The GTA Online Prime Gaming benefits are an added incentive offered by Rockstar to players who are signed up with Amazon, providing them not only with significant discounts on various in-game items, but also regular drops of GTA$ and occasional properties completely free of charge. These reward are available because GTA Online is included in the Prime Gaming benefits program (previously known as Twitch Prime), so players linking their game accounts with Amazon can receive exclusive loot and other bonuses in the online world.

Of course, we all like to receive free stuff, but there are a few steps you need to take first to get your bonus content and the process isn't exactly crystal clear. That's why we're here to help, so follow our guide and we'll explain exactly how to claim your GTA Online Prime Gaming benefits.

Once you've linked up your Social Club and Prime Gaming accounts, you'll receive exclusive premium discounts on items within the game each week.
