MyNintendo Switch Rewards available

The system has been out a year and now we can FINALLY use MyNintendo points for Nintendo Switch rewards! All the early adopters out there will see their gold points expiring at the end of this month so we can nab some rewards in the nick of time.

For those who haven't linked your devices since before 2016, MyNintendo is the company's replacement to the old "Club Nintendo" rewards program.

Your gold points seem easy to apply as a discount to any purchase in the eShop although Nintendo's fine print says certain selections will not work for all titles.

From here on out, digital purchases will net you 5% back through gold point rewards while physical game purchases will yield 1% in gold points.

It should be noted that Switch purchases are now worth much more in points than those of the past year. Here's a reminder of some of the points we used to net.

While I'm all for the new amount, it does seem very un-nintendo to slight it's early adopters. As there is a new points structure, it's odd Nintendo doesn't adjust member's points wallet for those purchases bought in the last year.

Thoughts?

That is disappointing...as is even putting on expiration dates to points while it took so long to see Switch rewards show up. On the bright side, I do like getting a kickback from purchases, even purchases that were partially paid for by gold coins.

Really hoping Nintendo reconsiders. Not sure what else to do to try and sway them.

I'm super pleased that Nintendo has brought this into the fold. I love the fact that they are giving back to gamers. I've only had my Switch since the end of December, so I am not being hard done by with the expiry date, but I think this is something special from Nintendo that they really didn't have to bring out.
