Nintendo Switch Contest

Every once in a while, a contest or opportunity arrives in my email that I just have to share with you. As some of  you know, Nintendo holds a particularly large spot in my heart. Some of my earliest memories are of gaming as a family and it’s a tradition I have passed on to my kids. The most common Nintendo of Canada question I get is: “Where do I get a Nintendo Switch before Christmas?”. Turns out Post Canada is offering a great way to get one. From now until January 31, 2018 at Noon EST, you can enter to win one of 60 Nintendo Switch Prize Packs, consisting of a Nintendo Switch system and the Super Mario Odyssey game. Here’s how.

Nintendo Switch Giveaway

Entering the Nintendo of Canada giveaway is easy. This holiday, PINs can be found inside 1 million specially-marked Post cereal boxes, including Honey Bunches of Oats, Honeycomb, Sugar Crisp, Alpha-Bits and Shreddies. Each PIN is not only an entry to win 1 of 60 prize packs but also can be redeemed for a reward of 50 My Nintendo Platinum Points. The My Nintendo Platinum points can, in turn, be redeemed for select downloadable rewards through the My Nintendo rewards program. (A Nintendo Account is required to receive and redeem My Nintendo Platinum Points).

A huge thanks to Nintendo of Canada for sending this opportunity my way. Now head straight to the grocery store and start collection those pins!
