How to Check Your Steam Purchase History

“When did I buy that game?”

Whether you’re just curious or trying to find recent purchases for a refund, Steam has a very simple way to check when you purchased a game (and how much it cost).

Check Steam Purchase History Steps

Step 1 – Login to your account and wait for the main screen to pop up.

Once there, click on your profile name in the top right corner and a small drop-down box will open below it as per the screenshot. Click “Account details”.

Steam Purchase History 1

This will take you to your main account details page.

From here simply click “View purchase history”.

And that’s it! You should then see a list of your entire purchase history since the account started.

This will show you when you got a game, how much it was and any refund details if applicable (also covers Steam wallet purchase history).

Can’t view Steam purchase history?

You should be able to see every game attributed to your account no matter how old on this menu.

If that’s not the case and you need to know, your best bet is to contact Steam support.

See total amount spent on Steam

If you want to depress yourself by knowing how much money you’ve spent in total on Steam, they added a feature for this a little while ago.

Just go to this link and log in – don’t say we didn’t warn you!
