Buying gift sub like bits
The idea would be you could buy gift subs to distribute later, like bits. Example: You're watching a stream and have a nice convo with someone in chat, you click their name and you get the option to give them a sub from your "banked gift sub" instead of having to use your credit card.
So it would help the streamer you're currently watching and would be a nice gift to a non-sub viewer.
This is a great idea and has many benefits. For people gifting one at a time you don't have to go though the transaction approval over and over, and end up have "lots" of small transactions on your CC. (And often miss parts of the stream). Twitch gets the $ in there account earlier, so its got to be a win there. Lots of gifts can more easily be given to 'deserving' viewers. I really wonder where the large community gift bombs end up going, so many active chatters miss out. Would love to see this implemented and being able to pre-purchase 100 gift subs to be able to give out with just an easy right click and gift.
+1 to that
