Club Nintendo -- free stuff for registering Wii/DS games
Club Nintendo has finally come to the US! You can get free stuff for registering specific Wii/DS games or taking surveys. Basically you register items and you get points for doing so. Then you get free stuff with the points. Go to club.nintendo.com and register. Don't forget the period between club and nintendo!
Some people are having trouble with the site. This is brand new from Nintendo and sure to have a couple speed bumps along the way. Just try again later, I guess...
Here is the basic point chart:
Wii Fit - 80 coins, Wii Games - 50 coins, DS Games - 30 coins, Virtual Console Game, WiiWare Game, Wii Channel - 10 coins, etc
Current free stuff costs between 300 and 800 points and ranges from a wiimote holder, to playing cards, to a simple DS game.
All games released December 2008 and after can be registered. Only some games released before December 2008 can be registered. A list is below. To register a retail game, you have to have the registration pin that comes on a piece of paper with the game. To register a virtual console game, you have to link your wii and club nintendo up (instructions at the website).
You can only register used games if the used game come with the registration code and if the code hasn't been used before.
This is not in the freebee section because it's not completely free. You have to register games you own.
Games released prior to December 2008
Many games released prior to December 2008 can be registered; however, of those games, only select Wii, Wii Shop Channel games, Wii Channels, and Nintendo DS games will qualify for surveys. See the list of games that can be registered and qualify for surveys below:

Note: you have to link your club nintendo account to your wii account for wii shop games and channels to get you points. Then it only counts for games/channels you buy after you link accounts. If you bought wii shop games before you linked accounts, you have to do this to get them to count:
"Wii Shop Channel games and Wii Channels downloaded prior to creating the Club Nintendo link will not be displayed. Please email us by clicking here to have your previously-downloaded Wii Shop Channel games and Wii Channels added to your Club Nintendo account. You will need to provide us with all pertinent information (name, email address, serial number, game titles, etc.). Not providing all of the pertinent information will increase the time it takes to find a solution and receive a reply. You can also call us at 1-800-255-3700. Representatives are available from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m., Pacific Time, 7 days a week.
Please note that this Wii Shop Channel/Club Nintendo link is not created when you register your serial number using Club Nintendo's Product Registration program.
