Twitch Prime Members Can Now Get a Free Year of Nintendo Switch Online

Twitch Prime has partnered up with Nintendo Online Services to bring a great deal for those wanting to benefit from online play as well as other additional features

If you have yet to jump into the online service that Nintendo provide for the Switch or you just want a really great deal that’ll save you some money, then this is the perfect time for you. If you’ve got Amazon Prime then you’ll also have access to Twitch Prime which is a service that gives users a free monthly channel subscription to their favorite Twitch streamers, but now it looks as though you can get more bang for your buck as they have partnered up with Nintendo to give away up to a year of free access to the Switch’s online features.

So, how do you go about getting a whole year of Nintendo Switch Online for free? Twitch Prime members can claim three months of Switch Online via the Twitch Prime website straight away, however you will need to then wait for 60 days after your initial claim to manually grab the remaining nine months of service – this seems to be more of a safeguard so that folks just don’t sign up for the Prime trial, grab the free offer and then leave Amazon high and dry in their dust.

You have plenty of time to make use of this offer as you’ll have until 24th September 2019 to claim the three free months of Nintendo Online Service and until 22nd January 2020 to claim the nine additional months so, all in all, it does seem like a really good offer for those that want to get stuck into the large library of classic Nintendo Entertainment System games that’s at your disposal as currently a year of Nintendo Switch Online costs $19.99.
