After six years, Nintendo has announced the end of its customer-loyalty program, Club Nintendo.

The service, in which players could register Nintendo games and hardware for coins that could be redeemed for collectible Nintendo items and software, will remain active through June 2015. Players can still earn coins throughout March and redeem them until the end of June.

Nintendo of America also announced that a new loyalty program will be revealed in the future, though no specifics of how it will operate were given.

But don’t spend those virtual coins just yet—Nintendo will be adding a new series of physical rewards in addition to a line of downloadable games in February. All Club Nintendo members will also receive Flipnote Studio 3D, a piece of software that allows users to create their own flipbook-style animations, for free beginning next month.

The announcement comes just after Nintendo revealed that the New 3DS XL will be coming to North America next month, along with a few big games for the handheld, which will give players who pick up those new titles plenty of time to register them with the program.
