I bet this is something 95% of us missed while blasting through the Miitomo info screens. All My Nintendo points expire 6 months after they were first earned.
I am a bit bummed about this. I like stock piling points and cashing them in on something really nice for the little lady I am married to. Makes us both feel special. I guess now I get to be greedy and use them on myself!
**BTW our buds over at Destructoid posted a RUMOR that Nintendo is stopping production of all physical DS cartridges. The DS came out in 2004! Dang time flies when your face is buried in a handheld?**
Your points expiring is not the only thing you need to worry about. I just looked at my My Nintendo rewards and noticed there was a free copy of Flipnote Studio 3D that expires on April 30, so check out your rewards asap!
Gold coins are only earned if you spend money in the Nintendo Shop. I have bought a couple of virtual titles in the past when they were on super sale, but I’ve always preferred having the retail copies of games. Something about having the game on my shelf at home is a big part of who I am. Gold coins also expire 60 days after they are first earned 🙁
