Is there any way to subscribe to receive emails about Steam games offered at 50% or higher discount?

write a program that checks the website periodically and sends you an email when it founds new games at 50% if you need advice on how to write such program go to =) – Luiscencio Jan 14 '11 at 23:49
@Luiscencio I already write programs to do that sort of stuff. Lately I have been doing nothing more than scratching my own itches like that, for weeks on end. I probably have more than 20 itch-scratching proggies I made for myself. This madness has got to stop, I have to write code for money too inbetween things like this one! (Oh yeah, and play those games I buy :D) – romkyns Jan 15 '11 at 0:34

i think this site could help.

Apparently you can register and if some games go on sale you get notified by e-mail. ;)

Have fun.

Whoa, looks like a catch-all thread for discussing pretty much everything :) Can I subscribe to posts by a specific user? – romkyns Jan 15 '11 at 0:36
Unfortunately not, it's a bit spamming I know, but you are sure to be updated daily on all sales and price reductions. – Drake Jan 15 '11 at 13:17

I follow @steamydeals on Twitter. It's inofficial, but it does a good job of capturing all the offers and pricedrops, one per tweet, including the new price and the reduction, and including a link to the store page.

That's all offers and pricedrops, though, not just those with 50%+.

There are (3rdparty) tools for getting new tweets by mail, but I don't know much about them.
