Nintendo Switch Rewards finally announced


Meanwhile, the Nintendo U.K. website states that Nintendo Switch users can use Gold Points to partially pay for digital games, too, and use their current eShop balance to cover the rest.

Though the quality of the rewards available through My Nintendo isn't quite as good as what we could get through Club Nintendo, it's still been a fairly decent service. 1 Gold point is worth 1p in real money, and these are earned at 5% for eShop Switch, Wii U, 3DS purchases, as well as when redeeming digital codes for games online.

After months of speculation over their objective, Nintendo has finally unveiled their plans behind Nintendo Gold Points, the player rewards program that replaced Club Nintendo past year. The company announced in a blog post today that you'll soon be able to spend Gold Points - earned by purchasing Nintendo games - on Switch software in the eShop.

These gold points won't stick around forever though.

What do you think about the new addition to My Nintendo? For example, any Gold Points you earned in March 2017 will remain valid until the end of March 2018. But it's also frustrating in the extreme that during the first year of the Switch's life, when many folks were buying lots of Switch games, these rewards were not available even to be accumulated. Gold Points across all Nintendo platforms will be stored in your account up to a period of twelve months whereupon if still not used, will expire thereafter.
