Which games are on sale at the Steam Sale?

Which games are on offer in the respective Steam Sales is usually not communicated in advance. However, for those who can't stand the next promotion, there is the option of the weekly “Midweek Madness” (Tuesday, 7pm to Friday, 7pm) and the weekend offers (Thursday, 7pm to Monday , 7 p.m.). During these periods, new games are always offered on Steam at attractive prices.

But not all games find their way on sale. There are also games with stable prices. And of course you may want to grab a brand new title right away. In this case, we recommend the "Humble Monthly Bundle" in the premium version.

Tips for the Steam Sale

No steam sale without proper preparation! For this reason, we would like to conclude by giving you the most important tips.

1. Use your wish list!

Games that you like, but whose price is still too high, can be added to your wish list. Here you can find all your titles at a glance and see when they are discounted.

2. You can claim Steam games!

You have bought a game and after a short time you realize that this is absolutely nothing for you? No problem! You can return these bad purchases within 14 days if you haven't played them for more than two hours. You can find all information about "Refunds" here.

3. Set yourself a limit and think about your backlog!

So that there are no refunds in the first place, you should think carefully about which games you really want to play. Not every title with a 15 percent discount is necessarily promising - and could put unnecessary strain on your hard drive. Keep checking your wish list, because there are new offers every Tuesday and Thursday.

4. Use the free browser extension "Augmented Steam"

Do you use Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome? Very good! Because although “Enhanced Steam” is no longer available, there is still the possibility of a direct price comparison between the new discount of a game, older discounts and discounts from the competition - with “Augmented Steam”. Here you can download the practical browser add-on.
