Prime Day kicks off on Tuesday, July 11th, so if you're looking to find a great Quest 2 deal during the sale, we can point you in the right direction. Discounts on the popular VR headset have historically been pretty rare, but with the impending arrival of the Meta Quest 3, we think that's all about to change.
We're still waiting for the official Prime Day deals to drop, so keep an eye on this page for updates. In case you weren't aware, the 128GB of the Meta/Oculus Quest 2 is currently priced at $299, while the 256GB headset is $349. Historically, we've never seen the price of the Quest 2 drop below that $299 point, but we'd bet money that the headset will be seeing a 15% discount or more once Prime Day goes live.
In the meantime, check this page for all the best Quest 2 prices currently active. And for what it's worth, we're not limiting our attention to just Amazon either; retailers like Best Buy and Walmart are sure to be launching their own great sales.
As we note in our Oculus/Meta Quest 2 review, the headset continues to offer the best VR experience for most people, and if you can get it for cheap enough, there's really no reason to not give it a try.

Frequently asked questions
When is Prime Day 2023?
Amazon's biggest sale of the year, Prime Day 2023 will kick off on July 11th at 3am EDT and run through July 12th. Thousands of items across the site will be discounted (potentially including the Quest 2, fingers crossed), but you'll need to be a Prime member to enjoy the best deals.
Not a member of Prime yet? Fear not, you can sign up for the Amazon Prime free trial and enjoy all of the benefits of the sale event without paying a dime. After Prime Day wraps up, you're free to cancel your membership or pay $14.99/month when the month is over.
What is the Oculus Quest 2?
Simply put, the Oculus Quest 2 is a VR video game console. But unlike other consoles, the Quest is a completely standalone device that requires no connection to a TV or computer (although there is an option to display what's happening inside the headset on a nearby screen). Once setup is complete, you're given access to all of the Oculus Quest 2 games and apps found in the Oculus store. Most of these games cost around $10-$40 and average about 1-2GB in size.
Is it Oculus or Meta?
Way back in the Summer of 2021, Facebook officially rebranded itself as "Meta", and the Oculus VR brand followed suit shortly thereafter. Despite their best efforts, however, search engine data shows that most folks still prefer to use the old name, Oculus Quest 2, almost two years later. Although we tend to alternate between the two names depending on context, we usually use the name Oculus for clarity and convenience (for now).
Once you set up your Oculus Quest 2, you'll need to buy some games. Head over to our list of the best Oculus Quest 2 games so you can stop searching and start playing.
