A golden opportunity to put those gold coins into use.
Nintendo has announced a new system for My Nintendo this morning. Starting ‘early March’ you’ll be able to cash in your My Nintendo Gold Coins for games and DLC found on the Switch eShop.
Also announced was the new way Gold coins would be awarded once the update goes live in early March. Digital games will give you 5% while physical cartridges will get you 1% back in gold coins.
My Nintendo members already earn Gold Points by buying qualifying games. Soon they’ll be able to redeem Gold Points for eligible digital games and content for the Nintendo Switch™ system, too.
Here’s how it will work:
• Buy a qualifying digital game for Nintendo Switch, Wii U™, or Nintendo 3DS™ family systems or a physical game for the Nintendo Switch system.
• Earn Gold Points worth 5% of the amount you pay, not including any points or discounts used*.
• You can then redeem those points on your next eligible digital purchase (including games and DLC) for the Nintendo Switch system from Nintendo eShop or Nintendo.com.
Of course, you can also continue to redeem your points for existing My Nintendo rewards for Wii U or Nintendo 3DS systems.
Stay tuned for more details!
