Nintendo sending surprise gift cards to loyal Wii U owners

As I walked out to my snow-covered mailbox today, I was hardly expecting a gift from Santa Mario, but that’s exactly what happened. Featuring a note from Nintendo’s Reggie Fils-Aime, the company sent to me (and presumably its “biggest Wii U fans”) a gift card worth $40!

To Pizza Hut.

Though the nearest Hut is about 12-15 miles from my home and I would have totally chosen a stack of Hot ‘N Ready deep dish delights in its place, far be it from me to look a gift horse in the mouth. This is free pizza we’re talking about. And with Fils-Aime previously holding the position of Senior Director over at the Hut, I’m sure that link spilled over here some.

I wonder what this does to my Wii Fit U workouts. Like, will the game know if I chow down on a Bigfoot and try to run a half-marathon on Wuhu Island?

    I know One year they gave out Wii Party set with $25 dominos cards or something like that… I’m not even sure what they did last year.

    I’d be curious to see what their requirements for this one were, though. I’m a perpetual Platinum Club Nintendo member, with about 200-400 extra CN points tacked on by the year’s end… and this year I’ve linked two Wii-U units (Digital Deluxe Bundle w/ Nintendoland, Windwaker HD bundle)… but I suspect I’ll be jilted by them once again.

    There’s a Reggie in all of us.

    Huh…maybe I should stop ignoring Club Nintendo because I’ve been a massive Wii U supporter since Day 1.

    I have platinum status with over 1400 coins and ive spent clear over 1500 dollars this year…Easy on Wii U and 3ds. I didnt get squat. I wonder if its just a random lottery.
