According to the official Oculus product page, the company is offering free shipping on Rift orders through the end of the month.

If you’re looking to pick up an Oculus Rift, you can snag a small discount if you order before the end of the month, thanks to a free shipping offer from the company.

Following shipping delays with the headset’s initial launch earlier this year, the company eventually sorted things out and beat back a 4 month order backlog, announcing in July that all pending Rifts had been shipped. Currently the Oculus Store says that headsets usually ship within 2 business days.

If you’re an Amazon Prime member, you need not fear the limited nature of this free shipping offer, as you can order the Rift directly from Amazon through Prime to get free two-day shipping (or one day for a little extra) whenever you want.

    ‘a small discount’? it’ll be around 60 euro’s, which is about 1/10th the price.. But I wouldn’t be surprised if the price of the headset will lower a bit after September..
