Update [Mon 24th Jan, 2022 00:00 GMT]: There's one week remaining on this offer - so grab it while you can if you are eligible.

Original article [Mon 27th Dec, 2021 05:00 GMT]: If you are a My Nintendo member located in North America, then you might be one of the eligible users who can currently redeem a free Nintendo Switch Online trial.

It'll last up to seven days and will cost you zero - yes, that's right zero - Platinum Points. This is a "limited time" offer, so get in quick. Nintendo is encouraging users via social media to redeem it so they can then participate in the special Mario Kart 'Holiday Fun Run' taking place in this region.

Grab your own free trial here. And here's the fine print:

- The Free trial cannot be used with Nintendo Accounts that already have an active Individual Membership or Family Membership.

- Your free trial will automatically convert into a monthly membership at the end of the trial period, unless you turn off automatic renewal before the end of the trial. Upon conversion of your free trial to a full membership, and on an ongoing basis thereafter, we will charge you the membership amount unless and until you turn off automatic renewal. Credit card/PayPal account required for users age 18 and up. Terms apply. You can check your membership status here.

- The code is valid until 2/6/2022 at 23:00 (Pacific Time).
