Since many people have been purchasing FFXIII recently, I thought I would share this in case anyone hasn’t heard about it.
Square Enix has a members reward program where buying their games nets you points which in turn increases your membership “tier”. Gamers located in North America can sign up here.
Games like FFXIII and Star Ocean: The Last Hope, which are published by Square Enix, should contain a registration card with a serial number in it. You simply login to your members account and add the game to your “Collection” by entering the code.
Your tier level resets every year, and the date for the next reset is March 31st, 2010. The rewards program sends out free goodies after each reset.
Bronze tier members will receive a postcard set featuring Final Fantasy XIII, Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, and Star Ocean The Last Hope International artwork. Silver tier members will get a desktop calendar with artwork from Final Fantasy XIV, Front Mission Evolved, and other games. Gold tier members will get a music compilation on CD while Ultimate tier members will get an 8GB iPod Touch.
So if you have bought Square Enix games recently, it doesn’t hurt at all to sign up and register them. Plus, there’s usually a sweepstakes going on that you can enter. The current one is for a FFXIII Xbox 360 bundle.
So far it seems like one game will net you enough points for Bronze while two games is enough for Silver.
