VR is pretty new on the scene for many people and if you’re interested in this technology, you may be wondering where to buy a VR headset. We saw some pretty awesome Black Friday deals in 2022, there’s some stuff you need to know for shopping in 2023.

First of all, the biggest name in VR headsets — the Oculus Quest 2, aka the Meta Quest 2 — isn’t often discounted for Black Friday. For $399 retail, you’re probably wondering: Is the Oculus Quest 2 worth it?

Oculus rolled out Black Friday deals on the Quest 2 in 2021, but it’s hard to say what Meta will choose to do moving forward. The good news? The Meta Quest 2 is sold at some major retailers where Black Friday savings are always possible. Keep this post handy and check back for new info — these deals may be over but come November we’ll be updating this list with the best VR headset Black Friday deals as soon as they drop. For now, we’ve laid out what we learned about buying VR headset deals during Black Friday 2022.

Where can I find the best VR Headset Black Friday deals in 2023?

Look for VR headsets at Amazon, Best Buy, Target, Walmart, and NewEgg this Black Friday.

Again, it’s hard to say exactly which Black Friday deals will drop this year. But Amazon, Target, Best Buy, Walmart, and NewEgg all had VR headset deals in 2022. In 2021, the same offer from Oculus (now Meta) was available at these stores. If you bought an Oculus Quest 2 VR Headset on Black Friday, you’d get a $50 gift card back to that store.

Of course, it’d be great if Meta brought that deal back, but we’re not going to get our hopes up. Still, check for Black Friday deals at these stores first.


If you’re an enthusiast, look for Black Friday deals on Amazon.

Amazon carries a variety of VR headsets, from super basic models to industry-leading devices. If you’re interested in these, add them to your cart, and then Amazon will let you know if the price drops. These are some of the top-tier VR headsets you could buy on Amazon in 2022:

For the absolute cheapest option (even without Black Friday deals), buy the Google Cardboard.

The Google Cardboard VR headset is exactly how the name sounds. That’s right, it’s literally made of cardboard. It sells for a regular price of just $14.99, and all you need is a smartphone to use it. You can even download different Google Cardboard apps through Google Play.

Buy the Google Cardboard on Amazon ($14.95 MSRP) or download the DIY build kit from Google.
