    But you will get 5% of the price of a software you bought online as gold coins.
    Retail only 1%...

    Basically that means hold on to buying digital till the update drops. And then earn 5% cash back from whatever you buy.

    Early adopters get much less though.

    Early adopters get less coins than post-March users.

    Wow, fuck you Nintendo

    The coins expire at the end of March. Early adopters have that month to use them.

    I think if you email team xecuter, they'll give you decals and things based on your gold coins accumulated.

    Cool, with 650 gold coins I should hopefully be able to save some real money hopefully on some games I've really wanted for the Switch.

    I've never participated in these programs. I'll have to do some research.

    I have 0 gold coins and I live in the U.S. I bought VC games on the Wii U and didn't get a single gold coin. :]

    Will physical rewards earn as much as digital now?

    Well, as of recently, Nintendo has been offering a small array of Nintendo 3DS and Wii U indie titles for free with gold coins, so it's likely we'll see the same thing done here.

    I wonder how will we be able to make a My Nintendo Mii avatar without a Mii app on Switch, Miiverse, or Miitomo on mobile.

    This link leads to an error page.

    Seems like it'll just be discounts on future eShop purchases. That's fine with me. Might net me an extra game or two throughout the course of a year. It does mean everyone would have to spend it in some way before the points expire, though, so you wouldn't be able to hoard it for a big purchase later. The rationale, of course, is to get you to buy more digital games before your points expire. I don't like it, but oh well, I get a few bucks off occasionally. Thankfully none of my Gold coins have expired yet.

    It’s an incentive to make you buy something.
