The Oculus Quest 2 isn’t just a great virtual reality headset – it’s also one of our favorite gaming platforms overall and is considered a great way to get fit. If you’re wondering what all the hype is, Quest 2 is available now for $50 off and comes with a free $50 gift card.
Amazon and Best buy are all offering a free $50 gift card with the purchase of Oculus Quest 2, though Amazon is going further and offering a $50 discount at checkout as long as you check the coupon box on the store page. Amazon shoppers will also need to use code OCULUS50 at checkout to receive the free credit. The deal runs through November 29 and applies to both the $299 Quest 2 with 128GB of storage as well as the $399 model with 256GB of free space.
That extra $50 can help you boost your Mission 2 with some useful accessories as grip more for Headset Touch Controller or cans to wear safety glasses when moving. Or you can use it to start your holiday shopping or buy yourself something completely random. We will not judge.
Our favorite VR headset
Oculus Quest 2 gives you access to a wealth of games, workout experiences, and entertainment apps, and you can get it with a free $50 gift card right now.
Aside from the bonuses, Oculus Quest 2 is simply a great piece of tech for both serious players and those who just want a fun new way of entertainment. This headset is completely wireless and self-contained, so you can use it in almost any room and don’t have to set up any nasty sensors or trackers to get started. It has a great and varied library of games – you can slash blocks to music in Beat Saber, engage in lightsaber battles in Vader Immortal and experience the horrors of Resident Evil 4 right from the get-go. At first glance, just to name a few highlights. And if you get a Link Oculus cable, you can connect Quest 2 to your PC to play more advanced VR games like Half Life: Alyx and Star Wars: Squadrons.
But Quest 2 isn’t just a great gateway to virtual reality gaming – it can also help you stay active. Oculus’ headphones have some great fitness apps, such as FitXR and Supernatural, the latter of which I’ve personally used for almost a year. As someone who usually hates exercise, Task 2 makes me actively enjoy exercisingand there’s even a built-in app to track calories burned and your workout time. And when it’s time to cool off, there are plenty of entertainment apps out there that will let you have your own personal Netflix theater or experience a roller coaster ride from the comfort of your couch.
Plus, at a time when PS5 and Xbox Series X are still hard to find, Mission 2 is a great alternative if you’re looking to gift someone (or yourself) a device that can play lots of great video games. It can also be your gateway to reverse, for better or worse. Regardless of how you plan to use it, we recommend this versatile headset to anyone – especially during this rare sale.
