How To Get Free Bits On Twitch

You don't have to pay for bits on Twitch if you don't want to. Here's a guide on how to get free bits on Twitch very easily.

After Bits were introduced to Twitch, they immediately became the platform’s official and signature currency. Needless to say, the Bits system is well-designed and works excellently as a way to support content creators.

According to the Twitch community, supporting streamers by “cheering” with Bits is the new official way to donate. So far, there has only been positive feedback about it.

With that said, Bits are more than just a Twitch feature. They are a currency which on the platform are treated as seriously as “traditional” money.

Both broadcasters and viewers are constantly looking for new ways to get free Twitch Bits, and if you are too, we will teach you exactly how to do that in the guide below.

Without further ado, here’s what you need to know.

Twitch Bits Farming Through Surveys

It was once possible for viewers to earn Twitch Bits by watching advertisements. This was probably the most time-effective method of “farming” this currency.

However, Twitch decided to cancel that, and now the only remaining way to earn free Bits on Twitch is by completing surveys.

Luckily, it’s easy to do and doesn’t require much effort, but you shouldn’t expect to make serious amounts as surveys usually only appear once or twice per month.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Open TwitchRPG in your browser of choice.
    Note: This is a website created by the Twitch staff, and the RPG acronym stands for Research Power Group. The site is safe and used by many Twitch community members.
  2. The sign-in process begins with entering your e-mail address in the relevant field, as shown in the image below.

    Note: If you are not a member, create an account by clicking Join our community and completing the registration process.

While registering, the website will ask you to choose a country. Please note that some countries are not eligible, and if you happen to live in one of them, you will be unable to complete the surveys to earn bits.

That is why we recommend choosing one of the more popular countries. In our case, the United Kingdom worked just fine. If any geo-related issues occur, you can always activate a VPN. We have a thorough guide for the best VPN products if you don’t know where to start.

After choosing a country, a Connect with Twitch button will appear on your screen. Connect your Twitch account, and you can proceed.

The website will sign you in, and the first thing you will see is your dashboard on the welcoming screen.

On the left side, there is a section called “Latest Activities,” which displays a list of surveys you can complete. Note that this will often be empty, as surveys are not always available.

You can access these survey invitations via the e-mail address you used when creating your TwitchRPG account, which is why it is crucial to use a genuine e-mail that you regularly check to ensure you don’t miss any notifications.

When you receive an e-mail invite to complete a survey, it will include a “Click here to start” button that begins the survey.

The e-mail survey invitation from TwitchRPG will also include some details on the number of Bits you will receive by completing the survey, the time before they get added to your account, and more.

You can repeat this process every time a new survey is available. Slowly but surely, you’ll start accumulating Bits that you can use to cheer on different Twitch channels.

That’s all you need to know!

Although these surveys can be rare, they are still an opportunity worth chasing if you want to earn Bits in your spare time. The best part is that you can complete them while watching your favorite streamers.
