My Nintendo Gold Points can now be used for digital purchases on Nintendo Switch!

You can spend your Gold Points on Nintendo eShop when you purchase games or other content for Nintendo Switch.

Updated: March 6th, 2018

Since the launch of My Nintendo in 2016, Nintendo fans have benefitted from a range of rewards, including in-app items, exclusive discounts and more. An update to the service launched on March 6th, 2018, and will reward Nintendo Switch players in a new way.

From today, you can spend any Gold Points you’ve accumulated in My Nintendo when purchasing Nintendo Switch software from Nintendo eShop on your device.

You can pay for the remaining balance with Nintendo eShop funds, or any other payment method available in Nintendo eShop.

Once earned, Gold Points remain valid for 12 months from when they are earned, and always expire at the end of a month. For example, any Gold Points you earned in March 2017 will remain valid until the end of March 2018.
