Twitch's SUBtember promotion begins today - here's how it works

Twitch's annual subscription promotion has returned for 2018, and it brings good news to those that have been gifted a channel subscription.

SUBtember allows users with gift subscriptions to add another month for just $1. Not only is that a bargain for the viewer, the streamer in question still gets a full $4.99 if someone re-subscribes during the promotion.

The promotion begins today (September 9th) and will run until September 30th. It only applies to tier one subs priced at $4.99 usually.

To be clear, the offer is only available to those who have an active gifted sub and wish to extend it for another month. New subscribers cannot take advantage of the deal.

It's worth nothing that the promotion won't work if a user renews through mobile versions of Twitch. Make sure to renew via the desktop browser version. 

It's a bit confusing compared to Twitch's SUBtember game last year, but Twitch Partner FrankThePegasus has made a handy flow chart to explain how it works. Check that out below.
