Gift cards have been around for ages and are available for both traditional brick and mortar stores, as well as for online stores. Of course, stores that have an online presence ie a website where you can shop, usually accept all types of gift cards for the store.
Steam digital gift cards
Steam is the largest online store for buying (and selling) games. Just like you get a digital gift card for iTunes, you get one for Steam. Steam gift card can be used to buy games, and to buy other items from Steam Community Marketplace. They make great gifts if someone you know is looking to buy a great / expensive title to be released on or around the New Year.

Buy yourself a Steam gift card
You can’t buy a Steam gift card for yourself. You can add money to your own account but you cannot buy such a gift for yourself. The gift card is just that; chart. It does not offer discounts or anything. You get the face value of the card to use to buy games. There is no limit to the number of gift cards you can buy since they are digital and stocks are unlikely to run out.
Steam gift cards for sale can be found on other websites eg, you can find them on Amazon. They may be true, or they may be false. You can also find intermediary sites that charge you a fee for purchasing a gift card. This tends to happen when you do not have the right instrument to complete the purchase eg credit card but it can transfer money through Paypal account, or something that Steam does not support. The website may be legit but it’s up to you to do your research and make sure you don’t fall for a scam. You end up paying a little more than the face value of the card.
