Tired of paying full price for Nintendo eShop gift cards? Here’s a nifty trick that will give you $5 upfront and up to 10% off of your future purchases. I’ve saved over $200 from buying eShop gift cards this way just over the past year.
It’s a great way to save some cash on your eShop purchases, especially if you play a game like Warframe or Smite. These eShop gift cards can be used to purchase platinum in Warframe and gems in Smite. Eying a cosmetic item you want but don’t want to spend the full amount? Save $5 by signing up for Raise.com and buying a Nintendo eShop gift card through them.
How To Get Cheap Nintendo eShop Gift Cards
First you’ll need to sign-up for the gift card reselling website, Raise.com. The website regularly offers Nintendo eShop gift cards in varying denominations for up to 10% off. People buy these gift cards when they’re on mega sale and then offer them for sale on Raise.com, so you can get a good deal no matter when you’re shopping.
Raise.com also has an affiliate program that pays out $5 to the person signing up and $5 to the person who referred, so it’s a win-win situation for us both.
You’ll earn $5 towards your first purchase and I’ll get $5 to continue covering quality Nintendo games for the site.
Raise.com will ask for some verification information to make sure you’re not a scammer and you actually own the debit or credit card you intend to use, but after that you can make multiple purchases. They often run deals for an extra percentage off certain categories or site-wide.
You could save $5 plus up to 14% off your first gift card purchase if you buy one during a sale.
I’ve started using this method to buy all of my eShop credit and I have not yet had a problem with a code not working. The site has a one-year money back guarantee on all of their cards, so in the event that you do get a dud, you’re covered by their site policy.
A cursory scroll through my Raise.com account shows I’ve bought 12 eShop cards from Raise since December 2017 in varying monetary amounts. They have all been perfect, so try this tip if you’re looking to save a little bit extra when eShop deals come around.
Raise eShop discounts vary depending on the person selling the card and if any promotions are going.
