    Ok, just found out yesterday that Steam is doing something different this time. I have been trying to buy CS:GO for the shop since the sale started, but my gift button was grayed out. Asked Aaddron to try it on another game in case it was just me when he found the following.

    Valve Won't Let You Buy and Gift Counter-Strike: Global Offensive in the Steam Sale, Here's Why

    That said, we can not gift nor even buy it at all during the sale. Anybody who wants to complain to Steam about this can be my guest since the idea behind it is false. Several active CS:GO players have came from GameOgre and the sale was a great way to add it to the shop.

    To anybody who was promised the game and is still active, they will receive the game after the sale is over. Another option would be buying Cobalt instead since I can and already have gifted that game.

    As far as the shop goes, the game will still be available sale or not to those who have earned it. New members or people who have been inactive for a long period of time will have to be active to be considered for it.

    Hmmm, still not allowing it yet. May need to contact support or try something else.

    Although we did buy a Steam card and was waiting on that sale for months, that something else may be G2A :). May even sell some there.

    Does anybody know how to contact Steam support if not about a refund? Figured I could try that before going to G2A.

    Probably have to find the closest issue here - Steam Support or maybe try here Ask a Question - Steam Support (which is the same thing but direct link to "ask a question")

    I contacted them and received a response. Looks like G2A will probably be the only solution after all. They did say I could send feedback to an email though lol.

    Found a solution (actually two) for this so CS:GO is still buyable to those that earn it:).
