Twitch Prime owners get 1 Year Nintendo Switch Online membership


Twitch Prime by Amazon is offering up a new freebie for gamers, and that's 12 months of access to Nintendo Switch Online for absolutely free.

Also, don't forget to shut off auto-renewal on your account after claiming your Nintendo Switch Online subscription, otherwise you may receive unwanted charges after your year is up. If you're already a Switch Online member, the offer appears to "stack" with existing subscriptions as well (as long as you don't have a Family Membership).

If you've got Amazon Prime as a way to get your parcels delivered fast and for free, as a side effect you'll also have Twitch Prime. You will be asked to sign in to your Nintendo account to claim your reward.

And that's it: you're done and can start enjoying the benefits of Switch Online membership.

The benefits of being an Amazon Prime member are many.

Nintendo Switch Online is the subscription service that allows people to play games online and access an app on the console with a growing library of NES games. This part is a little annoying and requires you to actually keep in mind to go back and claim it after 60 days (set a reminder in your calendar) but it's obviously so people don't sign up to Prime for one month just to claim it, which is fair enough. The offer for the initial three months of free service is good through September 24, 2019, with the additional nine months needing to be claimed by January 22, 2020. For example, Amazon removed ad-free streams towards the end of a year ago, out of the blue. But unlike Twitch Prime's other free drops, this one doesn't unlock all at once.

Clicking on the three-month option will redirect them to Nintendo's website, where they will need to log in with their Nintendo account.
