Want to win a Nintendo Switch, but you aren’t able to (or don’t want to) pony up the $300 to get one? Well, why not start blowing all your hard-earned money on cereal for a slim chance to win one? According to Nintendo “This fall, fans can enter codes found in specially marked packages of Post cereals for a chance to win one of 500 Nintendo Switch Prize Packs, consisting of a Nintendo Switch system and the Super Mario Odyssey game.”
Why not, everybody loves Nintendo, and everybody loves cereal? “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 of America’s Senior Vice President 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.”
And yes, as we reported earlier, you read that correctly. Bowser is now working for Nintendo. We can’t make this stuff up, folks. So, if you’re willing to take your chances on a promotion run by Bowser, you can potentially find codes in Post cereals, such as Honey Bunches of Oats, Grape Nuts (every kids’ favorite), Honeycomb, Golden Crisp, Alpha-Bits, as well as Malt-O-Meal cereals, including Honey Graham Toasters, Coco Roos, and Marshmallow Mateys. If you ask me, I suggest you eat at your own risk, who knows what Bowser put in there.
Even if you don’t win the grand prize, each code from a Post box can be redeemed for My Nintendo Platinum Points (Nintendo Account required), and Malt-O-Meal codes can earn you a downloadable wallpaper. Full rules (like Bowser ever follows rules) can be found at http://postconsumerbrands.com/nintendo if you’re interested.
