Everything You Need To Know About Twitch Prime Free Trial 

Twitch Prime—now called Prime Gaming—is a subscription service created by Amazon in 2016. Twitch users who also have Amazon Prime membership can enjoy premium features of the streaming platform. Gamers will get not only everything included in their Amazon Prime membership but also free games, special deals, and free subscriptions on Twitch each month

Residents of some countries will have to register for Prime Gaming through Amazon Prime, while for the majority of countries in the world, Prime Gaming is available only through Prime Video. 

Does Twitch Prime Offer a Free Trial?

Prime Gaming (Twitch Prime) does offer a free trial to both new and existing Amazon Prime or Prime Video users. The trial allows access to all premium features, such as:


  • Free games you can keep forever
  • New skins, levels, weapons, characters, and many other updates
  • Free and prompt shipping
  • Unlimited streaming of movies and TV shows
  • Free subscriptions on Twitch
  • Fun Twitch colors and emoticons for your chat

If you’re in a country where it’s possible to sign up for Twitch Prime through Amazon Prime, you will be able to enjoy a free trial that lasts 30 days. If you have to connect with Prime Video, your free trial will last for seven days. 

Will My Twitch Prime Free Trial Auto-Renew Into a Paid Membership?

Once a free trial is over, you’ll be automatically charged for the following billing period. If you want to avoid being charged, you should cancel the free trial before it ends. 

Prime Gaming doesn’t offer a refund if you forget to cancel the trial. If you unsubscribe from the service after the trial is over, you’ll be able to use all the perks until the end of the billing period, but you won’t be offered a prorated refund. 

DoNotPay’s Virtual Credit Card Helps You Save Money

Did you know that it’s possible to register for a Prime Gaming free trial without the risk of being charged once it’s over? DoNotPay’s super convenient feature—virtual credit card—enables it. If you think you may forget to cancel a free trial before it expires, you’ll appreciate DoNotPay’s help

All you need to do is open your DoNotPay account in a web browser.

Avoid losing money on services you don’t need by using a temporary email address and a randomly generated credit card number that DoNotPay provides. Even though this isn’t a real credit card, Prime Gaming and other companies that don’t require temporary authorization will accept it for free trials. 

Once the trial is over, you’ll be automatically unsubscribed because our virtual credit card doesn’t have any money on it, and the company won’t be able to charge for the subscription.

How Much Does Twitch Prime Cost?

Once your Twitch Prime free trial is over, you’ll be charged

  • $12.99 a month if you register for Prime Gaming through Amazon Prime
