haha



WindWakerLink said:

Ah, so it was messing up. I did two surveys on Monday and...for me to get coins I have to do the survey twice which I thought was weird because the questions were EXACTLY the same. Good to know. Thanks for this post Damien.



ouroborous said:

THEY FREAKIN' NEED NEW REWARDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That's far more of an issue.
Not to mention NClub should be universal, UK gets Icarus Card packs, JP gets that awesome Mario crew statue that was a premium reward a while back, US gets nothin useful or new in ages.



itsanandito said:

I'm with ouroborous! They do need new rewards. I've had coins sitting around for over two years. At least put more games worth downloading on Club Nintendo.



Shotgunryugan said:

Looks like it got fixed now(at least for me),got my 30 coins from Transformers Prime
Though i had to do the survey twice,because the first time i had an error message >.>



SYZYGY said:

it is back and working fine now, just got my coins from my new Wii U, that i couldnt register before. (you may have to take the survey again.)



Schprocket said:

@itsanandito You want to see the ... delights... that were the Australian Club Nintendo. I don't know what it was like years ago but since I bought the 3DS last year, even up to 1000 coins only gets an underwhelming choice from a facecloth, pencil case, folding fan, and I think Game & Watch compendium to choose from.
I'm hoping that whenever the Euro catalogue is back in commission - because that's where I've been getting redirected to - that we can trade coins for things a little less esoteric, such as eShop titles...
