    I believe they are encrypted and only work the 3DS they were downloaded on.

    The day a 3DS hack is released and you can play ROMs it will probably be possible. Until then, no.

    You can get paid DLC's for free at the Train Station.
    It's only € 9,99 a month, and you'll get your DLC's for totally free!

    "Sell" probably means they're not "free". :creep:

    I thought the stores have to validate the card or something, so that they don't work unless they're registered as "sold"? That's how it works with PSN and XBL cards, that's for sure.

    Cards are point of sale activated. "No value until activated at register" is actually true, which is why at my store we had to lock up the WoW time cards until we got the FastCard ones finally. The old ones in the DVD boxes are pre-activated.

    You'd have to get a cashier to ring up a bunch of cards and somehow trick him into finalizing the transaction + payment without giving him any money to get it to work.

    I'm sure you could call Nintendo up, and convince them it was a defective card…

    ...just to have them call the store it was shipped to and find out that it was stolen? :tpi:

    Seriously though, they would tell you to go to the store you got it from since "they're the ones who forgot to top it up/activate it".

    Fine.

    Get your friend that works in retail to activate a bunch for you.

    Or just go in with a gun in your pocket and tell the cashier "no, i'm not happy to see you, now activate the cards"

    Of course only do this if you want to wind up going to jail and get buttraped for the better part of a decade.

    I never said it was was good idea, OP asked, I answer, Foxi4 made me improve my answer. :wink:

    Edit: Steal someone's wallet, use the cash to buy a Nintendo Points card, or use the credit card to buy the DLC…
