Soon, Switch Owners Can Pay With Gold Points

The program's latest update will reward Nintendo loyalists with discounted games, and considering the wide range of digital titles released on the eShop recently, Gold Points should come as a boon to any thrifty gamers looking to expand their on-system library. Each Gold Point equals 1 penny, so you would need 100 Gold Points to take 1£ off the price of a game.

My Nintendo also offers Platinum Points, which can be earned and spent within games on in-game items and rewards.

Regular digital buyers are about to get a boost from My Nintendo. Purchasing digital titles or redeeming download codes will reimburse 5% in gold points while registering a game in physical format will only give 1% of the purchase. Anyone who purchased Breath of the Wild through the eShop back in March should stay tuned for this feature being used, as you may lose your Points before this is supposed to roll out. "We are impressed with the growth, we're impressed with the units that have been sold into the market so far, so we're very sanguine at this point, but we've nothing more to announce specifically at this point". The established real-world value of one coin is, apparently, one cent.

Of course, you can also continue to redeem your points for existing My Nintendo rewards for Wii U or Nintendo 3DS systems. Those points are equivalent to $2.50; should you cash in on them, you'd get a cool $2.50 off your next eShop purchase.

Once earned, Gold Points remain valid until the last day of the month in the following calendar year. "For example, any Gold Points you earned in March 2017 will remain valid until the end of March 2018".
