How to Subscribe to a Twitch Account With Prime

Amazon Prime membership offers a wide range of benefits, from fast deliveries, exclusive deals, Prime Video access and much more. But one of the most coveted benefits is the partnership with the Twitch streaming platform.

How to Subscribe to a Twitch Account with Prime

Every Amazon Prime member gets a free monthly 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 need to do to use the free sub on Twitch is to link your Amazon Prime and Twitch account, which is a piece of cake.

Link your Amazon Prime and Twitch accounts

  1. go to Amazon Twitch Prime.
  2. Sign in with your Amazon Prime credentials.
  3. Click the “Link Twitch Account” button in the upper right corner, below your profile name.
  4. Sign in to your Twitch account with your Twitch credentials
  5. Confirm linking the accounts.

Subscribe to a Twitch Streamer with Amazon Prime

With your linked accounts, you can use Amazon Prime to subscribe to one streamer for free. This is one of the biggest benefits that comes with an Amazon Prime subscription, especially for avid gamers and Twitch content enthusiasts.

Here’s how to subscribe to your favorite streamer with your Prime membership.

  1. log in to you twitch account.
  2. Go to a streamer’s profile page.
  3. Click the “Sign In” button.
  4. Click “yes” when asked if you want to use the free monthly Prime subscription.
  5. Alternatively, check the “Use Prime Sub” box and click “Subscribe with Prime.”

Remember that the free monthly subscription you get from Twitch Prime does not automatically renew the following month. Here’s how you set up a recurring subscription.

  1. Go to the streamer’s profile page.
  2. Click the “Sign In” button.
  3. Select the “Continue Sub” option.

But there is one problem with this setting. Prime subscriptions are different from recurring subscriptions. If you sign up for a month with your Prime membership and decide to make it a recurring subscription to a specific channel, you will be charged the standard monthly fee the following month.

Prime subscriptions must be manually renewed each month. Luckily though, you can use your free monthly sub, and on whatever channel you want, as long as your Amazon Prime membership is active.

And just in case you forgot which streamer got you a free Prime subscription, Twitch makes it easy to find out.

  1. log in to you twitch account.
  2. Click on your avatar in the upper right corner.
  3. Click on the Subscriptions button.
  4. Go to “Your Subscriptions.”
  5. Look for the “Prime Subscription” tag next to a streamer.

Create an Amazon Prime account

The process of creating a Prime account is pretty straight forward if you have a Twitch account but are not yet an Amazon Prime member.

  1. go to Amazon Prime.
  2. Scroll down until you see the Prime membership plans.
  3. Select a plan and click the “Try Prime” button.
  4. Enter your credit card information.
  5. Follow the on-screen instructions to create your account.

Amazon Prime usually offers four subscription plans.

  • A monthly recurring subscription
  • An annual recurring subscription
  • A monthly recurring subscription for students
  • A monthly recurring subscription for anyone who qualifies for government assistance

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 can receive a six-month trial period 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.

Create a Twitch account

If you’re an Amazon Prime member but not on Twitch, you can quickly create a new Twitch account to get more benefits from your Prime membership.

  1. Go to the official twitch website.
  2. Click on the “Sign up” button.
  3. Enter a username, password, date of birth and email address.
  4. Alternatively, enter your phone number if you are registering from a mobile device.

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.

Enjoy your first perks

Twitch has an incredible amount of content spread across multiple categories. You don’t have to be a gamer to enjoy content put out by streamers every day. And if you want to show someone your love and support, the free monthly sub from Amazon Prime is a great way to do it without paying extra out of pocket.
