Meta Quest 3 Deals: Get a Free Game and 6 Months of Meta Quest Plus With Upgrade
The Meta Quest 3 is still relatively new, which means there aren't a lot of direct deals on them. Instead, most offers include either a free game or a Meta Quest Plus subscription.

The latest Meta Quest 3 is one of the best VR headsets when it comes to bang for your buck. While the games and apps for the Quest 3 are still in their early days, the headset offers a unique mixed-reality experience. Because it's the newest headset and a big upgrade to the Meta Quest 2, you won't find a lot of great deals for it, but you can pick the Quest 3 up at most retailers and get a free game thrown in. If you go for the 512GB model, most retailers also add six months of Meta Quest Plus. While those aren't as great as a direct discount, the free game and subscription add up to around $100, so it's about that much in savings you get.
Unlike the Meta Quest 2 that came before it, the Quest 3 embraces both virtual reality and mixed-reality experiences, similar to Apple's Vision Pro and last year's Quest Pro. It costs a lot less than both those devices, though, with a $500 starting price.
