Helpful STEAM SALE advice - add it if you dont see it!
Load your Steam wallet ahead of time since if you have credit card trouble, you will miss out on the flash or daily sale. If you have credit card/paypal problems, you can purchase a Steam card at target or Gamestop to load your account with.
Make a wishlist and shop from there, since its time consuming to look through thousands of games to find the good ones. TONS of awesome deals never make the front page or are hidden!
Make note of when the sale ends on the game you want. Some sales end before the steam sale and there will be a timer on the page to let you know how much longer is left.
Dont buy a game unless its a daily or flash sale, buy it the last day of the sale if you still want it. That way it wont go cheaper and you wont hate yourself for not waiting.
If the game is part of a series, always look at the other games in that series because sometimes they will give the same flash/daily discount without advertising it. Example: Farcry3 @ 75% off, the whole series is 75% off.
Buying the game and DLC separate can sometimes be cheaper than buying the full package. Compare prices and don't assume the package/ultimate/gold edition is the best value.
Vote as often as you can on the flash deals since that is usually tied to a free card that you can sell for steam credit.
Download the STEAM mobile app since you can vote and buy stuff from there in case you are away from your pc and missing out.
Sell your summer sale cards as soon as possible cause the price tanks mid sale and you wont get as much. you can always buy them back later at a super cheap price and still make money in the end.
Read the STEAM game forums before you buy a game you aren't sure about since there will ALWAYS be a "is this game worth $X.XX" thread that will always give you great advice.
Always try and be there when the sales change over since that is the best time to get in on the price mistakes. Steam usually catches it within minutes and you can sometimes snag a AAA game for a few bucks or one that wasn't suppose to go on sale.
Don't trade with people you dont know. There are millions of scammers on Steam and each one will be foaming at the bit to scam/steal your account/phish you during the sale in a trade. Steam wont help you if you get screwed. They have notoriously horrible customer service.
Join the slickdeals steam group to help trade games or cards in a safer environment. Steam sells multi-game packs that can be split up for a cheaper price than buying separately and some people prefer to trade this way.
If you enjoy a type of game, and want more like it but dont know where to start, ask in the thread. We can give you tons of advice on games just like it or others you may enjoy and opinions on price points. Steam doesn't always have the best deals anymore and might find it cheaper elsewhere.
