Are Steam flash deals similar to daily deals?

From the looks of it, yes. Should be a new one every two hours, with each sale lasting 6 hours.

This is the first time we've seen flash deals, but yes, they appear similar, just shorter timespans, and you don't know when a new game might come up as a flash deal.

Yeah, this makes the Steam summer sales much more interesting. But damn it... I have work today and I won't be back home till 12am....

But so far, I haven't seen anything good on the list yet.

Log in an purchase through Steam website, or install Steam app on your phone.

Even the phone app has a "sale" tab in the catalog, and shows you the daily deals and flash deals. <3 the phone app.

EDIT: What's more, if your home computer is on, you can actually remote-download your new purchases too now.

My droid phone isn't working correctly at the moment and I'm stuck with this crappy flip phone. How long do new flash deals last anyway? I'll only be working 8 hours.

6, 8, 10, and 12 hours for each game respecitively. You'll most likely miss one deal or two

I'm 98% sure that's just for the initial four. Then there will be a new one every two hours starting with the end of the first 6 hour one, and each new flash sale will last six hours. So there will be four flash sales going on at any given time.

Really, if you go to bed when a flash deal starts and when the community deal has plenty of time left, you should have no problems with going to sleep and not missing anything.
