Forums - Nintendo Discussion - My Nintendo Gold Points Switch

So maybe I'm just dumb and can't figure it out, but do digital purchases count retroactively towards points, or is it basically anything from this point forward?

Also how do I get points for physical games? The My Nintendo site isn't really clear...though again maybe I'm just missing something.

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.

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

A reward system for a console is hardly a notable aspect of it.I mean, just look at Sony reward program and it is, in my opinion, far worse.

As i said, its not as bad as it seems to be.But yeah, it could have been a bigger win with the hardcore audience.

It seems to be only from thsi point foward unfortunelly, otherwise I would have gained alot of gold coins by now.

For the physical side, my guess is that once the game has been detected on your Switch, since an account is mandatory to be tied to a Switch/profile for internet use, once you access the internet with your Switch, it gets automatically detected and thus gives you the gold coins.

Dang DX That stinks.

I didn't realize the system was on the Switch itself, so I get what I was missing now. Was looking for a place to enter a code on the website like Club Nintendo had. Probably will only get a few points but wanted to see anyway.

Yeah, kind of miss that system too.There was something rather exciting on putting in the code and see the number of your gold coins grow.

you have to go to your game library, press + on the game and then go to ''my nintendo rewards'' and then click register the game cart

I forgot to register my games on mynintendo but I just did it now. I got like $4. I have like 13 games. Well, I am definitely not going to buy full-sized games like this. Maybe I will buy a season pass. No, let me correct that. Let me use a discount to buy a season pass. -_-

Nintendo really doesn't want us to go full physical don't they?

Switch is 9th generation. Everyone else is playing on last gen systems!

Oh yeah, I've heard about this some time ago, but I don't really pay attention to My Nintendo. It hasn't be very good since it launched. I miss Club Nintendo...
