Nintendo’s Switch Game Vouchers Expire Soon, But I Wish They’d Come Back

It seems like a lifetime ago now, but last summer, Nintendo offered a nice–and all-too-brief–game voucher program for Nintendo Switch Online members. Subscribers could purchase a pair of vouchers for $100 USD and redeem those for select Nintendo-published games from the Switch Eshop, saving up to $20 off of their regular combined price–a nice chunk of change considering how rarely Nintendo drops the price of its titles, particularly digital versions, which seldom go on sale even when their physical counterparts are discounted at other retailers.

Of course, if you only purchased one set of vouchers, then the program was a bit of a wash as your savings would amount to the cost of a Switch Online subscription (and you could often find physical copies of some of the eligible titles at an even steeper discount on Amazon or at another retailer). If you were already a subscriber, however, it was a tempting perk, especially if you preferred to buy games digitally. Moreover, you weren’t required to use both vouchers immediately, so you could save them for upcoming titles and snag Nintendo’s newest releases effectively for $10 off.

Unfortunately, the voucher program was short-lived. The last day you could purchase vouchers was July 31, 2019–a little over two months after the promotion began. Any vouchers you bought would also only be valid for one year from the date of purchase, which means if you snapped some up last July and have been hanging on to them since, as I have, then you only have a few days left to redeem them before they expire.
