Grand Theft Auto V free after Amazon Credit with Twitch Prime

I did the same. Even though Amazon stopped letting us use those digital credits towards PSN credit and the like, it's still worth something (TV shows for the kids, etc.)


I was hoping I could use the $4 in credits I have towards this, but nope.

Note that only the primary Amazon Prime account holder is eligible for Twitch Prime. My wife has the primary Amazon account, I can share shipping benefits on my Amazon accounts, but my Amazon account cannot be linked to Twitch. I had at some point linked my wife's Amazon to my Twitch since she doesn't game, was about to check out when I realized my Amazon account would not qualify for the credit. I could use her account and then have to go into her library for the code but that is already more effort than I feel like putting in for a free copy of a game I haven't bothered to play for years.

This used to be the case but they changed it at some point.  I have Amazon Prime via a family member's "Amazon Household" and I was able to link my Amazon/Twitch accounts and get Twitch Prime for free.

 

"Prime members can share certain benefits with the other adult in their Amazon Household, including FREE Prime Shipping, Prime Video, Photos Family Vault, Twitch Prime, other digital benefits, and exclusive offers."

I got in on this. Phone app popped up a camera deal with I take a picture of an item I'm looking for an I'd get $5 off my next purchase so I took a pic of GTA V from my laptop screen and ordered the Xbox One version and got $5 off so a total of $10.76. I've never played this game before and getting $15 credit from Amazon to own it is a no brainer. I also chose the longer shipping to get $5 credit towards my next Prime now purchase. Thanks OP.

I already owned the physical game for Xbox 360 and PS4, so I bought the digital Xbox One version with my linked account.

Prime is prime. If you have Amazon Prime you get Twitch Prime for no added fees. It’s possible you’re looking at Twitch Nitro or whatever it’s called which gets you some additional features.

Just slow down and read. You can go under your “subscriptions” tab on your amazon account to find out all what you’re subscribed to.

on another note: in 3-4 years (or maybe sooner) GTAV will be the easiest game to get at thrift stores etc. I think its the highest selling game of all time at this point? maybe still wii sports / super mario bros, cant remember.

 

But literally will be the easiest game to find for 2.99 haha 

According to Wikipedia, it's third to Tetris and Minecraft. Not a huge surprise considering those are available on way more platforms. https://en.wikipedia...ing_video_games

Where/when does the credit show up? I got the digital version for Xbox. Code is in my amazon account (I haven’t redeemed it yet) but I don’t see the credit anywhere. Purchased something yesterday and the credit was not applied.

Because you missed the part where they said the credit would come LATER. Right there in the OP and on the GTA V page via the twitch prime link telling you how you'd get the $15. (Within a week, and it's been 3 whole days!!!!! the horror)

 

 

• You will receive an e-mail from Amazon within a week after product has shipped that indicates the dollar amount of the promotional credit and that the dollar amount of the credit has been added to your customer account.
