To say that Oculus Quest 2 deals are rare would be a massive understatement, and the promos that do appear can disappear just as quickly. Now that the VR headset has been officially rebranded as Meta Quest 2, we're hoping that discounts become more frequent. Either way, whenever that day comes, you'll find those deals here. In the meantime, there are still a few ways that you can save right now. 

For starters, you could save money on the Oculus Quest 2 by picking up a bundle. The standard retail cost of the Quest is $299 / £299 / CAD$399.99 for the 128GB version and $399 / £399 / CAD$549.99 for the 256GB version. With a bundle, you'll typically get the headset alongside useful Oculus Quest 2 accessories such as a carrying case or link cable kit. The implication is that buying multiple items in a bundle will be cheaper than buying each accessory separately, but that isn't always true. Make sure you've confirmed each item's price before taking advantage of a bundle deal. If that doesn't work, you can try to save money by buying a refurbished model. 

Of course, special sale events like Amazon's Prime Day and the upcoming Memorial Day holiday weekend may also present some opportunities to save some cash, so it's always worth checking back on this page to see what's new (we'll keep updating it as new deals appear). So without further ado, let's take a drive into deal city and explore the Oculus Quest 2 promotions of the month.

Don't snooze on this one. You can occasionally find a limited supply of renewed Quests online, but they tend to go pretty quick. The 128GB version has already sold out, but there are currently some refurbished 256GB headsets available if you act fast. Plus Best Buy offers free shipping and 15-day returns. 

Oculus Quest 2 Bundles

Amazon currently has the most stock if you want an Oculus Quest 2 bundle. The Starter bundle comes with the headset and a carrying case, the Pro bundle comes with everything above plus the Elite Strap, while the Streamer bundle comes with a headset and a fiber-optic link cable.

At this time, you'll be paying full price for each of these accessories in addition to the cost of the Quest, but you'll save on shipping (and of course there's always the convenience factor of getting everything at once). 

Oculus Quest 2 Bundle with accessories

Oculus Quest 2 Bundle with accessories $664.19 $539.99

Speaking of bundles, Walmart is currently selling a fairly comprehensive set at a reduced cost. In addition to the 256GB Quest, the purchase will come with a Mytrix head strap, carrying case, link cable, and more. This deal may not last, so don't wait too long to make your move.

It's not a straight discount, but there are some clear benefits to buying the Quest 2 headset through the official Meta store. First of all, you'll get free shipping and a warranty with defective device coverage. You'll also get hassle-free returns for 30 days should you decide to return your device. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Is the Oculus Quest 2 worth it?

Although the console isn't perfect (and some users may not like the Facebook requirement), the answer to this question is an adamant yes. The Quest 2 is the best VR headset that Oculus has ever produced, and with a price tag that's under $400 for the 256GB version, there's really no good reason to pass it up if you're interested in VR gaming. 

Can you connect the Oculus Quest 2 to a PC?

There are two ways to connect your Oculus Quest 2 to a PC, but first you'll need to turn on the headset and download the Quest 2 app from the Oculus website. Then you can either use a link cable (often included in bundles) or connect wirelessly using Air Link.  

Which Oculus Quest 2 should I buy?

Even if you've done some research, you may still be trying to decide if you should buy the 128GB or 256GB version of the Oculus Quest 2. With price tags of $299 and $399 respectively, the decision ultimately comes down to how frequently you think you'll use it. 

Both variants have the same features and access to the same apps, the only real difference comes down to storage. 128GB is plenty of space for people who only want to play 20-30 games at a time, while users who want access to everything that the console has to offer will be more satisfied with the 256GB version. 

Will there be an Oculus Quest 3?

Given the massive success of the Oculus Quest 2, it should come as no surprise that a third generation of the VR headset is currently under development, we just don't know when it will hit store shelves. Oculus Quest 3 info leaks notwithstanding, the most conservative estimates suggest that we'll be seeing the next Quest in late 2023.
