Q: For some reason I can't add this to my shopping cart, it only gives me an option of adding to a registry, why is this happenning?

submitted by Adrian - 4 years ago
  • A: They have them in stock in the stores, and it uses the same system as online (the cards in stores don’t have codes on them). They clearly aren’t “out of stock”. Whoever told you that is lying to you.

    submitted bysdw - 4 years ago
  • A: Apparently it is "out of stock" according to the guy I chatted with through Help/Contact Us. Makes no sense how a digital download is out of stock but I guess they only sold a limited amount and decided to remove the "Add to Cart" button instead of putting "Out of Stock" on the webpage for whatever reason.

Q: can I use this in canada device or location don't matter?

submitted by bb_dd - 4 years ago
  • A: Hi, bb_dd! Regarding your question about the Nintendo Switch Online Family Membership 12 Month (Digital): It does matter, but codes are locked to North America as a region, so codes for Mexico, US, and Canada should be in one region so it will work! If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact MyTGTtech at 877-698-4883 every day, between 7am-11pm CST.

Q: My son has a Nintendo switch lite and if I purchase this will he be able to play and download games

submitted by Jacquelyne - 5 years ago
  • A: Well actually this membership is just to unlock things such as being able to play with other online users, such as his friends, and backup his data just incase anything happens to the switch lite. You do not actually need a membership to play and download games. You can do this without a membership at all for free, as long as you pay for the game. If you were meaning to play with friends and backup his progress on games, then yes. However this is a family pass, and if it is just him I would suggest getting the single pass. But all in all no you do not need this to be able to play and download games you can do this for free. I hope this helps!

    submitted byBrycen - 4 years ago
  • A: Hi, Jacquelyne! Regarding your question about the Nintendo Switch Online Family Membership 12 Month (Digital): That's absolutely correct, he will be able to do both! All that is required is having a Wi-Fi connection for internet access. If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact MyTGTtech at 877-698-4883 every day, between 7am-11pm CST.

Q: Is the family subscription for multiple switches?

submitted by Hunter - 5 years ago
  • A: The users don't need to be on the same switch to use the nintendo membership. The person who bought the membership doesn't need to have a profile on the switches either. As long as you register the profiles as a family on the nintendo site, it will work

    submitted byemily - 5 years ago
  • A: Hi, Hunter! Regarding your question about the Nintendo Switch Online Family Membership 12 Month: Yes. Nintendo accounts linked with different switch systems can also be added as a Family member. If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact MyTGTtech at 877-698-4883 every day, between 7am-11pm CST.

Q: I purchased this for my kids and we were excited to set it up today- tried putting in the code and keep getting an error message that ‘the code has already been redeemed’. I don’t understand- is there a glitch or am I doing something wrong? Please help.

submitted by momom - 3 years ago
  • A: Hi, momom! Regarding your question about the Nintendo Switch Online Family Membership 12 Month (Digital): If you are able to play games online and the like then it would be accepted, though if there is some issue with the code after speaking with Nintendo and ensuring the membership isn't already registered I would recommend getting in touch with Target.com online orders department at 1-800-591-3869.

Sandra - 6 months ago, Verified purchaser
I bought this thinking it was going to work for my kids switch. They each have one and I put the code on my son’s switch and it worked on his but when I try to put it on my daughter’s switch it didn’t work on hers. I don’t know if I did it right or they just plain stole my money for just the membership to just work on one switch. Just disappointing.

The activation code needed to use this card is printed on the receipt. Without the receipt the card is totally useless. Neither Target nor Nintendo will do anything to help you.

Got one from the store the other day. Worked great just make sure you save the receipt. My code was printed on the bottom. If you buy online they send to your email so this doesn’t apply.

So many NES & SNES Games to play with subscription - Great Value

5 out of 5 stars
D - 3 years ago, Verified purchaser
Nintendo Online Membership is a Great Value. It offers a lot of NES & SNES games to play right from the start. along with online play & save data backups. If your just getting a switch for the first time and like the older games nintendo offered for the NES & SNES this service will have you playing games for 100's of hours without having to spend so much on additional game purchases right away as the newer games add up if you want a couple. The online service it self seems to do better if you have a very strong wifi signal. And the Save Data backup is a nice feature to have in case a game glitches out or you want to access your save files on another switch console.

This page doesnt have an add to cart button, however if you use the search bar and type Nintendo Switch Online it allows you to add to your cart. Digital code only, sent through your email address.

I like everyone else was looking for the Black Friday price online. If you want it go in the store, the cards for family memberships don’t have scratch off codes like the individual membership cards. When you buy it, the cashier hands you your receipt with the code on it.

Awful that you cannot purchase online during a global pandemic. Nor can you do drive up for the physical card. Unsafe! I’ll buy from Nintendo.

For those wondering how to buy this, I was able to get one in-store today for the Black Friday price and they had plenty left. Great deal for a family membership, but it is super inconvenient to not be able to purchase online.

Extremely quick delivery by Target. Got it at @19.99. Pretty sweet deal to share with 7 others. Can stack membership for 3 years at these cheap rates. Also, need to add your card details and turn on auto renewal in your nintendo account for these digital codes to work.

Nintendo Switch Family Plan Code - Target

5 out of 5 stars
Thumbs up graphic, would recommend
DogLoverAtTarget - 4 years ago
Excellent value, can add all your family to this plan. Numerous people can access the online store for Nintendo. You just can't use it all at the same time. Still a good value, less than a price of the popular titles. Will need internet / Wifi access to use this. Can add numerous people if you're the main account holder. Was able to get a code within 2 hours of requesting on a weekend, so great value.
