Buy the cleaning kit thing that comes with 3 styli (maybe thats how you would say it...), a cleaning cloth and screen protectors. Some 3DS scratch their own screens and if you are as OCD as I am about the screen then you'll want screen protectors.

EDIT: Also log into the e-Shop so that you are an ambassador and can get your free games eventually.

Go update your 3DS and connect to the eShop BEFORE Aug 11th. If you don't, you won't get 20 free games.

Log on to the eShop so you can register for you're 20 free Ambassador game, and look around to see whatever looks interesting.

You're gonna be tempted to return it in a few months time. Resist that urge.

Take time to explore all the features and don't rely solely on retail games to make the system worth it right now (even though Zelda is basically a must-have).

Get creative with the 3D camera (I love the face morph feature), explore the Augmented Reality apps, and take it around with you and try to find people to Streetpass with.

A lot of people complain about a lack of games, but I was kept busy for a few months just using the creative aspects of the system.

I would highly recommend Cave Story and Zelda: Links Awakening from the eShop. Army Defender is pretty cool too, and it costs less than $2 USD. Shantae is supposedly a very good eShop game as well, but it's a little more on the expensive side (I think $12 or $13).

That's all you have to do. The games for the Ambassador Program haven't been released yet. I believe the NES games will be available Sept. 1st and the GBA games will be available at a later date (someone correct me if I'm wrong).
