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 purchased a $50 Nintendo gift Card for my son. Delivery was pledged to be "instantaneous". No code was received. Not in my e-mail, Not in my Spam folder and not online at nintendo or through the Switch at the Nintendo e-shop. As I write this, I am on hold. I have been passed between careless, incompetent employees several times. The first time I called, they hung up on me because they could not figure it out. But my card was charged.
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!
Product headline and image is misleading. This is not a ‘gift card’ and there is no physical product.
I am going to download Pokemon Sword and Shield to my son’s Switch for Christmas. I figured I would give him a gift card with some cash pre loaded so it would be a way of ‘gifting’ him Pokemon. I literally have 50 orders from Amazon outstanding and just thought to myself where the heck is that Nintendo gift card. Its just a much more complicated way of downloading a game. Instead of merely so loading from the Switch store I now have to go through a million hoops, spending time wasted figuring out how this works and how to link up my accounts etc.
It is just highly misleading to say the word ‘gift card’ and to show the image of a typical in store gift card.
I mistakenly purchased this item because of the product description and because of the image. I only download games (no physical media) and the user experience using Amazon as an intermediary is not ideal.
Just because it’s a digital product, it doesn’t mean that it works everywhere. It turned out absolutely useless for my nephew who lives in Switzerland. In this day and age of open source code, why are the online video games regionally divided bits me! Makes absolutely no sense! Amazon needs to do a better job informing its customers about the products that cannot be used when purchased in a region or country different from the location of final application/use.
