Nintendo has announced this morning that from early March they will be allowing players to use Club Nintendo Gold Points as a payment method in the Nintendo eShop.

Much like a store Reward Card, Gold Points are accrued by making purchases, either physical or digital, for your Nintendo Console.

Downloads: 5%

Nintendo Switch games and DLC on Nintendo eShop:
5% of the total paid amount

Nintendo 3DS games and Wii U games on Nintendo eShop:
5% of the total paid amount

Download codes:
5% of the undiscounted Nintendo eShop price of the same content

Game Cards: 1%

Nintendo Switch game:
1% of the undiscounted Nintendo eShop price of that game

Gold Point = 1p (GBP)

With the ratio of 1 Point -> 1p (GBP), a £40 digital title will net you about £2 to spend back on the eShop, though those who purchase primarily physical releases will not be as lucky, only reciving the equivalent of about 40p.

With a shelf life of a year, launch day Switch customers have been eagerly awaiting for a way to spend their points before the expire in Mid-March, with all other rewards limited to 3DS and WII U. This will at least give them some solace that they'l be able to recieve something for their points.

What are you going to spend your hard earned gold points on? Join the conversation online and let us know!
