Amazon, as a company, offers its customers a lot of different and useful offers, including the Amazon Prime membership. The many-famous Twitch platform, which has formed an entire community, offers users a subscription to various channels, which allows users to have an expanded toolbox of site usage. In turn, an Amazon Prime membership offers several benefits, one of which is a free Twitch Prime membership. In this article, I will tell you how you can link accounts and be able to use Twitch for free.
What is Twitch Prime
If you’ve ever used Twitch, you know that to be able to fully use and enjoy the content you need to subscribe to the channel of those or other content creators. In addition to that, you support authors and streamers. But Twitch Prime is a separate kind of subscription which works exactly the same way as the general subscription, but you don’t have to pay extra, because Twitch Prime is part of the Amazon Prime membership. In addition, you can subscribe again (for free) every month, as long as you have an active Amazon Prime membership linked to your Twitch account.
How to link your Twitch and Amazon Prime accounts
In order to get access to a free Twitch Prime membership, you should first link your Amazon Prime account and Twitch.tv accounts. To do so, follow this guide:
- Go 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.” Then you’ll then be required to sign in to your Twitch account. Confirm the accounts are linked, and then navigate to Twitch to get started with your Prime subscription
How to subscribe to a Twitch streamer
Before you decide to subscribe to your favorite content creator, you should understand that by doing so you are giving them $4.99 once a month. You can cancel your subscription at any time.
To subscribe to a streamer, navigate to their profile, and then click “Subscribe” at the top of the page.
In case you are going to subscribe to a streamer from your Twitch Prime account for the first time, 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.
You should understand that if you use the Prime Subscription, you must manually subscribe again each month. If you want to set up a recurring subscription, click “Subscribe” again, and then select the “Continue Sub” option.
If you choose to switch your Prime subscription to a recurring subscription, you’ll be charged a monthly fee of $4.99. You will need to manually subscribe to a streamer every 30 days to use your Twitch Prime subscription again.
How to view your current subscriptions
In case you are curious about how many people you subscribed to, you are able to view your subscriptions anytime on Twitch. To do so, click your profile picture in the top-right corner, and then click “Subscriptions.” The “Subscriptions” list shows all your relevant (and expired) subscriptions, along with additional info such as subscription benefits, expiration dates, and whether each is paid or Prime.
Is it possible to resubscribe to a streamer via Twitch Prime
Yes, once you subscribed to a streamer via your linked Prime account, you should wait one month before you can resubscribe.
Moreover, you always are able to check your subscriptions, by clicking your avatar in the top-right corner on Twitch, and then clicking “Subscriptions.” You will see a list of your current, gifted, and expired subscriptions appear.
All of your current subscriptions will be under the “Your Subscriptions” tab.
You can subscribe again for an additional fee now, or you can wait until Prime expires and subscribe again without spending extra money.
