The lights are on
There are some big Nintendo games coming over the next few months. Pikmin 3, Rayman Legends, and Wind Waker HD will all be coming to the Wii U this fall. Nintendo wants you to load up your wallet to get ready, and they are offering you money to do it.
Through July 28, if you add between $50 and $99 to your eShop account, you'll get a $5 promotional code. Add more than $100, and you'll earn yourself $10. Codes will be delivered on August 2 (two days before Pikmin 3 arrives).
This is for Wii U only, but if you are looking for some free cash for the 3DS, Nintendo and Atlus are still running their Fire Emblem and Shin Megami Tensei promotion. Buy them both and you'll earn yourself $30.
Our TakeSmart move, Nintendo. This not only incentives people to commit to eShop purchases, but it is a smart way to promote upcoming titles. It's also wise for them to include Rayman Legends on the page, giving people a reminder that it was originally designed for the Wii U. This is two intelligent promotions in a very short period, and I hope it marks a new strategy for the company.

Pretty good deal. If you know you're going to get those games for sure, it can't hurt to add those funds now and get a little discount for it.
Oh great I get $10 for spending $100 when there isn't any games to play.
gotta hand it to Nintendo family friendly and still kicking love it Nintendo and sony will rule my house for years to come
The Fire Emblem & Shin Megaten deal puts REAL money in your wallet - something you could actually buy a pretty hefty game for. And you won't have to spend $100 to pick up those games. After that, this Wii U deal feels almost like a ripoff. Well not a ripoff per se... more of an empty gesture than anything. Although I suppose you could buy... some eShop game for less than $10, right? How much is Mighty Switch Force HD?
I hope they do more promotions like these.
Am I the only guy who want dand can see Windwaker HD going on the 3ds? I dont see why it couldn't work
A good promotion but I like retail copies of my games.
I took advantage of the 3DS promo. Since I was a premium member loaded with Coins, I was able to cash in on Links Awakening DX for my boyfriend. Plus, snag the $30 for the eshop since I got both games. Not sure about the promo for the WiiU items. It's just not inticing enough to drop so much money and get so little back. You can do better nintendo.
