Although the previously announced Steam Spring Sale brings discounts to various video games, the biggest discount isn’t for a video game. Instead, the biggest sale goes to the highly demanded Steam Deck.
Happy Birthday Steam Deck! In celebration of a successful first year (of many more to come!) Steam Deck is 10% off from now until the end of the Steam Spring Sale on March 23 at 10am Pacific. https://t.co/RfIsomkC5h pic.twitter.com/Gy4e9pENvg

This ongoing sale is a great time to get one or two or ten games you have been eyeing. People can save so much money buying games at a discount, with some going up to 85% off. However, no matter how high those sales go, you won’t get the biggest discount from games.
The highest discount you can get in the Steam Spring Sale comes instead from a piece of hardware that has high demand right now: the Steam Deck. To celebrate its first birthday, the Steam Deck will be getting a 10% discount. This discount lasts for the duration of the sale, which ends on March 23, 20023, at 10:00 AM PDT. Now you may be wondering: How can this be the biggest discount when it’s only 10% off? Well, believe it or not, players can actually save up to $64.90 because of this discount. Below is the price list for all three versions of the Steam Deck:
- 64GB eMMC (
$399$359.10, Save $39.9)
- Includes a carrying case
- 256GB NVMe SSD (
$529$476.10, Save $52.9)
- Faster storage
- Includes a carrying case and an exclusive Steam Community profile bundle
- 512GB NVMe SSD (
$649$584.10, Save $64.9)
- Faster storage
- Premium anti-glare etched glass
- Includes the following:
- Exclusive carrying case
- Exclusive Steam Community profile bundle
- Exclusive virtual keyboard theme
The amount of money you can save from buying a Steam Deck during the sale is enough to buy a full-priced AAA game. If that’s not big savings, then we don’t know what is. However, as mentioned above, this is not a permanent discount. As mentioned above, players can take advantage of this reduced price until March 23, 20023, at 10:00 AM PDT. That is less than a day from now. Players who intend to take advantage of this sale should buy one now before the Spring Sale ends. Once that date and time pass, players will have to pay the full price to get their own.
The Steam Deck is one of the most sought-after pieces of gaming hardware right now, as it allows players to play PC games on the go. Some new and upcoming games, such as WWE 2k23, Hogwarts Legacy, and many others are already very much playable on it. If you do decide to get a Steam Deck during the sale, why not grab a copy of the above games as well? You saved quite a sum of money anyway.
