POLL are you an Ambassador or a Scambassador?

I bought my 3DS in November 2011 when Target was doing their $145 deal. I traded that in for an XL in August 2012 at GameStop for $100. I still came out cheaper than all you people that bought 3DSs at launch. $245 < $249.99. I have not failed Nintendo in any form or fashion.

My current retail library includes:
- Super Mario 3D Land
- Tales of the Abyss
- Kingdom Hearts 3D
- Sonic Generations
- Paper Mario Sticker Star
- Resident Evil Revelations
- Pilot Wings Resort (got free at GameStop for the XL trade)

I support Nintendo very much, thank you!
I always rush here to tell GameFAQs my problems!

My parents got me the 3DS at full price, but put it away for my birthday, which was post price drop, meaning I never got the games :(

I bought a used Ambassador system for $180 ($150 after Amazon gift cards), and sold it earlier this week for $210 to buy the Fire Emblem bundle.

The Ambassador program is for people who paid full price and felt screwed over by a quick price drop, not people who bought it within a few days of a price drop and just want free stuff.

That said, who the hell cares anymore?

The only ones annoyed by "scambassadors" are jealous people who payed full price and think that entitles them to be special. Nintendo doesn't care. Hell, I assume they wanted that to happen. Why else would they announce the ambassador program so early? They could have waited until after the price drop to announce that but they did it before to encourage people to buy it for that. They knew it would happen and didn't care because it got them more sales.

You're damn right I got my system the week before the price drop and then price matched it. I got the free games and the reduced price, and Nintendo got my money. I may have waited longer otherwise. If you took the risk as an early adopter, then that was your choice, and you have no right to complain that it didn't turn out the way you wanted it to.

There's one thing Scambassadors have that real Ambassadors will never have: an extra $80.

Scambassador 4 life!
Shop smart. Shop Mario Mart.

You still can (could?) if you contact Nintendo about it.
