So I bought a $35 eshop card and put it in my 3DS just fine. I went to buy Luigi's Mansion and add the last funds, but I kept getting an error 005-5698 which tells me to try again and shut off my system. I tried adding funds and nothing would work. I even tried changing my region and that didn't work. I can download updates for my ambassador games just fine though.
So my question is this: is the eshop down for maintenance? This says it is. Does anyone else have this issue?

This morning when I got off work (~10 hours ago) when I tried to add funds, it constantly told me I had an invalid expiration date across every debit card I tried, as well.
So yes, I believe the eShop is down.
I'm getting that message now too!!! Absolutely infuriating. Also, to the other commenters, I really don't want to format my SD card. I have all my ambassador stuff on their and what is the extra eshop data? --- If history is to change, let it change. If the world is to be destroyed then so be it.
