Meta Quest 2 (128GB)

The best Meta Quest 2 (128GB) Black Friday & Cyber Monday 2023 sale so far is $250 bundled with $50 store credit for Quest games.

That’s a $100 (33%) discount over what you’d normally pay ($50 off the headset and $50 worth of games).

If you’d rather get that $50 of store credit elsewhere, you can find the same deal with a $50 gift card to the respective retailer at Target and Newegg.

Or if you’re planning to buy an upgraded headstrap (which we suggest you do!), you can get Quest 2 (128GB) for $250 from Best Buy along with a free Elite Strap (normally $60).

Meta Quest 2 (256GB)

The best Meta Quest 2 (256GB) Black Friday & Cyber Monday 2023 sale so far is $300 bundled with $50 store credit for Quest games (find the option for the 256GB model when you hit ‘Add to Cart’).

That’s a $100 (29%) discount over what you’d normally pay ($50 off the headset and $50 worth of games).

If you’d rather get that $50 of store credit elsewhere, you can find the same deal with a $50 gift card to the respective retailer at Target and Newegg.

Or if you’re planning to buy an upgraded headstrap (which we suggest you do!), you can get Quest 2 (256GB) for $350 from Best Buy along with a free Elite Strap (normally $60).
