The Steam Summer Sale comes earlier than we have expected
(Mirror Daily, United States) – Gamers everywhere have been waiting impatiently for the start date of the Steam Summer Sale, but Valve has not revealed anything official yet. However, leaks are here to ease their wait, and it seems that it won’t be long until the sale starts. This time, it was PayPal’s turn once again to release the news.
PayPal tweeted a revealing message regarding the sale
The UK Twitter account of PayPal was responsible with releasing the rumors regarding the Steam Summer Sale, and it seems we won’t have to wait for long. In fact, we will almost not have to wait at all. The message revealed that the summer sale should start on Thursday, June 22nd.
Everything should start at 6 p.m. BST (meaning 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET). PayPal suggests that the news is official. However, Valve hasn’t made any announcements yet, but the rumors seem to be true. PayPal also comes with a special offer celebrating the start of the summer sale, which should be available at least in UK.
Special promotions for this year’s Steam Summer Sale
This promotion helps you save some money. More precisely, for each £20 spent on the Steam Summer Sale, you get to save £5. However, this is available only if you use PayPal as a payment method. Even so, the deal is pretty great if you have big plans this sale.
The offer is available until July 5th, which should mark the end of the sale. This should work as further proof that the dates are official, since they fit perfectly a Reddit image which appeared last month and claimed the summer sale should last from June 22nd to July 5th.
Valve will probably bring no major changes to this year’s sale, so you should expect a regular process. Previously, Valve used to rotate the deals at fixed intervals during the day, so you had to wait for those you were interested in. However, they seem to have given up this technique.
