How much are Steam sale discounts?

The discounted price you get on Steam games during this time can vary dramatically.

Typically, larger more well known games will be discounted between 30 and 50% in price.

However, you’ll sometimes find games that are sold with up to 90% off their original price. So, it’s usually worth checking out.

Are there any other Steam sales?

There are occasionally some other Steam sale dates but they occur pretty randomly.

For example there was the Steam Golden week sale that occur in May 2021, which was a big discount on Japanese games. However, this wasn’t repeated the next year.

Steam also used to run a lunar sale, however this seems to have been stopped also with Steam favouring the four quarterly sales each year.

All you need to do is add games to your Steam wishlist throughout the month instead of buying them immediately. Then, during sales you can head to your wishlist and buy.

Steam sales are an amazing chance to get your favourite games at fraction of the original price, and Steam offers many discounts across the board during the Steam sale periods. So, make sure to tell your friends about the next Steam sale.
