That's right, running from December 21st to January 4th, Steam will be running its Winter Sale! Expect deep cuts and be prepared to check our own personal curator for recommendations for where to look if your wishlist is looking barren or if you just want to learn about more games!
Now, before you go on your wild hunt for gems, here are a few things to note:
While the Steam Sale is nice, it may also be smart to look to other sites for better deals.GreenmanGaming, Gamers Gate, WinGameStore, Nuuvem, and Amazon are just a few examples that always have incredible deals, so don't limit yourself. In fact, these sites often have competitive discounts specifically because Steam is having their annual sale, so they are certainly worth checking out. Having said that, keep the previous tip in mind.
Put games on your wishlist. If there's a game you really want and you don't want to have to keep looking at the Steam Sale for a better deal, put the game on your wishlist so that you will get e-mails about deals for games on your wishlist. If you want a more immediate and versatile means of getting deals, isthereanydeal allows you to import your Steam Wishlist (or just search for games) and have deals from a plethora of trusted sites and Steam emailed to you. What's more, you can check the deal price against the lowest the price for that specific game has ever gone, letting you know if you're getting a good deal. The site is highly recommended.
