Why is it that all the "rewards" for Club Nintendo are always lame?

I had a few coins saved up and was going to redeem them, but they've only got like one page of rewards and all I saw on there is a bunch of stuff that you couldn't pay me to take(Solitaire anyone?). You'd think they'd have better stuff as more of an incentive to register more products, but it just seems like a waste of time to me. Even the free Donkey Kong: Original Edition you're supposed to get doesn't come for like 3-4 weeks after you register a qualifying product. And that's just to get an e-mail with a code to download it. How friggin long does it take to e-mail someone? Don't think I'll be going to Club Nintendo again. I got better things to do.

Well, then again, it is free. It could be better but whining about it as if it's some sort of insult is silly.

As far as their Game Rewards go, I think they just underestimate the value of the Coins. Seriously, they should put up better games. I'm not asking for best sellers or anything, but it shouldn't be something that can be bought for $2. As far as the other rewards go...Honestly, it really depends on the product. Some of them are very much worth it, while others are not. It's more personal preference.

Self-entitlement, much?

Seriously, if you can find a better use for the Coins you get for registering your games, by all means, let's hear it. Nintendo doesn't have to offer you anything, yet they're giving you plenty of options to use your Coins on. Not just physical items, but digital downloads that rotate every other week, too. What more do you want?

Instead of crying and complaining, how about you hold onto those Coins until something rolls around that catches your eye. Zelda: Majora's Mask for a measly 150 Coins was an easy choice for me. Even Mario's Picross was well worth the 100 Coins.

I'll admit, there isn't a "gem" available every week, but have some patience. Well, going by your reaction to the e-mail waiting time, I'm guessing that might be a stretch for you.

So far redeemed the 18 card 3ds case and a Black Invincible Star bag which I both use. I just collect until I find something I like. Nintendo does not have to put those Nintendo club vouchers in the game packages so I don't get the complaining. Since you think its lame don't redeem the codes and give it to someone who might want to use it.
