Win a Free Steam Deck While Watching Video Games Win Awards

Do you like video games? Do you like watching video game creators win awards? Do you like free stuff? Then you’ll love Valve’s new giveaway: Watch this year’s Game Awards through SteamTV, and you’ll have the chance to win a new 512GB Steam Deck, which typically retails for $649. The video game developers may get the awards, but we’ll be the real winners of the night.

The rules are relatively simple. In order to qualify, you need to live in the U.S., Canada, UK, or EU, and have made a purchase on your Steam account between Nov. 14, 2021 and Nov. 14, 2022. That means, if you bought a game in roughly the past year, you’re good. But you also can’t just buy something on Steam right now and hope to compete: If your last purchase was after Nov. 14, it won’t count. With those qualifications met, you can register for the giveaway on the official site here.

Interestingly, you can enter the giveaway by mail. Grab a four-inch by six-inch note card and print your name, address, city, state, country, postal code, email address, Steam account name, phone number, and the name and date of the giveaway (“The Game Awards 2022 Giveaway”). Mail the note to: Valve Corporation, P.O. Box 1688, Bellevue, WA 98009-1688. As long as the note is postmarked by the eighth, and received by the 19th, you’ll qualify, which would seem to imply Valve has some extra Steam Decks available after the Game Awards are over.

Once entered, all you need to do is watch the Dec. 8 Game Awards on Steam’s website or SteamTV while signed into the Steam account you registered with. The stream will start at 7:30 p.m. ET (4:30 p.m. PT). Valve will draw one winner every minute from the pool of registered users watching the show, and since the awards are slated to run three hours, they look to be giving away roughly 180 units. Your chances depend on how many registered Steam accounts decided to tune in throughout the night. Let’s hope for a low turnout.

If you win, your account name will be announced during the stream, but it’s OK if you miss it. Valve will send you an email confirming your win, and may request a shipping address for the prize if you don’t have one on file already. Don’t miss this request, because if Valve doesn’t have an address from you by Dec. 16, you’ll forfeit the prize.

Even if you don’t win, all registrants will walk away with an animated Steam Pal animated sticker. Just as good, right?
