If you’re hoping to trim down some of the additional cost of a Nintendo Switch Online membership, there is good news – Nintendo has confirmed in an official FAQ that My Nintendo members will be able to exchange their amassed Gold Coins towards a paid subscription. The conversion rate is the same as applying Gold Coins to purchases made in the eShop, with 100 Gold Coins equalling $1 (USD).
Nintendo Switch owners on the fence about diving into the upcoming paid online service can also claim a free 7-day trial from the Nintendo eShop tomorrow following the launch of Nintendo Switch Online. If you enjoy the added perks of the service, you can always put some of your hard-earned digital currency towards a paid subscription!
Nintendo Switch Online will launch tomorrow, September 18, following scheduled eShop maintenance which will begin at 5 pm PST.
