    Weren't there Daily Deals before? I remember one called EA week. Every day there'd be a discount in a EA game.

    Steam wants to see me on the streets begging for change, it seems.

    Yeah, I could have sworn that they were having "Daily Deals" before too.
    Maybe they weren't calling them that, but they did seem to have changing discounts on games daily.

    Anyway, yay.

    steam has 'daily deals' pretty much every day... last week they had ea games discounted every day, they have deals every weekend.
    Then there's their 'special offers' always scrolling across the homepage.

    Not to mention that fact that nearly every game has at least 10% off anyway.

    They do have a structure. They have midweek sales that go on from Tuesday until Thursday and another game on sale on the weekend from Friday up until Monday. The deal is usually limited to one game only and/or weekend deals.

    Daily deals is different as there is a new sale every day with different games.
