PSA: Last Day to Claim Free Club Nintendo Elite Status Games

Club Nintendo’s final shutdown is still two months away, but one aspect of it–Elite Status gifts–won’t be available for much longer.

If you reached Gold or Platinum status during the past year, you need to choose your gift by today, April 30, at 11:59 PM PST. You can do so at Club Nintendo’s website.

Earning a certain number of coins in a given Club Nintendo year qualifies you for Gold (300 coins) or Platinum (600 coins) status. This entitles you to your choice of a free digital Wii U or 3DS game that is separate from the rewards you can spend your coins on.

Platinum members can choose from games like NES Remix 2, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, and Mario Kart 7, while Gold (and Platinum) members are eligible for the likes of Metroid Fusion, Advance Wars, and Super Mario Bros. 3.

The deadline has already passed for earning Club Nintendo coins. However, you have until June 30 to spend any coins you’ve earned since July 1, 2014. Available items include a variety of digital games and physical goods.

Club Nintendo’s closure was announced earlier this year to pave the way for a new rewards program.
