  1. Thanks.
    Been lookin everywhere for a list like this. Wonder why its so hard to find O_O I dont care how old my post is, I’d love to hear some more suggestions if anybodys got em. Trying to hit platinum this year, cant wait to see 2011 prizes. Thanks for the list.

    • Best thing to do is just to buy all first party Nintendo games. I easily hit platinum each year this way. Other tips for cheap coins include buying newer WiiWare/Virtual Console/DSiWare titles. Each one of those gets you 10 coins if they were released after November 2008 (this may be wrong).

      Some DSiWare software costs 200 Nintendo Points ($2.00 USD). That’s the biggest bang for your buck. Also be sure to do all post play surveys.
