Weekly reminder that Steam do not choose the prices for sales, the developers/publishers of the game do.

I feel like they could just bring back flash sales and have a no refund policy for those.


You can still get "flash sale" deal prices for steam games when you buy from a site other than steam. That's because they sell keys and they don't allow refunds on keys.

Now if steam wanted to go into the key selling business themselves, that could be an option, but I'm pretty sure they'd get quite a few stupid people asking why they can't refund and why they didn't just get the game instead of a CD key.

tl;dr just buy on sites other than steam if you want deeper discounts.

getting a refund on a discounted game, is refunded at the discount price, not the normal price... They can track how much you paid for it.

I tried to return 1 game from a bundle, it doesn't work, was told I would get $0.12 for it. I opted to just wait it out, in hopes it gets a patch.
If what I said doesn't makes sense... it's because you don't want it to make sense.

In all honesty, it's kind of a bust now.


Well, it's modern day Valve now, can't be setting the prices too low!

^Isn't that why people pirate the game? To test if the game playable on their PC?

Id rather not get nasty viruses which most of them have.

There used to be deeper discounts before flash sales got axed to make the refund policy not living hell to deal with.

There'll probably be another sale like the summer sale around late October or in December, so there's not much need to wait for next summer. You can also find equally good sales throughout the year for individual games on isthereanydeal.com which tracks bargains on a bunch of different sites.

That site was very helpful, thank you!
