Nintendo has partnered with Post Consumer Brands to offer a succulent giveaway. Starting today you can find codes in specially marked boxes of Post cereal to win one of 500 Nintendo Switch prize packs. The packs include the console as well as the upcoming Switch exclusive Super Mario Odyssey.
“Post Cereals evoke feelings of fun and nostalgia for people of all ages, and those are emotions Nintendo can identify with,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo Senior VP of Sales and Marketing. “Nintendo Switch and Super Mario Odyssey are must-haves for the holidays, and this promotion gives people 500 chances to win them.”
Entry codes can be found among 20 million cereal boxes. Post branded cereal includes Honey Bunches of Oats, Honeycomb, Golden Crisp, and Alpha Bits. Marked boxes with potential codes have a giant Mario and Switch taking up about 1/3 of the front cover.
“Post Consumer Brands continues to prioritize and invest in family and millennial consumers to drive growth across our portfolio of cereal brands,” said Roxanne Bernstein, Post CMO. “Partnering with a highly recognized and family-friendly brand like Nintendo allows us to deliver a special experience to consumers.”
In addition to entries for the Switch prize, Codes can be redeemed for for Platinum Points. Platinum Points are typically used to redeem discount coupons on digital games. You will need a Nintendo Account to redeem Platinum Points.
The Nintendo Switch launched earlier this March. It features full portability and is gradually gaining the usual stellar first-party Nintendo library, such as Splatoon 2 and Mario + Rabbids. It’s also suffered from the typical Nintendo lack of supply versus high demand.
Super Mario Odyssey is the highly anticipated 3D platformer coming October 27. It aims to return to open-world exploration not seen since 2002’s Super Mario Sunshine on the Gamecube.
The Post cereal Nintendo Prize Pack giveaway ends March 31.
