The Steam Summer Sale is finally upon us in all its discounted glory. Depending on your financial situation, you’re either rejoicing or weeping. Perhaps a bit of both?
For those unfamiliar, there are nine daily deals that last 24 hours on the front page. There are also four flash sales, which update every 8 hours, and one community pick, which is based on community votes. Voting on the community pick also works you towards a steam trading card. Community picks remain on sale for 8 hours.
Even without the daily, flash, and community sales, a TON of games are marked down and priced to move.
Steam Summer Sale Pro Tip:
As a general rule of thumb, you should avoid purchasing anything that is NOT a daily or flash sale, as there’s a good chance its price will drop lower. For example, right now the Borderlands 2 GOTY is on sale for $15.99, but it’s not a daily or flash sale. A title like this one will inevitably end up as one of the daily or flash sales, and will likely go down to $14.99 (or perhaps even $9.99 – who knows?!).
Flash sale or not, there’s a few games you should definitely keep an eye out for:
- Borderlands 2 GOTY
- Don’t Starve
- Dark Souls 2
- Hotline Miami
- Bioshock Triple Pack (especially Infinite)
- Goat Simulator
