Steam – How to Get Free / Cheap Steam Games

Below you will see the many sites that offer Steam games at discounted prices or for free. I will list every site that I personally know of, there will be some people might not agree with. But in fairness, I will list them all to the best of my knowledge.

  • A free game in the store occasionally.
  • $12 Monthly Subscription that includes:
  • $100+ in games a month.

  • $2 wallet credit for purchasing the 3rd tier of a bundle.
  • 60+ DRM free games to download and play(games do not link up with steam).
  • Early Unlock feature that lets you purchase the next months subscription early to play the games offered, other games unlock at the beginning of the month.


  • 24-hour sales on various games.

  • Otakumaker has its own monthly bundle on its main site, but the main focus of this site is the 2 child sites shown under the Bundles/Deals tab on the site.
