Cheap Steam Gift Cards Are Back In Stock As Steam Summer Sale Continues
Here's an easy trick for saving even more money at Steam.
[Update 7/3: The $100 gift card is back in stock for a limited time.]
PC gaming giant Steam just launched its annual summer sale, offering huge discounts across the board on thousands of PC games, and now you can save even more with this great deal on Steam gift cards. For a limited time, $100 and $50 Steam gift cards at MassGenie cost only $85 and $43, respectively. An additional 15% off when you're already seeing discounts of 50-75% is the cherry on top of a savings sundae. Here's how to get the deal.
Enter the code STEAMDC100 or STEAMGIFTCARD50 at checkout to apply the discount. Per usual with MassGenie deals, ignore the ominous, 24-hour clock counting down on the side of the page--the offer is valid until June 30, or while supplies last. [Update: The $100 gift card will now be available until July 13, or while supplies last.]
Keep in mind, you may find that some Steam games are even cheaper outside of the Steam sale right now. But if you are buying through Steam, doing so with a discounted gift card will ensure you get some great savings.
This year, the Steam sale includes a new mini-game in its Grand Prix theme. Users select a team for a race (among Hare, Corgi, Cockatiel, Pig, and Tortoise) and then complete quests in their various games to earn points toward a boost, which then helps their team do better in the race. Supporters of the winning teams will earn free games from their Steam wishlists, so be sure to get yours up to date once you join a team.
We'll be posting more highlights from the sale as it goes on, but for starters, check out our favorite overall deals. Also, be sure to take a look at the best games under $10, since that category explodes during this time of year with some absolute steals. Not to be outdone, Fanatical also has its own Red Hot summer sale going on right now with a lot of great deals on Steam codes as well. Fanatical is worth keeping tabs on in general, since they often have better deals than Steam does directly, so be sure to compare prices to make sure you're getting the best deal possible.
