Nintendo first talked about the Wii U’s “Deluxe Digital Promotion” back when the two SKUs were initially unveiled, but details about the initiative have since been scarce. Today, however, Nintendo has revealed what exactly purchasers of the 32GB, Deluxe version of the Wii U will be getting for their efforts.

As detailed over on Nintendo’s website, any Deluxe Set owner who buys a Wii U game from the Nintendo eShop will receive ten percent of its value back in points. So, if you buy a game for $59.99, you get 599 points in return.

Once those owners accrue 500 total points, they’ll get a code that gives them $5 in Nintendo eShop credit.

The promotion will begin letting players earn points on the Wii U’s launch day, November 18, and run up until the last day of 2014. Points can be swapped for eShop credit up until June 2015. The website to track your Deluxe Digital Promotion purchases itself doesn’t launch until this December, however.
