Switch Rewards Coming to My Nintendo in Early March February 8, 2018

Posted by Maniac in Game News.

Got some highly-anticipated news for you all today. Nintendo’s digital rewards service, My Nintendo, provides Nintendo customers with point rewards ranging from purchasing games to completing tasks in Nintendo’s various smartphone titles. These points could be redeemed for rewards ranging from wallpapers, 3DS themes, Wii U DLC, or discounts on select 3DS or Wii U eShop titles. Rewards change frequently so it is a good idea to stay up to date with the latest offerings by visiting the website at least once a month.

However, while Nintendo Switch owners could earn points from their digital and retail purchases on the Switch, Nintendo does not currently offer any digital rewards for Switch owners. The Switch has been out for almost a year and has a larger install base than the Wii U, so many players have been asking Nintendo when they plan to offer rewards to Switch owners. Today, Nintendo finally revealed they will be offering rewards redeemable for Nintendo Switch content starting in early March!

Sadly, Nintendo has not yet revealed what rewards they will be offering for Switch owners, but they have several options. There are several digital titles on the Switch’s eShop they could offer. Also, it would be nice to see something like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild‘s Season Pass as a potential reward.

If you are a Switch owner and haven’t signed up for My Nintendo, you can do so here. You’ll just need to sign in with the Nintendo account you use on your Switch. If you’re a 3DS or Wii U owner its a good idea to link your Nintendo Network account, as that will add rewards made from future purchases on those consoles to your account balance.
