Twitch Subscription Incentive Program - 2021

Summary (the TL; DR):
1) Subscribe (and renew) to twitch.tv/swccgpc
2) Provide proof of hitting milestones & your address via PM to Jnapolit31
3) Win-win-win: PC receives financial support for SWCCG streaming efforts, you receive exclusive foil v-slips and poker chips, the Game gets more visibility


Here in January, we have a good opportunity to refresh/remind/inform members of the community of the Twitch Subscription Incentive Program. Many of the below items will not be new to many of you, but hopefully a fresh forum thread that consolidates the key points of several prior strings related to this program will help this process run smoothly in 2021.

Why subscribe? Subscribing to the official PC Twitch - twitch.tv/swccgpc - is a great way highlight the active community we have and generate positive exposure for the game. We urge members of the community who have a Twitch account to not only Follow the PC’s Twitch channel, but also subscribe.

How to subscribe: Subscribing comes in two forms - normal, paid Twitch subscriptions and an allotted free Prime Gaming subscription (formerly Twitch Prime) if you have Amazon Prime.

For Normal ones, these cost money each month, but ultimately such funds would be more optimally utilized by the PC through donations. If someone wanted to directly contribute to the PC, use this link: https://www.starwarsccg.org/donations/. Regardless, if you are able and willing to subscribe to the PC’s Channel via this method, don’t worry - you are eligible to receive the incentives outlined below, just like those who use their Prime Gaming subscription on SWCCGPC.

For Prime Gaming subscriptions, these are free. If you have an Amazon Prime account and a Twitch account and are not using your one free subscription for any other Twitch channel, you can quickly and easily subscribe to twitch.tv/swccgpc; in doing so, you’ll earn Twitch Incentives, earn the PC money which will be used directly for streaming expenses, and further build a presence on Twitch of SWCCG.

Here’s a step-by-step walkthrough to link and subscribe on Prime Gaming - thanks to ARebelSpy for making this. Note that the website has been re-branded from Twitch Prime, but the steps are substantially the same (I know because I did this process myself):
viewtopic.php?f=188&t=70676&hilit=twitch+prime

When is this relevant for? You can start subscribing today! And, subscribers will get credit for their retroactive months - assuming they have not yet already received their earned incentives from Chris Gogolen. Two times per year calendar year (middle, end), based on submissions since the last round of shipments, incentives will be re-stocked and shipped, but potentially shipped more frequently if feasible to combine with other physical prize support and if the slips are in stock.

What do I have to do? The means by which you receive your Twitch Incentives include: take a screen shot your Subscriptions screen on your Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/subscriptions), which shows total months subscribed to the SWCCGPC channel and consecutive months, and then send a PM on the Forums with this screen shot to Jnapolit31, along with your mailing address. You may also send this screenshot to Jared on Slack via DM to JaredNap. Be sure your Twitch handle is included in the screenshot. Note sending your proof to Jared is new vs. prior years, where Gogolen would receive the proof.

FAQ’s -
Do my months need to be consecutive for the milestones above? No, they do not.
Where does the money go that the PC is earning through this process? The money goes directly towards making streaming at events better, flying commentators to live events, updating/purchasing streaming equipment, and other streaming related items.
Do my subscriptions automatically renew? Normal (paid) Twitch subscriptions do renew automatically, but Prime Gaming subscriptions must be manually renewed each month. We recommend setting a calendar reminder for yourself (e.g., in Outlook or Google Calendar) - this process takes about a minute, but cannot be done until the current month has completed. Prime Gaming has a grace period of a few days (believed to be 7) to renew, while preserving your streak.
What’s the difference between Follow and Subscribe on Twitch? Follow’ing is free and just involves receiving notifications and other benefits; Subscribe’ing has additional benefits, but comes with a monthly charge, with the exception of the one-per-account free Prime Gaming subscription.
I think I’m owed stuff - who do I contact? If you believe you have outstanding, accrued Twitch Incentives by reaching the milestone increments above in 2020 and previously, PM Jnapolit31 on the Forums or DM JaredNap on Slack.
What screen do I need to capture to provide as proof for my months? Click on your icon on your Twitch page, then Subscriptions.
I have a question - who do I ask? PM Jnapolit31 and he will answer or find an answer for you.

May the Force Be with You! And see you on Twitch!

The original foil list from JNap got me subscribing, this is going to make me hit my renewals to the day!

Thanks for all your help and hoping to get a good streak going for myself and the PC here to try to accumulate as many months as I can. Win win!

Just to confirm, do we have to let our Prime subscription expire before we can do the free renewal? I tried to renew for February, and it's only giving me the tier 1 $3.99/mo option. I am guessing it may have to do with the fact that my Amazon Prime is on a monthly renewal, rather than annual.

Yes with prime renewals, you have to let it expire first. They don't auto renew either.

Right, but as long as I subscribe in February, the consecutive month streak won't lapse?

I think so, but you don't need a consecutive streak for anything other than bragging rights.

Interesting. I just hope I have something more brag-worthy than clicking a few times once per month.

I think it is 10 days to not lose it. But we did away with it for prizes.

If you click the drop-down arrow on the subscribe button it'll tell you "your next free prime subscription is available on[date]"

In March I will have 12 total months subscribed via Prime. As I have not submitted for the incentive before, if I submit next month, would I receive the 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, and 12 months incentives, or does one have to submit after each of those milestones in order to receive that milestone's particular incentive?

You’d receive each of the incremental incentives when you submit. Don’t have to do it right after you hit each one

Is there a way to see how many total months we've subscribed?
