While many games let you buy items outright, Overwatch only offers items through Loot Boxes. You earn one each time you level up, but can also purchase them with real money if you want a certain item and need to speed up the process.
But if you’re an Amazon Prime member, there’s a special gift waiting for you: anyone who’s part of the Twitch Prime service can grab five Loot Boxes for free. This offer is only available until September 10 — after that, another free set will appear in October.
Start by visiting the Twitch Prime Overwatch page. If you’re not already signed in, click the purple Sign In button in the top-right of the page. Sign into your Twitch account, then authorize a link to your Amazon account if you haven’t already. Amazon Prime members only, of course!
After this, re-visit the page and you’ll see a code that you can enter into Blizzard’s redemption page. Sign into your Blizzard account (also used for Overwatch on PC) and enter the code to redeem your Loot Boxes.
After that, if you play Overwatch on PC, simply pop open the game as normal and you’ll see your boxes waiting for you. For PS4 or Xbox One players, follow the steps to link your Blizzard account to your PSN or Xbox Live account, then your Loot Boxes will show up in-game. Hopefully you’ll get some good items in your Loot Boxes!
