Nintendo eShop Deals - 12/24: Holiday Sales!

Just received my 2nd code that I ordered at 11AM ET (currently 2:54PM ET) this morning. Instantly received a back-ordered email when it was placed. One of my friends placed an order at the same time and just got theirs as well.

I think if you got the order in before it went "out of stock" you'll be fine. Good luck everyone!

Ordered at 12:20 PM EST via Paypal and was sent a backordered email. My code came at 2:00 PM EST (~1 hour ago) and includes the game with DLC.

 

With the gift card price mistake deal, I noticed I had better success when using PayPal. I recommend using PayPal over a credit card to ensure better/faster service.

I used PayPal this time vs CC on $70 eshop. Took 3hrs (11:45a-2:45p) from backordered email. Full game + DLC, and 230 gold coins.

Ordered a little after noon EST after missing out last night and not seeing it this morning 'til late. Still waiting, but hearing all the success stories has given me hope. I just about 100%-ed the game on Wii U (there was one last pesky gem I gave up on), so if I can't play it on Switch I'll survive. It's a super fun game. I hope you all enjoy it!

I was able to redeem through Nintendo's online portal FWIW. Dunno if it's still working.

Just got my code as well, but can't redeem because of server maintenance. Can't redeem directly through the eshop or on the website.

Ordered at 12:20 PM EST via Paypal and was sent a backordered email. My code came at 2:00 PM EST (~1 hour ago) and includes the game with DLC.

I'd recommend NOT using paypal personally, I still haven't received my refund from that eshop code mistake over a week ago now from trying to check out with them, but did get a refund almost instantly when I used my card instead. That said, seems like the best way to do it is to pay with gift card if you can, that's how I finally got that eshop code, and how I got this one for Toad.

I tried that too but I guess I just missed the servers being taken offline. Thanks, though.

Under eShop status. Will be down for a while...

Yay! Got the code. Now to hope the "server maintenance" isn't a front for Nintendo to change all these codes over to just the DLC (probably not, but it's been a long day and I'm feeling conspiratorial).

Finally got my code after about a 4.5 hour wait only to now be hampered by the server maintenance. Haha

Highly doubt it, the maintenance was already planned before this happened. Plus I don't think they could, because what if there's people who bought legit bundle codes? Don't think they'd know which is which honestly.

 

EDIT: And maintenance seems to be done, just redeemed my code on the website, and it indeed was the full game plus DLC.

This worked for me too and it automatically started downloading on my Switch when it turned on. I was able to find my code at this website after a few hours of waiting for an email and not getting one: https://www.walmart....iverygroup.com/

Ha. I was mostly kidding, but I was glad to read that it was scheduled.

 

Thanks for the heads up that the server maintenance was all done. Got my code to go through and it's the whole darn shebang! I'm thrilled. It's glitches like this that make be grateful to be part of this site. Thanks OP!

Just got my code randomly like 4 hours later. Glad I checked Wario before I headed out or I would have totally missed it

I just redeemed my code, so I guess they are finished with the maintenance.

Redeemed my backordered code and got full bundle + 230 coins. Thanks to op and those who posted with deal updates.

 

Now to complain to Walmart that they charged me $0.29 on a tax free digital download ^^;

Redeemed and all set. This bundle was $1.90 after the value of the gold coins. I had strongly considering buying just the base game for $28 as part of the current eShop sale, too. Thanks everyone.

I too want to thank the thread, and op especially, for this glitch. We had to wait over four hours, but the code arrived and the game is downloading!

Got my code for the bundle after about 6 hours from ordering it. Thanks CAG!
