Good news has made its way to the inbox of many in the NA region who qualified for Elite Status this past year: Club Nintendo is getting ready to drop its bagful of goodies.
If all goes well, Christmas might come a little early for those fortunate gamers who earned enough coins for a Mario hat or a copy of Doc Louis's Punch-Out!!
If you selected a prize but did not receive an email from Club Nintendo, it might be worth wading through your spam filter. For those interested, the entire email is reproduced below:
Hello [you old such-and-such],
We wanted to let you know that we are preparing to begin shipping
the 2009 Elite Status Rewards!
We had thousands of loyal Nintendo fans reach Elite Status last June
and it is going to take us a couple of weeks to ship all the orders.
So, even though your friends or neighbors may receive their Reward
before you do, please be assured that your order is being processed too!
You will receive another email when your reward order ships.
Thank you for your interest and excitement and we hope you enjoy your
Club Nintendo Elite Status Reward.
Nintendo of America Inc.
Consumer Service Department
Have you been lucky enough to receive such an email? If not, don't despair - there's still time!
hurray for those who made it but sadly i'm not one of those
I can't wait to play DL's Punch Out!
I got my e-mail. I guess it won't be too much longer until I get my year's supply of Nintendo calendars.
I still haven't gotten my email. Should I be worried?
"What's ur favorite kind of flowers? Mine's CHOCOLATE!!! Hahaha"
cant wait for punchout!!!
expect my pic to be me in that mario hat
Got the email. On the edge of my seat.
@D_Johnson and anyone else who hasn't gotten their letter:
Check your spam filters; that's where mine was. But if you don't end up getting a letter by the close of this week, I'd contact Club Nintendo as soon as possible. If there's some kind of oversight, you'll want them to correct it now, while there's still time to get you in the queue!
I can't wait for you to TASTE TO COLD SHAME OF BEING A PIRATE SHUNNED BY THE UPSTANDING MEMBERS OF THE GAMING COMMUNITY. BURN IN THY FORSAKEN DISGRACE, PIRATE.
Anyway, I got the e-mail I'm hoping the Doc Louis download is up by next Monday, or so. I can't wait!
Yay Mario hat!!!!
Got my email. Hopefully, it won't take too long for my digital download to arrive in the mail.
Got the Email a few hours before this article. Sounds pretty awesome!
Hmm I hope to see a review here on NL. Unless all the elite members chose the Mario hat
Yes cant wait!
"Hmm I hope to see a review here on NL. Unless all the elite members chose the Mario hat."
I couldn't pass up more Punch-Out!! I'd be more than happy to write up my feelings on it, but if I know Dazza, he's got me lined up to review Sexy Poker II: Sexy Pokier instead.
MARIO HAT TIME! OH YEAH!
...Sexy POKIER? Please tell me that's not real...
Do you still have time to join and get the prizes?
Just checked my email, cant wait.
@ Toad Fan 101:
No, you had to be registered and have platinum status by sometime in July to qualify for this year's prizes.
I got the email. My Mario Hat will be coming soon - I can't wait
I got letter email but not one that said it has shipped. I can't wait for my Mario Hat. It would be cool if we could get the calendar with it too.
Mine has already shipped!
Yay! I'm getting my calendar.
