My Nintendo members can get 7-day free trial of Nintendo Switch Online

If you're on the fence about using Nintendo Switch Online, now you can start a special seven-day free trial.


There are many Nintendo Switch users out there who may not be Nintendo Switch Online members. Those people may not be interested in the console's online element. However, what if they just want a taste of it? If they're members of the My Nintendo rewards program, they can now get a seven-day free trial.

Rewards members will find the seven-day free trial available on the My Nintendo website. This reward is available from now through November 2, 2020, at 8AM PT and is only redeemable once. Current Nintendo Switch Online members can't extend their active membership with this. This is purely for newbies. If you do decide to take advantage of this, the free trial converts to a recurring one-month auto-renewing membership, which runs for $3.99 USD per month.

If you're on the fence about Nintendo Switch Online, there are a few perks beyond just being able to utilize online multiplayer. There are also a few Nintendo Switch Online exclusive rewards, such as currency for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, as well as some exclusive games, like Tetris 99 and Super Mario Bros. 35. If you want to give the latter a shot, be sure to check out our beginner's guide. Heck, we have a beginner's guide for Tetris 99, too, if you want to see that.

If you opt to pick up this Nintendo Switch Online free trial from My Nintendo, the code will be active until November 9. You'd better use it now because this is the night that Steve and Alex come to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
