[quote="Pichu10585"][quote="Chewie"]So, instead off 10% off each purchase we make, we have to spend £63 to get a fiver off? I assume I've gone wrong in my calculations somewhere, someone please tell me I'm wrong.
Edit* Nope, other people above have got similar. Not good enough Nintendo.
Also, I suppose it's personal preference, but I'd much prefer to have 10% off each individual purchase than wait until I've gained enough points. It's an entirely unnecessary system, just give us the 10% off.[/quote]
The idea is so that Nintendo know that they have your custom before giving the discount. It is just a better business model, really.
And, for goodness sake, why is everyone complaining? At least they are giving you a discount at all![/quote]
We paid the extra £50 for not only for Nintendo Land (which when bought separately with a basic model is cheaper than the deluxe), but the premium discount and the extra memory required to download these games. The deluxe model is surely aimed at those who intend to use the Wii U shop? Nintendo are aware of how much our retailers are charging for their product, they are surely aware that buying Nintendo Land and the Basic model is cheaper than buying the Deluxe model. It is fair to assume therefore that, given Nintendo are an incredibly successful business, are aware that a large percentage of those who buy the deluxe model will be paying extra for the online benefits, and would assume you are going spend money on the Wii U shop.
But all that is irrelevant, when considered that if someone doesn't use the 10% discount at all, neither the developers or Nintendo are impacted by the discount, giving them no reason (that we're aware of) to not have the 10% off. We're complaining because we were told we were getting a 10% discount, and instead we get a point system that requires us to spend £63 before we save anything at all. What if I was only interested in Trine 2? No discount.
