How To Pre-Order The Nintendo Switch Online Service 

Where else but Amazon would you expect to see pre-order sales these days.  So amazon has now posted the pre-order pages for the 12 month and the 3 month individual membership plans. On the Amazon page, you will see that it lists available December 31, 2018.  That is standard operating procedure for Amazon when it does not have an actual office confirmed date of availability.

For those new to Amazon and the Digital Code, when you purchase from Amazon (and the product becomes available), you will receive an email from Amazon listing the code you will enter on your device to activate (or renew) your service.

Final Thoughts 

Since this is a new service, a lot of questions still remain to be answered, however this is Nintendo, with their experience they should be up to speed on Day 1.
