Steam Coupon Support

This Steam Support article has word that Steam now supports coupon codes, offering details on how coupons work on Valve's online service. Thanks Stephen, who notes the coupons can also be traded through Steam, though the FAQ does not mention this.

Though we rarely talk on Steam, Prez gives me lots of ideas for new things to play whenever I see him pop up on the overlay. Likewise I don't think I've ever seen him play the same thing twice. Wait Orcs Must Die maybe but that's about it.

Yes, his steam list is impressive! And every sale I get bombed by messages telling me "Prez now owns...". And this actually makes me buy more games than any ad by Steam!

Consoles? I owned two: a Pong clone and an Atari 2600. And that's it.

I'm lookin at: "Found 134 Games with a value of $1873.67 USD"

But my Steam profile says I have 189 games...

And according to Mint from Jan 2010: $1008.91

Ah, I see where the value discrepancy comes from. The calculator just counts current price, whereas I'm thinking of money I've spent in total. I've got quite a few games that I bought for 50 bucks on there which now cost 10 bucks. That's quite a loss of value.

Shit, games devaluate quicker than Bentleys!

There are also quite a few pricing errors on there, like counting each episode of Sam & Max as costing $30, when that is the price of a whole season (though I paid only like $10 or 15 for all of it). That right there inflates the value by nearly $500.

Reading this makes me feel so inadequate as a PC gamer. I have to start spending some more cash!

You and me both: Found 37 Games with a value of $507.64 USD.

So how do you get coupons to use on Steam? I haven't seen that mentioned once on their site.

What does having time to play have to do with owning a ton of games???

Apparently nothing, because I have about 20 unplayed games sitting in my Steam library

Cool. Had to create a custom URL, but I have 151 games with a total value of $2403,50.

Which is actually pretty low. I had figured it was at least double that. It also seems to be missing 11 games from my library.

Yeah, it's a little off. I think in the steam client, it says I have like 270 games, yet on the calc, it only lists 150.

Well, couple things to consider:
1. Some of the games you buy full price, currently they are not.
2. Some games you get on sale, currently they are not
3. It is a snapshot in time
4. A lot of games we buy in bundles

This also does not count DLC that I can tell, and your list in Steam does (if I recall correctly).

I have every transaction in PayPal in a special e-mail address since I started Steam. If I get bored, i will go through it and jot it down. Also, you can go into your Steam Account via the client and look at every transaction, cut and paste into excel and add it up.

This is just a fun little tool to give you an idea.

How did you work out the number of missing games - looking through the list or comparing it to the Steam Community figure? Because Steam Community lists my number of games as 450, yet the number is 298 according to SteamCalculator. The Steam Community counts DLC, free games, some games are counted multiple times, etc - it's an inflated number but still interesting for comparison.

Yea, it works for Prez....so......

It cannot work for Prez. Or does it allow more than 9 digit numbers?

Prez must have at least $40000 worth. I've yet to see him play the same game twice.

I'll be curious to see what they do with this. Maybe deals like what GMG does? I'm still surprised steam hasn't tried to put a stop to that yet. Getting DX:HR for $29 and SR3 for $34 (pre-launch) were amazing deals.

Yea no kidding. Well, they have the wallet, they have the sales (weekly, multiple holiday, monthly, random), gifting, pre purchase discounts, and now coupons!

They lead the way, that is for sure. Which is probably why I have so many damn games with them.

http://www.steamcalculator.com/index.php

Current library shows: (give or take 20%) $2663
Average account is $840!!!!

That is pretty amazing.

Still fun though.

Using my 17 digit id number didn't work for me, once I went and made a custom url, that worked fine.

Found 113 Games with a value of

Its amazing how that adds up on you!

Tell me about it...

Found 504 Games with a value of
$6991.43 USD

Granted, I snagged the overwhelming majority of these on good sales, but still...

Worked for me, noted it does not know about DLC unless listed separately, though it appears to ignore some of those that are e.g. DXHR Missing Link. Possible it includes the latter in totals, I can't check as my prices aren't $USD.

Actually I see it's picked up Civ IV: Warlords, Civ IV: BtS but not Civ IV, nor Civ V.

Doesn't work for me. And yes, I'm using my correct Steam ID. I can click on it, and my steam page comes up. Strange.
