It’s that time again… Steam Summer Sale time! This year the sale is starting even earlier than it did last year and will run from June 11-21, 2015. With E3 just around the corner it’s going to be a busy time for gaming. For the past 2 years I’ve made posts about tips on saving money through these sales.

As a veteran Steam sale shopper and self-proclaimed gaming deal hunter this is one of the sales I look forward to all year. I love the Winter Sale too, but I feel under pressure at that time of year with shopping for gifts and not to mention the guilt of spending money for myself on things I kinda don’t need… So, summer feels much more relaxed!
