Twitch Prime Offering Free Year of Nintendo Switch Online Membership
As anyone with an Amazon/Twitch Prime membership already knows, there’s a myriad of exclusive deals that make the subscription well worth while, one of which being the video game freebies dropped on the service each and every month. However, an especially enticing deal recently made itself available to members, offering gamers a full year of membership to Nintendo Switch Online.
Nope, it’s not a shady loophole or a scam. Amazon and Nintendo have officially partnered up to deliver this exciting promotion, allowing up to 12 free months of what the Nintendo Switch’s premiere online service has to offer. Whether they be new or old, Amazon Prime subscribers need only link their Twitch and Nintendo accounts to take part in all the Nintendo goodness, but this offer isn’t without a bit of fine print.
Linking Nintendo and Twitch Prime accounts may be one of the few prerequisites, but there’s still a few more steps before a full year of Nintendo Switch Online can be awarded. Firstly, the promo only awards the first 3 months of service up-front, the remaining 9 months being doled out after having been an active Prime member for 60 days. However, it appears this particular deal only applies to an Individual Membership, leaving out support for Nintendo’s multi-account Family Memberships.
Another caveat is the time limit, which is set to close its initial 3-month offer on September 24th. Those who begin the process before this time are then able to claim their leftover 9 months, provided they redeem before before a second expiration date of January 22nd, 2020. Those interested in starting their 12-month Nintendo Switch Online membership can do so from the offer’s official page.
What do you think? Are you going to hit up this deal, or do you draw the line at the lack of Family Membership support?
