If you have a few dollars, pounds, rupee or euro spare on an old prepaid bank card Laying around on your computer desk. Or you just don’t like being told you can only spend your money in increments of $5. You can bypass Steams $5 increments policy, using a couple of methods. One simple, one not so simple, both work just as well, so why not snag yourself that cheap game?!
Add Any Random Amount of Money to Your Steam Account Using the 'Enhanced Steam' Extension.
The simplest method available to add a random amount of money to your Steam account is by using the Enhanced Steam browser extension, which is available for Chrome and Firefox. With support coming for Microsoft Edge in the near future. Enhanced Steam also has a few other handy little features as well:
Enhanced Steam Features.
- Highlights games you already own.
- Highlights games on your wishlist.
- Correctly calculates bundle discounts based on games you already own.
- Shows you how much money you've spent on Steam for the lifetime of your account (probably scary to look at)
- Highlights DLC you own on a game page.
- Fixes No Image Available game icons on your wishlist for games and DLC.
Note: Unfortunately, these features don’t transcend to the Steam app or program, they would be quite useful there as well
Once you have installed the extension go to Steam’s "Add Funds page, which is found by going to the drop-down arrow in the top right-hand corner next to your account name. Inside the arrow go to Account details. A new box will appear beneath the $5 option. Enter any amount (remember you cannot go below the $5 base) and click Add Funds, now you can check out as normal.
NOTE: Something to watch out for though when entering your values is the decimal place can sometimes do strange things, for example, 1.96 € can jump to 196€
