I would recommend choosing the Amazon deal because you have more options to choose from when spending $50 in credit. However, if you’re buying Quest 2 as a holiday gift for a kid, a $50 credit toward app and game purchases is a great way to get them started.

Meta Quest 2
Meta Quest 2 is light, portable, comfortable, and runs virtually all content in the Meta Quest ecosystem. This is the best VR headset for the money right now.
Quest 2 is wireless and compact, the software and interface are easy to navigate, and the headset and controllers are comfortable to use. I recently wrote about the Supernatural app as a killer app for fitness in Meta Quest, and it works just as well in Quest 2 as it does in Quest 3.
