Nintendo Zones - What's the Point?

#1ChexmixingPosted 10/22/2013 11:41:15 PM
New to the 3DS here, I'm still trying to figure out a lot of the system.

Anyways, today I connected to a Nintendo Zone at Starbucks. It was ok, I guess, but I didn't see many features that I couldn't get at home on wifi.

I didn't really see anything that interested me, but what features do you all like most about Nintendo Zones?

Special DLC, currently I am getting ACNL items from Nintendo Zones. Got a special mii a little while ago.
Streetpass relay.
Free internet at weird places like Home Depot for some strange reason.

Free internet at Depot isn't weird. As someone who has a brother in construction for their career I know he takes his tablet to Depot and other warehouses to keep his inventory with his company in check online as well as sometimes sending pictures through email to his clients.

Nintendo Zone at Best Buy sometimes offers digital coupons for games if you connect there and have the cashier scan the bar code on the 3DS screen.

Really? Might have to keep that in mind.
