    I'm going to try myself... as soon as my friend comes back online :p

    But yeah, doesn't look like you can gift yourself the game. Not a big deal though, you could always just make up a new account.

    I took a quick look through the T&Cs and I don't think it specifically says two Club Nintendo accounts but it's pretty heavily implied due to the whole "friend" thing. You may want to take a look through the banners on the main/My Account page, but yeah it's likely you can't get a free code yourself. Lame!

    Right, seeing as I sort of ballsed up the registration bit, I can't offer a download code but I can offer a recommendation code so first come first served.

    You will need to register a 3DS to be able to use this code:

    Recommendation Code: 1YEKHtqap9nRsovGPkui7EUF

    4. Both participants must be members of Club Nintendo. Club Nintendo Terms and Conditions apply. For the use of Nintendo eShop the acceptance of the Nintendo 3DS Service User Agreement and Privacy Policy is required.

    Trust me, I just registered a brand new 3DSXL on my account and it didn't let me use that code anywhere.

    Has anyone been able to generate a recommendation code from a freebie copy of MH, assuming gained in the 4 for 3 promo, yet?

    Yeah, I did the promo before, registered 3 games and now this also worked.

    So it works.

    Yeah it looks like pretty much every loophole works, sans gifting yourself MH3 from the same account.

    And has anyone tried seeing if the gifted copy can get you a recommend code too?

    Binky, do you mind if I claim this for Murbal (if no-one else has used it already)?

    Otherwise he's going to have to wait for me to get my 3DS XL next week, with the risk I might not be able to generate a code for him.

    If I can, I'll offer it on here instead.

    On the banner it should say "claim" or something.

    My Account section, check the banner at the top. You can scroll it to the right if it's not there immediately (mine had my So Many Games promo code until I scrolled it).

    @thegofp So this still shows both codes? The Monster Hunter one AND the So Many Games one, right?

    Just wanna make sure so I know where to find it when Animal Crossing's code comes. If you can, can you send screenshots?

    By the way, where do you insert the recommend code? I can't find any form.

    From what I can make out, it sounds like you will get a chance to enter the rec code whilst registering the 3DS/XL.

    That's my My Account page as it currently stands. Sans the codes.

    You can register your 3DS/XL now and do the recommendation code later, according to the promo website. It'll probably be a clickable banner in the My Account section. Everything's nestled in there somewhere.

    @thegofp Ah yes, found it thanks, Ive got a recommendation code, Ive promised it to Angry man dan.


    I would get whoever you give it to to link your club nintendo account (second one or first if you havent already done the 'so many games' promotion) in case it gives you it towards a free game, I only need one more code so I'm hoping this will register and I'll get my third free game!!

    Yeah, found it. As usual, it's not very immediate... same thing with the Layton download last year.

    Anyone worked out where you put the recommendation code yet to claim the free game?

    Murbal's not sure if it's worked for him, or not. Account page banner is still prompting him to take part, but when he enters the code it's saying "already taken part"; not sure if it's just the site being slow to recognise everything, or if someone might have used Binky's code already.

    Sounds like somebody nabbed it already? Did it not work once?

    Unfortunately, if it literally is saying "already taken part", it's stupidly vague message. Doesn't tell you if you've already successfully registered, or if someone else used it.

    Malek, judging by your posts you've managed to do this promo successfully? What did you get? An "already taken part" message?

    Registering Club Nintendo codes can be a massive pain, as if there's an issue they give you a generic "This code is expired" message. Turns out the code isn't expired, it's just for another region...

    Sorry, haven't managed to yet. I've only registered the console. My friend hasn't come back online yet (he's probably still at university or something), so I don't have the code. I'll tell you what happens once he gets me the code.
