Do you own a Wii, but Wii Points aren't earning fast enough? There are ways to get some extra points for free to get closer to getting those gifts you've been looking out for. Of course, getting something for free is always questionable, but if you want to accept an offer, there are ways to do it.
Method 1 of 2: Exchange Stars for Wii Points (Europe and Japan)
Step 1. Link your Wii Store Channel account to your Nintendo Club account
Otherwise, you will not be able to use the Nintendo Club website.
Registration on the Nintendo website will bring you 100 points automatically after filling out your profile
Step 2. Look for scratch cards in your game packaging
Sometimes, along with the manual for your game, you can find a small piece of paper with a request to register (and subsequently receive stars).
Step 3. Register your products online
It only takes a few minutes of your time and no vital information is requested.
Every time you register a product, you must earn 150 stars. All you need to do is register and fill out a questionnaire about your shopping habits and circumstances
Step 4. Go to the Wii Store
Now you start the exchange, keep a pen and paper close at hand.
- Here you will be prompted to exchange your stars for Wii Points. You must select the quantity you want to exchange (it often happens that they are "out of stock"). If you choose, you will receive a 12-digit code separated by four dashes.
- Write it down somewhere! You don't want to risk forgetting it.
Step 5. Log into your Wii account and go to the Wii Store channel
You already linked it to your Nintendo Club account, right?
It's in your home menu - the same place where you create Miis, get Netflix, etc
Step 6. Click on "Use Wii Points Card"
You will need to use the 12 digit code obtained from their website instead of the actual card.
Step 7. Enter the 12-digit number in the blank field on the screen
Make sure it is correct and click "yes" to get your points..
Return to the Wii Store Channel menu and buy channels or games with your Wii Points
Method 2 of 2: With Codes From Websites
Step 1. Do some searching
There are many websites claiming that you can get Wii Points for free by giving them information, filling out a questionnaire, or completing their offer. Many (if not all) of them are not legal. Be careful before you do anything - you don't want your data to be stolen.
Prizerebel and Rewards1 - 2 sites that claim to be able to do this. If the information you have collected on the Internet is confusing or looks like spam, ask your friends or family if they can help you figure it out if they have experience
Step 2. Create a trash email
If these websites require action, have an additional email address specifically for spam. You will receive a lot of it. And more importantly, don't give them any information about yourself. Fill in these fields with plausible but fake data.
A new email address can be obtained instantly from any email provider
Step 3. Register
If you find a site that does what you were looking for, complete the registration process using your fake information and mailing address. When this is done, start looking for deals that interest you.
Complete the questionnaires and offers as described and pause. This may take a few minutes. After you have received enough points, exchange points for codes of available prizes. Codes will be sent to your email address for spam
- Currently, the exchange of stars for points is not available for the United States.
- Not all code-offering websites operate globally. See what is available for your region before wasting time.
- If you look at the exchange of stars for points, it may be "temporarily unavailable" in the category you are looking for. Keeping trying may pay off, but it may not.
- There is no reliable way to get something for free. If you go to websites that may not live up to the promises they make, be careful. Technology can be used to haunt you.
- Many people will want you to use their referral links - they will receive free points just for using their link.
