How Long do Nintendo Switch Game Vouchers Last?

Nintendo is only selling Nintendo Switch Game Vouchers until July 31, 2019. Once you’ve purchased them however, you’ll have a full year to use them. It’s worth picking them up then, if you plan on getting any first-party Nintendo games via the eShop over the next year.
