To actually claim these bonuses, you have to do more than just link your accounts. You’ll need to finish up the tutorial missions and play for at least 30 minutes — it’s all in the fine print. After completing the prerequisites, you’ll get a message stating that your Twitch Prime benefits have been sent.
Amazon Prime members automatically get a free Twitch Prime account. With Twitch Prime, you’ll get a free subscription to Twitch.tv, earn some exclusive in-game loot in other games like Fortnite, and get some free games thrown in. That’s including all the benefits of Amazon Prime, which is just about to release a massive new Amazon Prime Day Sale.
This deal is running until April 1, so you can jump in anytime before then. In addition to GTAO cash, you can also get 12 months of Nintendo Switch Online, exclusive Division 2 gear, and more. You’ll also get some free games — right now, Cultist Simulator, Yookah-Laylee, For The King and The Escapists are available to download. Enjoy the benefits while you can!
