This year’s promotion was announced with a graphic that revealed a major discount for gifted subscriptions.

This SUBtember, users who have been gifted a subscription can continue the service into the next month for just one dollar. Better yet, this discount doesn’t affect streamers - creators will still receive the full subscription amount, with Twitch providing the rest of the revenue payout.
However, there is a catch - the sale only applies to subs gifted within the month of September. Those who’ve gifted subs, rejoice - the 'giftee' can continue their subscription for the low price of a single George Washington.
Users have been raving about the news on social media, with many streamers delighted at the prospect of gifted subscribers getting a chance to resub at a heavily reduced price.
