Well to my suprise there are some wii points cards available on the nintendo site and i thought i might go ahead and buy some.
I have linked my wii to my club nintendo account with the email address.
I purchased a wii points card (100 points!) in exchange for 400 of my dusty old stars yesterday - they have not appeared on my wii shopping channel's total yet.
Now either they take a while to register or i did something incorrect. Anyone out there who can give me any help i would appreciate it!
