The Steam Summer Sale 2016 is finally here and with this year’s deals, gamers are in for some pretty indulgent indoor fun. However, if you were caught unprepared by the sale’s arrival and has zero credit, no need to fret! We have rounded up the best offers and discounts on credit for you.

Best deals from best Buy

Based on a few sources, it appears that Best Buy lives up to its name in having the best gaming currency card offer for gamers. GameSpot reports that if you buy any gaming currency card, you get a second card at 20 percent off. The site details that the offer is pretty versatile in that it applies to all gaming currency cards.

However, the offer only lasts until Saturday so you better start moving now before the deal is off.

VG247 also emphasizes that the offer is only valid for physical cards.

Meanwhile, if you need reassurance on what game cards the promotion is available, Siliconera offers a detailed list. The website says that the deal works on more than 50 prepaid game cards such as the Steam Wallet Card, Xbox Gift Card, PlayStation Network Card, and Nintendo eShop Card, among others.

Siliconera also has a special mention on the Blizzard Battle.net $20 card. The site offers the following tip:

“Speaking of the Blizzard Battle.net $20 card, you can potentially get 10% off Overwatch on the PC by picking up two $20 cards at Best Buy for $36, then apply the credit towards your Battle.net account to pick up a copy of Overwatch for a total of $36 (provided of course Battle.net doesn’t charge sales tax in your state).”
