I just got an e-mail from Nintendo saying I'm going to lose 600 Coins at the end of June if I don't use them. With the other stuff I still need to add, my Coin total will be near 1200.

I don't know what I should get... I'm eying the Starman messenger bag, the hand towels, the folding fans, and the hanafuda cards.

I've got the Zelda poster set, I'm looking forward to getting the Mario posters at some point, but the DS Game & Watch Collection 2 takes priority. 05/03/2011

While I like the concept of the Game & Watch DS things as exclusive items that are actually games, there are two problems:

1. They are DS games; a handheld that I am becoming increasingly unfond of.

2. They are Game & Watch collections... which hold no appeal to me from a gameplay standpoint.

I have seen David's posters, and they are pretty nice looking, but I don't have room on my walls. I would have room for the fans, however.

I think the hanafuda cards are a great piece of Nintendo memorabilia, so I'm considering those... but they cost 800 coins! While I do have nearly 1300 now, that's a lot to drop on cards that I will never use.

I already have a bunch of themed bags that I never use (like the Shivan Dragon backpack that just sits on a bookshelf), so the Starman messenger bag would probably be a waste too.

Hmmm... decisions.

I'm going to necro my own thread here, since I'm at the same crossroads again. I have 450 coins expiring in 2 weeks. I was saving them for the gold nunchuck, which Nintendo seems to have discontinued so hard that it isn't even listed as " currently unavailable."

My grand total of coins is up to 1020, and I'm 30 coins away from Platinum status for the year. I don't know where to get those 30 coins either. Curse you, Nintendo, for not releasing Pikmin 3 on time!!!!

Download a Wii U game or three. Those post-play surveys should do the trick. My next purchase is going too be the Mario poster set. 06/16/2013

In my opinion the prize selection has gotten significantly worse over the past year or so.  The next item I get that's actually available will probably be the giant AR Card, since I already have the Mario posters.  Hopefully they will come out with better stuff before I have to use my points. 06/19/2013

Jonzor, you're screwed. The Mario Posters are "currently unavailable." Which is apparently Nintendo Code for "never to be seen again."

That's not an opinion, db, it's a fact. Their prize selection has become absolutely atrocious. I don't really WANT any of the current prizes, but if I don't spend my coins I will simply be wasting them.

Curse you, Nintendo, for putting arbitrary expiration dates on imaginary currency!!!!

Oh no!  I checked like a month ago and I swear they were there!

No Mario posters, no hafanuda cards, no Game and Watch game... literally my top 3 rewards are off the shelf right now.
