Nintendo Switch Game Vouchers - What are the best value games to get?

6
Posted 3rd MarEdited by:"stradle"
I have Mario Kart, Zelda Links Awakening and Super Mario Odyssey, but have held off spending these vouchers as I keep seeing some of the games available cheaper as physical copies.

My 2 game vouchers cost me £72 - so essentially I want to know what are the best value games to get at the moment to get the most out my credit, that I could not just go to somewhere else and order cheaper.

Here is the full list including some pre-order options
ec.nintendo.com/GB/…081

Was thinking Breath of the wild and Smash Brothers Ultimate, but was keen to hear thoughts on the other options I should consider.

As another consideration, they expire 27/09/2020, so if anyone knows of any other premium titles coming out later in the year happy to wait.

How did two vouchers cost you $72 when they should cost $84? Did you use Gold Points?

I've only bought a set of Game Vouchers once and used them both on pre-orders (Luigi's Mansion 3 and Animal Crossing New Horizons)

Am I missing something here? What's the point of the vouchers why not just buy the game you want on a card? Not meaning to sound rude genuinely interested

Was CDKeys - eShop credit they were on sale a while back, ordered on the cheap and used to cash in for 2 game vouchers. Was a deal on here a while ago and someone posted this way of using the credit which I did.

It saves money for people that want digital games. A voucher set is $84 (that gets you two games). You can choose from (almost) any first party Nintendo game, including pre-orders. Two games for $42 each or cheaper if you buy credit elsewhere.

I would agree with you that it is pointless to pay full price for the vouchers as they only really give you a minor discount of Nintendo eShop prices which are usually very poor, but it was worthwhile with the route I did in the post above as many of the titles were way cheaper than even buying physical.

But since then some of the titles have been found for roughly the same price as my credit, so that is why I was asking for some advice on some of the titles that are not normally as cheap to buy as Nintendo tend to keep prices high for some premium titles.

Ah I get it I think . So it's not £84 in vouchers as such. You could pick 2 of the £49.99 games and use one of your vouchers for each game and wouldn't have to add the extra £14 quid?
