The best Oculus Quest 2 deal of the year is still available, but your time is running out

Black Friday is here, and Amazon's incredible Oculus Quest 2 deal is the Black Friday deal you need if you're after a cheap VR headset. In the US you'll get $50 off the 128GB model and $50 credit for free to spend on anything at Amazon. If this deal interests you you'll want to act fast though.

This deal was available about a week ago but sold out quickly (and appears to be sold out again in the UK). I was hopeful it would return on Black Friday, and thankfully it has. So you can now get Meta's Oculus Quest 2 with $50 credit for $249 at Amazon US with code META50. 

In the UK your best option is now at Very. You'll get £50 off and £50 cashback with code VKEXL. Once your payment of £249.99 has gone through you should get a refund of £50 (provided you used the code) making the headset effectively £100 off which is an excellent saving.

If you’re reading this I'd recommend buying the headset ASAP as there’s no telling if or when these deals will disappear again. If and when they do go, you’ll still be able to grab one of the other amazing (but not quite as amazing) Quest 2 deals out there. In the US you can get the Oculus Quest 2 (128GB) for $249 at Walmart instead of $299, while in the UK you can get the Quest 2 (128GB), Elite Strap and case for £249 at Currys, saving you £140.

Currys' bundle deal has just got better. Now you're saving £50 on Meta's Oculus Quest 2 VR headset and getting the official Elite Strap and a carry case for free. This is one of the best deals we've seen this Black Friday, and one you definitely don't want to miss out on.

Preferred partner (What does this mean?)

While these Oculus Quest 2 deals are pretty fantastic I think you should just ignore all of them. This isn't the VR headset you want.

I love my Quest 2, it’s a super solid VR gadget that doesn’t break the bank. But the Meta Quest 3 is the new kid on the block, and it’s more than worth the added cost. It’s more powerful, offers better graphics, and has full-color mixed reality. If you’re looking for a VR headset, get this one – for the vast, vast majority of people, you don’t need anything else.

Though at $499 / £479 it’s twice (or almost twice) as pricey as a Quest 2 while it’s on sale for Black Friday. If you’re on a tight budget the Quest 2 will definitely serve you well, but those of you who can stretch to the Quest 3 should splash out.

The Meta Quest 3 isn’t currently discounted, and likely won't be for Black Friday 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 Walmart, Best Buy, and Target as well as others.

The Meta Quest 3 only just launched so it was extremely unlikely it would see much of a discount for Black Friday. 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.
If you’d rather shop elsewhere the same deal is available at Very, Currys, and Game among others.
