If you prefer digital games for your Nintendo Switch, you should be happy to hear that the Nintendo Switch Game Vouchers are back. If you didn’t own a Switch last time these vouchers were around, this is how they work. You can purchase two vouchers from the Nintendo eShop for $99.98 and they are redeemable for 12 months from the date of purchase. Each voucher can be used individually. That basically means you can get a pair of $59.99 Nintendo Switch games for $99.98.

This deal is even better if you purchase Nintendo eShop gift cards at a discounted price. Costco often has Nintendo eShop gift cards at a 10% discount, which means you can basically pay $90 for two vouchers. That brings the per-game-price to $45 when using the vouchers.

Nintendo has a restriction of up to eight active vouchers in your account at a time, and you will have to be a Nintendo Switch Online member to purchase them. As an added bonus, you’ll receive My Nintendo Gold Points worth 5% of your total paid amount.

Here is the current list of eligible games for the vouchers as of February 1, 2023. Note that there are some $49.99 titles in the list, which means you aren’t really getting a discount with the vouchers. Keep in mind that in the past, Nintendo added new and future titles to the list, so we do expect Breath of the Wild’s sequel, Tears of the Kingdom, to be part of this promotion at some point. See our list of upcoming video game releases to get an idea of what you may want to save your vouchers for.
