Besides Amiiqo, NFC tags, and buying the actual Amiibo, is there any alternative ways to get the loot in game? I've heard about downloading the amiibo bins or w.e to your android phone, but that still requires the nfc tags or amiiqo right?

It requires NFC tags. I just got some from eBay for like 5€/10pcs

Would TagMo work on a Samsung Galaxy SIII? I know, it's an old phone. Waiting until Black Friday for a possible good deal on an S8. Also, I notice that when selecting from 1 lot to 2 (1 lot = 10 pack), shipping changes by almost 2 dollars because it changes shipping service (which saves only one day on the low end). If one were to buy from this, should individual lots be purchased separately instead of packing multiple lots together to save money? Or do they have something set up to prevent that?

One other thing. Do these have a sort of adhesive or some means to stick onto other things? I know practically nothing about NFC tags, but was thinking of getting some and printing out some art to place them on so as to differentiate them from others.

It's a shady site at best. I got a 100 tag pack from a seller and from the 70 or so I've used, I've only had one dud. So I'm pretty happy. I suppose with Ali, you should only spend what you're prepared to lose, just in case lol

Would really be helpful if what store (name of the store) you bought it from. Aliexpress is a hub for sellers. Next time people should check out the feedback on the shop they're buying from.

If one seller scams you it doesn't make the whole site bad.

I like Aliexpress! Bought lots of stuff from different vendors and Ialways get what I order, including my amazingly cheap Xiaomi 4X (Customs had it for a few days, but I only had to pay around €20 in extra fees). So far I've ordered 3 packs of 10xNTAG215. It's actually insane when I think about it, free shipping from China and 10 credit card sized NTAGs for a little more than €3.

The store isn’t online any more, probably why.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think getting an N2 Elite (formerly Amiiqo) is more economical compared to getting NTAG215. That is of course if you want to write most if not all Amiibos out there since they still keep on releasing Amiibos.

Good riddance to them.

Yes, because you can rewrite new amiibos. On NTAG215 is OTP.

You can buy here -> https://www.aliexpress.com/item/New...32818803987.html?spm=a2g0s.8937460.0.0.B2zg30

I'd source it from other stores. That seller has only 2 reviews on that particular product - one that is working, while the other isn't. It's risky. Don't get me wrong that seller has good ratings but that specific product is not. Might wanna consider the resellers on their website (http://www.n2elite.com/Resellers/)

I read that you can only re write so many times with these n2 elite type devices before somthing wears out, dunno how true that is.

    A strong hunch of mine is that a cheap oil pipe from Alaska would have hurt the middle East and lowered prices. If I was a big investor in oil, I would probably not want that at all.

    Yeah and the truth is oil companies reported record profits yet there's no room to reduce oil prices at the pump because, um, economy.
