Trade In Your Switch Online Subscription For A Family Plan

The service will be coming into effect on 1 October.


If you’ve got a friend, spouse or sibling who’s picking up a Switch Lite at the end of the month, you’ll soon be able to trade in any existing time on your own Switch Online subscription towards a family plan.

If you’ve got an Individual Membership, this should be a great way to get the new additions to your inner Switch circle battling it out with you on Splatoon 2 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and save yourselves a bit of cash to boot!

There’s no specifics as to what kind of discount will be on offer as yet, but with the service going live on 1 October, we shouldn’t have too long to find out.

Nintendo of Europe announced the scheme over on Twitter with the following message:

“Starting 01/10, you’ll be able to use the remaining days of your Nintendo Switch Online Individual Membership as a discount when purchasing a Family Membership! More details, such as discount rates, will be available on our website at a later date.”

There’s no word yet as to whether or not players in other territories will be able to take advantage.

The Family Membership is already fantastic value for money, and with the recent addition of Super Nintendo games to the service, it’s becoming even more of a bargain.
