Meta Quest 2 (128GB)

The best Meta Quest 2 (128GB) Black Friday & Cyber Monday 2022 sale so far is $250 bundled with $50 store credit for Quest games.

That’s a $100 (33%) discount over what you’d normally pay ($50 off the headset and $50 worth of games).

If you’d rather get that $50 of store credit elsewhere, you can find the same deal with a $50 gift card to the respective retailer at Target and Newegg.

Or if you’re planning to buy an upgraded headstrap (which we suggest you do!), you can get Quest 2 (128GB) for $250 from Best Buy along with a free Elite Strap (normally $60).

The best Meta Quest 2 (256GB) Black Friday & Cyber Monday 2022 sale so far is $300 bundled with $50 store credit for Quest games (find the option for the 256GB model when you hit ‘Add to Cart’).

That’s a $100 (29%) discount over what you’d normally pay ($50 off the headset and $50 worth of games).

If you’d rather get that $50 of store credit elsewhere, you can find the same deal with a $50 gift card to the respective retailer at Target and Newegg.

Or if you’re planning to buy an upgraded headstrap (which we suggest you do!), you can get Quest 2 (256GB) for $350 from Best Buy along with a free Elite Strap (normally $60).

Without being plugged into a computer, Quest 2 can only play games from the Meta Quest library. If you plug the headset into a computer, you’ll have access to everything in the Oculus PC and SteamVR libraries as well. That means that Quest 2 is compatible with the vast majority of top VR content out there, as long as you’ve got a powerful gaming PC to plug the headset into.
