I'll hold out until tomorrow to see if the eShop matches the deals, I have some credit to burn.

Grabbed the digital versions of Mario Tennis Aces, and New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, for $40 each on Best Buy. Decent enough prices to warrant not having to wait any longer, and they’ll always be ready to play right away without having to constantly swap out cartridges. Really tempted to do this with digital Super Mario Odyssey, but I already have the starter pack w/the traveler’s guide, lol.


I’ve had the physical copies of Odyssey and Kart since launch but I’m tempted to get the digital copies now just so I can always have them ready. Aside from those two and BOTw, I’m digital all the way with my Switch.

Doesn't seem like Nintendo eShop has the Mario games today for $40 as of yet.

I had those all physical as well. Sold everything off and switched over to digital awhile ago. I dunno why I didn’t just go all digital on the switch in the first place.

Did the sale announcement ever even mention Nintendo? I thought they were all at retailers only.

Yeah I did the same with my PS4 a few years back since those games go on sale pretty quickly. For Nintendo, I think it just seemed cheaper to go with Best Buy's GCU discount since those games rarely go on sale or see price drops. But now I'm just trying to figure out the best place to go to get some money back for these games. I don't really buy much from Gamestop and Best Buy's TIVs are pretty low in comparison.

Gamestop at least is offering an additional $5 for each Switch game, but they don't have the digital sale. If the games go on sale on the eshop, then that is probably the best bet.

 

Right now though, I thought it was just Amazon, Target, BB, and Walmart. Amazon trade in is a consideration, sometimes they way overpay for games.

In case you were expecting it, the Mario deals are not on the eShop. The announcement said as much that they were just putting the codes on sale at various retailers, but that still seems weird to put digital games on sale only at retailers and not the digital storefront they own.

 

If I'm remembering correctly, the Gold Coins you get for a discounted code is the same as what you'd get if you paid $60 on the eShop, right?

I grabbed Odyssey as soon as I saw your post and when I redeemed I got 300 coins. So yeah, same as if you buy full price

While the deal is supposedly until 3/16, I wonder if they just maxed out the number of codes they have to sell that day (if that's even a thing).

I didn't want to chance it. Bought the best buy NSMBU code from BB using $35 cert + $5. Will trade physical into GameStop tomorrow. There's plenty of opportunity to convert that GameStop back.

Yeah I got 300 coins for Mario Party. Not a bad price, and the kids and us will have fun with it.

I can't even find them on Target's website. I have a gift card so would prefer to get one there. Do they have the codes in store?

Really disappointed Amazon sold through their allotment of SMBU digital copies so fast.  I redeemed a $25 Amazon gift card from my Google Crossmedia Panel account and by the time I went to Amazon it was already sold out.   :cry:

I bought SMBU and SMO just now from BB because I am still reeling from Amazon selling out of $29.99 Valkyria Chronicles 4 codes...

Nor are the codes on sale at Gamestop itself, making this sale useless for both my trade-in credit AND my abundance of PUR points.  Should have figured that even when Nintendo had a generous sale, they would find a way to screw it up.

I was gonna grab Mario Tennis as soon as I got out of work and it's sold out at Amazon. I should've just gotten it in the morning.

My Best Buy order for NSMB was canceled within 20 minutes of buying. It’s unavailable on Walmart and Amazon. It also just was never on sale at GameStop. WTF?

because GS was not part of the sale... JUST amazon/walmart/best buy/target. Should read the linked page on nintendo's site.

https://www.nintendo...sales-and-deals

Note that GS is only doing the console deal

 

Now the fact that they are "sold out" of the digital codes is just pure BS.

I was all digital from day one on the Vita- it just made so much sense to. Same with the switch- with the game cards being so tiny and the system being portable, it just makes sense. Having GCU run out makes even more sense. Sold off or gave away all my PS4 games as well and repurchased the ones I really wanted to keep during digital sales.

I'd recommend people keep trying the next week. Considering that the sale is supposed to run from 3/10-16, it would be pretty crappy of them to only set aside enough codes to last for about 12 hours.

Though maybe not surprising.

So starlink digital deluxe for $40 worth it? The additional Star Fox content has me intrigued.

Honestly you get enough with the $30 edition that I am not 100% sure you need to spend another $10. However, the extra $10 has the only characters I really like in the game, so take that for what its worth.

Yeah it's really sounding like these companies were extremely unprepared for this sale. Hope this works out for you man!

And $250 just spent in mere seconds, got up at 5am yesterday and picked up all of the Mario sale on Amazon and the Starlink deluxe game from the eshop. Yay for being a CAG!?!?

I placed an order at BB just before midnight last night.  It was fulfilled around 2:30AM... so it doesn't seem to be a problem on BB's end (or if it was, they fixed it between your post and my order).
