Before You Buy That Game On Steam Check Kinguin First For a Discount

If I was to give a label to the best feature on Steam it would ultimately be the ability to buy and download your games right from home.  The day’s of going to Gamestop or another B&M store are over once I converted from Xbox Live.  Steam’s library is vast, hosting thousands of games, but what some might not realize is you can grab key’s, legally, from a multitude of other sites and redeem them on the Steam client.  Here is where Kinguin comes in.

Kinguin allows you to search for any games that are currently available, but instead of just linking you directly to the Steam store it will search across a ton of CD key sites and find the cheapest key for you.  For example if you wanted to buy Bioshock Infinite the game is retailing for $29.99 currently on the Steam store.  Using Kinguin you can grab a key at its cheapest for $12.14.  When you get that key you activate it on Steam and are set.  With that kind of saving’s you can really extend your game purchases.  Hit the link below to check out Kinguin and make sure to check it each and every time you are looking to purchase a game.

    I highly advice against using Kinguin. They partner with (or are controlled by) RhinoKeys. Which has been flagged as a potential fraudulent site.

      I have used it plenty of times. As always when buying online protect yourself. Use a credit card or PayPal. Make sure the checkout is secure (https) and you will be fine

        Again, I highly advise against these types of sites. Just so we are all clear here.

    Both of you gents make good points. Rich, I agree it is important to look deeper than the surface when purchasing from any outside site. Bryan, I agree that we should always use secure forms of payment. In the end, as long as Steam is not being shorted in the deals then all is ok. If Steam is being screwed in the deal I would personally just buy directly from Steam.

    As a Steam community here I think we all have the best for Steam in mind, even if it costs us an extra dollar or two.

    Thanks for the post and thanks for the concern and warning. Both of you make this site an amazing place to be.
