GTA5 Is Free After Rebate For US Twitch / Amazon Prime Members, Today Only (PS4, Xbox One)

Remember to use your credit by January 31.


Today only, anyone in the US with a Twitch Prime membership can get a copy of Grand Theft Auto V on PS4 or Xbox One effectively for free. You'll have to pay $15 up front, but you'll receive a $15 credit in your Amazon account within a week after purchase. At the time of this writing, the promotion works on the physical PS4 version and both the digital and physical versions for Xbox One. You'll want to hurry, because the offer goes away at tonight at 11:59 PM PT (2:59 AM ET December 20).

As you might expect, there are a number of caveats. First off, you have to be an Amazon Prime member. Next, you have to have linked your Prime membership with your Twitch account to become a Twitch Prime member (here's how to do that). The offer also only applies to copies of the game sold by or Amazon Digital Services LLC, meaning it won't work with third-party sellers. The $15 promotional credit expires on January 31, 2019, so you'll want to spend it before then. Read the full set of terms and conditions for more information.

Xbox One

Even with all that in mind, this is still a fantastic deal for anyone who doesn't have GTA V on PS4 or Xbox One. The single-player campaign is lengthy, and Rockstar has been updating the included GTA Online mode each week for years.

In GameSpot's Grand Theft Auto V review, Mark Walton wrote, "Aside from a few mild frame rate issues that sometimes take the edge off its more dramatic moments, this is the definitive version of GTA V, and the bar by which all other open-world games, or indeed any game that aims for a cinematic feel, should be judged. It is beautiful, and thought-provoking, and thrilling throughout. Even if you've played through GTA V once already, it's worth going back just to be reminded of what an outstanding achievement it is."
