Will I be automatically charged when the free period ends on 19th September 2018 and the service officially starts?

No, you will not be automatically charged. In order to use the service, please purchase a Nintendo Switch Online membership.

Can I try Nintendo Switch Online for free?

You can enjoy a 7-day free trial of the Nintendo Switch Online paid membership service! In Nintendo eShop, select the Nintendo Switch Online option on the left navigation to activate your free trial.

Please note: one free trial period available per Nintendo Account. During the free trial, you can use the online play, voice chat via the smartphone app, Save Data Cloud and Nintendo Entertainment System - Nintendo Switch Online services. It’s not possible to purchase Nintendo Entertainment System Controllers during the trial period.

If automatic renewal is set, once your free 7-day trial is over, your membership will be renewed via the automatic purchase of an individual 1-month (30 day) membership. If you do not wish to purchase a membership, you can terminate automatic renewal during the free trial and will not be charged.

If I purchase an additional membership while I am already a Nintendo Switch Online member, what happens to the remaining time I had?

If you purchase an Individual Membership while already in possession of an existing Individual Membership, this will be added to your remaining time. For example, if you have 35 days remaining on an Individual Membership and purchase a 365 day Individual Membership, your remaining time will be extended to 400 days. Remaining time for an account can be increased up to three years. However, you can't combine remaining time from Family Memberships and Individual Memberships.
