    I just bought Captain Toad from Amazon and I don't see the cn code anywhere? No insert or behind the cover. Isn't the deadline for using cn codes at the end of this month? I'm kinda ticked because I just needed 40 more points to get a game I wanted. Is there a way I can still get my points from this game if I contact Nintendo?

    They said something about all games released after Jan 20th will not have CN codes. Whether that includes later prints of games that launched prior to this date but were printed after it, I dunno.

    So I called up Nintendo and they added the game to my account as a courtesy and I should have the survey on my account shortly. I was surprised they didn't ask for any upc codes or anything. They did say it was a 1 time thing and they couldn't do it again but I'm happy to just get my points for this game.

    Good to hear.. It's probably not worth the trouble for them to go full NSA just to verify you bought a game just to give you a few CN points

    European release is different as ours have physical Club Nintendo cards while the Americans had it printed on the reversible cover.

    DLC Party 10 and Mario Vs. Donkey Kong: Tipping Stars are the last two Wii U games to come with Club Nintendo cards.

    Not that it matters, unless it visually bothers you. Theres literally nothing on the EU shop worth any points.

    Zelda's OST CD was totally worth ordering twice.

    I disagree. Once was enough and it wasn't even that great. Kappa

    To be frank, you never really got them for free as you had to pay for it through each and every Nintendo game unless you bought the codes from eBay or someone gave them to you for free.

    Despite being 'free' it still comes at a cost.

    If Zelda's OST CD comes in stock one again I'll just order it as I'm guessing there'll be nothing better than that anyway.
