xXBatmanXx has good advice about waiting until Jan. 3 to buy anything that isn't a daily deal.

Make sure you check bundles associated with games too. There's some ridiculous savings like LOOM for $2.50 vs. a bundle of LOOM, The Dig, Indy 3, and Indy 4 for the same $2.50. If you want to see Steam's games sorted by price, a Google Spreadsheet of all the prices was posted to reddit; it can sort by price (column C) or savings (column D), and is much quicker than Steam's bogged down servers.

Several of the Impulse deals above are dead. Looks like Assassin's Creed, Demigod, Elven Legacy, GC2, Prototype, and Spore are all over (even though the promotion page remains, the coupon is dead when added to the cart).

Civilization 4 Complete on Impulse is at a new URL: CIVIVCOM instead of just CIVIV. The one linked in the post is the old (dead) vanilla Civ 4 deal which Impulse accidentally advertised as being the complete edition. To make up for it they added the deal on the real complete edition which will be displayed on the 24th, but it's already active now if you go to the page. It's $20, which is cheaper than Steam currently has it.

I wonder why Microsoft thinks people would use a store that you can't even see prices for in a web browser. It's not worth installing the client to check, BTW. As an example, Viva Pinata (even at 50% off!) is still more expensive than amazon's everyday price for a boxed copy. And Shadowrun seems to be on sale for $1-$3 every weekend at gogamer.
