At the present time, spending from a few hundred to several million out of pocket money to buy the game you love about playing is no longer a luxury and “crazy” thing anymore.
Just like the items in the market, in the shop … the game markets often have big discounts during the year to leave the opportunity to “pickpocket” our gamers, for example, the game market.

I. Tips for hunting game discounts to get your favorite games on Steam
As you all know, Steam has a tradition of launching very deep sales on special occasions of the year.
Which can name some names like Black Friday, Summer Sale, Autumn Sale, Winter Sale or occasion Halloween And coming here will be a huge sale this year – Lunar New Year Sale 2021.
On the occasion of the 2021 Tan Suu Lunar New Year, one of the typical cultural features of not only the Vietnamese people, but also Southeast Asian and East Asian countries as well.
A sale will take place from 5 days to 1 week, not long but enough for you to choose the games you love.
Besides, almost every product on Steam will get a discount, with a small price of 10-20% and a big price of 99%. This is also the reason that creates the attraction of these sales, such deep discounts do not buy any fees!
Specifically, the occasion Lunar New Year Sale will officially take place on
11/2/2021 (December 30, 2020 lunar calendar) until
15/2/2021 (6/1/2021 New Year’s Day), that is about 5 days.
In addition, you can also look at the time of the big sales in 2021:
- Steam Spring Sale 2021: Usually around the end of May, early June. However, in 2019 and 2020, there is no Spring Sale event, it is unclear whether Steam intends to leave it or not.
- Steam Summer Sale 2021: The event takes place at the end of June 2021
- Steam Halloween Sale 2021: The event takes place around November 2021
- Steam Black Friday / Autumn Sale 2021: These 2 events will take place in November 2021 respectively.
- Steam Winter Sale 2021: This last sale will take place in the final months of 2021.
In the list above then
Summer Sale and
Winter Sale are 2 events that will have the best deals, in the past there were a few memorable discounts like games
Portal 2 of the
Valve from $ 50 down to $ 5 after 1 year of launch
And below are some tips you should refer to to be able to hunt your favorite game in these sales!
#first. Use the Steam Store Wishlist to hunt for discounted games
Every time you see a game and quite like it, but because the conditions are not yet allowed (maybe the game has not launched or you have not enough money to buy), please click
Thêm vào Wishlist (Add to your wishlist) to add
And when the game you have added to Wishlist has any updated changes, especially discounts, you’ll get instant notifications, without missing a single one.
Wishlist have numbers
9 next to => this represents the number of games and DLCS you have added to the list
Wishlist => click on the word
Wishlist This is for details.
So from now on, I no longer have to search for each game I like to see if it has a discount, just log in to Steam to get information about that game, as long as it is. in the item
I don’t know how many products you can add here, but I can never add them all 😀
In addition, if you have missed a bit more, you can also use the search box or the filters (Sort by, Filers) above to make the search easier.
#2. Use the list of typical discount games, games by genre
Every sale will have great games, popular games with very deep discounts and Steam has a complete list of games like this for you to refer to.
You just scroll down the middle of the home page to see a list of these typical discount games. All you need to do is just browse to see which games are suitable for your hobby and budget.
If you can’t buy it right away, you can add it to Wishlist and wait until the next sale to buy. In addition, when you hover over any game, Steam will display the full version and price so you can see quickly without having to click to watch anymore.
And if the typical game list does not meet your needs because it is quite messy and you only like a few certain genres?
Now you use the list of games by topic or genre, scroll down a little more you will see this list.
It will help you find games of the genre you like, not confused with other game genres. For those who just love to play racing games, games playable with PS4 controllers, this list is extremely useful 😀
# 3. Use the discount game list on SteamDB.Info
A familiar name, isn’t it, we have used it to evaluate our Steam account before, you can find and review.
SteamDB provides us with a lot of information related to Steam, including a list of games that are on sale the moment you access SteamDB.
Perform: First of all visit the page

You can use SteamDB’s built-in filters to easily find great titles that are on deep sale or your favorite game, most importantly, there are 2 options.

Show green discounts only.
- Blue discounts is a deep discount for a game that has never been booked before.
- Still Green discounts are games with the same price reduction as the deepest discount.

# 4. Note Game + DLCs packages instead of retail
In addition to retail games, many game publishers also offer game packs that include games and DLCs at a cheaper price than when you buy a lot.
Especially on big Sale occasions, you can buy the game with all its DLCs at a great price, believe me. Do you need examples?
Racing Pack of the
EA Below are the famous racing games for a while, the initial price or if you buy retail, it can be up to 4,000,000 VND, but in the sale it only has over 1,000,000, it’s too good.
Well, above are some of the experience hunting game discounts on Steam that I have had after the last 2 Sale seasons.
