If you own a Switch chances are you own a few game carts and you might not know that each game cart you purchase can be redeemed for Nintendo Gold Points. Nintendo Gold Points are points you are awarded for games you buy and you get the automatically for digital purchases and need to take another step for physical games. Nintendo hands out more points for digital purchases BUT those game carts are still worth points and if you have enough of them you might earn a new shiny game on sale.

The steps to redeem are pretty simple in that you put in the game you want to redeem and when the game icon comes up hit +(plus) and select My Nintendo Rewards and Earn Points. I had so many unearned points I have about $6.00 in Gold Points which isn't a jackpot amount but should buy something fun on sale. Also those points expire on older games so redeem as soon as you pick up a new game.

If you buy boutique games (limited run games for example) points may or may not work.

Yeah the error message I got with some games was it wasn't in my region.
