The best way to get rid of spare change is self-checkouts in grocery stores, Walmart, Target, etc. when you do some shopping.

 

Just dump the change into the coin insert slot and let the machine do the rest of the work... kind of like your moms.

I just take my spare change to the bank.  They give out cash money that I can spend anywhere and they don't charge a fee.

Picked up:

 

Just Cause 3 (for the multiplayer mod, enjoyed JC2 MP)

Civil War 2: The Bloody Road South DLC

Universe Sandbox 2 (enjoyed the first one)

Ultimate General: Civil War

No Man's Sky (Want to play with mods)

Stellaris (recommendation)

 

Guessing that will be it for me as I try not to spend much on PC games anymore, only time I buy is during the Summer and Winter sale.

Blows my mind how games like Watch Dogs 2 can be 85% off during a random one-off sale, but on a lesser discount during the biggest sale of the year. I almost don't want to buy it out of spite now. That'll show them. 

It makes perfect sense, honestly.

 

The big seasonal event sales generate huge buzz in games media and social media. They get larger crowds, a majority of which probably don't track Steam or digital PC game deals much or at all on any regular basis. For them the winter/spring/summer/fall sales are an opportunity to spend their hard earned cash on some good games that have at least modest discounts.

 

On the other hand, it's likely for games to receive their biggest discounts during random daily/weekly/weekend deals because in between the big events there isn't going to be as much traffic on Steam or other store fronts. A deep sale is the best way to advertise a product (and possibly devalue it).

 

It's the same thing with outlet malls, for example. People go to them during Memorial Day, Black Friday, etc. hoping to grab the best deals on clothes, kitchenware, etc. 25% off outlet prices seems like a good enough deal. However, the best deals are during the slowest times - random weekends in September or March, for example. I've done this many times and have found great deals, especially clearance plus additional 30-50% off that makes the overall discount >75%, on things I needed.

 

tl;dr - bigger crowds and more advertising = less incentive to offer higher discounts

smaller crowds and slower sales periods = more incentive to offer higher discounts to get people "in the door"

 

(Apologies if I seem pedantic)

Stop being logical. I just want to complain.

The mechanical keyboard I'm using (Corsair STRAFE RGB MX Silent) is very quiet. It's decent enough to use, but the build quality is absolute shit. The keycaps started wearing out on me 2-3 months in, and now my WASD keys look like crap after about a year of owning it. Expected more from Corsair, but it's probably one of the best mech keyboards if you want something that doesn't make much noise.

 

Another Strafe RGB Silent owner here. Had it for over a year now and fortunately I haven't experienced any kind of wear and tear on the keycaps. Were you using the textured WASD ones that they include in the box? I've never touched those personally and the standard caps have held up fine after a lot of use. I'd consider shooting Corsair an e-mail about the issue; they'll probably send you a full set of keycaps at no cost.

 

And I agree on the silence. Very quiet, comfortable to use. Never thought I'd give a damn about RGB lighting but now I don't think I could live without it.
