The UK have it in the my Nintendo store, and I use my points on the other one link..
Here is in the UK store: https://store.nintendo.co.uk/en_gb/the-legend-of-zelda-skyward-sword-hd-xl-postcard-set-art-stand-000000000010008340.html
(hopefully I can send in France so I haven't lost my points)
Australia.... What about me. It isn't fair. I've had enough and I want my share.
This isn't for my region but I wish I could use the gold points to pay for shipping on the physical My Nintendo items.
Is it still only possible to pay via Credit Card?
@Azuris you can use PayPal on the Nintendo UK store.
There is also a free HD wallpaper of Skyward Sword available. No platinum points needed at all!
Yeah as @Godzil stated, the my nintendo store uk has all of the physical rewards for UK customers. It still costs platinum coins but all you have to pay with real world money is £1.99 for postage.
Cheaper postage in the UK now. I've finally found an upside to Brexit.
In Ireland. Had to go around the French site to get them, which is weird. Postage €7, hope they are nice.
Lots of Zelda BotW amiibo back in the UK store - including the Champions 4 pack. Dark Samus too.
@readyletsgo Not really that weird. UK store never even shipped MyNintendo rewards themselves (always through the DE store). Standard price for everywhere that isn't Germany is €6.99.
@Gamecuber 50 Platnium Points for the wallpaper
Wow, the stuff they put on there is dull these days.
Be warned that any items for pre-order on My Nintendo Store UK do not allow you to use Paypal.
They only accept credit/debit card or Google Pay, and even then the latter will only allow you to use a bank card associated with Google Pay even if you have an associated bank account.
This happens to be terrible if you have a debit card that will expire before the release date, as they don't change your card until nearer that time, and they do not allow you to amend the payment details on pre-orders.
My Nintendo UK Store's pre-ordering system is awful.
Oh boy, more paper products we could make ourselves if we really wanted to...
Such pointless rewards on this site. I don't recall there ever being anything of worth on there except maybe the animal crossing bag.
Can we have CDs back please?
I still don't understand why the German My Nintendo Store doesn't support any payment method apart from credit card, even though they accept Paypal as payment method on the eShop.
As my credit card somehow doesn't work, I'll sadly have to pass...
@DarkTron there’s two: the one with Link on loft wing with the emblem in the bottom right corner was 0 platinum points when I got it within the last hour.
@DarkTron Oh yeah I know, just thought with Ireland listed on the list of countries, thought they would have a checkout setup for each country.
In fairness, I haven't been on mynintendo in years, just find it pointless ever since Club Nintendo shut down. Could never figure out how to order things on it and UK store never let me post to Ireland. Its just a weird setup I guess.
Anyway, I got the cards, hope they are nice
Not worth the £1.99 postage tbh
@CactusMan Owning the games is irrelevant in this scenario, and the comment you made is particularly confusing. No one was saying the items cost money (in fact, being Platnium Points, they were earned through logging in or playing the smartphone games), just that the comment I replied to said they were free (which I was half-wrong on; 2 wallpapers are available, 1 costing 50 PP, the other being free).
Damn, now I regret I never visit the site.
I have 360 points And 50 gold.
Any tips for easy points?
£1.99 is fair, especially as it comes with a stand which I'm sure I'll find use for.
Might get these for my cousin, he just bought the game
It still makes me laugh when the UK doesn't get listed in Europe!!
But we are the cheapest postage!!
@CactusMan Same here, two surveys this month I've received from Nintendo. The latest was for Mini Motor Racing X... You don't get many points per survey (30) but I surpose it all adds up.
No Mexico? :☹no postcards no skyward steelbook ☹
Yeah, because the UK regaining the right to originate, amend or revoke its own laws (instead of having said laws dictated by an un-elected European Commission) isn't enough of an upside? But instead cheap Nintendo postage seals the deal?
Think it is because you are part of the EU.
@Mark-number-12 yeah, yeah Keep drinking the Johnson Kool-aid.
@BJQ1972 I well remember when justificationist reactionaries like you and Tony Blair took us into an illegal War in Iraq. You do always end up understanding things, but it is usually twenty years too late. Can't you just better educate yourself? What kind of a person could ignore such a democratic deficit? The most important issue is who gets to make a decision about UK laws. As Karl Popper pointed out in The Open Society and Its Enemies, Chapter 7, that is a question that makes the false assumption that there is a single person or group who has the knowledge required to dictate what everyone should do. A better question to ask is ‘How can we so organize political institutions that bad or incompetent rulers can be prevented from doing too much damage?’ How do the EU and the British parliament compare by that criterion? The short version of how the EU works runs as follows. The heads of EU states form the European Council. The European council picks a group of politicians called the European commission who are responsible for originating and writing EU regulations and that sort of thing. The European parliament is an elected body who can vote up or down legislation written by the European commission, or amend it, but are not allowed to originate legislation. So the people who are legally supposed to originate and write all the laws can’t be voted out of office by the public. The people who are subject to being removed by the public always have the excuse that they aren’t allowed to originate laws, so they can’t deliver any specific policy. By contrast, an MP in the British parliament can originate, amend or revoke laws and can be voted out for failing to deliver on policy promises. The competition for which set of institutions is better isn’t even close.
I hope this comes to North America soon too. I might not put up all of them in my game room, but I would put up a couple of them.
Glad to see they've sorted out delivery in the UK now, rather than having to pay 8 quid for delivery from Germany.
Add the steelbook and keyring for free, I'm not sure if Nintendo will honour all 3 items for £1.99 + 400 points?!? Worth a punt though.
"giving away"..."just pay shipping".
Hmm for some reason this doesn't add up. Can't give something away when charging someone lol.
how can one even get those platin coins?? Those are gone after only half a year and you can only get 30 weekly opening the Eshop on either the WiiU or 3DS....
@Mark-number-12 it would be more interesting to see how many of those surrounding the current administration have read what Popper had to say.
‘How can we so organize political institutions that bad or incompetent rulers can be prevented from doing too much damage?’
We could really do with figuring out exactly that at the moment in the UK….
Super fast delivery
I wish Nintendo would stop being so cheap with these giveaways but still forcing us to pay shipping. Because of that, and because of the fact that Nintendo doesn't actually recognize my legal street address, I can't redeem anything from My Nintendo. And this all started after I moved last year. And their customer support continues to be useless. I know it's an issue with their billing system because I only get errors when I try to charge the shipping cost to my credit card. Every other retailer online has no problems, it's just Nintendo. And I've called my bank and they say it's not an issue with their system. I both love and hate Nintendo, they are a great and often times stupid company.
