Technically only once so far. Art Academy: Lesson's for Everyone. this was of course the only way to get the free (LE for 3DS) Donkey Kong: Original Edition game. the price @ a full MSRP of $29.99 + tax for a downloadable title was a hard pill to swallow but i said F it and did it anyay.
I already wanted this Art Academy game (more like App) anyway and DKOE so it was a no brainer at the end of the day, even with the horrible pricing.
I also have the digital version of MK7 but i didn't actually buy it from the eShop myself. it already came pre-installed on the 3DS XL holiday bundle from last year. after all discounts and free GC's i only paid $129.99 + tax for the bundle so i didn't mind it at all ;).
Other than that i doubt i'll buy another full retail game digitally unless:
1. Nintendo gets their head out of their asses, finally gets with the times and incorporate an actual user account system, which most of their competition seems to be able to do..
2. Has actual deals and sale on these digital copies..
3. Is the only way to get the game at all, i.e. Unchained Blades, etc.

Getting FE:A from the eShop. Its going to be the same price in stores but I won't have to pay tax or try to find a copy. I got New SMB2 from amazon for 31.59 last night. There was only one copy left at that price and that was like 9 hours ago so hurrrr up if you want it.
Edit: Found New SMB2 on ebay as $29.99 at buy it now price with free shipping. No reason to pay $40 for a digital copy.

lolno. I don't buy anything from the eshop. And I won't until Nintendo changes the system so that purchases are tied to an account instead of the hardware. The only things I get from the eshop are games I get with CN coins.
