    My Nintendo (The new Club Nintendo)

    My Nintendo has been released world wide today.
    https://my.nintendo.com/

    Looks like there are two different currencies/points.
    This page would explain it better than I could.

    I don't like the digital only approach either, I very much prefer having a physical version of the game. This, coupled with the fact that I don't even have Miitomo, means I won't get much out of this. Besides the weekly "sign in to Miiverse/eshop" there isn't anything else.

    As it is right now, My Nintendo is pretty useless to me, especially when compared to the old Club Nintendo.

    Fortunately it's not digital only.
    Points earned for purchasing games from Nintendo eShop on the Nintendo 3DS system or Wii U console, or from the official Nintendo website.
    Though... I guess this means I can't order a game from Amazon and also get the points?

    You are aware that the Nintendo store is digital only, too, right?

    A Nintendo Account with a linked Nintendo Network ID is required to purchase games through www.nintendo.com. To purchase a game, complete the following steps:

    If you haven't already done so, create a Nintendo Network ID on your Wii U or Nintendo 3DS family system.
    1. Visit http://accounts.nintendo.com and create or sign in to your Nintendo Account.
    2. Link your Nintendo Network ID to your Nintendo Account.
    3. Locate your game on www.nintendo.com and follow the on-screen steps to make your purchase.
    4. Your game will be automatically downloaded to the system associated with your Nintendo Network ID.
    All "Buy Physical" does on a store page is showing you a list of retailers. Not to mention, not every country even has a store. In fact, I think when it comes to the EU, the UK is the only one who actually has one. But yes, it is digital only.

    Re: My Nintendo (The new Club Nintendo)

    Ah, I stand corrected.
    I always used Nintendo's refurbished store when buying from them directly,
    and well, the option for redeeming point codes kinda lead me to think physical games having codes. XD
    ...
    That's unfortunate...

    Club Nintendo sent physical games? I only remember getting downloads in terms of games.

    Oh, I see where you got that.
    We are actually referring to getting points from buying a physical game, not spending points for one.

    Ohh, well shoot. Guess that's what happens when you try to read stuff when you're sick.

    Yeah, that's kinda weird. Hopefully they start putting Club Nintendo-esque papers in the game cases then. Or at the very least, little codes on receipts.

    It's annoying that the points are only for digital games, but on the bright side they count any digital purchase. I bought Chronicles of Teddy and got a cool 20 gold points, woo. It helps that half the games worth playing on WiiU are eshop-only, anyway.

    Having taken a look at the rewards, every single one is for digital goods, be it a game, a 3DS theme, or miitomo currency. So either buy digital and get more of the same digital goods as rewards or buy physical and consider the case and disc your physical reward.

    I think what it means is getting download codes from stores like Gamestop, which allows you to buy some digital games...
    Apparently, Seviper evolves into Arbok, and WATER TYPES are weak against FIRE TYPES! (Guess that means I can't have Fennekin as a partner...)

    DAMMIT, 4KIDS, YOU HAD ONE JOB!

    I'll take all the chances I can get to make "subtle" jabs against Ash Ketch Jack S***!

    Oh, I didn't notice that WarioWare: Touched! is actually going for plat coins. (I mean it's in between gold prizes and all. XD)
    And it's for 3DS, despite it not being available in the 3DS eshop. (Looks like I know what I am going to be saving for. XD)

    By the way, if anyone is looking for an extra 10 points, on the my.nintendo page there is a block one can click on.
