A year of free Nintendo Switch Online now comes with Amazon Prime

A year of free Nintendo Switch Online now comes with Amazon Prime

Nintendo kicked off Switch Online in September 2018 with an array of pricing plans - but now, players have a chance to cop the service for free.

Originally launched in May 2018, Nintendo Switch Online enables online gameplay, access to a selection of classic NES games, cloud game saves and more!

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 ideal time for you.

Twitch Prime connects to your Amazon Prime account so you can access exclusive rewards for gamers along with free game downloads and more on a consistent basis. Since Amazon's purchase of Twitch, membership bonuses extended to the streaming service as well, allowing for users to link their account to get a free channel sub in the form of Twitch Prime. Additionally, because the offer requires NSO login and Twitch credential verification, you can not game the system by claiming multiple Twitch Prime bonuses on a single NSO account. If you, like me, have a Switch Online family account set up so your friends with a Switch can trade shiny Pokémon with you, you'll be out of luck. The cost of annual subscription to Switch Online is $20.

Apple pins hopes on new credit card
Speaking of Apple Pay Cash , the feature is now simply called Apple Cash with this now tied to rewards for using your Apple Card . Apple Card is both a digital service stored in Apple Wallet and an actual physical card for use where Apple Pay isn't accepted.

Everything you need to know about the deal is right here on the Twitch Prime offer page, which also features an extensive FAQ, so go and have a gander.

At the same time, Amazon is getting wise to people who use the trial window for Prime to claim the best perks. The nine-month extension must be claimed by January 22. If you claim the entire year, you will need to ensure you keep Twitch Prime for 60 days.
