Nintendo tends to think outside the box, which is why some players are having trouble wrapping their heads around the new Nintendo Switch Game Vouchers promotion. Intended as a way for players to pick up new Switch titles with a discount, these new Game Vouchers allow players to purchase two games for $100. However, only certain games are eligible, and there are a few rules worth considering. Here's how the Nintendo Switch Game Voucher promotion works and a list of the games that can be purchased using Switch Game Vouchers.
How Nintendo Switch Game Vouchers work
In a nutshell, the Nintendo Switch Game Voucher promotion allows players to purchase two Switch games for just $100. Purchase of a Game Voucher enables gamers to pick up "two eligible digital games" of their choosing from the list of titles featured below.
It is worth mentioning that users must have an active Nintendo Switch Online membership in order to be eligible for the promotion. Fortunately, subscriptions are cheap, and there are even ways that users can get free Nintendo Switch Online access with a Twitch Prime membership.
Nintendo says that "[by] redeeming these vouchers, users are saving up to $19.99 on the combined suggested retail price of two games. Vouchers are redeemable for one year from the date of purchase and don't have to be used at the same time."
Given that most of the games are first-party, and with consideration that Nintendo doesn't typically offer deep discounts like a lot of other digital distribution platforms, the new Switch Game Vouchers make for a good deal.
