Seems like literally every time I buy a new game from steam it goes on sale less than 3 days later. I waited for it to go on sale and I haven't see it when it has, if it has. I sold a few things on Ebay and decided to get BF:BC2. I just bought it 2 days ago and wham, its down 33%. I think steam should have a policy to refund 50% of the "savings" if you buy a game and less than 3 days later it goes on sale.
What do you guys think?

Before you trolls start flaming, I'm just bored and wanted to vent.

Rule of thumb for this summer sale, and other similar sales they've had, is to wait for the daily sales to be finished, then pick up any of the general sale games at the end.

The thing is, they give the deals as an incentive to always watch for their deals. If they gave discounts after the fact, you only have to check every 3 days.
