Tom Nook Totes and Other Animal Crossing Goodies Come to My Nintendo

Tom Nook Totes and Other Animal Crossing Goodies Come to My Nintendo

You, too, can spend your points on a Tom Nook tote.

The whole My Nintendo rewards program is a bit silly. I mean really, apart from scalpers, does anyone actually prefer this over being able to just pay for some branded goodies? Still, if you're racking up points and Nintendo deems to offer some nice stuff in your region, you may be compelled to grab what you can. Today, people in the states can get their hands on some Animal Crossing: New Horizons items if they've got the points for it.

Twitter's ever-watchful deals wizard Wario64 posted about the new Animal Crossing items today, and if you're used to Nintendo offering so-so postcards or commemorative pins that vanish in an instant, these solidly "okay" offerings may actually pique your interest. The most expensive of the bunch is already gone, though.

That'd be the Tom Nook Keychain, available for 1,000 My Nintendo points. At the time of writing, the other three options—a Dodo Airlines shopping bag, a Nook family bag, and a handsome leaf-patterned bandana (that's what I picked out)—are all still up for claiming.

Given the massive success and popularity of New Horizons, don't be shocked if all of these items go away before the offer cut-off date. Sure, a Dodo or Tom tote might not be the most desirable goodies, but they won't give you a toothache like the Cold Stone collaborations you can print off a My Nintendo coupon for. Maybe you just want to be practical and rep Orville and Wilbur while you run your errands?

These offers all expire on Oct. 30 or, presumably, whenever Nintendo runs out of stock. If you've got points to burn and a love for Animal Crossing, claim whatever you can while you still can. With our luck here in the states, it may be a while before My Nintendo puts up more items like these.

Also, don't forget that New Horizons just received a Halloween update. Want to start growing pumpkins and dressing in a spooky costume? Now you can.
