Valve's annual Steam Summer Sale has arrived, and the company is capitalizing on the heavy traffic by incorporating its recently released Steam Trading Cards feature into many of its bargains.

Steam users can earn Summer Getaway cards through voting in the Community's Choice polls, crafting game badges, and through purchases. Card drops are unlocked with roughly each $10 U.S. spent, and with 10 cards required to craft the Summer Getaway Badge... well, you can do the math.

It's a respectably deep system, for anyone wishing to invest themselves into Steam's trading card metagame in order to reap the benefits. As before, a number of titles both indie and from major publishers are participating. You can learn more here.
