Hello there! Was wondering about the earning of points for NNP (Nintendo Network Premium). I bought a Pikmin 3 download code from GAME yesterday and I downloaded the game through the sShop using this code. Would I still get the points for Pikmin 3 because I downloaded it to count to my Nintendo Network Premium points or no? Please reply please :)

I believe so. The download code I got for Nintendo Land in my ZombiU set gave me 599 points, the same as it would have if I had downloaded it directly from the eshop.

The problem is however, when I downloaded Pikmin 3 I waited 24 hours to see if the points would be redeemed but I recently checked the website and its not....!

I think it took a few days for it to appear in my account. Give it a week. It took that long before Nintendo Land even appeared as registered in my Club Nintendo account.

Normally eCodes brought from retailer do count for Premium Points. I've recieved them in the pasr and it states on the Nintendo Premium website uUsage guide it tells you the eCodes are valid.
HOWEVEr... I got me Pikmin3 eCode from Game and redeemed it on Wednesday, before the game had released on eStore (Midnight Thursday) and because I still have not got my Premium Points I Telephoned Nintendo Support where I was told: "Because the Code was redeemed before Pikmin was officially released the Premium reward system would not of detected your purchase. Premium reward purchases will only be detected by direct purchase from eStore or eCodes redeemed once the software has been released on eStore"
So as great as getting Pikmin3 early was it seems that those of us who took advantage of getting the code early have a price to pay for that early access. Having said that if your still to buy Pikimin3, GAME UK are selling eCodes for £5 less the eStore and you will now get the Premium Reward Points.

Games make a great console, not technical specs.

Its strange that the Pikmin 3 download was still registered early on Club Nintendo & given stars for the catalogue but then Nintendo doesn't allow for it to give the Premium points & 30% off W101.

I don't want anything from the stars catalogue.
