Black Friday has passed and Cyber Monday is here, giving you steep discounts on the Meta Quest 2 as well as free games and other goodies with a brand-new Meta Quest 3 and the still-excellent Meta Quest 2.
The Quest 3 headset itself isn't seeing any price discounts but all retailers are bundling it with Asgard's Wrath 2 for free, a $60 value. Plus, some retailers like Newegg are giving you $15 in Meta Quest store credit so you can buy games right away.
Amazon is paying customers $50 to buy a Meta Quest 2 this year, which is already on sale for $249 — half the price of a Quest 3! Meta and GameStop are also giving out gift cards with the headset if those make more sense for you. Plus, feel good knowing that there are 20 million Quest 2 headsets out there and Meta has committed to supporting the system for three years after they eventually stop selling it. In other words, it's not going anywhere anytime soon.
All of the best Meta Quest games work on both Quest 2 and Quest 3 hardware, so rest assured knowing that you won't be left out no matter which headset you buy this year!

Meta Quest 3 accessories deals
If you're picking up a Meta Quest 3 this year, we highly recommend picking up a few accessories to make the experience better. If you only get one accessory, make sure it's a headstrap with a battery. The Quest 3 is great but battery life is pretty terrible with most users reporting just under 2 hours of gameplay on a full charge.
A new headstrap with a battery will often double playtime, ensuring your headset doesn't die at a crucial moment in a game. Second to that is a set of controller knuckles straps that help keep the controllers on your hand even if you let go. Plus, grabbing a new set of face pads can make it easy and more hygienic to share your headset with multiple people!
I've used all of these accessories and can say they're my favorite Quest 3 accessories. Plus, they're all on sale for Black Friday and Cyber Monday!
BoboVR M3 Pro:
$69.99 $49.99 at BoboVR
The best is back and better than ever! The BoboVR M3 Pro fits the Quest 3 perfectly and it'll fit your head even better thanks to the unique design that takes all the pressure off your face.

It's currently sold out on Amazon, but you can buy it at the manufacturer's website directly for the same price and get free shipping. Just be aware that it takes a few weeks since it ships straight from China.
Zybervr Head Strap for Quest 3:
$38.99 $31.19 at Amazon
Aside from giving you a ton of padding, the Zybervr strap benefits from a unique design. The downward-tilting back portion sits lower on your head for better support, and the hinged design ensures you can get the lens sitting at the perfect angle for the best visuals. We've tested it, and we love it.

How much is the Meta Quest 3?
The new virtual reality headset starts at $499.99 USD / £479.99 GBP for the 128GB version, with an increase to $649.99 USD / £619.99 when you bump the storage up to 512GB.
Should I buy a Meta Quest 3?
As we detail in our Quest 3 review, this is the most powerful VR headset that Meta has ever produced, thanks to the new Snapdragon XR2 Gen 2 processor, 33% more RAM, and the addition of the 4K+ Infinite Display. These specs give you lightning-fast speeds and a 30% boost in resolution compared to the Quest 2, plus the headset has been redesigned to be significantly lighter and thinner than its predecessor.
Games are already getting Quest 3 enhancements, including better graphics, smoother performance, and exclusive mixed-reality modes. Plus, there are plenty of upcoming Meta Quest games that will be shipping with Quest 3 enhancements out of the box including Assassin's Creed Nexus, Asgard's Wrath 2, and more.
When do Cyber Monday sales start?
Although Black Friday is officially over, that doesn't mean the sales have called it quits just yet. Cyber Monday is Monday, November 27 and we're expecting deals to happen from now until the end of the day on Monday.
If you didn't get the chance to buy something good on Black Friday, don't worry! All the best Meta Quest deals are still going on and we've linked to every one of them on this page.
Do Oculus Quests go on sale for Cyber Monday?
Yes, the Oculus Quest, properly called the Meta Quest, goes on sale for Black Friday and Cyber Monday! In fact, this year's Cyber Monday Meta Quest deals are the steepest discounts we've ever seen on Meta Quest 2 hardware, slashing $50 off the price of either the 128GB or 256GB models.
Plus, retailers like Meta, Amazon, and GameStop are offering additional $50 gift cards on top of that! That means you're not just getting $50 off the already low $299 price of the Quest 2, but you're getting $50 for free to immediately spend on games or something else entirely.
Should you buy a Quest 2 in 2023?
Now that the Meta Quest 3 is out, you might be wondering if it makes sense to spend the money on the older Quest 2. At full price, we might not recommend the Quest 2 but these Cyber Monday sales change that answer quite a bit.
Since there are already 20 million Quest 2's being played, developers will continue to make games for the platform for a few years still. This is similar to what we saw when the PS5 came out, as PS4 games are still coming out more than 2 years after the PS5 debuted.
Quest 2 games won't look as good as Quest 3 games and you won't get all the cool new mixed reality features, but it's hard to argue with spending less than half the price of the Quest 3 to get a fairly similar experience.
