Hello, I recently bought a digital $50 eshop gift card and received the code through email. However, the code does not seem to work. Hoping we can figure this out, thanks.

I ordered a Nintendo eShop card about an hour ago (https://www.bestbuy.com/site/nintendo-nintendo-eshop-50-gift-card-digital/5900200.p?skuId=5900200) and attempted to load it into my Nintendo account but was given the message "The download code you entered was not recognized. Please check it and try again." Neither clicking on the Nintendo Switch icon and typing in my Nintendo Network password nor typing it in on my Nintendo Switch manually resolved this issue. Thank you

Purchased a digital $50 eShop code this morning, and everytime I try to redeem it on Nintendo's site it just errors out. Error says
"Error Code 9001-0050 The download code you entered was not recognized. Please try again later"
Was I given a bad code?

There is so much content available through Nintendo’s eShop, you must feel like a kid in a candy store when getting ready to use your eShop gift cards!
While we’re unable to assist with redemption issues on the eShop, we have seen a few of these issues pop up over the last day. In most instances, it sounds like it may have been a temporary issue, and the cards are now redeeming fine. If you are still encountering issues, I would recommend contacting Nintendo support here for more assistance.
