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

Possibly. I've never used Paypal for eShop on WiiU/3DS and never got the offer.  Must be for former eShop/PayPal users as an incentive to link Paypal to Switch.

This is the response I got from Nintendo support, so it looks like you can use PayPal on the Nintendo Switch, a computer or tablet as they use a Nintendo Account and not an ID.

"Hello,

Thanks for writing. I'm sorry to inform you, but PayPal can only be used with a Nintendo Account. This means systems that use Nintendo Network IDs, Wii U and 3DS, do not have access to PayPal as a payment option at checkout. I hope this answers your question.

Have a pleasant day now!

Sincerely,

Nintendo of America Inc.

Now the question is, what's the link to load $20 so that we can apply the discount using a computer...

So tried using my Nintendo coins to get Majora's Mask for $24 to go with this offer and apparently My Nintendo rewards don't stack with Paypal.

The only way I know to add eshop credit using a computer through Nintendo is by going through the process of purchasing a game via eshop credit on their website, which prompts you to add eshop credit before finalizing the purchase.

 

So, if you can find a game that's $20 more than your eshop balance, go through the process of purchasing it and then don't finalize the purchase. There could be an easier method, but this is what I've done in the past when I need oddball amounts of credit added to my account.

So if I'm understanding this right, hitting purchase right here on this Theatrhythm transaction page will only add the funds to my account, and not buy the game?  https://i.imgur.com/Evdr61z.png

 

Otherwise I'm not too sure I understand this...

 

EDIT: Ended up just signing into my nintendo account on a friend's switch (connected to my nintendo network and paypal), adding the funds on there, then going back and buying the zelda season pass on my wii u while also having to add an additional $1.64 from my debit card.  Kind of a pain in the ass just to save $5 but this is probably the easiest way if you know someone really close by who owns a switch.
