What are some good Steam Summer Sale shopping tips?

  • You should add any games you're hoping to score for cheap to your Steam wishlist. This way, you'll get an email notification if one of those games goes on sale.
  • If the game you want isn't on sale right away, don't give up hope! Valve rolls out new deals every day throughout the duration of the sale.
  • Download the Steam mobile app for iOS or Android so you can keep track of deals and buy games on the go.
  • Don't feel compelled to buy a game just because it's on sale. Steam sales are infamous for leaving gamers with huge backlogs they'll never touch, and while it's never bad to have spare games handy for a rainy day, you should make sure you're spending your cash on titles you actually plan on playing.
