You Can Now Use My Nintendo Gold Points to Make eShop Purchases

However, for physical purchases, the points will be awarded at 1% of the Nintendo eShop price for the digital version of the game. Or $1 Dollars, or basically the equivalent of whatever $1 is in available regions. Going forward, however, My Nintendo members will receive five Gold points for every $1 spent when purchasing a game or DLC from the Eshop or Nintendo's website.

Gold points is basically a cashback incentive for when you purchase a game. You can apply points at the checkout screen on your Switch.

Nintendo, however, is claiming that early adopters of the console are not seeing playtime data from a year ago because it is "displaying incorrectly" for some users. And that subscriptions, passes, in-game items, virtual currency, or downloadable content on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS will not reward you with Gold Points.

Gold points are one of two point tiers that players can earn on My Nintendo, the other being Platinum. Furthermore, gold points will expire in one year, on the last day of the month in which they were earned.

To earn Gold Points, you'll need to buy a qualifying digital game for any game on Switch, Wii U, or 3DS or a physical game for the Switch. The points are awarded at a 5% rate and each point is worth one cent in US Dollars.
