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.
i don't know why there's an option to review a gift card code here, but i guess the keypoints are 1. the code worked. 2. the code delivered near instantly via amazon's digital download stuff, email notified me immediately after purchase that i should redeem it. 3. with amazon prime chase card, i save 5% on my eshop purchases if for some reason i missed or there was no discount on a physical copy of a game for prime members.
It's awesome to be able to buy Nintendo gift cards directly from amazon without having to go to a store to pick one up for use with the Nintendo e-shop. I like to keep my credit card information limited to as few outlets as possible, and this way I can purchase digital games off the e-shop without putting in my information. The whole process is extremely quick, with only a few seconds from the time I purchased the digital card to the email notification letting me know my claim code was available. After that, it's a cinch to purchase games for my Switch either online or from the system itself. This is a great way to go about it if you are concerned about safety!
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!
I received the code within minutes of ordering it. It saved the day! My son had a physical gift card for the Nintendo shop and when he scratched off the back to see the code he overscratched it and some of the numbers were completely gone, and others were illegible.We only needed a $10 card so I took a chance that ordering it from Amazon would be fast, and it was!
What is there to say? Amazon money goes in, Nintendo money comes out. Codes are generally emailed instantly (aside from one case where I had to wait a little while and got my code within a couple hours).
Protip: To deal with pesky cases where a game costs slightly more than your balance and adding another gift card would be wasteful, attempt to make the purchase anyway. On the screen where you're told you don't have enough money, there will be a button to press that will let you use a credit card to add the exact amount you need. I use this feature on the 3DS, but I believe the Wii U and Switch also have this feature.
$50 e-shop cards I ordered QTY=2 in one transaction and both card-codes show up in my digital products list. That part is fine. The problem I found is that the "print" button on the second card-code prints the first card-code. There is no way to print out the second card code. So the only way is to copy the code manually into a document or email of my own and then print that one. Cumbersome but simple to do. I contacted Amazon CS about it to alert them of the glitch. No idea if it will be corrected. I can only recommend buying one of these at a time if you wish to print them directly from your digital library listing. That should work since they will each be on separate orders.
This is a pretty good digital code card for the price. The cardboard itself is sturdy, but not so rigid that it can't be folded for easy storage. The corners are pleasingly rounded, so it feels quite ergonomic, and fits snugly in the hand, with no pointed edges. As a bonus, the card features a full color portrait of Shigeru Miyamoto's famous plumber Luigi Mario on the front. While the more expensive $20 card (which retails for around $20) features the more celebrated Mario Mario, if you're on a tight budget this is a reasonable alternative. The back is rather plain, more function over fashion, and is largely monochrome. The one exception is a nice silver strip, which can be peeled away to reveal a code. The code can actually be typed into Nintendo's eShop, and will credit you're account with $10 in virtual currency. This effectively makes the card itself 'free'. It literally pays for itself. All in all, I found this to be a decent mid-range eShop card. While it's not as impressive as more expensive models (the Mario Card, the $50 Bowser edition) it's twice as useful as the cheaper Toad version, and it's well worth shelling out (no pun intended) the extra cost. Recommended.
My son loves downloading games from Nintendo onto his Switch but with the Nintendo account you can only purchase games using Visa or Mastercard. Naturally the only cards I have are my favorite Discover Card (they are the best) and American Express card. I quickly figured out how to bypass this problem. I now purchase the eCash Nintendo Card from Amazon with any method of payment I choose and the gift card information is instantly available for my son to put into his Nintendo account so he can download the game he wants. Thank you Amazon! My son is so happy that he can download his game and not have to wait to get it in the mail.
