    Hint: only buy what is on sale. if you buy something that has a small discount but later on it could be on a daily sale or flash sale, you'll be sorry! Save those purchases for the last day.
    Also make sure you vote, keep getting cards. surely you'll get duplicates, sell those and spend those pennies on the cards you dont have yet to complete the badge.

    Badges from collecting cards are pointless, when you can purchase cards that were not earned!

    Remember Steam Sale math: if I buy games at 66% off, but only download and play 1/3 of those games, I'm paying full price for the games I actually do play. Don't say I didn't warn you! :)

    If Strike Vector goes on sale again, buy it. It's a cracking FPS dressed up as a space shooter. (And we need more players on the servers...)

    Damn! I was hoping to see 75-80% off upon release of some of the cool games we saw at E3 earlier this year but maybe I was just being a bit too optimistic.

    Ha, looks like the store crashed. I already bought my games though, so it isn't a big deal. As a rule of thumb, I only buy older games at $5 or less to make sure I don't over spend. My rig isn't quite powerful enough for the newer titles anyways. I find that gaming at a 2+ year delay can save you LOTS of money. My whole damn collection (~60 games) is probably worth like 15 new titles.

    I bought 9 games for $42 yesterday. I call that a success! The Bioshock triple pack is so tempting at $10!!!! HOLY MOLY STEAM WHY DO YOU DO THIS. My wallet is suffering greatly.
