There's a hidden bundle of free stuff behind Amazon Prime, and it takes the form of Prime Gaming.

While we're searching around for the best deals during Prime Day, you don't need to actually spend a penny to get a stack of games for free. Fortunately for us all, it's not hidden all that well, given you can find Prime Gaming with just a few clicks. Even more fortunately, it's also integrated with Amazon Prime automatically, so you don't have to pay a dime extra to get your hands on it.  As long as you've got Amazon Prime it's just there, silently lurking in the background while you buy your usual bundles of toilet paper and economy sized bags of sugar-free gummy bears. As part of Prime Day, you'll even get access to a special bundle of free games as long as you go grab them today.

So what all does Prime Gaming really give you? Let's stroll down gaming lane and peer into the shadowy corners that conceal the freebies.

You get a free monthly Twitch subscription from Prime Gaming

Over on Twitch, subscriptions, or subs for short, are the best way to directly support streamers that you're a fan of. All you have to do is head over to Prime Gaming's Twitch linking page and add your Twitch. Once that's done, you should be able to sub as normal to any streamer you'd like, but use your free Prime sub instead, but if you get stuck Twitch breaks down how to use it here.

Either way, it's a great way to be able to support your favorite streamer without having to spend extra from your gaming budget.
