    STEAM SALE GOLDEN RULE: READ THIS FIRST!
    Do not buy anything that is not a daily deal till the last day of the sale. The reason is said game could become a daily deal and be cheaper. Saving a buck or two like this equals another game in a sale like this. In *most* cases if a game is 75% off already it wont get cheaper though.

    10 minutes remaining....

    FAST

    how much do you plan on spending and what titles are you waiting??

    My goals for this sale is to find a 75% dishonored discount
    and a 66% xcom would be GREAT
    and to get darksiders 2 too... but i think it will be hard to find a better deal than amazons...

    i plan on spending 40-50 bucks TOP

    I'm going to add $50 to my Steam Wallet and hope that it is enough to last me through the sale, I'll add another $25 if I find a late deal that's too good to pass.

    That's what I normally do. The wallet thing is just to stick to my budget.
