Can you buy more than one set of tickets?
You can buy up to eight. Not sure if thats 8 vouchers or 8 pairs tho... Apparently they will be adding more titles as they are released tho. See my original post I updated it to include a list of frequently asked questions to Nintendo about the promotion.

Warm deal at most digital no resell/trade value, then some retailers might have better deal during certain promotions. The eligible list games is mehhh...
Yeah. Nintendo games hold their value insanely well. I almost always go physical unless it is something I will replay to death (Monster Hunter).

I think it's eight vouchers, so 4 pairs. Couple that with the newegg 10% eshop cards deal a few days ago, and it's a decent bundle for new releases. Now to find some digital games that are certain keepers...
Steam: Sir Boors
PSN: Sir_Boors

It's a great time to be a nerd.

Thanks.

Just bought a pair for Fire Emblem and Astral Chain.

Will wait till E3 to see what else will be put up and will likely get another pair for Link's Awakening and whatever games appears at E3.

full price game 79.99 x 2 = 159.98
159.98 * 4% tax = 166.38

so roughly $165

You are right. For some reason I thought it was only 4%.

As for me, I'm going to wait until closer to the last day to see if there are additional games that get added. For the games announced, I'm looking at SMM2 and the MUA3.

Nice yah I’m waiting till E3 before ordering these, it could be a bit of a gamble to plan for full year ahead, especially with game delays similar to Metroid Prime 4 or Bayonetta 3... I’d keep a buffer game to buy in the situation where your vouchers are going to expire. In that instance it’s better to bank on E3 promotions from Walmart for $48-59 :-) tho being forced to use a voucher is what Nintendo is counting on so best to be conservative with the voucher purchases :-) Waiting till E3 or closer to Mario Maker 2 releases before grabbing one of these ;-) Hoping they give release dates/windows for Pokémon and Links Awakening and Luigi’s Mansion etc :-) Really tho Nintendo is banking on people with vouchers set to expire being forced to use theirs so they don’t lose them. Honestly I’d much rather prefer they just give us an automatic 20% discount for Online members buying digital copies :-)

Decent deal but prefer to get physical copies at Shoppers with stacked 20x points 20 percent off even if I have to wait a bit.

Actually fairly hot if you bought discounted nintendo money such as the recent $58 for $70. That means 2 games for ~$116 tax in vs retail at $180.80 so roughly 36% off.

Look at the box art!
They removed the picture to show the regular one now, no 12 month free.

But on nintendo website there is a bundle for digital, either 79.99 for the game or 89.99 for game and 12 months online.

Not sure if it's just for digital
