Use your Gold Points and save on your next Nintendo eShop purchase!

Did you know that you can use your Gold Points to get a discount on your next Nintendo eShop purchase?

You gain Gold Points whenever you buy a new Nintendo Switch title, whether it is a retail or downloadable version!

If you purchase the downloadable version of a game, your Gold Points will be added to your Nintendo Account automatically. If you buy the retail version instead, you can easily collect your Gold Points by taking the following steps:

  • Highlight the game icon on your console's HOME Menu and press the + Button
  • Select “My Nintendo Rewards Programme”
  • Select “Earn Points (game card version only)”

And that’s all: your Gold Points are now ready to be used!

Next time you make a Nintendo eShop purchase, you just have to select the amount of points you want to use on the payment screen: the more you use, the bigger the discount. No need to reach a minimum threshold of Gold Points in order to use them: you can take advantage of the discount at any time and with any amount!

And in case you're wondering: yes, you can also use your Gold Points to buy a Nintendo Switch Online membership at a discounted price!

Visit Nintendo eShop and start saving on your next purchase! Should you see an upcoming game that you'd like to put your Gold Points towards, don't forget to add it to your Wish List to receive updates like when it releases or when it goes on sale!
