Remember a while back when Nintendo and Twitch partnered up to offer free subscriptions to Nintendo Switch Online? Well, that deal is just about to come to an end.
Earlier this year, it was revealed that Amazon Prime members could use their Twitch Prime benefits to snag a 12-month subscription to Nintendo’s online service. It’s relatively simple to do – just head on over to Twitch – but you only have one week left to claim your membership. Here’s a snippet of an official FAQ on the matter which was posted earlier this year:
“First-time users will no longer be able to claim the Nintendo Switch Online offer after September 24th, 2019. If you claim the first offer before that time, you will be able to claim the additional 9-month membership offer after 60 days if you remain an active Twitch Prime member. Both offers must be redeemed before January 22nd, 2020.”
The 24th September cut off is for the initial free subscription of three months – after that date, you won’t be able to claim anything from the offer at all. As long as you claim your initial three months by then, though, you’ll still be able to claim your remaining nine months up until 22nd January.
Remember, these free months of Nintendo Switch Online can be added on to your existing subscription, so you may as well claim them now to extend your membership. The deal is only available for those on Individual plans, however, and cannot be used by those currently enjoying a Family subscription.
