Nintendo have now launched the MyNintendoStore. This is the first time since the old store closed many years ago…
This means you can now use those coins you’ve been building up for physical rewards. Currently, there are only 4, and I suspect not everyone will like them. However, it is free if you have those Platinum coins sitting around, so you can go ahead and grab some if it floats your boat 🙂
500 coins – Nintendo Switch Game Case
500 coins – Legend of Zelda Smartphone Ring
300 coins – Yoshi Canvas Pouch
300 coins – Yoshi Pen Set
Also check out the cheap price on the NES controllers
Note: I posted these as separate deals as one costs money, the other costs Platinum Coins, it didn’t seem right to combine them together, and if nothing else would have made for a gross, uninformative title.

I got to 9,999+ points at one point, RIP Miitomo and Pokemon Rumble Rush
Also dumb Mario Kart Tour never got points/rewards.
Same here. I had a bunch of coin, but nothing to spend them on. Eventually they all expired after six months.
oh yes, mine were all spent on Pokemon Rumble rush haha
Thanks! But not sure why, it seems only “Regular Platinum Points” (non-mobile games) can be used in My Nintendo Store at the moment.
Currently My Nintendo showing I have 400+ points in total, but in their store it only shows 150 points even after I refresh the page multiple times.
I just did the Animal Crossing Mission an hour ago, and used it to claim prizes.
Worked for me, maybe you are signed into a different account on the my nintendo store
Signed out from My Nintendo and cleared my browser’s data, signed in again, showing all my points now.
Thanks for help @RichardL and @feroleo
Post is $7.95, free if the order is over $80, max 3 rewards items per order.
Yep, best to earn enough points to get 3 items delivered at the same time.
Yeah.. Sure.. Looking at how to earn them, I’m not going to play their mobile games enough to do that. Or at all… Given I could be playing my switch instead. The ways to earn points is asinine – totally back to front!
I added a list above on how to earn easy points.
@RichardL: Yeah, great list thanks. But they nearly all involve playing mobile games. Which I don’t want to do.
The others options are mostly one offs. There’s a 30 points/week for an eshop login on wii u or 3ds (I’m assuming it’s an error that they didn’t mention switch) but thats only 120/month.. Not much
@justtoreply: Linking Nintendo Account usually happens on first startup of the app.
@RichardL: This took me only 7 mins for claiming 600 points (through animal crossing, thank you)
They are actually pretty easy to get considering you get 30 for visiting the nintendo website and 30 more for visiting the eshop each week.
From link above:
1) where does it say there’s a reward for their website?
2) it says the eshop applies to wii u and 3ds only. Is that wrong?
I’m assuming the mission list hasn’t been updated. But I can confirm
Oh ok it’s out of date. Well, that’s a bit better.
1) It says in my coin logs. After visiting nintendo.com.au
2) I’m not sure as my logs lists it as I got it today and I definitely haven’t used my 3DS for a while.
Thanks for letting us know! Pity Nintendo launched it with mostly junk … I mean a Yoshi pen set !?
Nintendo have always done this. With the old program, the good stuff were snapped up in a blink of the eye, while all the crud was left there for ages before it closed down.
It’s a step in the right direction, but max of 3 rewards (worth maybe a couple of bucks each) and $7.95 shipping is a turn off.
Its also worth noting Platinum Points have a 6 month expiry if you are planning to hoard them.
Thanks op, maxed out the coin and minimum items per a transaction. $8 is not bad for two game case and key ring imo, especially shipping to Tasmania 🙂
Leaves a bit to be desired.
If only the SNES controllers were $40 each instead of $39.95…
Thanks for letting everyone know OP! I picked up the Switch Game Card Case and the Phone Ring.
I tried adding to cart but it says item is not available?
