Valve has kicked off the Steam Winter Sale, with daily deals through January 4. While you won’t find flash deals or community votes, you can earn three trading cards every day just by browsing your discovery queue.

In order to earn your cards, just go through your discovery queue three times (it will have different games each time). You need to be level five to earn them, but if you hit that during the sale, you'll be granted your cards retroactively.

Included in the sale are recent titles like Telltale’s Game of Thrones, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, and Sword Coast Legends. This year also marks the introduction of the first Steam sale comic, called Gingerbread Jake In: North Pole Noir.”

A new page of the comic will be made available each day. You can check out all of the deals on Steam.
