This year's Black Friday deals are officially over in the US and the UK, but that doesn't mean the deals are completely gone - plenty of excellent Oculus Quest 2 deals are still live following this year's Cyber Monday deals. This Black Friday, the VR headset was down to its best-ever price in the UK and US, so if you've been looking to pick up the headset this is your best chance.

If the Oculus Quest 2 isn't quite what you're after, we'd highly recommend its successor, the Meta Quest 3 (which we gave five stars in our Meta Quest 3 review). While the best deal to be found right now doesn't include a discount, you will get a free copy of Asgard's Wrath 2 with your purchase (though the game doesn't launch until December 15).

Want to know more about Meta's headsets? You can read through our Oculus Quest 2 review to get a feel for the headsets well as our Meta Quest 3 review to see if the new best VR headset from Meta is a better pick for you.

Meta's Oculus Quest 2 was, until recently, our favorite VR headset, and this Cyber Monday you can get it for its lowest-ever price of just $249. You'll then be able to jump into an incredible selection of VR games and apps available on the Quest platform and finally see how much fun VR can be.

If you want to spend a little more this Cyber Monday you could pick up the Oculus Quest 2 (256GB) model which is $50 off, and at its best price ever. If you plan to use your headset plenty then the extra storage might be worthwhile, though most people will be more than fine with the cheaper 128GB model.

The Meta Quest 3 isn’t currently discounted, and likely won't be for Cyber Monday as it's so new, but you can get a free digital copy of Asgard's Wrath 2 when it launches later this year.
If you’d rather not shop at Amazon the same offer is available from <a href="https://goto.walmart.com/c/1943169/565706/9383?subId1=hawk-custom-tracking&sharedId=hawk&u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.walmart.com%2Fip%2FMeta-Quest-3-128GB-Breakthrough-Mixed-Reality-Powerful-Performance-Asgard-s-Wrath-2-Bundle%2F2212742363" data-link-merchant="walmart.com"" data-link-merchant="Amazon US"" target="_blank">Walmart, <a href="https://shop-links.co/link?publisher_slug=future&exclusive=1&u1=hawk-custom-tracking&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.bestbuy.com%2Fsite%2Fmeta-quest-3-breakthrough-mixed-reality-128gb-white%2F6549064.p&article_name=hawk-article-name&article_url=hawk-article-url" data-link-merchant="bestbuy.com"" data-link-merchant="walmart.com"" data-link-merchant="Amazon US"" target="_blank">Best Buy, and <a href="https://goto.target.com/c/221109/81938/2092?subId1=hawk-custom-tracking&sharedId=hawk&u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.target.com%2Fp%2Fmeta-quest-3-mixed-reality-headset-asgard-39-s-wrath-2-bundle-128gb%2F-%2FA-89426847" data-link-merchant="target.com"" data-link-merchant="bestbuy.com"" data-link-merchant="walmart.com"" data-link-merchant="Amazon US"" target="_blank">Target as well as others. 

Syntech Link Cable (16ft / 5m): $25.99  $19.99 at Amazon

Syntech Link Cable (16ft / 5m): <a href="https://target.georiot.com/Proxy.ashx?tsid=8428&GR_URL=https%3A%2F%2Famazon.com%2FSyntech-Compatible-Transfer-Charging-Headset%2Fdp%2FB098399X91%3Ftag%3Dhawk-future-20%26ascsubtag%3Dhawk-custom-tracking-20" data-link-merchant="Amazon US"" target="_blank">was $25.99 now $19.99 at Amazon
The beauty of the Oculus Quest 2 and Meta Quest 3 is that they are standalone headsets – meaning you don’t need a console or PC to access VR software. You can still use it for PC VR though, you’ll just need a special Link Cable like this one from Syntech and a VR-capable computer. We have seen this cable $3 less on Black Friday, but this is still a good price for it.

KIWI Comfort Battery Head Strap: $99.99 $79.99 at Amazon

KIWI Comfort Battery Head Strap: <a href="https://target.georiot.com/Proxy.ashx?tsid=8428&GR_URL=https%3A%2F%2Famazon.com%2FKIWI-design-Strap-Accessories-Battery%2Fdp%2FB09XF69CR9%2Fref%3Dsr_1_1_sspa%3Ftag%3Dhawk-future-20%26ascsubtag%3Dhawk-custom-tracking-20" data-link-merchant="Amazon US"" target="_blank">was $99.99 now $79.99 at Amazon
The Kiwi Strap is a popular option amongst VR fans, and it's currently $20 off (but we have seen it sell for $30 less recently). This strap will not only improve the comfort and fit of your Quest 2, but with the included battery pack your VR headset should last longer on a single charge too.

This deal isn't quite as incredible as it was over Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but you can still save £50 on Meta's VR headset. You just won't get an Amazon gift card, but this still isn't a bad deal.

Meta Quest 2 and £50 gift card: £349.99£249.99 at Argos

Meta Quest 2 and £50 gift card: <a href="https://www.anrdoezrs.net/click-6361382-15618761?sid=hawk-custom-tracking&url=https://www.argos.co.uk/product/9461987" data-link-merchant="argos.co.uk"">was £349.99 now £249.99 at Argos
If you like to shop at Argos you can get a great deal on a Quest 2 that saves you £50 on the headset and gets you a £50 gift card to spend on whatever you like. This is effectively a £100 saving, so not something to be sniffed at.

Meta Quest 2 (256GB), Elite Strap and case: £429.99£299 at Currys

Meta Quest 2 (256GB), Elite Strap and case: <a href="https://www.awin1.com/awclick.php?awinmid=22479&awinaffid=103504&clickref=hawk-custom-tracking&p=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.currys.co.uk%2Fproducts%2Fmeta-quest-2-vr-gaming-headset-and-elite-strap-bundle-256-gb-10221366.html" data-link-merchant="currys.co.uk"">was £429.99 now £299 at Currys
For £50 more, you can double your Quest 2 headset storage and get the 256GB version – and you’ll still get the Elite Strap and carry case for free. The extra space won’t be necessary for everyone, but if you plan to use your new VR headset a lot then you might find it helpful.

The Meta Quest 3 only just launched so it was extremely unlikely it would see much of a discount for Cyber Monday. There is still a deal on though; if you order the headset before January 27, 2024, and activate it before February 9, 2024, you’ll get Asgard’s Wrath 2 for free when the game releases.

When did the best Black Friday Oculus Quest 2 deals start in 2023?

Black Friday officially took place on November 24, but many retailers began their sales a lot sooner with ‘proper’ Black Friday sales arriving a few weeks ago. Now, all the deals are in full swing. 

Where are the best Oculus Quest 2 Black Friday deals?

The best Oculus Quest 2 deals can be found here of course; all weekend, we’ll let you know about the deals we think are great and some Quest 2 deals you might be best to avoid. If you want to do your own deal hunting, here are the sites we’d recommend.

What Black Friday Oculus Quest 2 deals are we seeing in 2023?

Last year for Black Friday, Meta offered a pretty good bundle deal that not only shaved money off the Quest 2 headset but gave you a fantastic VR game for free in Resident Evil 4 VR. This year we’re seeing something similar with Asgard's Wrath, though we’re not super sure what to expect across the weekend because the Quest 2 is in a very different place than it was in 2022.

Firstly the VR headset got a major price drop down to $299.99 / £299.99 for the 128GB version and $349.99 / £349.99 for the 256GB model earlier this year. This is the price it was before a major price hike in August 2022 and we’re not sure Meta will go much lower on it, because the headset is apparently already a loss leader.

Secondly, Meta now has the new Meta Quest 3. It’s only just launched and while new tech typically makes older generations go down in price Meta might not want to distract us from its shiny new gadget as we head into the all-important holiday season by offering an amazing Quest 2 deal. 

So at best we expect the Quest 2 is also bundled with an accessory like the Elite Strap in some places, but won’t have a proper discount.
