As Nintendo announced, the gold points earned via MyNintendo can be used on another platform in the future. We are talking about Switch, which will be supported from March.
Through the MyNintendo offering, Nintendo offers customers the opportunity to earn so-called Gold Points when purchasing retail or eShop software.
A gold point corresponds to the value of one cent. As Nintendo announced, the gold points can be redeemed on another system in the future. We are talking about Switch, which will be supported from next month. Thus, it took almost a year before Switch was also provided with the full support of MyNintendo.
MyNintendo: Gold point payout is increased
In addition, Nintendo announced that will be distributed via MyNintendo in future more gold points than before. When you purchase retail software, you will continue to receive one-percent worth of gold on the eShop price of this game. On the other hand, if you acquire this in the eShop you will receive gold points worth five percent of the eShop price.
For example, if a title in the eShop costs $ 50, you will receive 250 gold points when you buy it. These in turn are worth 2.50 dollars and can be redeemed in the form of a discount on the next purchase in eShop. It should be noted that gold points are only valid for a period of twelve months and always expire at the end of each month.
