Excellent - I picked up two more years of NSO for the two switches (accounts) in my household, for essentially the price of one normal family plan year.

Yep. Just have to place three orders, which I did.

You don't even have to change payment methods or check out as guest. Why even bother to limit to 1 per person at that rate?

What's so special about this? It's just getting access to online play and the small list of NES and SNES games correct? Cloud back up saves too I suppose. I don't play online and have most of the games already. To share this, I give my password to family or friends? Can I game share with all of them too? Like digital games we've all bought?

You can add them to a "family group" on the My Nintendo website. You need to send them a code, which they'll get in an email, and then they can click the link to join your family.

 

If you get 8 people, the $20 family plan comes out to $2.50 per person, which is a stellar deal.

You can't "gameshare" -- you do all get access to any Nintendo Switch Online goods, which includes:

  • NES games
  • SNES games
  • Tetris
  • Super Mario Bros. 35

Gameshare can only work when you use primary and non-primary consoles, as explained here: https://en-americas-...nintendo-switch (I haven't tried this)

 

NSO family plan let's multiple people have access to NSO features, such as playing games online, cloud backups, and NES/SNES library. One person is the family plan holder and they can add an additional 7 NNIDs to the group. My sister added me to her family group after my individual NSO expired. She needed a family plan because her family of 4 each play Animal Crossing online. Since she still had 4 slots open, I asked to use one of the leftover slots rather than buy an individual plan again.

 

Btw if anyone is curious (because we were confused when we first got NSO), even if you share a single Switch with your family, each person needs their own NNID and family group slot to play online.

Considering the way ( I think) animal crossing works, does that mean she has 4 switches?! Baller.

She wishes :P

 

Her family of 4 shares a single Switch. Each family member has their own Switch profile and NNID. They all live in the same Animal Crossing town as the game only allows you one town per Switch, each person with their own house.

 

As they each have an NNID with online access, they come up as separate people on my friends list, both on the Switch home menu and in AC's in-game friends list.

 

Probably sounds confusing to read, but makes sense once you live it.

No I understand. AC only allows one island per switch. Which is why I thought she had 4 of em.

LOL, not really (being a baller I mean). Having multiple Switch Lites in a household is no different than having multiple DS/3DS before.

 

My daughter is in law school. She has a Switch Lite just to play AC since the GC version was her favorite game growing up.  I got it for her as a present for her birthday early in 2020.  And now that she's actually at school (though not AT school if you know what I mean), it's been nice.  Then we got my youngest a Switch lite as a pandemic present.  So now all 4 of us (my son and I share one AC game/Switch) can play together.  My older son (in college) also bought a Switch with his own money along with Animal Crossing but he thought it was boring and didn't play after the first week - despite him also being obsessed with it as a kid.  That's 5 of us just in my family that have needed online features at least a little.  Plus my other son plays Pokemon Sword all the time and you need to be online for all the raids.  So the family membership has been awesome for us - even though I don't think anyone plays the Mario/Tetris game or the NES/SNES stuff.  And we even have a few slots left too ;).

It does appear so, yeah.  I had a hard time even finding it now and when I did there's no add to cart button - can only add it to my "registry".

 

I never got around to ordering my 3rd year (that I'd have to wait till mid-Dec to redeem).  Oh well, I'm sure I'll be able to find another discounted family membership before Dec. 2022.

 

It is out of stock at Amazon (not sure - maybe they price matched it), and is full price at Best Buy.  Can't even find it at Walmart - their site is such a freaking mess.

Just as an FYI

This is still available in store right now if they have the cards. Just picked up a couple at the local store.

Tag in store says good through 11/30

I mean, is this worth picking up if I don't play online and already have most of those games already? I guess I can hope more games and other systems can add it to the online but I just don't know me and my friends would even use it.
