It's perfectly safe to buy your Wii points directly from the Wii--it does NOT save ANY information. That means that you have to re-enter it each time--but there's no risk of the Wii or Nintendo using your information when you don't want it to. (Unlike the xbox--which will still try to use an old out-dated card despite the fact that you've put a newer card number in it!! xbox is a pain!!)
But, the Wii works just fine that way--AND it's the cheapest option.
The Wii points are supposed to be simple---one point equals one cent, so 100 points equals 1 dollar. (again, unlike xbox where I think it's 80 points per dollar--just to make things "look" cheaper.)
The Wii points system is easy to use, safe to use straight through the system, and a LOT of fun.
