If the Quest 2 virtual reality headset is your passport into the wonderful world of VR, it's easier to get your hands on (and head into) than it was in 2020. There aren't any mind-warping discounts on it, but several retailers are offering credit with your purchase. Cyber Monday is officially here, and the deal is live at all three retailers. 

Although the Quest 2 -- formerly the Oculus Quest 2, now the Meta Quest 2 since Facebook's rebrand -- is full price at both Target and Amazon, you can get a $50 store credit at both retailers. For Amazon, you need to enter the coupon code OCULUS50 at checkout to get the offer. Target and Bests Buy are offering a $50 gift card that you can use on future purchases.  

Some important notes:

  • The $50 store credit would be a discount on future purchases -- you're still paying the full $299 price when you buy the headset.
  • The promotional credit is available through Monday, Nov. 29.

We will update this story with more details as they become available. In the meantime, CNET is live blogging the best Cyber Monday sales  available from Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, Target and many more.
