“A day late and A free game”

PJ R.
2/19/15

Pre-ordered Mario Kart 8 from them last year. I recieved an email a couple of days before to say that it might not arrived on time. I then recieved an email the day before release explaining that it would definitely not arrive on time and was given a digital copy of the game there and then. 2 days later, the day after release, my physical copy arrived in the post. Nintendo were also doing a deal at the time were if you bought mario kart you got a free game, as I now had 2 copies or mario kart I was able to claim 2 free games, I then sold my physical copy of mario kart on eBay for 5 quid less than I sold it for. Digital Mario kart 8 a day early + digital monster hunter 3 + digital Mario bros U all for a grand total of £5

“Don't buy from Nintendo”

Tessa V.
3/10/21

I deleted my account mistakenly, thinking it was just my online account. Nintendo did not respond for months and then refused to do anything. They refused a refund even though I sent receipts and wouldn't even give a proper apology. I have lost £100s. I have read other reviews with similar stories, they do not care about their customers and are happy to lose them and hoard their money. Please don't buy from this company. The customer service were quite petty in their response. Many times they had said "we're sorry you feel like this". When I pointed out how long it had taken to respond and that this was not a proper apology they responded "we did apologize". This is incredibly unprofessional and rude. I have attached this below.

Tip for consumers:
Don't delete your account, it makes your switch useless. Unfortunately this is not clear enough.

Products used:
I bought a Nintendo switch and some games. I had no problems with these until I mistakenly deleted my account. Nintendo do not have good customer service, it is unprofessional and often they refuse to help, refund, compensate or give a real apology. Their products are very expensive and it is unfair to do this to people.
