Platinum Club Nintendo Members Can Get A Gold Wii Wheel

Hardcore Club Nintendo members are entitled to more than free Club Nintendo only DS games. This year platinum members, participants that registered over 400 points between October 1, 2007 and September 30, 2008, get to walk away with one of three bonus items. This years choices are:

Wii Golden Handle – A gold colored Wii Wheel.

Super Mario’s Hat – The iconic plumber’s hat made out of fluffy polyester for you to wear.

2009 Club Nintendo Calendar – Three copies of a desktop calendar with a set of stickers. Gold members, Club Nintendo members with 200 – 399 points get the calendar package a bonus, but cannot choose the other two items.


Neat items, but not nearly as cool as the Super Famicom Classic Controller and two disc Super Mario Galaxy soundtrack Nintendo gave out last year to platinum members. Out of this year’s selection the Super Mario hat is the coolest. I just don’t imagine I would get any use out of it outside of throwing it on a shelf or a plush Prinny.

    these prizes are like kicking yourself in the nuts.

    The wheel was not very practical to me.. I still haven’t figured out what the “gold” wheel icon means from the online play. Many places were selling the Super Famicom Wii controller for around $50, but I wasn’t sure if it’s worth it.. I’m eyeing the upcoming Wii classic controller from Hori now.

    No, no. These prizes are like signing up to randomly get yourself kicked in the nuts. At least when you kick yourself in the nuts, you’re prepared for the aftermath.

    This is like you clicking on spyware, and then walking around the corner next week and some guy kicks you in the balls and leaves a printout of an unsubscribe form on your writhing figure.

    Hum, they have had things before I thought looked neat but I don’t see anything here I care about. No thanks.
