Twitch Prime members can now gift games to friends

It’s the season for giving! Now through December 31st 2018, Twitch Prime members can claim a Free Game with Prime for themselves and gift a free copy of the same game to a friend — even if they don’t have Twitch Prime!

Twitch Prime members can find Free Games with Prime on the Prime Loot page. If the game is eligible for gifting, a “Send as a Gift” button will appear next to the “Claim” button. To send the game as a gift, select the “Send as Gift” button and send the gift to your friend’s Twitch account.

Your recipient will be notified of the gifted game via both an email and a push notification and they can claim it from the Prime Loot page. Your chosen recipient doesn’t have to link an Amazon account with Twitch in order to claim the gift.

Just make sure your friend claims their Free Games with Prime before the game’s offer expires, otherwise they’ll loses access to their gift.


  1. Are all games giftable?

From December 13, 2018 through December 31, 2018, every Free Game with Prime game is eligible for gifting. Moving forward, gifting-eligible content will be indicated by having a “Send as a Gift” option.

  1. Can I gift a game to multiple friends?

For December, each Free Game with Prime game comes with one copy to gift to a single recipient per game. However, stay tuned for future gifting-eligible content you can gift to multiple friends!

  1. What is required for me and for my friend to gift a game?

Gift givers need to be Prime members and have their Twitch ID linked to their Amazon account. Recipients are only required to have a Twitch ID.

What is Twitch Prime?
