Fortunately, yet another one of the platform's massive discount periods has arrived, in the form of the Lunar New Year sale. You'll get tokens as you buy games - 100 tokens per $1 - that can be redeemed at a "rewards booth" for additional $5 discount coupons, as well as new profile page styles, account badges, and other such digital baubles. "Additional tokens can be rewarded by purchasing games during the sale". You'll receive 127 tokens per £1 you spend (139 tokens per £1 for gifts).


You can redeem your tokens at the Rewards Booth. There are only a dozen emotes, so spending just $12 is enough to get the whole set. The Steam Lunar New Year Sale 2019 end date and time is February 11, 2018 at 11:30pm IST.
