If you signed up for free Nintendo Switch Online through Twitch Prime back in March, you should now be able to claim your remaining 9 months of the service for the wonderful price of free.

For those of us (*raises hand*) that didn’t complete the offer when it was first available, have no fear, as you can still claim that original offer. Then, in 60 days, you’ll be able to get the remainder of your free subscription.

If you already claimed your free Nintendo Switch Online ($20/year, normally) in March, follow this link to claim the rest of your free year. If not, follow the steps below.

How to use your Twitch Prime membership to get free Nintendo Switch Online

If you’re trying to score some of that sweet, sweet Nintendo Switch Online for the wonderful price of free, here’s how:

  1. Head over to this link
  2. Click on “Get three months of Nintendo Switch Online”
  3. Connect your Twitch Prime account (free with Amazon Prime) to your Nintendo account
  4. Boom, you’re done, 60 free days of NSO

Now, set yourself up a quick little reminder to check the link again in 60 days so you can claim the rest of your free year through the same link mentioned above. If you don’t know how to connect your Amazon Prime account to Twitch Prime, you can follow our guide here.
