Ooh, good catch, OP!

 

Not to get greedy, but does anyone know of coupons or offers this could stack with?

I will want to get Phoenix Wright when I get a 3DS ... do these ever go for a higher % off? Probably should just get one at this sale.

The last two times they had this offer it was available online as well.

 

Going to pick up another one of these, there's been more eShop games that I've been interested in than I was expecting so I'm starting to run low already.

I still have an unused $35 card from the last sale, but I might pick up a $20 or another $35 one to stockpile. Thanks, OP! :D

Thanks OP! With the dozens of eShop games hitting Wii U and 3DS over the next 60 days, I'll need to pick up another 2 $50 cards. Love me some eShop titles! Shovel Knight, Art of Balance U, Fast Racing Neo, Mighty No 9, Shantae Half Genie Hero, ReVeN, Scram Kitty and His Buddy On Rails, Wooden Sensei... yeah, that's what's up. 

 

In fact, I've still got $165 eShop balance and 2 unused $50 eShop cards from the last time Best Buy had this sale. I go through eShop money quick, and with GBA games hitting Wii U this April, I'm gonna burn through it even faster. Might be time to just plop down for 6 of these bad boys and get myself set for the next couple years of indies/VC releases.

I've had an unredeemed $50 eShop card for quite a while now. I'm dubious about tying anything financial to my console rather than my account, especially a portable console. With the new Nintendo accounts, are purchases still tied to consoles or are they now tied to accounts? I'd love to be excited about this...but I won't be until Nintendo gets its act together.

I was really rethinking my decision to buy a bunch of cards last time but I ended up blowing through that balance in no time.

 

Never thought I'd be down to buy even more cards.

 

These are too good to pass up, glad there's another sale.  20% off is a pretty damn good discount for digital stuff that potentially can have even more discounts from the publishers.

I still have tons of credit from the December sales, as I figured we may never see 20% discount on essentially "cash" (if you were planning to buy stuff digitally, anyways) again.  Probably won't add to the unredeemed cards unless they throw in another GC with $100 purchase deal again.  That was insane! :lol

 

With the new Nintendo accounts, are purchases still tied to consoles or are they now tied to accounts?

NNIDs should be used to tie games to an account on the next consoles.  They're still tied to the hardware/account now.  If you lose your system, contact Nintendo, and they may be able to transfer it just over the phone.  If not, filing a police report for lost property and sending that to Nintendo will get you access to your games back (no saves, though).

Was just realizing yesterday that I had redeemed and spent nearly $100 worth of eShop credit from the last time they did this and needed more..

No these never go higher than this off and BB has pretty much been the only retailer to ever discount them. I think Target did once and only on the small amounts, not all.

Excellent. Will get at least another $50 card. That Inazuma 11 game is calling me, and Pokemon Trozei comes out next month.

:( if only they'd give better eshop sales on non-shovelware, indie and old school games. I'm tired of trine 2, pacman and the ghostly adventure and mighty switch force going on sale every other week. >{ I want the AAA titles on sale.
