Good luck finding the Oculus Quest 2 on sale anywhere. Almost without exception, the incredibly popular standalone VR headset has sold for full price since the day it was released in the fall. Not that it's especially expensive, of course -- it is, pound for pound, an even better value than the first-gen Oculus Quest that debuted a year earlier. Even so, Newegg is offering the closest thing to qualifying as a Quest discount right now: Buy a Quest 2 or one of a select set of accessories and get a Newegg gift card up to $15 in value for free. This deal is running now through April 1. Check out all the qualifying accessories below.
