You can register for the North American Club Nintendo and earn rewards for your Nintendo console and game purchases, but the club does not offer Wii Points as a reward. You have to go overseas.
In the European Club Nintendo you can earn a set number of “stars” for every purchase you make. You can then trade in your stars for prizes such as Nintendo-themed clothing, ringtones or even Wii Points. Wii Points can be used to purchase downloadable games on the Wii Shop Channel.
