It’s a safe bet the Oculus Quest 2 virtual reality headset will be a hot item this holiday season. For starters, it’s awesome — literally “too good to be true,” according to— and it’s actually pretty affordable at $299.
Here’s a rare opportunity to get it for even less, if you’re an Amazon Prime subscriber: For a limited time, you can getand pay using your Amazon Prime Rewards Visa card. That would bring your net total down to around $269.
Similarly, you can getand pay using your Amazon Prime Rewards Visa card. That would bring your net total down to around $359.
As noted, these are preorders: They’re scheduled to ship on Oct. 13 — which also happens to be.
So what’s the deal with this Visa card? It has no annual fee and normally pays you 5% back on just about all Amazon purchases. But there are occasional bumps like this one, and in fact the Quest 2 is just one of manyAmazon is offering right now.
And just to sweeten this even further, if you’re an Amazon Prime subscriber and don’t already have this Visa, you can.
I believe you could use that card to knock the purchase price of the Quest 2 down to just $199, but I don’t know if the 10% cash-back option would still apply. Alternately, you could use the card to get the Quest 2 256GB for just $299.
However you string these options together, it’s arguably the best Quest 2 preorder deal you’ll find anywhere.
