Switch games can soon be bought with My Nintendo coins

Gold MyNintendo Points Will Soon Be Redeemable On The Nintendo Switch eShop But It Feels Kind Of Pointless

If you've been buying digital games on your 3DS, Wii U, or Switch since My Nintendo's rewards program went live, chances are you have some gold points saved up if you haven't been trading them in for discounts.

Take-Two Interactive has shared that they are "impressed" at the unrelenting sales momentum behind Nintendo Switch at the moment, although wouldn't be pushed for hints as to whether they have any more games that are destined for the plucky portable home console. So, spend £40 and you'll get 200 Gold Points, which are then worth £2 off your next purchase.

Members now receive gold points by purchasing Nintendo games either from eShop and brick-and-mortar retailers. You could not earn rewards for purchases or activity, nor could you exchange existing points for anything at all. The ability to use gold points to buy your games will be limited to Switch games, at least for now, but you'll finally have a use for any points you may have sitting around in your My Nintendo collection.

With a bit more elaboration, here's how new Nintendo rewards will function. This is not a discount because that 5% comes in the form of digital currency, Gold Coins (or Gold Points). While this seems to be the direction of speculation, Nintendo hasn't definitively set the value of a single Gold Coin.

The Gold Points that you earn will only remain valid until the end of the following calendar year. The catch, however, is gold points are going to expire after 12 months, so use them or lose them. But they'll soon have an actual cash equivalent, which means that My Nintendo power-users may be able to use their hefty stock of points to buy new games from the eShop at no added cost.
