Amazon added another goodie to Twitch Prime, a series of benefits for gamers, up to a free year of the online service for Nintendo Switch.

Amazon unveiled Twitch Prime in 2016, two years after it acquired the leading game-streaming service for close to $1 billion. Amazon Prime members and Prime Video subscribers can become Twitch Prime members by linking their accounts on Twitch.

Nintendo Switch Online is the subscription service for the smash hit console that lets users play multiple player games online and access classic NES games. The cost of annual subscription to Switch Online is $20.

Twitch Prime members can claim the new benefit here. You can’t claim the entire year at once and first have to redeem three months free and come back to get the other nine months later.

The deadline to claim the first three months Switch Online is Sept. 28, and the nine month redemption must occur by Jan. 28, 2020.
