    You're not giving Steamgifts any sensitive information, only Steam (which is why the site sends you to Steam's login and doesn't capture login information itself). Once you login on Steam, Steam...

    Assuming you buy in relative bulk to combat Paypal fees (or just use Bitcoin), you save roughly $0.30/key by using cash rather than buying from the Steam market. But I agree, you can't understate the...

    The text is poorly phrased, but it does actually give you Zeno Clash and the coupon (assuming Reddit is to be believed). Unfortunately that means you can't redeem the key just for the coupon if you...

    Differentiation was easy in 1.x and CS:S, but the models and the maps (via clutter and fog) in CS:GO make it much more difficult IMO; "_se" maps fix the issue for the most part. I don't think we'll...

    Right now the skins are limited to weapons, so that's not really a concern. Pretty much all of the weapons should be instantly recognizable based on shape and sound.

    Occasionally, some keys will become invalid and Steam will tell you so, but they won't automatically become activated. You might be able to resolve it by going through whoever sold you the key.

    That's not a bad idea in general. I usually use private links to share giveaways across multiple groups, but that should be "good enough" for RPS "private" giveaways.

    That's an odd assertion by their KB that doesn't seem to actually be backed up by the SSA.

    FWIW, the 200 transaction IRS reporting requirement seems more of a CYA on Valve's part. It's unclear whether the IRS would actually count Steam wallet as income. I also doubt anyone from the US...

    Both Batman AA and AC still use GFWL. AA got Steam achievements some time ago (I believe AC always had them, but I'm not 100% sure), but getting them to work seems to be a crap-shoot.
