Works out at £42 for each game in the UK. Not really much of a deal to be honest.People always complain you can never get Nintendo tittle on discount, so here’s a way to get that discount. It’s a savings that no one else is offering, hell this works great because I don’t have Best Buy’s program anymore and Amazon got rid of their preorder discount.
Because you’re saving £10 of a £50 game.
That's really the only information I need.
I just checked to be sure.
Unless you want digital, you can preorder them online and still get the discount on release. Plus the $10 in rewards.With my GCU expiring in July, this seems like a great deal to preorder Pokemon Sword & Shield and or other games releasing this Fall.
I just don't think it's a good value for older game's as you can find a lot of these game's discounted for $40 or a little bit less on occasion.
Say I buy 4 vouchers. That’s £168 for 4 game’s priced £50 each. I also get 1000 gold points (£10 cashback).
This is a good point actually. The timing of this announcement before E3 is quite clever, especially with upcoming games like Animal Crossing and Pokemon, which can be more convenient to have installed on your system.Just an FYI (if it wasn’t already known) you can buy as many of these vouchers as you like, I just tested it. This year of 1st party output may end up rivalling 2017 for me.
Yoshi’s Crafted World
Super Mario Maker 2
Fire Emblem Three Houses
Luigis Mansion 3
With maybe 1 or 2 more to be announced at E3. Almost makes up for how barren last year was from them.
You can get it for €99 which with our inflated shop pricing works out to -40% in some cases.
Because I don't want to 'have' to buy one of the expensive games (that's what it forces you to do right?) I want to buy any of the games instead.
That would be an ideal situation but the idea is probably for you to spend more on games. The idea is to encourage you to pick up more games per transaction.I think for gift cards in the US there's a 5-year minimum, but I'm not sure of all the details.
For this, if you just lose the $40 if you don't redeem the second one in time, it's pretty sketchy, even if you have a year. The difference from something like bonus gold coins expiring (i.e. promo credit) is that you pay $100 upfront. Worst case they should just credit that $40 you spent back in eshop credit. You don't lose what you paid, you just lose the $20 discount.
