I got another email which was called a Nintendo Newsletter which had another code for platinum coins I'm at over 1100platinum coins not including Miitomo ones. But I found out that you can only use a certain kind of code once per account. For example I used a code I received from having a Club Nintendo account, but couldn't receive another one I received for my other club Nintendo account. However it did work for my Japanese one since I didn't use the same kind of code before.

Also one unfortunate thing I found out is that points expire after 6 months from when you receive them. Oldest ones are used first when redeeming rewards.

Is the Wario Ware Touched game worth it if I already have the Mega Microgames GBA game from the Ambassador program on my 3DS and Game and Wario on Wii U? Theose are the only 2 Wario Ware games I have played and I think they are pretty fun little games, but I'm not sure I need a third one and think maybe I should just wait and see what else comes up later.

Maybe they plan on giving us that digital version of Advance Wars: Days of Ruin that Japan got from the old Club Nintendo (the DS version was never released in Japan until that point).

@shaneoh: I've received two Nintendo Newsletters telling me to start using My Nintendo but no rewards yet as far as I can see. What does the newsletter with the 200 platinum coins look like? Any idea if it's restricted to a certain country?

The newsletter does tell me though that I should subscribe to the newsletter to get "platinum coin rewards monthly". So at least there's that.

I'm disappointed with My Nintendo. Firstly, the fact you can only get Gold Points from digital purchases. I normally buy my games physically (except for the ones I already have, but can't get any Gold Points from them). I dont see why they cant put codes in the game boxes. Secondly, the rewards are rubbish. I have discounts mostly on games I already have plus the Miitomo rewards are bad. I'm disappointed with this new service.

@lighteningbolt79: At least some people get discounts on games they don't own yet. I already own every discounted game on My Nintendo in some way or another. The only game I don't have on Wii U is Other M, but I already got a physical version for the Wii, so there's no point in getting the digital version.

@lighteningbolt79: I believe the "personalized" rewards are pretty much the same for everyone at this point. Remember that the whole scheme is new so the rewards will most likely become - if not better - at least more personalized in the future. Launches like this take a lot of time and effort so they may not have had the time to add in the algorithms for personalized rewards yet.

I think that by "just for you", it means that when you redeem it, the discount will show up under the "just for you" discounts of the eShop. And the my Nintendo discounts will probably be certain games Nintendo puts on there that you can get.
Sometimes there will be actual discounts made for some people that depends on the games they own.
On my Japanese account I've gotten a couple discounts made for me. I don't have a whole lot of digital games on my Wii U, but in my first "Just for you" discount, Bayonetta 2 was on sale for 30 or 40% probably because I owned the wonderful 101. (There were also some other games too)

Nintendaan got a Fire Emblem Just for you discount for owning the Japanese download of Awakening and could get Fates on sale recently while I didn't get one. (Apparently virtual console didn't count towards it for me...)

How do the discounts work? Is it a code, so I could give it to a friend? Or does it only apply to my account?

People keep saying the Xbox One doesn't have Backwards Compatibility.
I don't think they know what Backwards Compatibility means...

@DefHalan: It only applies to your account, at least in the EU version.

Since it's Monday, I decided to try if the weekly sign-in was bound to a calendar week or if it was bound to 7 days. It's bound to the former.

I opened Miiverse on my 3DS last Thursday to get the weekly bonus of 30 platinum coins on the day the scheme launched. I did the same thing today and was notified that I had completed the mission again. So that being said, you do not have to wait full 7 days before you can get the weekly reward for signing in to Miiverse, eShop, and the official Nintendo website. You only have to wait until the next Monday.

I haven't tested if it works on the eShop yet but the mission is stated to be "active" on the My Nintendo website so it should work. I also just received the additional coins from visiting the official Nintendo website while being logged in (the reward appeared as a loose coin right next to my Mii on the My Nintendo website.

@Nego: I can confirm that everything resets on Monday. Signing in to My Nintendo also gives you 30 platinum points by clicking on the coin next to your Mii on the main page.

@Octane: Ah, thanks for the tip on the coin! I thought it was for visiting the official Nintendo website but I guess not. It's odd though that you get no notification on visiting the official website but that it can be seen in your point history. I didn't even know it was a thing before NL's article on the My Nintendo economy.

Hi everyone. Sorry if this has already been answered somewhere, but do we yet know when more/new rewards are added? Do they change every week/month/quarter/six months?

I've already claimed the only two rewards which are of any interest/use to me (Metroid Fusion with Gold and 20% off Pushmo with Platinum) as I don't own a 3DS and own all the other Wii U stuff on there so far.

There are a few more eshop and virtual console games that I want to buy but might wait and see what the new offers/rewards are before I do...

Tsurii

Hm...are the digital copies for Wii games included in the gold coin thing? I got Other M on Saturday and it didn't give me the 20 gold coins for buying something that costs 19.99€

I don't really care about the rewards apart from TwiPriPicross (heh) to be perfectly honest but I thought I might as well get all the coins I can if I'm buying digital games anyway.

edit: ah, nevermind. Just checked again and it looks like it collects the gold coins on its own.

@samuelvictor: As far as I know, Nintendo has not outlined when the new rewards are added. Considering the current rewards will expire after a set time it's more than likely that they will add new rewards at a set of time.

You can check when the rewards expire by selecting them on the My Nintendo website. The current rewards have different dates on when they expire so it does not look like they will be adding multiple new rewards at the same time. It's possible but I'd guess the new rewards drop in when the earlier rewards expire. This is just speculation though so take it with a grain of salt.

@Nego: Thanks for the reply. Yes, my guess would have been that they will add more to replace them when the current offers expire - however if that's true, that really sucks, as for me, all the options for games/dlc for WiiU don't expire til August. If they added more free Virtual Console games every couple of weeks or similar, that would really encourage me to buy more stuff sooner... here's hoping that they add more rewards on a regular basis.

Nego

@samuelvictor: None of the current rewards really interest me either so I understand your pain. I already own 10 of the games on offer in one form or another and the remaining four titles don't really interest me. I've read though that the Japanese already have some tailored rewards though (Fire Emblem Fates price reduction if you already own Awakening for an example) so hopefully they will set them up in the West soon too.

Then again I don't have access to Miitomo so it's not like I received more than 120 platinum coins in a week. : I'm currently saving for the Twilight Princess Picross but even that is still weeks away (I'm currently at 430 pcoins).
