Deluxe Wii U

 

Time is running out to take advantage of Nintendo’s Deluxe Digital promotion for those who own a deluxe, black Wii U system. You can still earn points on Wii U eShop purchases through December of this year. After that you have through March 2015 to redeem your points for coupon codes. The coupon codes must then be used by the end of June 2015.

I’ve heard of some people not even knowing about this promotion, so what is it? Basically, it is Nintendo’s way of giving back to those who spent a little more and got the deluxe, black Wii U (which has a lot more built in system memory than the normal white Wii U). This promotion essentially gives you money back on your Wii U eShop purchases. Each time you make a purchase on the Wii U eShop, you earn points at a rate of 10 points for every dollar you spend. For every 500 points you earn, you can redeem the points for a coupon code, which you can then redeem on the Wii U eShop to add $5 credit to your eShop account.

So how do you know how many points you have so far? That’s simple. Just go to the Deluxe Digital promotion page, and log in with your Nintendo Network ID. The page will then show you how many points you have so far, and if you have enough points there will be a button that lets you get a coupon code. Then just get on the Wii U eShop, click on “Enter Download Code” at the top of the screen, and enter your coupon code. It will say that the credits will now be added to your eShop account, so click the “Add” button. That’s it, you’re done. All that’s left is to buy something on the eShop with that money now! For new purchases, it should be noted that it may take a little while for points from those new purchases to show up on your Deluxe Digital promotion page.

With several games of late having significant DLC, like Mario Kart 8 and Hyrule Warriors, you can earn a lot of points quickly. Then there are also full games to purchase on the eShop as well, which will also net you a lot of points. Many people have nabbed Super Smash Bros. on the eShop recently, for example. There are also many cheap games on the eShop. In fact, I used a coupon code from this promotion to get Armillo yesterday. It is easily more than worth the $7.99 price tag so far!

One of us here at oprainfall discovered he had $30 in coupon codes racked up from the Deluxe Digital promotion! So if you’ve purchased stuff on the Wii U eShop, go check out how many points you have piled up and waiting for you to spend!

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.

    I hope they keep doing it afterwards. And that they extend it to 3DS downloads as well.

    I sadly did not buy a lot with it onine.
    I got Ducktales Remastered and it counted the game I got for free with Mario Kart 8.

    I mainly keep buying dics untill nintendo makes a uinfied acount system instead of console bound.

    I’ve had some amazing deals on the eshop. In the last year, I’ve gotten around $200 of eshop credit, $150 of which was 20% off at Best Buy. I paid $120 for $150 of credit, used it almost exclusively on discounted games, and got 10% ($15) back from the Deluxe Promotion. It was a good year. I’ll miss the promotion, but maybe Nintendo has something planned to replace it. I just hope it’s not a paid subscription that bars non-subscribers from its sales (PS+).

    I’ve barely ever used this promotion since most of the time I refuse to pay full price on a digital retail game without a true account system in place (indie games are okay to buy though, since they’re cheaper). Though, it’s pretty cool that the Club Nintendo reward game for registering Mario Kart 8 and the Platinum reward (if you chose a Wii U game like Game & Wario) counted toward the promo, so I essentially got two free $5 vouchers with my free games.
