CCC Says: "It's that time of year where we all start attending to our Club Nintendo backlogs. The Club Nintendo coin-accumulating year has begun anew, and we're all back at square one and I get the feeling most people are in my position.
See, somewhere over the past few years, I got ahead on my Club Nintendo points. This led to the development of a system. Once I reach Platinum status each year, I stop redeeming points unless there's a reward I just have to own. I know for downloadable games I don't have a choice, but the second I see that Platinum shield, I put all the slips from my physical purchases in a folder for the next year."
