1. Choose who to raid
For a certain amount of channel points you could let a viewer decide who you will raid when your stream is over. See my video below to know how to raid on Twitch.
2. Tell a random fact about yourself
For this reward you will just state a random fact about yourself. It could be that you have 6 toes, you have never watched a baseball game, etc. Any random fact will do.
3. Viewer chooses an emote to add
BTTV and FFZ have tons of emotes to choose from. As a channel point reward you could allow a viewer to add an emote from either BTTV or FFZ to your stream.
If you need help setting up BTTV emotes or setting up FFZ emotes then check out the links. I go over step by step how you can easily add these extensions to your Twitch stream.
4. Visit a viewer’s social media
With so many points, you can visit a viewer’s social media page (Instagram, Twitter, etc.). But before you share the page with stream, just make sure the content on there is appropriate.
5. Custom chat command
After redeeming this a user will be add a custom chat command. It could be a link to their Twitch channel, a funny joke, or anything else that you are willing to allow.
6. Customize your character in game
A viewer would be able to customize how your character looks in game. They can change the clothes, the face, or anything else that the game permits.
7. Enable emote only chat
Emote only chat is where the chat can only chat using emotes. This is fun, but make sure you put a time limit on it. And check out my video below if you don’t already know how to enable emote only chat.
8. Do a push-up/sit-up
Push ups and sit ups not only get you moving, the stream will also like to see you pushing through these exercises. You could also do things like squats and lunges if you want even more of a workout.
9. Give your pet a treat
Viewers love when pets appear on stream. So if someone earns the reward, have some snacks for your pet ready to give out.
10. Make someone VIP
VIP is a special badge of honor on Twitch. You only have a certain amount to give and so having the badge is a big deal. Check out my video below to know how to make someone a VIP on Twitch.
11. Make someone a mod
Being a mod for a channel is a big deal. Having this as a reward could be really motivating for some viewers. And if you want to know how to mod on Twitch, check out my video below.
12. Viewer chooses the song
If you play music on your stream, let a viewer who redeems their channel points choose the next song. And if you are looking for great DMCA free songs then check out epidemicsound.com.
13. Play truth or dare with the viewers
You know the game. Your chat asks you a question, if you don’t answer then they get to dare you to do something. Hopefully this doesn’t get too crazy though.
14. Let a viewer name your character
When you are playing a game that allows you to name your character, this could be an awesome reward. It won’t work for every game, but when it does this reward is fantastic.
15. Switch game
When someone redeems their channel points you will have to switch the game that you are playing. Since this could get abused I recommend setting it at a high price.
16. Change the stream’s title
Let a viewer change the title to whatever they want. Just make sure that the title they choose is appropriate and will not get you in trouble with Twitch. Here’s how to change your title if needed.
17. Let a viewer run ads
Ads can be a real buzz kill on Twitch, which could end up making this type of reward so funny to your viewers. Or at least funny to the person who earns the points and runs the ad.
18. Call someone IRL
Calling someone IRL (in real life) could be very scary, but your chat will love it. You can call your mom, your brother, or anyone else. Better yet, maybe you let your chat decide.
19. Drop an item in game
If you’re playing a game where you hold items, your chat will love teasing you with this one. You could drop a weapon of chat’s choice, or randomly choose a weapon to drop.
20. Speak a foreign language
If someone earns this reward you would have to read something in a foreign language or try to speak a foreign language. Just make sure what you are reading is OK for Twitch.
Just a quick yell will do. It can be a “YEET!” or maybe even a high pitched scream. Chat will think it’s funny the crazier you look.
22. Allow a viewer to share a link
Most of the time streamers forbid other users from sharing a link, but maybe you allow someone to get past your rules for the right price. Just make sure a mod checks the link first to assure it is safe.
23. Play with viewer
Viewers love playing with streamers. So why not make this a reward for those who have supported you as a streamer? Load up with a viewer and start slaying out.
When someone claims this reward you would give a shoutout to whomever they want. It could be the viewer themselves, or someone special they want to show love to.
25. Follow a viewer on Twitch
This is easy. You follow someone on Twitch who redeems a certain amount of channel points. And here’s a quick tutorial on how to follow in case you didn’t know.
26. Random joke
Get your dad jokes ready. With this one you could either share a random corny joke that you know, or you can look up a random joke online and share it with chat.
Short and sweet. You just give a wink to chat when someone claims this reward.
Is dabbing still a thing? If it is, it makes for a quick, easy, and fun channel points reward.
29. Blow a Kiss
Like the past few on this list, this one is simple. Someone redeems points and you blow a kiss to stream.
30. Followers only chat
Make your chat so that way only followers can chat in it. But like other rewards on the list, I suggest adding a time limit for this one. And here is me on Youtube explaining how to do this.
31. Sub only chat
This reward will make it so that only subs can talk in your chat. Again, I recommend only doing this for a set time or else your chat might go quiet. And here is my video on how to do this.
32. Streamer can’t talk
You go totally silent. You can read chat, but only in your mind. And no angry outbursts at the game you are playing either.
33. Time out another user
The viewer who redeems this gets to time out another user. But make sure the other user knows why they are being timed out so they don’t get mad at you or the mods.
34. Use a move in game immediately
When this is redeemed you must use a move IMMEDIATELY. This reward is hilarious in games where you have power ups that you save up. All that saving just gone to waste.
35. Timeout themselves
A person who uses this puts themselves on timeout. It’s weird, but this reward is funny and unique.
36. Discord role change
If you have a Discord linked with your stream, this could be an awesome reward. It gives viewers a goal to work towards and more of a reason to watch your streams.
37. Highlight message
This is a pretty basic reward, and one that is common on most channels. When a viewer redeems this reward their message is highlighted in chat. It stands out more and makes it easier to read. Sweet!
38. Take a bite of food
You will have to have some snacks near by for this one. And if you don’t have snacks near you when you stream are you crazy?
39. Give a compliment
When this is redeemed you can either give a compliment to the viewer who redeemed it or to the stream as a whole. It can be a serious compliment, or something funny that you make up.
40. Posture check
Streamers are notorious for poor posture. Use this as a channel point redemption so that way your viewers can let you know when you are slouching and need to straighten up.
41. Choose character abilities
This is another reward that will be game specific. If your game allows you to choose the abilities of your character, then this is a great reward. And one where viewers can really mess you up.
42. Streamer has to buy an item in game (skin, emote, etc.)
Most games these days have some type of in-game item(s) that you can purchase. These items can be skins, emotes, or anything like that. If someone redeems points, you have to buy one of these items.
43. Stream sounds disabled
You can choose how crazy you want to go with this one. You can disable alerts, your mic, other users, or all of the above. Just make sure you cap how long the sounds will be disabled for.
44. Change stream overlays
Many streamers have overlays on their stream. For the right price you may change the overlay to something else or remove it entirely. It’s up to you how this reward will work.
45. Play certain sound effects
It could be a fart. It could be a dog barking. Breaking glass. When someone redeems this you play a certain sound effect. And if you are looking for sound effects, I use Epidemic Sound for my sound effects.
46. Move up in a queue
Many streamers who play with viewers have a queue to help them keep track of who is next up. For a certain amount of channel points you could let another user jump ahead in the line.
And here is my video about how to add a queue on Twitch.
47. Swap an emote
You can only have a certain amount of emotes on Twitch, so for a channel points reward you could allow one of your viewers to swap out one of your emotes to one that they choose.
48. Play with one hand
When this reward is redeemed you must play with one hand. This could get interesting.
49. Shoutout on Youtube video
If you make Youtube videos, consider shouting out users in your next video who have earned a certain amount of channel points.
50. Shoutout on social media
If you are active on other social media platforms like Twitter or Instagram, give a shoutout to those who have claimed this reward.
51. Access to a game server
Games like GTA and Rust have servers that users can join and play in. Many streamers have their own servers, and as a cool reward you could allow certain members of stream to join your server.
52. Modify an emote
Instead of swapping out an emote, a viewer who redeems this reward would be able to modify one of your existing emotes for the stream to use. Just hope they are a good artist.
53. Channel tax
It’s just a tax. Nothing comes of it. Just make sure to thank the viewer for graciously paying their channel tax.
54. Play game with eyes closed
Close your eyes and play the game that way for the next 2 minutes. Or more. Or less. Up to you.
55. Show chat a meme
You see memes everyday I am sure of it. When this reward is redeemed, you must show chat a funny meme that you saw that day.
56. Submit an emote for you to use
A viewer would be able to submit an emote for you to use on your stream. This is an awesome way to reward a viewer and to increase community engagement.
57. Allow a text to speech message
Text to speech is a popular reward on channels such as xQc. For smaller streamers though you can allow users to use text to speech when they have redeemed their channel points.
58. Add a Twitch extension
Those who have earned it can have you add a Twitch extension to your channel. If you want to know what some good Twitch extensions are, check out my linked article.
59. You have to donate to another streamer
You have to go onto the channel of another streamer and donate to them live. It can be a streamer you choose or one that your chat chooses. And here’s how to donate on Twitch if you didn’t know.
60. Ban another user in chat
A little friendly fire never hurt right? Either you or the viewer choose someone to ban from chat. However, don’t be mean, make sure the ban is only temporary. And here is my video on how to ban on Twitch.
61. Change the green screen
You must remove your green screen or edit the way your green screen appears on stream.
62. Choose a channel for you to check out
This is not a raid. All this is is going over to another channel while you are live and checking out the channel suggested by your viewer.
63. Play standing up
If you have a sit/stand desk just raise it up and play. If you don’t have a sit/stand desk this reward still works, it will just be a lot more interesting.
64. Discounted item
If you sell merch, or if you are affiliated with a certain company, you can offer the viewer who redeemed the reward something at a discounted price.
65. Follow a viewer on Instagram
This one is straight forward. Just follow a user on their personal Instagram account.
66. No swearing
You have to watch what you say for a certain amount of time. No more potty mouth.
67. Watch a video
The video you watch could be a Youtube video, Youtube short, or even a TikTok. Just make sure that one of your mods checks out the video before hand to make sure it is safe for stream.
68. Waste points
Their points go to nothing. It is just a complete waste.
69. Viewer creates a prediction
Predictions are fun, especially when created by your community. “Will streamer win?”, “”Will streamer score X amount of points”, etc. All of these are engaging predictions.
70. Viewer creates a poll
Viewers love participating in polls. “What’s the best pizza?”, “Are burgers good?”, etc. It always gets the chat talking. See my video below to learn how to create polls on Twitch.
71. Drink water
This is often called “Hydrate”, but it all works the same. When this is redeemed the streamer takes a drink of their water or juice.
72. Read a viewer’s message
When you get more people in your stream, chat messages get harder to keep track of. But for a certain amount of channel points you could make a point to read a viewer’s message.
73. Viewer posts on your Twitter
This is an amazing reward for a viewer, just make sure that you are able to read the message and approve it before it gets tweeted out.
74. Voice changer effect
There are tons of voice changing softwares out there. My favorite is voicemod. Your viewers will crack up when they hear your crazy voice change. Trust me.
Give a big ‘ol good morning stretch. And then get back to dominating noobs.
76. Sing to viewers
Let the viewer choose the song, or you can, just don’t sing too long so that way you can avoid DMCA.
77. Dance for viewers
Get up and give a little shimmy for the viewers.
78. Change light color
Many streamers have adjustable RGB lights in their backgrounds. I use the Elgato Light Strip and for the right amount of channel points I let a viewer change the color of the lights. It’s pretty sweet!
79. Give a house tour
Show your viewers around your house. Just make sure to clean it up before you do.
80. Camera off
Turn your camera off. You can choose to have it off for a set amount of time, or keep it off until someone redeems points for you to turn it back on.
81. Change camera angle
If you have your camera straight in front of you, move it to the side. If it’s to the side you put it in front of you. You get the idea.
Give something away (merch, mic, etc.). For bigger giveaways, require more channel points.
83. Content review
Review another viewers content. It could be their Youtube channel, Twitch channel, or maybe even a social media page if you feel like you have something to offer.
84. Clothing change
You can swap hats, shirts, glasses, any wardrobe change will do. On my stream I switch hats for a certain amount of channel points.
85. Ban a certain word
The streamer, or the entire stream if you choose, can not say a certain word once this reward is redeemed. If they do, they are timed out. Here’s my article on banning words on Twitch.
86. Extend the stream
When this is redeemed the stream will extend for a certain amount of time. Five minutes? Ten Minutes? Thirty minutes? The choice is yours.
87. Mystery surprise
When this is redeemed the viewer will receive a surprise. It could be anything you want and it could change from viewer to viewer making it even more exciting.
88. Do nothing
The streamer has to stop what they are doing and just sit there. Emotionless. This would be a funny one.
89. Change your background
We mentioned lights earlier, but maybe you have a plant you can move or a poster you can take down. Anything that changes the appearance of your stream will do.
90. Gift a free sub
The streamer must gift a sub to either the person who redeemed the reward, or to another user in chat.
91. Give viewers access to an exclusive social media
Many streamers have their public and their private social media accounts separated. As a reward, you could give a viewer access to your private social media accounts (if you have any).
92. 1v1 a viewer
Drop everything and 1v1 a viewer. This reward builds massive hype!
93. Answer a question
The streamer must answer a question asked by the viewer.
94. Choose the character in game
If the game you are playing allows for characters to be chosen, then the viewer gets to choose your character. I hope they choose a good one for you.
95. Follow a viewer on Twitter
The streamer has to follow the viewer on Twitter.
96. Viewer bans themselves
A viewer who redeems this reward gets themselves banned, hopefully only temporarily.
97. Streamer turns off lights
All the lights go off and you game in darkness. Major spooky vibes!
98. Streamer must restart the game
Back to the beginning. All your progress is lost and you have to restart your game.
99. Allow viewer to self-promote
Self-promoting is forbidden in most channels, but for the right price you allow a viewer to bypass the rules and promote something in your channel.
100. End stream
That’s it, the stream is over. This would be a massive reward and should be set at a very high price.
I hope this list is able to help you find the right rewards for your channel.
