Yeah, I found an article from October 2012 also showing the set timeframe.

@ Rol

It does include the 3DS, you can use the points to buy 3DS games....

On topic:

 I can only imagine that this either costs Nintendo a lot of money, or third parties a lot of money. Because someone is losing out somewhere in between. Either Nintendo has to pay them or they are told to just deal with it and take the hit. I am guessing the latter is what happens.

Yes, the Wii U and 3DS can be tied to the same NNID to have a shared wallet. However, games you buy on the 3DS do not count towards the current reward program.

This doesn't cost Nintendo a lot of money, rather it's beneficial for them. If it motivates people to spend $50 to get $5 back ($50 they would have not spent otherwise), then that's still a sizeable gain for Nintendo. Also, people who buy games from the eShop instead of retail are also beneficial to Nintendo, because the $5 payback per $50/60 game is lower than the cut retailers take from a boxed copy.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Oh well, certainly got my money's worth out of it (even though it was free anyway lol) if they do decide not to continue with it.

How do you share the wallet? I have both of mine on the same NNID but they still have their own wallets.

Maybe America handles things differently. Here in Europe it's an automatic thing.

I don't think I've bought a single thing on the Wii U eShop. Only games I've gotten were free from Club Nintendo. Probably should have utilized that more.

If you got a game from the MK8 promotion: they count like you bought them for the full price on the eShop.

What about the one I got for getting Platinum in Club Nintendo (NES Remix) or ones I redeemed for coins (Punch-Out)?

d21lewis said that the Platinum Club game worked. I don't have games from coins because they aren't available in Europe.

Sweet, I actually had enough points for one $5 gift card. I forgot I also bought that Mario Kart 8 DLC. Thanks for letting me know.

It is same for Americas. It was done automatically for me. Any money you put into wallet can be used on both 3DS and Wii U eshop as a joint pool.

Wtf, thats interesting! So after December 31st, we wont get the points anymore? Hmm, I wonder what they will do after? If anything?


I think they'll go for a more unified rewards system, basically integrate DDP with Club Nintendo

Club Nintendo is already headed to an all digtial rewards program anyway so I could totally see them merging the two programs together.

Ah, ok. I'll have to check next time I store money. I usually use CC directly to pay the exact price of game.
