Actually, they are. Gamersgate, Gamefly, Greenmangaming, GoodOldGames etc. have all sorts of sales (weekend sales, midweek sales, coupon rebates, themed sales etc.). You can save some serious m00la. True, in some cases (GMG, GF) you need their client, but it isn't that much of a hassle if you're already familiar with Steam.
