I am a member of a VERY elite and exclusive organization. Yes ladies and gentlemen. I am a Discover Card "Member".
While visiting the Nintendo Eshop, I decided I wanted to get a new game: Super Mario Odyssey.
Clickety, click and off I go to their shopping cart.
Suddenly my heart sinks. My pulse rises. I can't believe my eyes. Nintendo does not accept Discover Card!
Rather than just closing my browser then and there. Grabbing my Switch and tossing it in the trash. I realized this must be some sort of mistake? Clearly. I felt discriminated against, personally attacked even.
Breathe for a moment. Settle down. There must be some way around this. My very first thought was Amazon.
Well, a moment later and I'm looking at these gift cards. My only worry was how long it would take to receive the codes. How would I receive the codes. Etc.
I proceeded. Bought a $50 and a $10 in order to buy the game in question. Went through Amazon checkout with my Discover Card in hand. Within one minute I had everything I needed to place my order with Nintendo. The codes for the eCash were provided instantly and I didn't have to wait at all.
Amazon saved the day, and I didn't have to resort to using a different card.
