How to sub for free with twitch prime?
An Amazon Prime membership offers several benefits, one of which is a free Twitch Prime membership. Here’s how to link your accounts and get all the benefits of Twitch Prime for free.
Twitch Prime is a premium experience on the video-game streaming service that’s included with an Amazon Prime membership. Twitch Prime includes bonus games, exclusive in-game content, and more.
For many people, the most valuable benefit of a Prime membership is the free Twitch channel subscription that comes with it. This benefit directly supports your favorite streamer. Plus, you can subscribe again (for free) every month, as long as you have an active Amazon Prime membership linked to your Twitch account.
Visit the Twitch Prime Guide FAQ page for the full list of benefits.
To gain access to a free Twitch Prime membership, you must link your Amazon Prime account and Twitch.tv accounts. To do so, head over to Amazon Twitch Prime.
Click “Sign In” in the top-right corner, and then type your Amazon Prime account login information.
After you log in to your Amazon account, click “Link Twitch Account.” You’ll then be prompted to sign in to your Twitch account. Confirm the accounts are linked, and then navigate to Twitch to get started with your Prime subscription.
When you choose to subscribe to a Twitch streamer via your Prime membership, you’re giving $4.99 to that person.
To subscribe to a streamer, navigate to their profile, and then click “Subscribe” at the top of the page.
If this is the first time you’ve subscribed to a streamer from your Twitch Prime account, you’ll be asked if you want to use your monthly free subscription for this streamer. Click “Yes” to subscribe to that streamer for one month at no additional charge.
After you subscribe to a streamer via your Prime membership, though, you have to wait a month before you can use your free subscription again. If you want to set up a recurring subscription, click “Subscribe” again, and then select the “Continue Sub” option.
If you choose to convert your Prime subscription to a recurring subscription, you’ll be charged the monthly fee of $4.99. You have to manually subscribe to a streamer every 30 days to use your Twitch Prime subscription again.
You can view your subscriptions anytime on Twitch. To do so, click your profile picture in the top-right corner, and then click “Subscriptions.”
The “Subscriptions” page shows all your current (and expired) subscriptions, along with the subscription benefits, expiration dates, and whether each is paid or Prime.
After you subscribe to a streamer via your linked Prime account, you have to wait one month before you can resubscribe.
To check your subscriptions, click your avatar in the top-right corner on Twitch, and then click “Subscriptions.” A list of your current, gifted, and expired subscriptions appears.
All of your current subscriptions will be under the “Your Subscriptions” tab. In the image below, you see a Prime membership was used to subscribe to a streamer.
You can either pay to resubscribe now or use your Twitch Prime membership to pay for another subscription to the streamer after it expires.
Subscribing is a great way to financially support your favorite Twitch streamers. And, if you subscribe via your Twitch Prime membership, you can do so without spending a dime!
With Prime Gaming, you have a channel subscription which can be used on any Partner or Affiliate channel at no cost. Click the Subscribe button on a channel to begin. If you are not currently enrolled in Prime Gaming, you will see a shortcut to start your trial at the bottom of the subscription window.
Every Amazon Prime member gets a monthly free Twitch subscription worth $4.99 that they can use to subscribe to any streamer. Given the great deals one can get when subscribing to Amazon Prime, especially for students, it makes perfect sense to pair the two services together.
All you have to do to use the free sub on Twitch is to link your Amazon Prime and Twitch account, which is a piece of cake.
With your accounts linked, you can use Amazon Prime to subscribe to one streamer for free. That’s one of the biggest perks that come with an Amazon Prime subscription, especially for avid gamers and Twitch content enthusiasts.
Here’s how to subscribe to your favorite streamer using your Prime membership.
Remember that the free monthly subscription you get from Twitch Prime doesn’t automatically renew the following month. Here’s how you set up a recurring subscription.
But there’s one issue with this setting. Prime subscriptions are different than recurring subscriptions. If you subscribe for a month using your Prime membership and decide to make it a recurring subscription to a particular channel, you will be charged the standard monthly fee the following month.
Prime subscriptions must be renewed manually every month. Fortunately, you can use your free monthly sub, however, and on whatever channel you want, as long as your Amazon Prime membership is active.
And just in case you forgot what streamer got your free Prime subscription, Twitch makes it easy to find out.
The Prime account creation process is pretty straightforward if you have a Twitch account but aren’t an Amazon Prime member yet.
Amazon Prime usually offers four subscription plans.
New Amazon Prime members can test the service for free for 30 days as long as they haven’t had a Prime account in the past 12 months. Students may receive a six-month trial during certain discount periods.
Even returning Amazon Prime account holders can benefit from another 30-day trial if they haven’t had an active subscription for at least one year.
If you’re an Amazon Prime member but not on Twitch, you can quickly create a new Twitch account to reap more benefits from your Prime membership.
Once you have a Twitch account, you can link it to your Amazon Prime account from the Amazon Twitch Prime platform.
Unlike an Amazon Prime account, Twitch membership is free. The only money you spend on the platform is money you choose to give to a streamer by donating or subscribing to their channel.
