Get 12 months of Nintendo Switch Online for free with Twitch Prime

So long as someone subscribes to Amazon Prime and has linked their Amazon and Twitch accounts to activate their Twitch Prime membership, they can claim up to 12 months of Nintendo Switch Online. Want the free Switch Online service but don't have Prime?

Note that in order to get your free nine-month subscription, you must have an active Prime membership after your first three-months of Nintendo Switch Online.

Some links to supporting retailers are automatically made into affiliate links, and GameSpot may receive a small share of those sales.

Technically, it's not Amazon giving away the Switch Online membership, it's Twitch. If you, like me, have a Switch Online family account set up so your friends with a Switch can trade shiny Pokémon with you, you'll be out of luck.

Remember that all Amazon Prime members have Twitch Prime, so if you're already a Prime member, you're good to go.

As Amazon Prime's annual cost has grown over the years, so has its spread of perks, and that's particularly true for video game fans who claim its attached "Twitch Prime" subscription bonus.

To find out more information about what's included and if existing Nintendo Switch Online members are eligible, you can visit right here and let all your questions be answered - hopefully. With the Nintendo Switch Online smartphone app, you can also voice chat during your play sessions. Switch Online is only $29.95 a year or $5.95 a month, so if you don't have Amazon Prime you're not saving money, but if you've already signed up to Amazon then it means you can at least save a little extra by not paying double for a recurring Switch service.

The only catch is that the 12 months of total service is divided up into two chunks, and there are 60 days of wait time in between. The first three months must be claimed by September 24, 2019.
