So you have an Amazon Prime account, but you want to link it to multiple Twitch accounts. Can you do that? And how exactly do you link your Amazon Prime and Twitch accounts? We cover all that and more below.
How Many Twitch Accounts Can You Link To Amazon Prime?
You can link your Amazon Prime account to a total of four different Twitch accounts. However, the Prime benefits such as your free monthly subscription, free games, or in-game loot are shared between all of your linked accounts and won’t be duplicated.
This means if you use your Twitch Prime sub on one of your accounts you will be unable to use it on your other Twitch accounts. Same goes for some of the other things mentioned above.
If you want to know how to link your Twitch account with Amazon Prime, here is how you would do it.
How To Link Your Amazon Prime To Twitch
To link your Amazon Prime account to your Twitch account, follow these steps:
- Go to gaming.amazon.com and sign into your Amazon Prime account (the sign-in button should be located in the top right corner).
- Once signed in you should be redirected to the Amazon Gaming homepage. From there, click on the “Activate Twitch Prime” button (which should also be located in the top right hand corner).
- It will redirect you to a page where it shows you which two accounts will be linked. If the correct accounts are listed, click the “confirm” button and your accounts will now be linked.
This is what it will look like.
If you don’t have an Amazon Prime account yet but want to sign up, follow these steps instead:
- Go directly to the Prime Gaming homepage here. Since you aren’t an Amazon Prime member yet, this is where you’ll sign up for the service and later link it to your Twitch account to activate Twitch Prime. Amazon often has free 30-day trials available if you aren’t sure yet about committing to paying $12.99 per month for the subscription.
- Sign up for an Amazon Prime subscription. Remember that you’ll need credit or debit card information on file if you opt for the free trial. Click “Try Prime” in the top-right corner of the screen to start your trial. When the trial period ends, your subscription will cost $12.99 per month or $119 per year plus tax. However, if you’re a current college student or an EBT recipient, you might be eligible for a discount.
- Sign in to your Amazon account. From here, you’ll be able to see how long your Amazon Prime membership is active, as well as your account and payment details.
- Click on “Activate Twitch Prime.” After signing in, it’ll redirect you to the Prime Gaming homepage. As mentioned earlier, you’ll now see the “Activate Twitch Prime” button in the place of the “Sign In” button in the upper-right corner of the page.
- Link your Amazon Prime and Twitch accounts. Verify that the account or accounts you intend to link to your Amazon Prime subscription are correct, and click the “Confirm” button. Again, it’ll redirect you to the Twitch Prime homepage, where you can start claiming your benefits.
If you have Amazon Prime you should definitely link it to your Twitch account. You get so many awesome perks when you link your account such as free in game loot and a free monthly sub that it is really a no brainer.
It’s not hard to link the two accounts either as you can see from above.
Is Linking Amazon Prime To Twitch Free?
Linking your Amazon Prime account to your Twitch account is free, fast, and easy. Twitch Prime won’t cost you anything extra as long as you already have an active Amazon Prime subscription (which costs $12.99/month).
Not only is linking the accounts free, but the perks it comes with are free as well. For example, a monthly sub normally costs $6 a month, but you get one for free every month with Amazon Prime to use on any streamer you want to.
If you think about it, that alone is almost have the cost of your monthly Amazon Prime membership cost.
I have a nearly 2 year sub streak on a channel all with Amazon Prime subs. It’s awesome!
What Are The Benefits Of Linking Your Amazon Prime To Twitch?
Some of the benefits of linking your Amazon Prime with Twitch include:
- Free games every month.
- One free channel subscription each month to use on a channel of your choice.
- Free in-game loot (like weapons and quests).
- Unique emotes to use in chat.
- More advanced chat options (such as more options when it comes to your name’s color).
Now don’t sleep on these rewards. For example, one of the free games that was offered was Battlefield 3. That’s a pretty big name game to be given out for free like that is awesome.
And by the way I can’t wait for the new Battlefield to come out. I am stoked for it!
But again , the other perks just really give you a better experience on Twitch.
Also, remember that if you link multiple Twitch accounts to your Amazon Prime that you will only get those perks on one account. So why link multiple accounts then?
Well, maybe you are more of a Twitch viewer and not much of a gamer. And your kids are more of the gaming types and not so much into watching Twitch.
Then in this situation they could get all the cool gaming perks on their account whereas you could use the free monthly sub on your account. Does that make sense?
Everyone wins and yet it still allows each user to have their own unique Twitch account.
Can You Unlink An Amazon Prime And Twitch Prime Account?
If you don’t want to have your Amazon Prime and Twitch accounts linked anymore, here is how you would unlink them:
- Go to the Prime Gaming homepage. From here, head to your settings and select the Your Twitch Accounts option.
- Unlink your account. From the Your Twitch Accounts page, you’ll see a list of Twitch accounts linked to your Amazon Prime account. Click on “Unlink Account.”
If you do decide to unlink your accounts, don’t forget to go back and sub to any channels that you were subbed to through your Amazon Prime.
Once your 30 day sub is up it will expire and you will lose your sub streak unless you renew it. Just keep that in mind.
