My Nintendo Gold Points Can Be Used for Discounts On Switch Games
The long wait is over, we can finally use gold points on Nintendo Switch games. The rewards are not nearly as good as many would have hoped for. 100 Gold Points equals $1.00 off select Nintendo Switch purchases during checkout on the Nintendo eShop and official site:
Apply Gold Points to select Nintendo Switch purchases during checkout on Nintendo eShop or the official Nintendo website (where available)
To make matters worse, you get 5% more gold points from purchasing digital games, then you do physical. It would seem like Nintendo is trying to push everyone towards digital purchases. See below an example from Nintendo’s site as to how gold points work:
If you pay $79.99 for a game on Nintendo eShop, you’ll earn 400 Gold Points.
Those points can be redeemed for $4.00 toward your next eligible purchase.
Hopefully there is more to be made available at a later date. Waiting a whole year for a dollar off per 100 points is rather disappointing. Especially if you compare My Nintendo to Club Nintendo. Club Nintendo gave amazing rewards.
