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.
$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.
I bought this for my son thinking we would receive a code right away but ended up waiting almost an hour which is not much fun with a very excited 10 year old boy.lol It did work and is great if you are not planning a trip to the store anytime soon.
The gift card itself works, once you get it... Took four whole hours for my card payment to go through and for my code to show up. I was so impatient I just ended up buying the game through PayPal on the Switch. Cool for a gift, but for yourself you're better off just using PP.
I received the code immediately, however it did not work until about 2 hours later once the order no longer showed Pending. It was confusing and I thought I would have to contact Nintendo to resolve but I figured since it still showed pending on the transaction in order details on Amazon that it might work once it had finalized.
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.
I find it very useful to purchase digital credit for consoles. But it was my first time to get a Nintendo code. To my surprise the code doesn't come straight away like with PSN codes! I had to wait few hours for the digital code to arrive. That is the only reason I didn't give it full 5 stars
That card works, and redeems on my Nintendo switch, so I don't know what those 1 star reviews are saying when they are saying that it doesn't redeem.. I put 4 star because, although it says "instant" in the title, it takes about 20-30 minutes to process. So it isn't exactly "instant".. I bought 1 the other day and too about 35 minutes to process and to be able to redeem.. I just purchased another one about 20 minutes ago and still waiting. I'm sure it won't be much longer.
With COVID19 shutting shops down and overtaxing mail-order services, I was hoping to send my far-away sister an instantly-available birthday present by purchasing a Nintendo eShop digital gift card to be sent to her email address. However, there was no option for making this purchase a gift to be sent to someone else, it is only designed to be for my own use. I can certainly email her the code, but it won't come as an official email from either Amazon or Nintendo, just as a personal email from me. This is a serviceable way to add money to my own Nintendo eShop account, but it isn't really a "gift" card.
