In the world of VR headsets, the Apple Vision Pro might be the new kid on the block, but with prices starting at $3,499, it’s prohibitively expensive for most. The latest Meta Quest 3 is a great alternative, and while it certainly isn’t a perfect system, it’s more than capable. Unfortunately, given that it’s still relatively new and a considerable upgrade from the Meta Quest 2, there aren’t any good direct discounts on it.

However, buying the 128GB version will net you a free game, while the 512GB model will also get you Meta Quest Plus for six months. The game and subscription add up to about $100, so it’s a good deal if you look at it from that perspective.

Unlike the Meta Quest 2, 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.

Other improvements over its predecessor include a new Qualcomm Snapdragon XR2 Gen 2 processor, better graphics, a higher-resolution display and improved controllers. 

We’ll continue to update this collection of Meta Quest 3 offers as more become available, so if nothing grabs you right now, check back later.

Best Meta Quest 3 deals

Newegg is offering a free copy of Asgard’s Wrath 2 with Meta Quest 3 for $499. Upgrade to the 512GB Meta Quest 3 and you’ll get the same free game and six months of Meta Quest Plus, but this package will set you back $649. 

Similar to the Newegg deal, Amazon’s offer features both versions of the Meta Quest 3 and includes a free copy of Asgard’s Wrath 2 (a $60 value). Go for the 512GB variant for $649 and you’ll also get a free six-month trial of Meta Quest Plus along with Asgard’s Wrath 2. 

Best Buy is offering the same deal as Amazon: You’ll get a free copy of Asgard’s Wrath 2 with the Quest 3 128GB or the 512GB.

Target has the same offer as the retailers above, including a free copy of Asgard’s Wrath 2 and a free six-month Quest Plus membership with the 512GB version. You’ll also save 5% when you pay with a Target RedCard, which saves you up to $32.

Like other retailers, Walmart is offering a free copy of Asgard’s Wrath 2 with the Meta Quest 3. 

You can, of course, go straight to Meta to pick up the new Quest 3 headset. And you’ll see the same free game there. If you upgrade to the 512GB model, you’ll get the six-month trial to Meta Quest Plus for free, too. 

The Quest 3 is also available for purchase at B&H, and the 128GB model is currently $498, a modest $1 discount. You’ll get the free game, and you can get tax back as cashback if you pay with B&H’s own Payboo credit card. 

Gamestop offers similar deals as the other retailers, with the 128GB version getting Asgard’s Wrath 2, while the 512GB version gets both Asgard’s Wrath 2 and six months of Meta Quest Plus
