Year of the Piggybank
Fresh from his recently completed Winter Sale, Valve jumps right back into the festive wild-selling and money-saving spirit. This time it is for the celebration of the pig.
Steam holds a Lunar New Year Sale, which runs for a week between now and February 11. As usual, thousands of games are discounted to some extent, and there are probably a few real gems in Copenhagen. Your mileage can vary and all that.
This event has a broader appeal than specific game discounts. Everyone gets a one-time automatic $ 5 discount coupon on a game that is $ 30 or more. Valve says that this coupon applies to "qualifying purchases" (whatever that means), but it must be good for most things that exceed the $ 30 threshold. In a "the more you buy, the more you save" the twist, you can earn tokens by buying games; These tokens can be redeemed on the Rewards Bid for multiple coupons, badges, profile pages, etc.
The cherry on top of the Steam Lunar New Year Sale is revealed by the third annual Steam Prize. These will be announced on Friday, February 8th. All the nominees can be found here. The winners will probably find themselves discounted for the last day of sales. It's about selling games, baby.
