I bought "The Legend of Dark Witch 2" and got nothing.  I did get the "Sign in to Nintendo eShop (weekly)" bonus so my accounts are linked, and the purchase did show up in my "my Nintendo" account under receipts.

 

Maybe the glitch just works on the Sega 3D Classics, I can't try since I already own them.

 

EDIT:  Welp, refreshing didn't work, but going to the main My Nintendo page shows I got 10 stars, must be discounted stuff that use to be $5+.

The tier is specifically $5 to $9.99. $4.99 doesn't count. I upgraded a couple of SNES and N64 I hadn't paid for yet on Wii U and got points for them quickly.

I don't know that the way it awards coins is necessarily a glitch, it could just be that the coin amounts are tied to the specific game and ignore sales. That's how Club Nintendo coins worked. Like for example getting a free copy of Pikmin 3 with Mario Kart 8 and turning that free copy into 60 coins.

I suppose this is what I get for making all those eShop purchases last week. I might try emailing customer support and seeing if I can get coins for those purchases, since they were technically after I linked my NNID to my (pre-created) My Nintendo account. Worst case scenario, I'm out 30 coins.

If you don't want Star Fox Guard, you can pre-order the digital version of Star Fox Zero by itself for $49.99 with an option of getting Star Fox Guard for $9.99 later on as a special discount. If you somehow don't want Star Fox Zero and just want Star Fox Guard, you can get that as a standalone for $14.99 with the option of getting Star Fox Zero later on for $44.99 as a special discount.

Has anyone redeemed WarioWare: Touched? And if so, does doing so award some Gold Coins, in the style of beautiful Club Nintendo reward-chaining?

Miitomo won't work for me. Whenever it tries to download the data, it always hangs at 100%. And if the app ever loses focus it starts all over.

1. What if you buy Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader, regular price of 29.99, on sale for $4.99. Will you get 30 coins?
2. Everyone only got 200 pre-regristration coins for miitomo right? I thought we were supposed to also get extra points for linking NNID with my nintendo before launch, but I guess not?
3. Anything stopping us from creating multiple accounts for easy platinum points? But then again according to my calculation we can get 365 coins per week, so maybe we can get everything with just one account? Besides the discounts.
Cause if you're not cheap, you're not trying!

I'm going to have a tough time earning gold. I've only got one or two virtual console upgrades left and the only DLC I want is Hyrule Warriors.

Apparently Nintendo is emailing out codes with 200 platinum points to email addresses attached to old club nintendo accounts. I haven't a code yet though.

No problems here.

 

Managed to get 1000 Platinum Points and redeemed them for the Picross game.

Well I'm not sitting in a store all day and I'm not going to try again on my data. I'll try again tomorrow at work (on their shitty 3MB/min speed).

I couldn't get Miitomo to work on my phone because it is rooted. I got the app running on my PC however. If anyone else is interested, I got the instructions here. https://www.reddit.c...o_on_pc/d1l3ue0

 

 

LoZ Picross is alright, but there is an annoying mandatory tutorial section.

They have said that they're working on retail purchases. They'll be growing the service as time goes on.

 

Club Nintendo had almost nothing of note as a reward for the vast majority of its last few years outside of the year-end rewards and the burst of offerings leading up to the shut down. The few good things outside of that were very limited items.

That sounds like one of those generic answers they give because they're constantly asked about it though. I could easily see them stick to digital only just like the email says "Earn points for interacting with Nintendo apps and services and digital game purchases".

Oh it's just a new thread, not a new sale.

Personally, I iiked the seperated threads for 3DS and WiiU, as I never play my WiiU. But maybe I'm in the minority of people who prefer separate threads.

It downloads for me, but crashes as soon as I try to start it.  I'll try deleting it and redownloading tomorrow.

Now that we have a combined eShop thread, I've come to a realization.

Not having to wade through conversation about a system you don't own is nice.

You couldn't help noting with every breath that thousands of other people were very close to you and nearly all of them had armpits.

When I redeemed my code for the Picross game I didn't get any coins.

And I'm screwed again. I had to use a different email, because My Nintendo wouldn't work with Yahoo mail.

No, there's no price attached to it otherwise that would allow it to qualify for one of the Gold Point tiers.

How exactly did My Nintendo not let you use Yahoo email? I linked and sign in with my NNID, which uses a Yahoo email account. I do receive emails from Nintendo, but have yet to get an email for 200 points for linking my account.

Yeah, being able to get points to use for some things without spending money is nice.

I had that before. It was called get the codes from titles at the used video game stores!
