Nintendo Launches Wii Points Card Shop

by Rainier on Dec. 7, 2007 @ 12:27 p.m. PST

Nintendo has launched its Wii Points Card Shop, where Club Nintendo members can swap Stars (from purchased games) for Wii Points Cards, which contain a code that you can enter in the Wii Shop Channel on your Wii. This will add Wii Points to your Wii Shop Channel account, which in turn allows you to spend on such items as games for Virtual Console or Wii Software.

The Wii Points Card Shop is the place where Club Nintendo members can swap Stars for Wii Points Cards. These cards contain a code that you can enter in the Wii Shop Channel on your Wii. This will add Wii Points to your Wii Shop Channel account, which you can spend on such items as games for Virtual Console or Wii Software.

In order to make use of the Wii Points Card Shop you need to link your Club Nintendo account to your Wii Shop Channel account. You can read instructions on how to do this below, as well as in the Wii Points Card Shop FAQ.

Once you have made this connection, all you have to do is login, select the Wii Points Card denomination of your choice and press the ‘Purchase’ button to receive your Wii Points Card code. Please note that we currently allow a maximum of two Wii Points Cards to be purchased per day by any individual. If you reached the daily limit, please come back tomorrow.

Enjoy this Club Nintendo benefit!
