Free Twitch Prime membership with Amazon Prime | Awesome Games Done Quick 2018 Charity Fundraiser

66
Found 9th Jan
Hi guys, I wanted to bring attention to the ability to get free Twitch Prime membership with your Amazon Prime subscription, and what you can do with it this week.

If you have a Twitch account (5 minutes to set up if not) you can link it to your Amazon account to unlock your Twitch Prime membership. This gives you free loot in a bunch of games like Hearthstone, Overwatch, and Call of Duty, as well as a free subscription to a Twitch channel.

On twitch at the moment is a charity fundraising event called Awesome Games Done Quick, which is a 7 day marathon with gamers finishing their favourite games as quickly as possible. This is an annual event to raise money for Prevent Cancer Foundation. Last year they raised $2 million, and are the charity's biggest fundraiser.

With your twitch prime membership I mentioned you get a free subscription to a twitch channel. Usually this means you can watch without adverts, and participate in sub only chat, but if you subscribe to AGDQ it also means you're donating the $5 it would cost normally directly to the charity.

If you want to do a good deed for the day, have Amazon Prime, and do not have a twitch account, or maybe you do but you don't use your free monthly subscription, please consider using it to subscribe to the AGDQ channel, and raise a little money for Prevent Cancer Foundation.

People post a deal in good faith,yet still get ridiculed by people who basically need to get out more.Good post thank you.
Twitch prime has been a thing since sept 2016 its nothing new..
This is for cancer awareness not research its god damn useless and the organistation that is running it is a joke that loves censorship.
Pretty useless subscription, I always thought it was sad to sit on YouTube watching people play games. This brings sad to a whole new level...

Interesting, how are they getting away with this? Any links?
This isnt free is it, you're just asking people to pay it and use their free sub on a Charity stream?

What's your point? I said it was for Prevent Cancer Foundation, nothing else. How is cancer prevention useless?

And if you're saying AGDQ loves censorship, I'm guessing you're referring to the sub only chat. Every stream for the last 6 years, every time a woman, a minority, a homosexual, or a transexual comes on camera, the chat is ruined by trolls and hate. Now, I love twitch chat, and don't agree with censorship, but even I think its bad that that happened. All they are trying to do is raise **** loads of money for charity and make the event open to a bigger audience, get over it.

What? No amazon prime isn't free, I didn't say it was, but the twitch prime membership is free. I'm suggesting people that have amazon prime already use their free sub on a charity stream.
I didn't know I was getting this as part of prime, just signed up... not sure its of use to me but I have COD so claimed the freebies but I am yet to actually play it yet.

Heat for info - thanks.
Thanks enjoyed the event last year so will watch some of this and give them my sub this month
Cheers OP, I haven't used my sub this month so this is a great idea Will go do it now!
first of this is a deal second of its not a good cause third of you could do this anyway

Yes but it’s always worth reposting now and then as some Amazon customers tend not to be the sharpest knies in the drawer and probably don’t realise that they have a free Twitch sub with their Prime membership. Also as OP says you get free games as well.

OP, or anyone, do you know if there is a non-US centric alternative? A lot of this groups work seems to be done in the US.
Better to support a small streamer with your free sub and make a donation to a cancer charity. AGDQ are censoring the chat this year by having it set to subscriber only
Used to be a regular Twitch viewer. Fairly sure my Twitch Prime has been subscribing to Imaqtpie every month for the last year or so without me watching. Hope that he is enjoying my money!
Anyone who knows twitch will know about twitch prime because most streamers say 'thanks for the prime sub' when someone uses theirs to sub. It shows up to the broadcaster as a amazon prime sub, not just a normal $5 sub. And a lot of streamers remind viewers they can sub for free with amazon prime.

It wont be, you have to hit the resub button every month or it expires the current sub after a few weeks of not renewing to the same channel

Why's it sad? There are communities built around streamers and a lot of them invite their viewers or subscribers to joint matches. And you can support the streamers with the free sub money
I still can't get my head round what the point of twitch prime is. It seems to have very little benefit at all.

Free loot boxes for some games, some free games, a free subscription for a channel. It gives the streamer half of the $5, twitch gets the other half. This money is some streamers sole income when they go full time.
Prevent Cancer Foundation (PCF) (formerly the Cancer Research Foundation of America or the Cancer Research and Prevention Foundation) is a United States-based charity, and one of the leading US health organizations devoted to the early detection and prevention of cancer.

So if you don't play awful games with loot boxes, or watch cliquey channels, nothing basically?

If you've been using Twitch prime he hasn't been getting it so it doesn't matter, Twitch prime you have to manually re-sub to a streamer each month

They're not cliquey. A lot of them are inclusive and friendly. My favourite is CDNthe3rd. He is a very positive and nice person. Some of the free games on twitch prime have been good, like the Flame in the Flood etc. Also you can give away the codes for stuff you don't want to friends that do play those games.

If you aren't interested in watching others play games, then there's no point in me trying to explain the benefits of twitch prime to those of us that do use twitch.

If you're making people pay or 'subscribe' to chat it sure is cliquey.

I watch streams sometimes, it's not accurate to say I don't use twitch, but I haven't found anything that could keep me entertained enough to 'pay' or even watch more than twice. I'd rather just go and play a game myself.

Twitch is more useful for big events like E3 or PSX.

Being a 'nice person' just isn't enough, it's like buying a friend. If Digital Foundry have a twitch channel I might look into it. They actually tell me things I need to know.

Have I got this right?
Twitchies just watch other people play computer games?

I had no idea. Thank God such people exist. I thought I was going to actually have to get a job one day.

I'm looking for investors for the 1st round of funding in my latest start-up. RETCH
For, oh I don't know call it £20 a month. You know what?, call it £25. you can watch other people taking a dump.

I'll give it two years and then let Google buy me out.

Thank you for existing.

90% of streams are open chat for everyone. Some streamers have sub chat on when they're playing certain games, to avoid spoilers of the story by non subs.

I think twitch is a bit like marmite. You either 'get it', or you don't. I like supporting my favourite streamers. I can't afford to buy subscriptions at the moment but I do use my free sub from amazon prime

I'm not sure there is anything to get. Especially if 90% of the channels are open chat anyway, it just reinforces my opinion that the inner that need subs are cliques.

Anyway, OP has made it pretty clear his 'deal' is not up for discussion. So I best not say anything else.

I'll just these links here, to the American charity he works for is supporting. Since they are omitted from the OP.

MSK is just being negative for negative sake...no wonder he doesn't engage with twitch or the communities there are on there. Twitch prime is great and thanks for reminding people about it bankers.
