Nintendo Switch Game Vouchers: how they work and eligible games

After disappearing from the store in 2019, Nintendo Switch Game Vouchers have returned to the eShop. These vouchers are a great value to those who are active Switch users and purchase a lot of their games digitally via the Nintendo online shop. By purchasing a voucher, players are able to browse a constantly expanding selection of Switch games, including many high-profile first-party titles such as Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, Splatoon 3, and The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, and use their vouchers to purchase games. In addition, they can also be used to preorder upcoming titles.

If you never had the chance to use them before, here’s everything you need to know about Nintendo Switch Game Vouchers.

How Nintendo Switch Vouchers work

Nintendo Switch Game Vouchers are available for purchase on the official Nintendo website in pairs for a total of $100. However, they are only available to current subscribers of the Nintendo Switch Online service. Once purchased, you can redeem each voucher for a digital game currently available via the catalog. Considering almost every game on that list retails for $60, you could potentially save $20 by purchasing vouchers rather than buying two titles individually.

Once purchased, Nintendo Switch Game Vouchers are redeemable for up to 12 months, so you are free to hold on to one or both until a game that catches your eye enters the catalog. You can hold up to a maximum of eight vouchers per account at any time.
