“Platinum Point Notification Settings” was added to the system settings under “Notifications”.
- Non-demanded platinum points that are earned by completing Nintendo Switch online missions on your Nintendo Switch system generate notifications.

Platinum points for free content
You can collect so-called My Nintendo Points in your Nintendo account for fulfilling certain tasks. To which include so-called goldpoints next to the platinum points. The difference: Platinum points gets to you for the use of different services and fulfillment of tasks, turning gold points for buying games.
What do I get for platinum points? You can exchange the My Nintendo points at Nintendo for discounts, additional content and merchandise (shipping costs are possible). For example, this includes a Nintendo poster set, various wallpapers for the desktop or a Hyrule Warrior’s notebook.
How do I collect points? Gold points you get automatically by buying switch games. On the other hand, the platinum points collect them by completing missions, even if they have no Nintendo Switch online. So you have to link your Network ID or your Facebook account with your Nintendo account. A selection of missions can be found here.
