Twitch Prime members can basically get Grand Theft Auto 5 for free, today only


Since its release in 2013, Grand Theft Auto 5 has sold more than 90 million copies, making it one of the bestselling media releases ever. The success is in large part thanks to the multiplayer mode, Grand Theft Auto Online, which is still drawing in players some five years after the game was released.

Today only, Amazon is discounting Grand Theft Auto 5 by $15, bringing the price down to $14.99. That deal applies to both the physical and digital versions of Grand Theft Auto 5 on Xbox One, and only the physical version on PlayStation 4. GTA 5 has recently been on sale for $20, but $15 is the lowest we’ve seen the game at Amazon since its release.

Twitch Prime members, though, can get the full price of the game refunded by Amazon via an email credit. Amazon is throwing in a $15 credit that can be used on anything sold by Amazon. A code will be sent to your inbox after your order ships.

Twitch Prime is free with an Amazon Prime membership; you just need to link a Twitch account to your Amazon account. In addition to periodic promotions like this one and all of the benefits of Amazon Prime, Twitch Prime includes in-game loot and a free channel subscription every month.

If you’re giving a PS4 or Xbox One for the holidays this year, or just got a new console during Black Friday, Grand Theft Auto 5 is a great add-on. No one has to know you got it for basically nothing.
