Now available: Use Gold Points on digital games for the Nintendo Switch system

My Nintendo members can now redeem Gold Points for digital games and DLC for the Nintendo Switch™ system. It’s as easy as applying your points during the checkout process, whether you buy on the Nintendo website or Nintendo eShop on the system.

Ready to earn and redeem your Gold Points? Here’s how:

  • 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 based on the amount you pay (excluding any points or discounts used).
    * 5% for eligible digital purchases on Nintendo.com or Nintendo eShop (Nintendo Switch, Nintendo 3DS, Wii U)
    * 1% of the Nintendo eShop price for physical purchases (Nintendo Switch)
    • Redeem those points on your next eligible digital purchase (including games and DLC) for the Nintendo Switch system. Just look for the option to apply your points during checkout.

    That means that if you buy a $59.99 game on Nintendo eShop, you’ll earn 300 Gold Points. Those points can then be redeemed for $3 toward your next purchase…which will earn more Gold Points, according to the amount you paid (excluding any points or discounts used)!

    For more details, check out the new page about Gold Points.
