    This thread is for arranging up to 8 of us to get together to make a family group for the Nintendo Switch Online service.

    The family membership is £31.99 for 12 months, and if 8 of us group together we pay £4 (to me via bank transfer only) each instead of £17.99.

    After 12 months I will review the situation to see if Nintendo still allow this family membership, and if so I will happily do this again.

    If you are interested then make sure that your trust is set up and that your Nintendo account is tied to your Switch, and reply to this thread. I will need your email address in order to add you to the family group which will be arranged this via trust.

    Group list:
    1 - Kreeeee
    2 - kinger8938
    3 - montymint
    4 - Huggie86
    5 - Raz
    6 - Bommy
    7 - Taziir
    8 - bailes550


    Reserve list:
    1 - Begbie
    2 - Simmz

    Colour code:
    Red = Trust message sent to request email address
    Yellow = Received Nintendo account email address
    Pink = Family invite sent
    Orange = Family invite accepted
    Green = Payment confirmed

    Once everyone is orange I will setup the family, once everyone is green I will purchase the family plan.

    Mods, please let me know if this is not allowed. I will be receiving money from members but I am not selling anything or making a profit.

    Even if we only get 4 people it's £8 instead of £18 so it might still be worth doing. I'm aiming for 8 though, and if we don't get that then we'll decide from there.

    How would this work with purchases? Do you need a separate account for the family group? I have two accounts on my switch, mines linked to a Nintendo account and my daughter's isn't.

    I signed up already for the month trial and it's all a bit meh tbh

    I don't think so, I think that's the intended use of this family plan.

    You keep your account and all your purchases, you just get online access through being linked to mine. I agree that it's not a great service, but the online member discounts should return that £4 in savings on game purchases and I get to continue playing online.
