From the official notice:

In order to focus on planning for a new customer loyalty program for our fans, we’ve decided to wind-down the Club Nintendo program. We are deeply thankful to our members for being a part of Club Nintendo for all of these years.

We will share details about our new program at a later date. For now, please see the schedule below for information on the discontinuation timeframe for Club Nintendo.


If you've been saving up your coins for a good reward, make sure you spend them before Club Nintendo is officially gone on July 1, 2015.  New items will be added to the rewards catalog in February, and members who reach elite status for the year will still be able to choose elite gifts in April.  Every member of Club Nintendo will receive a free download code for Flipnote Studio 3D in February.

About a week ago, Meszaros was found unresponsive in his apartment in Los Angeles. Meszaros stood at a famously (dubbed 'smallest man in the world') petite 2 feet 9 inches tall, and he was discovered performing in a traveling circus before making his debut on television as Alf the alien in a famous '80s sitcom.



He put on performances for some of the world's most widely recognized and hailed figures such as Michael Jackson (who went on to become a dear friend), Jimmy Carter, and Ronald Reagan. 

In the 1980's the city of Hawthorne, California named their shortest street 'Michu Lane' in commemoration of the performer. Rest in peace Michu Meszaros, you'll be missed. And now, a nice compilation of some of Alf's greatest moments:

On Sunday morning Anton Yelchin's Jeep rolled down his driveway, pinning then crushing him against a brick post outside of his house in Los Angeles, California. It just so happens the car that caused this horrific fatality was a 2015 Grand Cherokee, and among over one million more cars/SUVs filed for recall by Fiat Chrysler. 

More than 100 crashes have been reported to date, due to gear selector problems that can confuse drivers about whether their cars are in park or not.
