    Nintendo E-Shop Points are Essential!

    So do you like to be challenged? Do you like competition? Making yourself better? Then you absolutely HAVE to have Nintendo E-Shop Points! They are are an important element when owning a Wii U as well as a good reason to get a Wii U! Have you heard of Super Mario World on SNES? I have you heard of Duck Hunt? What about amazing games like Shovel Knight? A completely new amazing 2D platforming game, that involves an unbelievable amount of Gameplay and challenges! I love having E-Shop Points, though they were better when we also got 10% back from the Nintendo Club Rewards! But overall a very good deal no matter what, and MUST BUY if you can get them at a percentage discount! I hope this helps and have a great day!

    It's basically a giftcard, what do you expect?

    For those who don't know, Nintendo has an online shop accessible through their systems (3DS, Wii U, etc.) where people can buy and download games. In order to buy games, you can either use your debit/credit card, or buy one of these eShop cards if you're not comfortable with the previous option, to add the necessary credit to your account. That said, it's easy enough to redeem these; just go to the eShop, find the option to redeem the card, input the code, and you're good to go. No delays, and you can spend your credit immediately. As mentioned on the cards themselves, these are usable on both the 3DS and Wii U, and should be good until Nintendo rolls around their next systems down the road.

    What's not to love about a sale-priced gift card?

    Best Buy periodically offers sale pricing on merchandise and these gift cards are not exempt from great deals! I was able to get mine for 20% off face value, so when I visited Nintendo's site to redeem my card, essentially I was able to get $20 worth of their games for only $16! I don't think I've seen other local stores offer similar deals very often, so kudos to Best Buy for partnering with Nintendo for these occasional great buys! Even without the discount, it is convenient to be able to purchase a Nintendo gift card to avoid having to enter a credit card number into a Nintendo 3DS gaming unit over an insecure wireless network; these cards are a safe way to allow users to pay for and download games via Wi-Fi.

    $10 for $10 and then some

    The code on the back will give you $10 to spend on anything in the Nintendo eShop, obviously, but what's special about these is that they also come with "special" AR cards that let you play with select Mario characters with the Nintendo 3DS' cameras. It doesn't look like it, but the AR card is folded inside the main card, along with a little diagram showing how to use it with the 3DS. This makes it pretty unique as one of the few of these cash cards that actually gives you something in addition to the value of the card itself. It's a neat little bonus, and gives at least *some* kind of reason to buy these cards, but that's probably not what you're really interested in buying in the end.

    The Nintendo eShop just keeps getting better!

    In a world where network security is often violated, it's understandable that one would be cautious about where you put your card information; as shown in the Sony Network hacking incident. The Nintendo eShop card gives you a great alternative to giving out your credit card information. It's also a great way to be able to give your children funds for the eShop to purchase smaller games, instead of full price retail ones; or unique experiences that are only available on the eShop. In general, it's a marketplace that is only getting better via the addition of content weekly both in terms of new experiences and retro Virtual Console titles. I highly recommend you give the eShop a try via purchasing a card!

    So you have a WiiU or a 3DS system, but you hate carrying around all those carts. The solution is an Eshop card. Instead of attaching a credit card to your system to buy things from the Eshop on either the WiiU or 3DS, you can get an Eshop card and use it as currency. The Eshop has great sales, so you can get your gaming on the cheap. Plug it in and you're on your way to new worlds to discover, or just buy some DLC. The cards work on BOTH the WiiU and the 3ds at the same time, since one account is all you need for both systems. Perfect for parents who want to give their kids some extra fundage for games but don't want to worry about running up bills. Highly recommended.

    If you have a 3DS,2DS, or WiiU OR know someone who owns any of these systems then a 20 dollar eShop gift card is a great gift idea. This eShop card is used on the online store found within the console. From there you redeem the card's code and use the credit to purchase games from a vast selection. With twenty dollars you can purchase a number of indie titles or virtual console releases. And if the person would like to download a retail game from either 3ds or WiiU game library 20 dollars is half of and nearly half way to completing the purchase respectively. With the eShop gift card you give the gift of gaming.

    Must have if you like digital download

    Some of Wii U contents can only be bought online. So get this prepaid card especially if you like to control the purchase e.g. set a limit of 10 dollars every 1 month. Instead of putting the CC where you will be over blown of your budget, you can use this prepaid card to buy the items and have control of your budget. One advantage: No need to put CD, I hate to put CD so digital download is the way to go. Please get the external Hard-Disk to connect the Wii U and buy the games from the Nintendo Store. (No more scratches of CD). If the hard-disk spoilt then just buy another external hard-disk and re-download the contents from nintendo eShop. easy.

    What to Do if Redemption Number is Scratched Off

    We bought an eShop gift card from a brick and mortar store. My son, in all his eagerness, scratched off everything, including the number that he needed to redeem his card. He was in a panic. Not to fear, said the man at the store. Simply contact Nintendo through their email address on the back of the card. We didn't want to go several rounds through email, so my son called the phone number on the back of the 3DSXL. Very quickly, his problem was solved. They had him read the number below the bar code and asked him to repeat what happened. Voila, his account was credited. We love Nintendo!

    Little by little as I've switched over to digital for my 3DS, I've been more and more interested in the eShop. The amount of games from a wide-scope of genres is incredible, and there are tons of great titles for everyone to enjoy from AAA to Indies. Those that are fans of Steam, I feel you would enjoy the eShop as it is set up similarly and it is fun to simply browse. You never know what gems you'll run into. You may even run into your next favorite game. Lots of these great games are games also that cannot be found anywhere else than the amazing machine that the 3DS is. Get these cards and have fun! Build a beautiful library.

    I bought the 10 dollar eshop card to have some eshop credit, and also get a princess peach card to use on the 3ds for AR card photo shooting in the photos with mario app. This is definiteiy a combo that gives you more for the money you spend as you get 10 dollar eshop credit, plus a character card and app to take photos with. I got the card for my wife, if she ever wants to take pictures with princess peach, and just for the LOLS i also got the koopa troopa card, so koopa could randomly join in on the photo taking fun. Your imagination with the mario characters is endless with these cards.

    A Little More for Your Money

    With this gift card, you also get a special card that, with the free associated Nintendo 3DS/2DS app, allows you to augment reality and place a Koopa Troopa right in front of you--at least on the game system's screen. While this is not especially substantial, it's still amusing to look at and take pictures of. The best part is that this is all for no extra charge, so for only $10 you are getting the same amount of Nintendo eShop credit and a new, little Koopa friend, to boot. If you are buying for a younger fan or someone who loves Mario or augmented reality, this is certainly the gift card to go with.

    Want to play Mega Man, The Adventures of Zelda or some Super Mario but don't want to spend a small fortune investing in a NES/Snes/N64 consoles and games? Already own a 3DS or a Wii U and have $10 to spend? Now you can play your favorite retro classics (And new fare along with some DLC for other games) for $10!!! Zelda and Mega Man for $4.99 each is a great deal and the free AR Card (Mario this time although there are others such as Luigi, Peach, Bowser and more to collect) only sweetens the deal. Purchase this now, its so awesome to get awesome games from your childhood at little cost to you!

    I am finding it easier to purchase a gift card for myself then to try and find money on one of my thousand credit cards for the Nintendo eShop. Not much to say about the card itself however be VERY careful when scratching the back to reveal the code. If you are not careful it will scratch the number as well and then you are in trouble. I myself ran into that problem and had to guess a few of the numbers. Luckily I guessed right to be able to still use the card. You would think all scratchable gift cards would be the same however I have just found out its not lol

    Load up your Nintendo 3DS or WiiU quickly!

    When I got this it was on sale, so it was $40 for $50 worth of credits. It was like getting two $5 games for free! Otherwise, it's still handy to be able to buy $50 worth of credits on your 3DS or WiiU and not have to put a credit card into the device. But when you can get these on sale, it's really time to stock up and essentially get free games! Simple to use, just buy and scratch off the code to enter in your system and the credits are available instantly. Not much else to say other than you can only get them in 4 amounts that Nintendo sells, you can't just buy a blank one and add any amount you want.

    While it is probably more convenient to just buy eShop credit straight from the Nintendo eShop using a credit card, I've been buying my eShop credit from Best Buy and other stores for a while now, mainly for one reason: stores like Best Buy will frequently have gift cards on sale anywhere from 10 to 20% off. Also, buying the cards will contribute to My Best Buy rewards, and will count double if you have Gamer's Club Unlocked, getting you closer to reward coupons. Now - if only Best Buy would follow Wal-Mart and Target and start offering instant delivery on eShop cards via email. ;)

    These are super-easy to use, and you can enter the code on Wii U or 3DS, then use the balance on either console so long as they're both connected to your Club Nintendo account. Using credit on Wii U still counts for Digital Deluxe Promotion credit as well if you have a Wii U Deluxe set. I have a credit card, so I could just use that to pay on the eShop, but 've found myself buying Nintendo eShop cards lately thanks to reward certificates. When I can't find anything else I want, I'll get one of these. The recent surge of triple-A games on Wii U have made a balance very easy to spend.

    Great option for eShop purchases

    I am generally a fan of prepaid cards such as these for video game consoles. I personally prefer them to avoid having to attach a credit or debit card to console hardware, especially as a number of them have proven to be relatively insecure in the past (i.e. Sony's PlayStation Network security breach). In this case, the $50 value works out nicely in that it nearly covers the cost of a full price game, and at the worst would just need to be paired with one of the smaller value cards to get the rest of the way. Thus, under the current pricing standards, it fits a valuable denomination.

    I buy these occasionally at Best Buy. I hate typing in my credit card on my 3DS or Wii U ...over and over...because I don't want my financial information saved. With these cards you can get credit and just enter a string of 16 characters for redemption. It's not out of your way to buy these when you may already be visiting Best Buy anyhow. Just make sure your cashier scans the card *TWICE*. The scan for activation is separate from the scan to ring it up. Your receipt should show a line of text confirming 'ACTIVATION SUCCESSFUL' underneath each prepaid card you buy.
