Summary: Wii points is really just what it is. It allows you to buy stuff off the Nintendo channel or Shop Channel or even within the games. I bought the card at different stores in Canada and online. I thought it would be cheaper online when the canadian dollar would be high compared to the US dollar.
Summary: I got there, it worked, and many fun things bought with it. A good gift idea for a Wii user if you can't get to a pre-paid master card. Remember it doesn't work like PSN cards. Minus one star over all on that. Should be a connection between club nintendo, 3DS/DSi and Wii, maybe Wii U will fix this.
Summary: There are a lot a great games available for download with Wii Points; Tetris Party and Super Mario III for example (and supposedly, though I have not checked on my system yet, we should now be able to download individual Rock Band songs for 200 points each.
