Twitch has announced the launch of official gift cards that fans can use on the platform to support their favorite streamers.
After recently rolling out a new look for channel pages, Twitch is now concentrating on how to make it easier for streaming fans to spend money on its platform – supporting their favorite creators and taking part in the community – with digital or physical gift cards.
Twitch gift cards make great gifts for moderators, emote artists, and friends in chat. Digital gift cards are available online at twitch.tv/giftcard and are come in a range of different designs for events like birthdays, graduations, or other seemingly random celebratory moments.
The digital cards can be bought in $25, $50, $100, and $200 values, but Twitch is also launching physical cards that will be available at Best Buy and GameStop soon, with values ranging from $15 to $200.
Twitch gift cards can be redeemed and used for Bits (virtual “currency” used to support streamers or celebrate in chat), subs (recurring subscriptions that support streamers and unlocks subscriber perks), and gift subs (subscriptions that can be given to others).
To redeem a Twitch gift card, however, the recipient will need to be residing in the US and will, of course, need to have a Twitch account. Once redeemed, the card is void, and the full amount on the card is transferred to the recipient’s gift card balance in their Twitch Wallet.
