    surprised i hadn't seen this mentioned, but does the n3ds not have any club nintendo codes, i was hoping to finally get something to finish off my club nintendo account before they close with the code from the new console, but no code in the box, well there was the MM code, but none for the console :(....i emailed nintendo and they said that the n3DS is eligible for any club nintendo stars,

    now i realize they are shutting club nintendo down, but seems a bit sucky to remove the codes before the service has even been ended considering they still put one in for the game, so basically i just wanted to see if nobody else got a club nintendo code with their console (uk specifically)

    I know you said U.K. specifically, but when I got my Japanese N3DS LL back in December, it didn't come with any Club Nintendo points either, so I doubt any region is getting them. Someone else would have to elaborate on the North American models, though (I have no plans on buying an American model, perfectly happy with my Japanese one!).

    They're killing Club Nintendo. Why would they give us points?

    yeah but i got them for MM so its not like they are just not making them any more, or avoiding putting them in the box as they will be useless soon, anyways seems a bit crappy, i understand *why* i just think they could of at least let people have their last codes to cover getting something before it closes .....i guess they want to avoid people reaching targets before they close though :(

    Didn't like it either but I kinda understand it.. Would you give coupons for a taco with purchase of a taco while the taco stand is closing down? (Lot's of taco's.) I wouldn't..

    If I remember right they are replacing club nintendo with another rewards system. New games will not have Club nintendo codes but will be able to go towards the new system.

    was there 2 codes or just 1, as i got the code to register majora's mask, but not one for the console, with the ltd edition console you used to get one for the console and one for the game

    PS, try changing the 0 for O or the other way around......dont know why they decided to use O's and 0's in the codes

    I still got my code from my 3ds xl, might give it.. it takes wayyy to many codes to actually get something so it's better if someone who's collecting them to have the points I guess? Pm please :)
