Changing sales

Steam’s sales have changed a lot over the years. Previously the biggest discounts could be found in the store’s Daily and Flash sales, where games and bundles would be heavily discounted for just a few hours at a time.

However last year Valve ditched the process, meaning that once a game is discounted for the general sale, you’ll be able to buy it without worrying about a bigger discount coming at a later date.

It’s unlikely that Daily and Flash deals will return this year, especially since the change netted Valve more money than ever before in its Steam Summer Sale.
