I recently got a $15 Amazon gift card and I'm trying to find a way to get some eShop or VC games, but I'm not having any luck. They sell the eShop gift cards, but for like $28 for a $20 card, so I'm not doing that. I also found PC download codes for games like The Cave and Little Inferno, but no Wii U or 3DS download codes. Does anybody have any ideas, or am I just out of luck?

You can't scrounge together the five bucks to get the $20 card?

Heck if I weren't so lazy I would just send you the Amazon credit. That's less than half my lunch.

If you are looking on the US Amazon site than you are out of luck. Because of the 3DS price drop Amazon and Nintendo aren't on speaking terms so it seems. Amazon wont sell anything by Nintendo (Systems, games etc.). What you are seeing are third party sellers selling the eShop cards which is why they are a bit high.

In other words you are probably out of luck.

@AlexSays, I can, but they are $28 on Amazon. I'm not going to spend $28 on something that I can get for $20 in any store.

@Tasuki That's kind of what I figured. I thought I could also just by a gift card to Target or Walmart or someplace and buy an eShop card there, but I didn't see any of those either, except for a Gamestop one that was not sold directly from Amazon so I would have to pay shipping on it.

The only thing I can suggest is maybe get something else on Amazon. Either that or wait for a game on the 3DS to come out that you really want and put it towards that.

Amazon is only not selling systems. They are still selling games and accessories: http://www.amazon.com/Fire-Emblem-Awakening-nintendo-3ds/dp/B...

Huh well I guess they made some sort of deal than. I remember before the Wii U launched I checked Amazon for NSMBU and the only ones that sold it were third parties. Makes sense though since the problem was with the 3DS system rather than the games.
