How To Get A Free Twitch Subscription For Amazon Prime

Millions of people play the game Animal Crossings New Horizons. Anyone who plays it knows that getting items whether they be furniture or materials can be arduous. Some people even resort to near begging for things on Facebook groups. Sometimes people on Facebook give half-truth advise on how to move forward in the game by vaguely pointing out that oh you should get on Twitch, you can do it for free and then get treasure islands. But to those who are not used to all of this tech and app mumbo jumbo that us techies use this is hardly an answer. And though people mean well, they are not about to explain a multistep process over Facebook. So that’s where we come in. Because that is exactly what the Streaming Advisor does.

Those in the gaming community will already be familiar with the website and app, Twitch.  Often in groups associated with the games, you will see someone refer to “treasure islands”. Those are not actual places a player can travel to in the game by requests like other built-in options such as Harv’s island or an island you go to with a nook miles ticket or via the frog/boat captain. The term treasure islands (in the context of Animal Crossing) is an invention of the gaming community.

This guide will walk you step by step with how to set up a twitch account, how to link your Twitch account with your Amazon Prime account, and how to link your Twitch account to another app/service called Discord. You will need to be able to do all three to truly take advantage of these treasure islands and Twitch streamer subscriptions.

So before we get into the nuts and bolts which you can skip to be scrolling to How To Set Up a Free Twitch Subscription, here is some basic background to get you familiar with all of those terms.

What Are Treasure Islands?

Treasure islands are islands maintained by people who play the game as well, where they place hundreds of items for users to just pick up and leave with. They can include everything in the game from villagers to gold nuggets, household items, and building materials.

What is Twitch?

Twitch is a game streaming platform where people play games and stream what they are doing live. If the idea of watching people play a game and talk about seems crazy to you, it is understandable, but it has become a huge thing over the past 10 years to a point where advertisers pay people to show commercials on their twitch channels while they play. Animal Crossings New Horizons is just one of many games with players that can be found on Twitch.

The Twitch home page is a busy mess. See our picture below to find the signup button.

What is Discord?

Discord is an online community where people gather to chat and share information about topics they love. There is no telling how many topics are discussed there but for the context of this treasure island business, we will just say that if a person has a twitch channel to show their gameplay and display treasure islands, then they almost definitely also have a Discord server, which on the user end just looks like a complicated chat room. If you visit Twitch and watch a treasure island stream, you will see chats where users are encouraged to subscribe in order to get access to the streamer’s Discord. It is free to join Discord.

What does it mean to subscribe to a Twitch Streamer?
