Meta recently increased the price of their VR headsets, so it's no wonder that so many folks are on the hunt for the best Oculus Quest 2 deals. Unfortunately, we still don't have a ton of good news to share.
Although the best Labor Day sales are launching at this exact moment, there has been a very noticeable absence of price cuts for the Oculus Quest 2. We're hoping more deals will go live as we enter the weekend, but if they don't, it's looking like we'll need to wait until the holiday season to see any serious discounts on the VR headset. There are a few glimmers of hope, however.
For one, Meta is currently giving away a free copy of Beat Saber to everyone who buys a Quest 2 console. Bundles are also still available, and it's not unusual to see Oculus Quest 2 accessories get discounts from time to time. Lastly, you might also come across refurbished headsets. These consoles are usually certified renewed and meet like-new standards, particularly if you buy them directly from the official Meta store. No matter which route you choose to take, we'll be collecting all of the best Oculus Quest 2 deals and placing them below.

Amazon also 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).

Frequently Asked Questions
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.
Do you need a Facebook account to use the Meta Quest 2?
Recently, after months of promising that they'd do so, Meta finally announced that users will no longer need to have a Facebook account to use the Meta/Oculus Quest 2. That's a huge relief for many gamers and VR enthusiasts, since the Facebook requirement was probably the number-one complaint that users had about the video game console.
That being said, you will still need to set up a Meta account in order to use the headset. You must be 13 or older and provide Meta with your name, email address, birth date, and payment information.
