Am I crazy? I see Bonsai Barber was 150 points in July 2012. I guess Nintendo eshop games go UP in value over time. I guess it's weird how XBLA and PSN traditionally reduce the price of digital games over the years.
In the past year / year and a half Nintendo has been raising the price of everything. I believe it all started with the Pikmin 3 tote, which is practical the same as the 250 coin mushroom tote, but now costs 400. The most alarming change was probably the 3DS game case (same 250 to 400 upgrade), since it's one of the simpler / cheaper to make items on Club Nintendo.
It makes sense that Nintendo needs to raise the price, since 250 coins was a lot more 2 - 3 years ago, but with so few options I can understand disliking it.
They've been raising the prices on nearly everything. I'm actually shocked the little basket is only 700 and not 1000 since it was 700 last time.
I was shocked it was 700 in the first place. When I first saw it relisted I said to myself "no way that was originally 700 coins". Certainly makes me wonder if I should spend some of my coins now, since I have 600 or so expiring this year.
