Don't forget to set aside a few dollars for food and other bills
Word to the wise -- don't go quitting that second job you got to pay for all the games you bought during Steam's Autumn Sale, you're going to need it to fund another round of discounts. The 2013 Steam Holiday Sale is now on and runs through the remainder of the holiday shopping season, all the way up until January 3, 2014. As always, big savings are to be had on popular titles, such as 50 percent off Batman: Arkham Origins ($24.99) and 75 percent off Bioshock Infinite ($9.99).
The oft-talked about The Stanley Parable is marked down 40 percent to $8.99, and if you can't get enough zombie mayhem, Dead Island Game of the Year Edition is selling for $5, or 75 percent off its normal price.
Several other titles are on sale, with new deals taking their place every 24 hours. In addition, Steam refreshes its batch of Flash Sale games every 8 hours. At present, you can score Counter Strike: Global Offensive for $3.74 (75 percent off), Divekick for $2.49 (75 percent off), and The Typing of the Dead: Overkill for $9.99 (50 percent off).
On top of it all, participating in the 2013 Steam Holiday Sale will earn you exclusive Holiday Sale Trading Cards. Collect all 10 and you'll receive a Holiday Sale badge and earn a variety of limited edition rewards, Steam says.
