Posted 4th Apr
I bought a family membership for my kids last month but It only came with one code. we used it on one console. do I use the same code on other consoles or do I need to generate other codes?

any advice would be great

thanks

No you have to long into the Nintendo account on a computer and from there go to membership and invite the email for the account and they have to accept ^__^

Okay thanks I'm not very good at these things. Will try figure it out
Sadly its not allowing me to add my son to the account I signed up to nintendo membership
Just keeps saying this
"You are already a member of a family group, so you cannot join another family group."

Then you need to log into your sons account and do the same thing but unlink from the previous family group
The nintendo family member ship is on my husbands console. I used my own email address on my sons and set up a kids account for him. Because I've set up a kids account its automatically created a family. Because of this I can not add my sons console to the family membership does anyone know how to override this?

Thanks

It's not letting me unlink it because to do so I would need to delete the child account which I cant do without losing all his data and passes?

Sorry I am not very good with gaming technology

Add your husband to your Family Group accounts.nintendo.com/family


Thanks yes I removed my daughter from my husbands account then added my husband to mine and changed him to admin then added my daughter. I am hoping that means they all now can use the family membership

It doesn't matter who in the Family Group has the Family Membership. As long as one person has it
