Nintendo finally allows use of My Nintendo Gold Points to buy games

Rejoice! Nintendo Says Mario Is A Plumber Again

The Switch keeps track of how many hours you've spent playing a game.

According to the Nintendo website, gold points can be redeemed during a purchase checkout. Don't get too excited though, as the conversion is extremely low - as in, one point equals one cent. The company will now allow consumers who purchase digital games and DLC for the Switch an opportunity to redeem their gold points on their My Nintendo accounts toward the cost of their items. When making purchases on the eShop, players will be awarded five percent back on eligible purchases in the form of gold points.

THE NINTENDO SWITCH is suffering from a bug that has seen users' play data reset to zero.

China's aluminium exports rise, steel down as Trump prepares tariffs
It's not just in the stock market floor where Trump's policies are causing chaos, as it's also been felt in his own White House. Last month, India's Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale quietly visited Beijing and met Wang and China's top diplomat Yang Jiechi.

To break it all down, let's say players buy one game at a full retail price of $59.99 on the Nintendo eShop. In August past year a battery indicator problem took hours to fix, now the Switch has started forgetting how long you've played each game. You can also earn points for purchasing physical Switch games, although the amount you receive will be considerably less than for digital purchases.

My Nintendo Gold Points expire after 12 months on the last day of the month in which they were earned.

Existing gold coin balances will remain the same, and physical games can still only be registered once.
