Post Consumer Brand cereal boxes giving out 50 Platinum Points on My Nintendo

Posted on September 25, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in Mobile, News

Earlier this month, Nintendo announced a partnership with Post cereals. Marked packages are offering consumers a chance to win one of 500 Switch Prize Packs, featuring a Switch system and Super Mario Odyssey.

20 million Post Consumer Brand cereal boxes come with codes. These include Honey Bunches of Oats, Grape Nuts, Honeycomb, Golden Crisp and Alpha-Bits, as well as in Malt-O-Meal cereals such as Honey Graham Toasters, Coco Roos and Marshmallow Mateys.

Even if you don’t win one of the packs, there’s still something in it for you. Coes can be used to earn Platinum Points. We knew this previously, but reader Ben tells us that it’s 50 Platinum Points specifically.

      I did when Frito Lay had their Switch sweepstakes. I ended up winning a Switch after entering my third code.

  • all due respect, i can get 50 platinum points by reaching down and scratching my butt

    they’re worthless

    Nice gesture, but really the problem with mynintendo isn’t getting points, it’s the rewards.

    Even if a receive 1 milion platinum points, My Nintendo still useless

  • I’m at the point where I’m downloading wallpapers I don’t even want because my hard-earned points expire each month anyway.

      • Gold Points don’t even give free games anymore, and nowadays you have to use them to get measly 3DS themes. MyN was mediocre to begin with, but it’s like they’re purposely trying to make it more worthless every month.

          “Gold Points don’t give free games anymore”

          Speak of devils and they shall appear…

          • Lo and behold, but one-and-done Nindies fail to compare to the games MyN offered at debut and Club Nintendo did every year.

          • Ibi Salmon

            True, but what else are you going to spend your gold coins on?

          • obviously those sweet game guide PDFs, bro

    • Aline Piroutek

      Not even a Wii Sports Club DLC they’re giving for free

    • bdp

      i’ve had gold points expire and i don’t even care.

  • DeltaPeng

    Per the headline, I think the bigger news is the 500 Switch + Mario Odyssey system giveaways,

    …but hey, platinum points are cool too I guess

      Ya. These sweepstakes brought back a rush of nostalgia, though.
