    Apparently I can't use my Nintendo club points, and I believe they're about to expire by the end of the month... The reason I can't use them is because it seems that a UK/Ireland billing address is required (I live in Egypt), even though I'm only trying to redeem a software, so I'm giving them away in case anyone is interested, because otherwise it would be wasteful to let them simply expire. I only have 1650 points, but they're still good enough for a decent classic (Link's awakening DX requires 1600 points). So... is there anyone who might be interested in a few more points before the end of the month?

    Would it work for someone in the States? I'd be interested.

    You can send points? Either way I'd love them! :) I'm in the UK so it should work since I ordered something last week and I still have some points to spend.

    I'm really not sure about the details... It says in the Nintendo club faq you just need to supply the receiver with your console serial number, though I'm not sure whether uk points can be used in the states or not... Hasn't anyone tried this before???

    As far as I know it would only be for European places not states, and if its like a download then it would probably not work either since its region specific. I would probably buy a game or something for Virtual Console :)

    hmmmm... Well I'm thinking it might be practical to ask if there are any children around here??? I guess the younger you are, the more likely you can put it to use... I guess...

    I tried, a billing address is still required...

    EDIT: Is it by any chance possible to use the points through the 3DS e-shop???

    Alright EpicInki, 15 sounds relatively young enough "I turned 28 this month :( ", plus you are showing a lot of enthusiasm, so I guess the points are yours! :D

    Well I thought it would end by August... anyway it doesn't matter, I really don't believe they would change their policy in 2 months, besides for me the only item on the list that I find interesting is Zelda: Link's awakening DX, though I already still got the Gameboy color cartridge, so it's still wasteful when you think about it. I'm sure you'll put the points into much better use...

    oops :S It's too late, I already gave them to someone! Though I don't think it would have actually worked... You'd have to have a UK or Irish billing address, even if you only would collect a downloadable software... That's the reason why I couldn't use them in the first place... Sorry man! :D
