If you still haven’t picked up Mario Kart 8 yet despite the current offer of receiving a free game in addition to your purchase, you might like to know if you bought a 32GB Wii U and sign up for the digital deluxe promotion, the free game that you get a download code for also awards points, essentially earning you $5 back from your purchase. If you purchase Mario Kart 8 digitally, this adds another $5 in credit thanks to the 599 points you receive from the download. The offer for the free game for Mario Kart 8 ends July 31, 2014 so be sure and purchase the game before then if you want to take advantage of the offer.
If you don’t care about the extra points you’d earn from the digital deluxe promotion on the initial Mario Kart 8 purchase, Amazon currently has a sale on Mario Kart 8, offering it for $49. Either way, it’s nice to see that a game Nintendo gives you for free will also count toward your digital deluxe promotion credit, which is a great way to get cash back on digital purchases.
