Steam Holiday sale brings new ways to earn prizes

Annual sale gives users a chance to collect and trade

Posted on
The Steam Holiday Sale is on now through Sunday, January 1, 2012. In addition to the expected savings throughout the store, the 2011 sale features two special promotions that allow users to win easier than before.

The Great Gift Pile challenges gamers to complete up to six objectives each day. Completion of each objective grants the chance to win a free game or discount coupons for select games available on Steam. If you don't win, you'll be given a piece of coal.

Coal is the ticket to enter the Epic Holiday Giveaway. It's called Epic because the top prize is an account with every game on Steam. The more coal you have, the better your chance of winning.

Alternatively, players can just use up their coal (7 pieces) into a gift from the Great Gift Pile. And if that's not enough, users can trade anything in their inventory with others - from Portal 2 and TF2 items to coal and unredeemed gifts.

Many users are currently experiencing a lot of errors with the site and the Steam client due to the increased traffic, but these issues should be hopefully ironed out within a few hours.
