Amazon actually has a BioShock bundle (1+2) for $4.99.

I know the link is useless to you now, but yea, I find Steam sales haven't been too great. Especially compared to other sites like GreenManGaming and Amazon.

I've gotten Sleeping Dogs for $13.60 from GMG, Prototype 1+2 for $7.49 from Amazon, LEGO Batman 1 + Batman 2 + Harry Potter 1-4 + Harry Potter 5-7 for $18.98 from Amazon.

And all those games activated on Steam.
I would've preferred you not tell me that; I could still be reveling in a sense of shopping prowess

There should be information about the Steam Mega Sales in front.

Sale times: (Tell me if I'm missing any, and specific months are appreciated.)
Spring Sale
Summer Sale
Thanksgiving/Autumn Sale
Christmas Sale

For approximately a week, Steam puts the majority of its content on sale. Every day for the duration of the sale, there are "flash sales", as Steam calls them, where a select few games become even cheaper than their sale prices for a day or two(there are counters next to the games to show when their flash sales end). I advise you to only buy games on the last day of these sales just in case a game you're looking for goes on a flash sale later.
