Well, looks like Nintendo turned on the switch to allow My Nintendo gold points to be used for buying Switch games.  1 Gold point = $0.01.  The better news is that digital purchases on Switch, Wii U, and 3DS, earn 5% back in gold points now, and registering Switch physical games earn 1% back in gold points.  Both the 5% and 1% is more gold points than what was given before this change.  Looks like you're better off redeeming your gold points for 15-50% discounts on My Nintendo though, rather than use them for the money exchange program.

Fine print:


  • Gold Points expire after 12 months on the last day of the month in which they were earned.

  • When purchasing retail package versions of Nintendo Switch software, points will be awarded when the software is registered via the HOME Menu on Nintendo Switch.
  • Purchases of Nintendo 3DS or Wii U DLC do not qualify to earn Gold Points. Additionally, subscriptions, passes, in-game items, or virtual currency do not qualify to earn Gold Points.
  • When redeeming a download code, Gold Points will be issued automatically.
  • Gold Points for physical Nintendo Switch software can only be claimed within one year of the game's original release date for countries in the North American and Australian regions, and within two years for the European region.
  • Gold Points can be used toward eligible digital game and DLC purchases for the Nintendo Switch system, excluding passes, automatic renewals, in-game items, and virtual currency.

I registered Zelda the other day due to the release date stipulation on registering physical games, but I'm glad I held off on my other games. It's nice to have this option rather than the scant rewards they've recently had.

5% back on digital purchases is awesome. Still a bit bummed about the entire past year's worth of purchases though. Oh well. I'm glad they rolled this out, and that you can use it on any game at any increment. Ya did alright, Nintendo.

Never touched Mutant Mudds on my Wii U, but now that it's on sale for Switch and my rewards pretty much cover the cost... it's basically free, right? That's how that works?

So would I, but getting physical edition. Thought I'd mention in case you didn't know it's getting one.


Thanks. I'm all digital all the time. Just used some gold coins to pay for the game on the eShop. Pretty cool.

As a note on the 5% gold points you get for each purchase, you get a prorated amount of points for items on sale and for whatever you might pay after using gold points to discount the price further.

Awesome! Thanks for posting. Just bought some games and redeemed some carts I was waiting on and have over 1000 gold coins now.

Now I just hope they fix my play activity...

I have joined the Switch family with Mario Odyssey and Breath of the Wild. Not sure what else to get yet. Enjoyed the demo for Kirby.

I'd recommend Mario + Rabbids. Just beat it last night, out over 20 hours in it. The game shouldn't be as good as it is. I know nothing about rabbids but the game was charming and there's a ton of secrets and the gameplay is pretty great.

I guess the new rewards program is better?
Trying to see what is eligible to redeem on the switch. I haven't found anything yet.

Not sure if I'm misunderstanding you here, but everything is eligible. If you go to purchase something or click to see your eshop balance, there will be an additional reward balance you can use on games. (Assuming your My Nintendo account is linked.)

I'd highly recommend Golf Story. It's a goofy golf RPG and I am not a fan of golf, but can confirm it is a fantastic game to play!

Nintendo is so shady sometimes. I bought digital Bayonetta 2 on 3/2, where I also visited eShop & there were no specifics about gold points changes. Now on 3/6, I could have gotten 250 gold coins instead of 50. I know it's only $2, but I haven't touched the game so I surely would have waited. Anyone know how to contact them? I only see FAQs on my Nintendo, so they probably dont want folks contacting them over rewards, etc. 2$ makes a big difference when you're broke.

Edit: was adding 2 to clarify it was Bayonetta 2 I bought

$2 makes no difference to you. It sucks in principle but it’s just 2 freaking dollars.

You're definitely out of luck. If you checked the My Nintendo page, they said they were rolling this out in early March. Sorry dude.

Are PSN flash sales where a game you just bought for $30 goes on sale for $12 also shady? Lol

Yeah, the first rule of "deals", is you win some, you lose some. If people can't accept those facts, don't bother getting in the game. LOL

They did not say they were changing the value you get from gold points to 1 cent = 1 gold point. Truth matters.

Not regarding a deal, an exponential change in amount of rewards given for a full priced digital purchase. All that was said is you csn use gold coins towards future purchases. That was great. Not that they are changing the value of gold coins, because even if that was hinted at, I would have waited. I could criticize & justify every complaint that every person on these forums makes. I didn't think that was the purpose of these forums, but I guess I'll start playing along.

They actually did say they were changing the value of gold coins on the Japanese and Euro eshop and my Nintendo. If you had read that last month it sounded totally like it was going to be the same on the US Eshop and My Nintendo.

The true reward from buying Nintendo games is you get to play Nintendo games.

I'm just happy I grabbed the gold coins from all the physical Switch games I flipped. At 1600 coins right now.

They did say they were changing the value of gold points, so waiting to make purchases would've been the smart move.
