To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Incredibly upset about this “deal” that was noted both on Nintendo’s website as well as amazon. Customers receive a &35 Nintendo gift card with purchase of a new Nintendo Switch gaming system. I actually didn’t even have a choice when I selected the system this gift card automatically appeared in my cart with it. Prior to clicking purchase I confirmed that there wasn’t a fee, which there wasn’t so I proceeded. I just noticed the additional fee after celebrating our late Christmas & using the “free gift card”. I was charged $31.04 for a $35 gift card. There isn’t any way to contact the seller so I am hoping someone can help after seeing my comment. Everything else is A+++! The system was easy to set up & the gift card is incredibly easy to use. Maybe I can get a refund at which point I will change my rating to 5 stars! Thank you!
A digital code for a gift card is about as straightforward as you can get. Check out, wait for the e-mail, and redeem your code on the Nintendo website (I find this easier than redeeming on the Switch, since you can just copy/paste the code instead of having to type it out). If you have the Amazon credit card that gives you 5% cash back, this is just free money, since you get those points as well as the Nintendo Gold upon purchasing games with this credit. One thing to note is that you may have to wait a few minutes (probably less than 10) for Amazon to verify your purchase and send you the code, which is so that they can verify that you're an actual human. So unless you're a spam-ordering robot, this will be smooth sailing for you.
I like the convenience and security of these eGift cards. I trust Amazon with my credit card and as a Prime member with the Amazon Visa card. I get 5% Amazon credit on purchases. So it's an easy choice to just purchase a gift card when I want something from the Nintendo eShop. I do the following when I am ready to purchase something for the eShop. I go online and start the game purchase the on the Nintendo eShop site. During the purchase it will ask if I want to use a credit card or a eShop gift card. I pick the eShop card option and then head over the Amazon in another browser tab and purchase the card in the denomination that I need. After that I copy the eGift card number from my order on Amazon. Then go back to the Nintendo eShop tab and paste the code in that way. This is the most efficient way for me to make a purchase. And it gives me a sense of security, With the knowledge that if my Switch is ever stolen. No one has unlimited access to my credit card in the eShop.
Got the email fairly promptly. In the email click the link that says "Your Games and Software Library" and it'll take you to a page that displays your redemption code. Grab your Switch and go to Nintendo eShop and redeem your code to see your running balance. Hope this helps some of the confusion I'm seeing about not getting the code or not knowing how to apply it.
I wanted to surprise my nephews in Canada with 2 gift cards for their Nintendo switches and I was surprised that they didn't work. Now I am out 70 bucks and there are no refunds or redeeming these codes. It seems like there is a note in the fine print that this is only available in the US. What a way to rip people off.
I ordered the code with no issue using a prepaid AMEX card (Nintendo eShop only accepts Visa and MasterCard). The code was instantly available in my Amazon account. The code worked in the Nintendo eShop and I now have $35 credit.
This is not a physical item, it is a digital code as stated in the item name.
