GTA 5 is free (almost) on Amazon for Twitch Prime members with this one-day deal

GTA 5's been a best-selling game ever since it first came out in 2013, and it's no coincidence that the open-world crime game rarely gets good discounts. Consider this a happy little holiday miracle: Amazon is not only offering GTA 5 on both PS4 and Xbox One for $14.99 (half off its current $29.99 price tag), it's also giving out $15 in store credit for Twitch Prime members who buy today only.

In other words, if you're a Twitch Prime member - which is an included benefit of Amazon Prime - and are planning on making any more Amazon purchases in the near future - your purchase of GTA 5 could be pretty darn close to free.

GTA 5 PS4 for $14.99 (with a Twitch Prime bonus of $15 credit) at Amazon
Pick up Rockstar's modern open-world classic on PS4 for half off of its normal price, or free-ish with the store credit bonus for Twitch Prime members. 

GTA 5 Xbox One for $14.99 (with a Twitch Prime bonus of $15 credit) at Amazon
Enjoy endless open-world shenanigans on Xbox One at a half off discount that's even better for Twitch Prime members: a $15 Amazon Store credit makes it more or less free. 

There is some fine print on this deal. As I said before, the Amazon Store credit bonus is only for Twitch Prime members, though it's easy (and free) to get signed up if you're already an Amazon Prime member. The $15 in promotional credit will be distributed to your account within a week and it will expire on January 31, 2019. So if you don't think you'll be doing any more Amazon shopping by then, it won't do you much good. But this time of year it's distressingly easy to make repeated shopping trips on Amazon, so I'm not too worried about it.

I'm shipping the order to one of my friends as a Christmas present since I already own GTA 5. And yes, I told him it was effectively free - but you can always neglect to mention that part if you want to make your gift-giving generosity seem more magnanimous!
