I find it easier to see all sales on Steamdb. You can see all the lowest historical prices too.

Don't forget to go through your discovery queue twice and to vote for The Steam Awards. You get 1 card for voting and 2 cards from the discovery queue. Can do this once per day. You can craft the badge or sell the cards for extra funds for this sale Smiling Face With Open Mouth

You might want to wait a bit. There seems to be a bunch of inconsistencies on the website. The price of Age of Empires II HD on my wishlist is 75% off from CDN$ 21.99 to CDN$ 5.49. When you visit the store page, you don't see the discount.

Wait until the Bestbuy website crashes on Boxing Day.

That'll be year 10 in a row and you would think they would've learned to upgrade their servers by now too

Why would they upgrade the servers when it only experiences heavy load at one time each day? You log on 6 hours from now and it would be fine.

It's just people experiencing FOMO.

Every year without fail, people treat the steam sales like the products would sell out, and wreck the servers on the first day.
