I noticed I had a bunch of Steam trading cards, which by themselves are completely useless. Some time ago I put a few on the market and made a whopping $0.22, so I thought, why not selling ALL of them? Maybe it'll add up enough to get me a new game. After all they're completely useless otherwise.

Wait, what? Maybe do it from the market page.

It's somewhat unfair to blame the Steam system for this, instead you should be blaming criminals who buy stuff with stolen credit cards, and perhaps the credit card system in general for being so exploitable.

The 30 day delay was added because scammers were using stolen credit cards to buy Steam games, get the trading cards, and sell them off on the marketplace before the transaction is reported as fraudulent and they get a chargeback on the card.

Just hold onto your trading cards until you end up buying something, and then offload them all after that.

Try getting those free Sega games, maybe it'll count as a purchase?

It says right there, only Steam credit and actual purchases. AKA only money being spent by me. While the 30-day minimum makes sense, I don't quite understand the one-year limit.

It's pretty curious though that the entirety of Steam games I got in over a year were gifts.

If you can stand to have it in your library, seems you could buy one of those complete trash games that are usually on sale for considerably less than a dollar.

I'd rather spend money on something I want.

Well, sure, if you have money to spend.
