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. And while my advice largely stays the same, things change year to year and there are some other considerations that need to be taken. One of the biggest changes to Steam happened very recently with the addition of their refund policy. And of course, every year Steam has something different up their sleeve for the community with fun events. So, let’s get started!
So, I’ve been hearing some whisperings about the Steam Summer Sale could be starting today @ 1 pm ET! There’ve been claims that people have seen backgrounds in Big Picture mode stating the sale is set for June 19th to 30th. There’s also the Mysterious trading cards that have appeared in the badges inventory. It’s fairly early for the sale, but I think this is an excellent time for one! High schools will be finishing up with their exams, colleges and universities have been out already, and summer is just beginning. This gives all us gamers the whole summer to enjoy our ever building backlog ‘o games and hopefully shrink it down a bit.
Last sale I made a post with some advice about the sale. I’ll reiterate them again here with a few extra tips.
