Steam is, without a doubt, the most popular and most used gaming platform on PC. It was released by Valve in 2003 as an independent digital distribution software. It started as a way to offer the latest updates to Valve games from that era, like Counter-Strike, Half-Life, etc. But it is now the largest PC gaming platform that has over thousands of popular and exclusive eSports games and titles like Counter Strike: Global Offensive, DOTA 2 and Team Fortress 2.

Each year, Steam has numerous sales throughout the year. This includes Lunar New Year Sale, Spring Sale, Summer Sale, Halloween Sale, Black Friday/Autumn Sale, Winter Sale 2020. Among all these sales the Steam Summer Sale and the Winter Sale are the largest ones.

Just a few weeks ago we got news of Steam Summer Sale 2020, and the news was totally accurate. It was regarding the start of the Steam Summer Sale which was leaked to be June 25. Now, it turned to be totally accurate. The Steam Summer Sale is LIVE! This year’s summer sale will last for 2 weeks just like other year’s summer sale.

In this Summer Sale, we also are introduced to a new Points Shop, which will be available always. Just as the name suggests, you earn points by making purchases on the Steam store and can later use the points to redeem various rewards. You get 132 points for every 100 INR you spend on the Steam store. It can be for anything there, a game, a DLC, an application, a soundtrack, or an in-game item.  As stated before, you can use the points to redeem various types of rewards. These include Animated Avatars, Frames, Backgrounds, Badges and Chat items. Now, you can get your favorite game’s rewards which were associated with the Badges by spending the points. Whatever you redeem is yours to keep forever. Another thing to note is that these rewards are not tradeable or marketable.
