Club Nintendo Refunds Coins

Gamers who purchased a white DS game card case from Club Nintendo in North America may soon be getting a refund.

Nintendo will be refunding 300 Club Nintendo Coins to fans who purchased a white Nintendo DS game card case, which originally was available for 600 coins.

In addition to these extra coins, the Club Nintendo year is quickly coming to a close, and anyone who wants to qualify for the special end-of-the-year rewards should have their coins accumulated by July 1. For those searching for some extra coins, Sin & Punishment 2 is due out next week and can net you at least 50 coins.

The email that Nintendo issued reads:

Thank you for being a member of Club Nintendo!

During the first year of Club Nintendo, you redeemed 600 Coins for a White Nintendo DS Game Card Case. That case was eventually removed from the Club Nintendo catalog and we have now returned it back to the catalog at a reduced Coin value.

In this case, we have chosen to add the 300 Coin difference between the old and new Coin value to your Club Nintendo account.

Please note that this is not something we typically do but felt it was a way to show our thanks for being a member of from Club Nintendo from the start. Please enjoy the extra Coins!

Too bad they don't do that for people that bought Wiis and DS's at the launch price.

Oh come on BnM, this is a nice gesture and easy for them to do since the Coins have no cash value. Paying launch prices means you don't have to wait two years to buy the system.

I was just kidding. Not a serious comment at all.
