Switch game prices in Gold Points were not revealed, but Nintendo did confirm that each digital purchase earns you 5% in Gold Points, compared to 1% for physical games. Besides purchasing games, you can earn My Nintendo points by using Nintendo apps like Super Mario Run or Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp on your smartphone and signing into Nintendo services like the eShop.
Nintendo announced that starting in "early March", My Nintendo Gold Points will be getting a major new use.
You can also still redeem your points for existing Wii U and Nintendo 3DS rewards. If you're coming up a bit short for a purchase, you can make up the difference with any of the usual payment methods. So, if you earned them in March 2017, you'll have until the end of this March to use them before they expire. "Up until now, the hardware lifecycle has trended at around five or six years, but it would be very interesting if we could prolong that life cycle, and I think you should be looking forward to that".

This applies to North America, Europe, and Japan. The upcoming changes to My Nintendo should mean that things will be a little more even, but Japan nonetheless continues to get cooler stuff than the rest of us - one of the Japanese-exclusive rewards from late past year was a selection of smartphone cases.
