did you purchase through nintendo.com, or switch eshop? Also, did you have any existing balance? If it's less than $20 would you still get the discount?

I got it working. I got 20 in currency, and it charged me 15 and discounted the 5.

Are you able to do that through nintendo.com, or do you have to go through the eshop to buy credit?

Was it showing you the discounted price at the final checkout page? From what Im seeing on the ehsop checkout page, theres no indication that the discount is being applied.

Says it was saved to my account, so I assume that means I'm eligible?

The discount is AFTER you buy it. I can confirm after buying Setsuna. was 25 during checkout, got an email from paypal saying 20.xx. You're good to go

I'm eligible for offers to dozens of places I never shop, but not this. Thanks, Paypal.

Sorry, can't quote the post, since I don't have enough posts yet, but hope you see this.

I bought something that was $19.99, came over 20 with tax, pretty sure just the transaction has to be $20 or over in order to qualify. I didn't have any eshop balance to go towards the purchase. I bought it with Nintendo(dot)com, but I'm sure it will work on the Switch, unfortunately only way to know if it worked is after you get the receipt.

Thanks. Just added $20 to my wallet through the eShop and got an email for the $5 discount after purchasing it.

Why are some of us not eligible? I wish they could be more clear about this, but I bet they didn't plan on my ilk ever knowing about the deal... EDIT: and (3) receive an authorized email containing the invitation to participate in the offer (eligibility for/those who receive such an email will be determined solely by PayPal)

I got the PayPal email but I can't figure out how to link my PayPal account to Nintendo. When I go to My Nintendo all it says is PayPal - Not Set. Everything is greyed out. I've never used a CC with Nintendo but sheesh they don't make it easy doing business with them.

 

I tried going to the eShop and the only two CC options are Mastercard and Visa. What am I missing?  :bomb:

 

nvm: I found the answer. I need a Nintendo Switch to link PayPal, after that I can use PayPal on either a Wii U or 3DS. I still don't have a Switch, double damn.

Yea it should just be a normal offer on paypal for everybody, they would make way more money

Has anyone who got a "may not be eligible" message tried doing it on the eShop anyways and had success?

Has anyone with an e-shop balance been able to get this to work? Every time I try to check out it wants to deduct from my balance. Paypal isn't even an option.

 

Also, why the <bleep> can't I add multiple items to my cart? I want to get Golf Story and Picross and get the discount. I'd settle for Battle Chef or Puyo Puyo Tetris.

Just go to the eShop store on a computer or tablet and when you're at checkout it'll give you a Paypal option and you can link it from there.

Does this work at eBay for items bought via Nintendo as the seller? I just bought something a few days ago and might complain to CS and see if I can get them to honor my prior purchase.

just curious... did everyone who got the "may not be eligible" warning already connected their paypal accounts to their nintendo eShop account? As that was my case. Would anyone like to try removing their eShop account from PayPal and retry? Revoke it directly from PayPal's side if you're going to try. I' m just wayyy too busy to try.

I just tried it from a computer and tablet and no dice. It won't give the option to link PayPal. Thanks for the idea but from what I read from a Nintendo support search, it looks like it requires a Switch.

I think you have to have the email in your inbox in order to be eligible.


I actually got the email this morning and am not eligible. Wtf.

That's odd, I just randomly put a WiiU game in my cart for checkout and I was able to do it from there. Don't even own a Switch.

No offer for me. I've never used PayPal on my Switch (or Wii U if you could), so maybe that's a factor.

Nvm I screwed up, my bad. I need to read the screens a little better. I went to buy something and chose PayPal, signed in and I clicked on agree and continue and then it linked my PayPal and Nintendo accounts. Now I should be able to buy a $20 gift card for $15. dancing62.gif

So I checked on my computer and tablet and it shows my PayPal account linked to Nintendo but if I go to the eShop on my Wii U and try and buy anything, my only options are still Mastercard and Visa.  :bouncy:

Is there a link where I can buy $20 credit via my laptop? The offer is in my Paypal account, but I can't find where I can actually add the funds, and the only options on my N3DS are Visa and Mastercard...

I was able to buy on my computer via PayPal Super Punch Out - NES but when I go to the eShop on my Wii U it only list MC and Visa as my only options.
