Mario Kart 8: Badge Collection - 4000 Points @ Club Nintendo

Found 2nd Feb 2015
I asked for the previous deal that had this to de-expire but simplyjimbo told me to post it if I wanted to, and so here it is.

It's a collection of badges from Mario Kart 8 and perhaps for its fans it might be worth it because there's really nothing too interesting on Club Nintendo as of now (and it's shutting down on September 30 -- you have to use your Club Nintendo Points or you'll lose them).

Whether this is a deal that's up to you to decide if you want to spent 4000 points on this.

That's how Club Nintendo works and for Nintendo users it's a known fact. I've got 9k points though I'm not going to use on this.

the point is you can only buy them with nintendo points and not cash, so how does it belong in the deals section?

Money can be exchanged for Games which come with Stars
Stars can be exchanged for gifts
Gifts can be sold on eBay for money

It's a TriForce economy.

Not that I think this is a deal, but you can buy Nintendo points Here, but they seem expensive. You can also redeem them Here, so it's a little like posting a deal in another currency, you just need to go through an exchange process.

£40+ for some badges seems steep!!


....that said i can't see the badges on the online purchasing system.

you can't see this item in the club nintendo selection because, Nintendo do everything Region-locked.
you linked to the American club, so I'm assuming you were browsing that club.

I also noticed you linked to an amazon item for Wii/DSi Shop points, the club Nintendo currency is Stars, you get around 250 with every disc purchase, or 3DS cart purchase, and digital eShop-only games get you 50 usually after doing a survey.

It is an outcast deal. I'd say it belongs in freebies because it doesn't cost you any money to get them but then others say "but I need stars which I have to buy games for" (btw, buying games for stars is totally the wrong way to look at this).

I don't think you understand.

Firstly, Ando and the poster of this deal made a mistake in calling Club Nintendo Stars, Nintendo Points which does not help things at all. Nintendo points are used to buy download games on the Wii shop or DSi Shop.

Secondly, you linked to the AMERICAN version of Club Nintendo which uses coins instead of stars.

Wow so you are saying I only have to buy 16 £30+ games to get some pin badges? What an incredible deal!

Cold.

Wrong Nintendo points. Those are points to use on the eshop to buying digital content. The points on club Nintendo are not the same.

I just got a set of these yesterday.

The eShop uses currency cards, not points.
The Wii and DSi Shops use Points.

By eshop I meant the Wii and DSI shops, I wasn't aware they didn't use the eshop name across the board.

Those Wii Points on the Club Nintendo really are only usable for Wii/DS not 3DS/Wii U.

If nothing better rises then I'll get the MK8 badge set and I love the game (I even got the Gold Kart/Wheels and am at 8k coins now from getting the Gold Glider).

I still have a few 1000 points. Seems the US get games with there points, shame we cant. I do wish they had picked better badges though. I guess its the new items for the game so that why they chose them
