If you have platinum to spare
My Nintendo power users are pretty aware of the various Nintendo giveaway opps that pop up roughly each month, but it’s plain to see that not everyone is going to bother to check out that site. I mean, it’s My Nintendo. The program has seen a huge decline in general buzz since the company eliminated Club Nintendo (RIP), but it’s still alive and kicking, and you can use platinum points to enter contests. Like this one!
It’s called the “My Nintendo Summer Fun Sports Sweepstakes,” and all you need to do is head here and click an “entry” button. You can enter up to three times, and each entry into the Nintendo giveaway costs 10 platinum (to a maximum of 30). It’s that simple! You click the link, flick a button and drop funny money you may have not used anyway, and potentially win something on August 9, once the contest ends.
The summer My Nintendo giveaway rewards include:
- An old school Mario t-shirt
- A Mario Strikers soccer ball
- A Mario Strikers duffle bag
- A Switch Sports duffle bag
- Two water bottles (Mario Strikers and Switch Sports)
As a reminder, if you want physical rewards, you can find our full Platinum Point guide here, which has been updated with details on weekly missions: bookmark it for when you need quick points for a reward. A handful of points is incredibly easy to get, as that’s basically just 15 minutes with Super Mario Run, or a quick sign-on to the 3DS or Wii U 3Shop. Also remember that any shipments are bundled together, so you can pay a flat rate for multiple items instead of paying it each time. Just know that items go out of stock on My Nintendo frequently, and some are never restocked.
