So if me and the kids rarely play separately at the same time, there’s no need for a family memberahip right?

Each account that wants to play online needs one, even on the same console

Ok my kids are young so they don’t need their own accounts. Thanks

Although this is the same price as an individual account. Do individual accounts go on sale?

Keep in mind the family plan requires that the main account has a credit card saved or is tied to a paypal account.  I have neither on my account because I prefer just buying eshop credit.

Tetris 99 comes with a 12-month individual membership if you want to go that route.

I have a 12-month membership already. Was thinking ahead.

I hope they do a new game and membership bundle like Tetris 99 every year. That's the best way to get a membership especially if you get it on sale.

Family accounts allow you to add up to 8 users to the same subscription.  I have myself, both of my daughters, and a few friends / co-workers on mine.  If you have even one friend you can split this with, it's a money saver.

Not sure why buying it with Tetris 99 is such a good idea. $30 for a physical game (that’s free online) and includes $10 of DLC. That is exactly the same as retail price for the DLC and 1 year of online.

If I want to add friends who all have active individual memberships already, is that possible? Would love to get them all a free year once there's expires.

I bought one of these memberships last Black Friday, and I have never used it.  Is there anything worth playing online on the Switch?

NES and SNES games are the most compelling thing to me.

Did you buy family or individual? I bought two games that came with individual memberships in the last few months but didn't redeem them because I realized I need family membership to cover my kid too. Oops.

It was the same price last year, so I assume it was an individual membership.  I live alone, so I wouldn't need a family plan.  But I already have other ways to play NES and SNES games too...which CheapyD would prefer that I not speak about per the terms of service.   8-[

I mean, same, but I don't think the game and watch is really _that_ taboo ;-)

You can never have enough ways to play old games.

There's also Splatoon 2 and Kart 8 which are the big ones. I don't own either on NSW because of the WiiU but... Well, I'm still buying 3 years of the family membership anyway.

Do I have to cancel Automatic Renewal to enter the code? Not seeing anywhere on the website to enter it.

 

Definitely in for 3 years worth. If you have 8 people, it comes out to $2.50 per person.

It ain't easy to find.  Looks like mine expires in a few weeks so this sale will be perfect.

 

On your account on the web site, go to "Shop Menu".

Then "Your Subscriptions"

Then "Check Nintendo Switch Online Membership Status"

Then "Renew".

Code entry is towards bottom of page.

 

I think the online sub is needed for Animal Crossing and Pokemon Sword, right?  If so, we use it constantly.  I've got 3 kids that play AC online and my son plays a lot of Pokemon online.  I like that you can add the extra people and they can use their own Switch unlike the Xbox Live stuff where you have to have a designated home console.

Do we know if this is being offered in store as well?

 

I'd rather buy a few physical cards -- those are better for gifting.

In for two individual orders for two more years as I had just auto renewed in late September.

 

Got both emails from Target in minutes with the codes and both redeemed fine. My friends and family are all set until 9/26/23 :bouncy:

Yeah I just ordered another one.  Mine was set to expire mid-Dec so I will probably get a 3rd code and save it till then to extend to Dec. 2023!

 

Yes, emails are almost instantaneous - very nice.
