The ‘Lunar New Year Sale‘ itself is enough of a gift by ‘Steam,’ but they’ve got another gift up their sleeve! Users were shocked worldwide when ‘Steam‘ announced free and redeemable red packets that reward the user with an arbitrary amount of coins when opened. With tokens, one can purchase permanent wallpapers, badges, emotes, and even discounts off their next purchase!
How Do I Claim My Red Packet?
Upon opening your ‘Steam‘ application, simply navigate to the home page. Upon loading, you should see a banner with the words ‘Lunar New Year Sale‘ marked on it. Simply click on the “Redeem Now” button. This will take you to a separate page where ‘Steam‘ explains everything you need to know about this once-in-a-lifetime event! So in short…
- Log into your ‘Steam‘ account in the ‘Steam‘ application or web page.
- Navigate to ‘Steam‘s’ “Store Homepage” by clicking on the “Store” section of the web application / desktop application.
- Simply click on the “Redeem Now” located below the red packet to claim your free and redeemable tokens.
Upon receiving your tokens, you’ll be taken to yet another page with a list of redeemable rewards should you choose to spend your tokens now. You’ll be able to claim exclusive ‘Lunar New Year Steam 2019‘ exclusive rewards such as permanent emoticons, wallpapers, exclusive badges and even discounts off your next reward! Listed below are the rewards that are redeemable via “Lunar New Year Tokens.”
We want to celebrate the new year by giving back. Your tokens can be redeemed for a variety of different items including discounts, special profiles, badges and more!

How Do I Get More?
In order to receive more tokens, ‘Steam‘ allows you to purchase games during the duration of the event which will award you with a set amount of tokens. For instance, you could spend $5 to receive 5000 tokens. This rate, of course, could have changed during the duration of the event without prior noticed to ‘Steam‘ users.
Do These Tokens Expire?
Unfortunately for us, ‘Steam‘ does not allow us to save these tokens and use them later. At the end of February 13, ‘Steam‘ will erase all records of the token and every last one that users may not have claimed yet.
