Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Can Be Bought For $40 Only Via Limited-Time Costco Offer

The offer is only viable for Costco members unfortunately.

Story Highlights

  • Costco is selling Nintendo $50 eShop Cards for 40 USD only in a new limited-time offer lasting until 3rd March. 
  • The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom can be purchased for $40 only by using multiple eShop Cards to buy Nintendo Switch Game Vouchers. The vouchers give you additional $5 Nintendo eShop Gold Points, saving additional 10 bucks out of 100.
  • In total, you save $30 when you purchase Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, which costs $70, and purchase another AAA Nintendo entry along with Zelda by utilizing the new offer.
  • The offer is for Costco members in the United States only, and it only allows for two cards to be purchased in a single transaction per user.

The Costco subscribers have an enticing offer waiting for them; the conglomerate is running an attractive limited-time deal, granting eShop cards costing $50 bucks for $40 only in the United States. Two cards can be purchased per user, which will reduce the price of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom by a wide margin.

In layman’s terms, you are paying 40 dollars only for a 70-dollar game, which is among the greatest bang for the buck in recent times. Pocketing two eShop gift cards from the Costco deal gains you $100 worth of Nintendo eShop credit by spending $80 only.

Nintendo Switch game vouchers usually cost $100, and they can be used to buy any two eligible Nintendo Switch entries. Moreover, the vouchers offered by Nintendo also earn you $5 back in the form of Nintendo eShop Gold Points.

So, you can get Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom by spending $40 only because you save $30 after all the savings. At least 130 USD would be spent on buying Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and the other AAA title without the striking deal in the way.

Thus, Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and another AAA Nintendo game can be purchased using a pair of Nintendo Switch Game Vouchers.

Using wits to amass multiple eShop cards together will allow gamers to buy Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and an extra AAA Nintendo title with a lot of savings.

It is worth noting that Nintendo Switch Game Vouchers become useless after a year; it would be wise to decide what games to purchase before obtaining vouchers. 

Sadly, the deal is only available until 3rd March (until the stocks run out) and will not be liable for any non-Costco users. Moreover, the offer is US only since people from outside the United States are unable to access the website at all. The deal can be availed either by visiting a Costco branch in the US or online by visiting the site.

For members that miss the offer, unlimited eShop cards can also be bought usually at Costco, but they will only help you preserve 5 dollars instead of the attractive saving of ten bucks. Furthermore, Costco runs these deals a few times a year, with the last one ending in December 2022.

However, they have become less frequent ever since the Wii U era ended; it is best to take advantage of these offers for Costco members that play Nintendo games. We can expect Costco to bring back the highly economical deal in the future. 

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is a highly awaited AAA Nintendo Switch exclusive entry and the first Nintendo title to cost 69.99 USD dollars. It is the last AAA game to release for Switch, and it adopts a much darker tone, refining the same mechanics to a whole new level. It is slated to release on May 12th, 2023.
