The Epic Game Store does not yet support exchanging money for goods and/or services.

(I regret nothing)

The Epic store is giving away Batman Arkham Collection (including Arkham Asylum, Arkham City, and Arkham Knight) and the Lego Batman trilogy, until September 26.  Those games are all 4+ years old but that's still a big giveaway.  On the 26th they will be giving away Metro 2033 Redux (a remaster of the original Metro 2033) and a game called Everything.

Humble Bundle is offering 25% off Borderlands 3, the first discount I've seen on this game. It seems soon after release, but we're going into heavy-sale season so maybe that's not surprising.

The Humble store's discount on Borderlands 3 is now 33% (up from 25% earlier), so that's available for $40.  Also 25% off The Outer Worlds, making it $45.

Steam is advertising their "Autumn Sale" now through Dec 3 and notes that their award nominations are open if you want to vote for a game you liked this year. I don't know if such awards actually impact anything but I expect that Steam will likely feature winners, which probably leads to more publicity+sales.

Not sure if this qualifies as "discount" but the pre-purchase bundles for the next Hearthstone expansion are up. 60 packs for $50, 100 for $80. Both bundles include a unique card back and Deathwing Warrior hero portrait. The 100 also gets you a random gold legendary from the new set.

gog.com has started its winter sale, which includes a giveaway of Wasteland 2 (a game about which I know nothing; just reporting what I read).

Steam's winter sale has started.

The Epic store is offering a $10 off coupon thing.  You have to spend at least $15 to use it, and you get a new $10 coupon with each purchase.  They also have a free game each day from today until Jan 1.  Today's is Into the Breach, a turn-based game that people used to talk about a bunch.  There doesn't appear to be a list of what's coming.

Gog.com continues its ongoing giveaways. It looks like a new title is rotated in every 36-48 hours.

Epic is finishing out their daily giveaways with games I haven't heard of (Hello Neighbor today, one of the Yooka-Laylee games tomorrow), so I took a look at what can be bought cheap using the regenerating $10 coupon.  I picked up The Division 2 for $5, and am considering Watch Dogs 2 at the same price.  This post has a list of $15 games which can be bought for $5, but the others don't look interesting to me.

[ETA: apparently Yooka-Laylee is a spiritual successor to Banjo Kazooie, one of my favorite N64 games from back in the day.  So that will be a pretty cool giveaway tomorrow.]

"The Bridge" is free on the Epic Store at the moment.  (Or it's on sale for $1.50 on Steam.)  It's an Escher-themed puzzle game with some very positive reviews.

Steam is having a lunar new year sale; as part of this, most Witcher games are cheap (Witcher 3 GOTY for $15, for instance).  The same prices for Witcher games also appear to be available on gog.com.

[I mis-posted this in the "finished playing" thread earlier, and am reposting it here]
