The 3DS and Wii U eShops are no longer allowing purchases or downloads of free items like demos, but it turns out that you can actually still redeem codes on both stores following a deadline extension.

This feature was originally intended to end alongside the normal shutdown time of the stores. However, due to a mistake, Nintendo actually ended things a few hours early.
