Meta Quest 3 (128GB)

The best Meta Quest 3 (128GB) Black Friday & Cyber Monday 2023 sale so far is $500 bundled with $15 store credit for Quest games, from Newegg.

That’s a $15 (3%) discount over what you’d normally pay ($15 worth of game credit that you’ll need to spend anyway). All Quest 3 purchases also include the upcoming game Asgard’s Wrath 2 (normally $60) until January 27th, 2024.

Or if you’re planning to buy an upgraded headstrap and case, you can get Quest 3 (128GB) for $600 from Costco along with an Elite Strap, carrying case, and $25 store credit for Quest games. That’s a $65 (10%) savings over what you’d normally pay ($500 for the headset, $70 for the headstrap, $70 for the case, and $25 of game credit).

Meta Quest 3 (512GB)

The best Meta Quest 3 (512GB) Black Friday & Cyber Monday 2023 sale so far is $650 bundled with $25 store credit for Quest games, from Newegg.
