Amazon Offering $100 Gift Card with Oculus Rift Purchases for Today Only

on December 7, 2016 12:02 PM

Virtual reality entered the mainstream this year with the release of VR headsets across consoles and PC, and now those looking to jump in to the world of Oculus Rift can do so with a special, limited-time offer from Amazon.

Amazon is currently hosting a deal for today only on Oculus Rift headsets that provides purchasers with a free $100 Amazon gift card. While the headset itself is still at its $599 MSRP, the deal still offers a nice bonus for purchases of the (pricey) headset, which you can use toward the newly-released Oculus Touch controllers or other items on Amazon as you see fit.

The Oculus Rift headset released in March of this year alongside competitors such as HTC Vive and Sony’s PlayStation VR, with the headset coming in more of a mid-range price compared to the $799 Vive and PlayStation VR’s $399 price point. Alongside the headset, this month also saw the release of the Oculus Touch controllers for more intuitive motion controls and feedback while playing VR-compatible titles.

Oculus Rift is available now for PC, and you can click here to check out the deal from Amazon while it is available for today only.
