Its not bad, I will say this.Outside of the physical part.1%, really?Ugh

But if I got to be honest, I prefer when they gave games for free(or exchanged them for the coins).The rewards were bettter in general.But if they manage to maintain this system, plus give rewards as a side bonus, then Im good.

I prefer this system much better, i like that i can pick whatever games i want to apply the discount to instead of random games or items that i didnt care about.

With that said, i do feel like they could be a bit more generous. 1% for physical & 5% for digital is a bit low, 5 & 10 would be ideal.

All you need is a My Nintendo account to be eligible for the cashback program. I don't know of other companies who offer higher cashback rates.

This transitional period is of course going to be rough for many people. I said as much in the previous thread about this topic. My 240 gold coins have a value of ~€24 if traded in for Wii U or 3DS offers, but on Switch the value of them decreases to €2.40.



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

It's nice, but it's not perfect. I'm waiting for that MyNintendo scheduled maintenance this month. They may finally bring Switch rewards, who knows.

They actually removed that part that said Switch rewards coming soon on the MyNintendo site

You're right, it's nowhere to be seen. They better bring it back with some good deals, the current money to coins ratio is horrible. 2,50€ for each 50€ spent... Digital sure is the future.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

I wish my review copies of games counted towards my gold points :(

When they stopped shipping actual physical things like Game and Watch and GBA SPs, it was over for me. I use to enjoy typing in my code and then saving up for some really nice stuff that actually exists in the real world.

Im the exact opposite, i never cared about any of the little collectibles they gave out so this setup is alot better for me personally.

Well, Switch is highly successful now, so I doubt they are worried about people feelings about this reward system.It will probably get better over time, but that may take years.



My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

I think what sucks is that they've seemed to increase the points you get from a digital purchase. So, it was maybe like 60 gold points for Zelda early on and now you get like 300 points or 3 bucks just for buying Zelda or Mario Odyssey. So if you had bought digital, even 3 games, you'd have 9 bucks. I hope they retroactively give consumers the points they deserve...at least for Nintendo content. But I highly doubt they will.

Hard to believe that as a gamer, you wouldn't have been interested in actual, limited edition game systems.

Nintendo has fumbled basic things with Switch so far, its depressing
