Partners and Affiliates do so much to build amazing communities on Twitch, and a huge part of growing those audiences is getting subscribers who consistently watch, chat, spam emotes, make Clips, and more.
With Gifted Subs and Community Gifting, we gave viewers the power to help out their favorite streamers by inviting new friends to the party. This SUBtember, we’re making it easier than ever to keep the Sub train going with a great month-long deal: continue a gifted subscription for 80% off!
This deal applies to Tier 1 subscriptions, meaning you can turn any Tier of your gifted Sub into a recurring Tier 1 Sub for just $1 (final price may vary by region, see FAQ below). And yes, streamers will still get the full amount from the Sub. To take advantage of this 80% off promotion, you need to have an active gifted subscription during 9/10–9/30 and commit to a paid subscription during this time.
If you’ve already set up your subscription to renew between 9/10 and 9/30, you can still take advantage of SUBTember pricing. To obtain the promotional price, you’ll need to cancel the Sub continuation at your subscriptions management page and then choose to continue the gift sub again between 9/10 and 9/30 .
Ready to support your favorite streams and keep access to all those custom badges and emotes? Below are the two ways to continue your subscription, and please note that this promotion is only available if you sign-up on a desktop web browser.
- Visit the Streamer’s channel and click “Continue” on the top of the video player
2. Visit your subscriptions management page and click on the “Gift Subscriptions” tab. Then find the streamer’s panel and click “Continue.”
Got more questions? We’ve got answers.
Q: I had a gift sub that was set to expire before 9/10 and I renewed it at the regular Tier 1 price. Can I retroactively get the promotional price?

Q: If I receive a gift sub to a channel I’ve never subbed to before, and after the gifted month I decide to continue the sub, does my tenure start at month one or month two?
Your tenure would continue as month two, because gifted subs count toward sub tenure. Don’t forget to share your resub notification in the channel.

The 3 and 6 month Subscription bundles do not qualify for this promotion.
Q: I committed to continue my subscription already, will I also get the promotional price?

Q: My gift sub continuation will hit in October, will I still get the promotional price?
You must commit to renew between 9/10 and 9/30 to qualify for the promotion price. If you already committed to a renewal date past 10/1 prior to the promotion start date, you will need to cancel your continuation at your subscriptions management page and continue the gift sub again to obtain the promotional price
