    Who doesn't like credit for the eShop?

    Great gift option for 3DS/Wii U owners who want to load up credit on their children's systems and let them buy stuff without having their account tied to a credit card. Plus, with this card, you get a free Goomba card which is one of the rare products that provides a 3D character (visible through the 3DS lens) and with the free eShop download "Photos with Mario" - which you will need to download.

    Works for 3DS, WiiU, and Switch

    Not much to say, this is a convenient way to add funds to your account to purchase games/dlc within the Nintendo e-Shop. It's worth noting that even though the packaging does not explicitly state it, funds from these cards also work with the Nintendo Switch. The Mario 3DS AR card is a nice bonus. You do need to download a different (free) app from the eShop to use this rather than the built-in AR reader on the 3DS.

    Exactly what it is described as

    This is exactly as it is described. An eshop prepaid card for those times that you don't want to store your credit card info on whichever device you are adding funds to. Just be careful when scratching as some people have actually damaged the card and had trouble reading the code underneath. Also make sure you read the information on the card since it can help you if you can't read the code or if it tells you that you entered the wrong/invalid code.

    A must for digital purchases; Especially on sale!

    Every discount helps when spending on luxuries! Best Buy is the only place I know of that has easily accessible eshop cards on sale relatively frequently. If you don't like paying with a credit card on the eshop, using a prepaid card is the way to go. The only drawback is never being able to spend exactly to the cent what the software costs. Luigi was on the $35 card I bought. I only wish that such a small item wasn't shipped by UPS!

    I have 3 children all under 7. We do not ever buy actual games anymore. Everything we purchase through the eshop and download to our WiiU and our 2DS. No more worrying about where that game is or if it got put away. Also, no more switching game discs to play something new, basically it gives your WiiU and DS systems a mobile gaming experience like on an iPod or phone, except it's Nintendo so the games are much better than any iPod game.

    This is a $35 card that you can use on Nintendo eShop. You can redeem it using the eShop on 3DS or Wii U, and use the fund to buy things like DLC and digital games. Personally, I spent this on Fire Emblem Fates DLCs. My advice is to redeem it as soon as possible because someone might take your card using random generating programs. Keep in mind, however, that the maximum amount of fund that you can have at any time is $200.

    These cards are extra handy to have around. They work just the same as adding money to your account with a credit card, but you can receive them from others as a gift. My wife and I spent a ton of money on these on Black Friday. Additionally, Best Buy will occasionally put these things on sale, meaning you can buy money for less than it costs. Since we both plan on spending the Nintendo points, it was only a gain in our book.

    Best Way to Purchase eShop Cards

    If you're enrolled in the My Best Buy Rewards Program and even better is a part of the Gamer's Unlocked Club, this is by far the best way to purchase items in the eShop (besides when they're rarely on sale). If you're enrolled in both, you can simply buy these cards which aren't taxed and gain points for them. If you gain enough points, tada! You just got yourself a $5 dollar discount on your next purchase (eShop card)!

    Simply put, these Nintendo eShop giftcards make great stocking stuffers for both nostalgic Nintendo fans and for young gamers alike. I buy these frequently to avoid using my credit card in the Nintendo eShop. I gift these to my 8 and 10-year old nephews who have no problem inputting the codes and depositing credit via their 3DS consoles. The cute characters on the cards are a plus, if you're into that. Overall, a useful product.

    The Prepaid Card's are a good budgeting experience for my children. It teaches them about shopping online, setting limits and maintaining a budget. They save the money to buy the card and usually already know what they are shopping for (their 3DS, Wii or WiiU, etc.) Lol. It even taught my youngest about being gentle. At first, he scratched that card so hard, he couldn't read the code and that was a waste of $30. But, now he knows better.

    Great but I wish they did an e-gift card

    Overall the card is great especially since I bought it when Best Buy had a sale - $17 for a $20 gift card and I was able to use my reward zone certificate towards it as well. My only complaint was that they had to mail it to me instead of issuing an e-gift card because an e-gift card was not offered. Obviously not a deal breaker but I think it is something to consider if you want it right now. Or, go to the store and get one there.

    At 20% off its like getting free money. The Good thing is, you are not taxed on the initial purchase of the cards but you are subsequently taxed when you make a purchase on nintendo eshop. I wish best buy would have sales on the digital games because my apartment is too small to be collecting games cases and boxes. Love the Nintendo eshop sales! Last time I checked Shin tense I megami and etrian odyssey were on sale! I slam your face!!

    If you have a couple of birthdays for friends coming up, and they have a Wii U and/or 3DS, this item is a no-brainer if you want to go the gift-card route. Unlike other eShop cards, the three $10 cards have a smaller profile, being the size of a credit card. For those who aren't into Nintendo, and know others that are, keep in mind that these cards are only for digital purchases, they can't be redeemed for things like Amiibos.

    Perfect buy when they're on sale

    I normally don't buy pre-paid cards, but I found this one on sale for $15.99. If you're paying full price, it really isn't worth it (unless it's for a gift), since you're paying additional sales tax for the item. If you're buying one to use, it's a lot less hassle to just add the funds directly through the Nintendo store on your console. If you find one on sale, I'd definitely recommend it, since you're getting the $20 for less money.

    Fun use of the 3DS camera

    The $10 eshop card is like any other - you can use it to purchase digital products on the Nintendo eshop. The eshop is great and there are many fun, cheap games as well as the same titles you can get on disc for the Wii U. The addition to this card is the use of Princess Peach with the Photos with Mario app on the 3DS. The card creates a 3D Peach that you can take photos with, which is a fun addition that's completely free.

    My five-year-old grandson loves playing his Nintendo gameboy 3-D and this is the perfect way to let him get additional games for it. I've bought actual game cartridges, and he's fine with those, but they are tiny and easy to lose or misplace. With the game gift card, he can pick what he wants, buy his game online, and always have access to it if he accidentally deletes something from his gameboy. Perfect in every respect!

    I love to purchase this cards because they include the AR card inside and is easy to use, it really gives a purpose for the card once it has been redeemed, the good thing is you can separate the AR card and throw away the outside and keep the AR card by itself. Also love the new characters, it use to be just Mario and Princess Peach, now I can find Goomba and Koopa and other by different retailers.

    Great Alternative to giving your financial info

    The card is pretty self explanitory. You prepay the said amount on the card in store/online and you are able to transfer to either the 3DS or WiiU Nintendo eShop. If you don't feel comfortable entering your credit card or only deal with cash, this is the purchase for you. Heads up though, it whichever system you use it for is only for that system. If you redeem one for WiiU it doesn't transfer to the 3Ds.
