Some seven months ago, Amazon and Twitch began offering anyone with a Prime membership one year of Switch Online for free. A surprisingly great deal despite the already affordable price tag, especially considering how many gamers are already Prime members. Not only has the value on a Switch Online membership grown considerably since then, but there are just days before the whole promotion shuts down and you’re stuck paying full price again.

Plus Free NES/SNES Games:

This promotion was already a fantastic one, but since the free Switch Online promo kicked off, Nintendo has brought loads of notable content to the service. Not only has it continually dished up new NES games since mid-2018 free of charge, Nintendo is now offering a collection of titles from the coveted SNES library as part of your Switch online subscription. That list is already 20 strong and features some of the best games in history. Although, the big N just announced that the monthly additions were no more, we do expect that list to continue to grow in the future.
