edit : In addition to the list above, at least three more titles will be eligible : ASTRAL CHAIN, Fire Emblem : Three Houses, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3.

Seems like a no-brainer since I was going to pick up Super Mario Maker 2 and MUA3 at launch anyway and SMM2 had to be digital for me. Purchase made, voucher #1 redeemed for SMM 2!

Think there's a chance any other titles will be added? Seeing it allows a full year to be redeemed, I would think possibly. But then again it doesn't specifically say more titles will be added.

EDIT - never mind, looks like they added this line:
"The selection of eligible software will continue to grow over time."

One important thing to note is that the vouchers are bought with eshop money, so if you have a cheap source of eshop cards you can stack the discount.

If you have a cheap source, please let us know here!

Best I have these days is 7% off using Game Stop credit bought via the Samsung Pay app.

Also you get 500 coins with the Voucher 2-pack purchase. So really it's $95 for 2 $60 games. A great deal. And you can do it numerous times -- the fine print says you can have up to 8 vouchers in your account. They do expire in a year, so I wouldn't recommend getting much more than you think you will use though.

This deal goes through July 31, so we will have a better idea of the upcoming games we can use this on after E3.

Costco has had 50 for 45 for some time now (obviously only if you're a member)

People on the Cheapassgamer trade forums are also regularly selling eShop currency for 10-20% off. That's where I get all my PSN, eShop, and Xbox credit.

Thanks SunMonkey. I entered after I saw your post, and I got my code yesterday. A free game is always welcome, especially on the Switch.

I was able to get my other 9 months today. If you signed up for the initial 90 days around the time of the original post it's time to go back and claim the other 9 months.

I don’t have a Switch, so this doesn’t affect me, but I saw a free month of Switch Online today when I was looking at gifts for Twitch Prime members,

It won't let me redeem the offer. I'm going to try again in the morning.

Is anyone else having problems claiming the 9 more months of Nintendo online offer? I have tried the past two days and I haven't been able to claim it.

I am finally able to get to the screen to claim it, but it says I need to put in a 16 digit code. Where do I get the code?

All over the Mana collection, but only for #3.
Already have #2 (original SoM) on multiple platforms, and don't really care to play the Gameboy original.

If for some insane reason you haven't bought Hollow Knight yet, it's on sale for 50% off. It's a steal at the regular 15 dollar price.

I have it for the PS4, and it is a great game, but I am stuck as fuck - not only is it too hard for me (stuck at a boss - like, the very first one even), and I have no clue where to go most of the time. Wish there was an easy mode.

So make sure you know what you're getting into!

New titles that will be available for purchase with vouchers later include

Pokémon™ Sword
Pokémon™ Shield
DAEMON X MACHINA
The Legend of Zelda : Link's Awakening
DRAGON QUEST XI S : Echos of an Elusive Age - Definitive Edition

I went ahead and pre-purchased MUA 3. Time for another $100 of Costco eShop credit for $90!

Did they remove the July deadline to buy the vouchers? I don't see it on the product pages any more.

Re: Nintendo Switch: Building a New Generation of Hardware from Scratch

I used two vouchers on Mario Maker 2 and MUA 3. I just bought another 2 pack to use on Link's Awakening and .... something. I could use on on Pokemon Sword/Shield but since that would be $38 with preorder and GCU, it doesn't seem like the best choice. Hopefully more titles will be added soon. And I think it's reasonable to expect Animal Crossing to make it to the list by the end of the year.

I know I could use the two new vouchers I just bought in the next year. I guess the question is should I buy another 2 before this deal expires?

BTW : Here's the trailer for Link's Awakening. Not sure I love the art style and not sure it looks like a $60 game. I'm sure I will love it regardless.


And Gameplay footage

I don't love the art style either but I look forward to playing this again, hopefully they added a bit of content to it for the pricetag.
