PSA: Last Chance To Buy Nintendo Switch Game Vouchers
Back in May, Nintendo kicked off a limited-time voucher program that gives Nintendo Switch Online subscribers the option to purchase a pair of game vouchers for $ 100, saving up to $ 20 off of the two titles’ regular combined retail price. If you’re interested in taking advantage of the offer, however, your time to do so is running out, as the last day you can purchase these vouchers is Wednesday, July 31.
As previously mentioned, this offer is only available to those who have a Nintendo Switch Online subscription. If you fall in that camp, you can purchase the vouchers through Nintendo’s website or the Eshop and then redeem them on select first- and third-party Switch games. The vouchers are valid for a full year from the date of purchase and don’t both need to be redeemed at the same time.
The Switch games eligible for the voucher program range from already-available titles such as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, and the recently released Super Mario Maker 2 and Fire Emblem: Three Houses to upcoming releases like The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, Luigi’s Mansion 3, and Pokemon Sword and Shield. You can find the full list of eligible titles on Nintendo’s website.
Nintendo Switch Online subscriptions run for US $ 4 / £3.49 / AU $ 6 for one month, US $ 8 / £7 / AU $ 12 for three months, and US $ 20 / £18 / AU $ 30 for one year. Nintendo also offers an annual Family Membership, which costs US $ 35 / £31.49 / AU $ 55 and covers up to eight Nintendo Accounts across multiple systems. In addition to special offers like the voucher program, the subscription allows you to play Switch games online and back up your save data to the cloud. It also gives you access to certain games like Tetris 99 and the Switch NES library, both of which are free to download for subscribers.
