People with Nintendo Switch system and Twitch Prime subscriptions have a chance to get 12 months of access to Nintendo Switch Online as a bonus. So long as someone subscribes to Amazon Prime and has linked their Amazon and Twitch accounts to activate their Twitch Prime membership, they can claim up to 12 months of Nintendo Switch Online. However, this is a two-part offer.


Here’s how the Nintendo Switch Online Twitch Prime deal works. First, you are allowed to claim three months of Nintendo Switch Online. Mark your calendar after you do. 60 days after first claiming the three-month subscription, you will be able to claim nine months of Nintendo Switch Online access. The first three months must be claimed by September 24, 2019. The second nine-month subscription must be acquired and redeemed by January 22, 2019.


There are some important elements to this to note. Existing Nintendo Switch Online subscribers can only add this extra time if they have an Individual Membership plan. (Family Memberships can’t add on the time.) Also, people with accounts in participating Nintendo Switch Online regions are the only ones who can claim this offer.


Nintendo Switch Online is the subscription service that allows people to play games online and access an app on the console with a growing library of NES games.
