Save on multiple Meta Quest 2 VR games this weekend only

Meta held its 2022 games showcase last week, raising the curtain on several new VR games in the works for the Quest 2 headset. We’ve got a roundup of the titles we’re most excited about here. To celebrate the event, Meta reduced the prices of several VR games that only receive discounts a few times each year. So whether you’ve just purchased a Quest 2, or just want to fill out your library a bit more, check out these deals.

I’ve highlighted a few offers that I find particularly interesting:

If you’re looking for a compact yet capable smart speaker, Google’s Nest Audio may fit the bill. Normally $99.99, this model is discounted on the Google Store, as well as Best Buy and Walmart for $79.99.

As someone a little tired of reserving counter space for a behemoth Google Home Max, upgrading (or, technically, downgrading) to the smaller Nest Audio was a smart move for me. It delivers crisp sound that can get loud without degrading its low-end or high-end delivery, so I’m not missing that louder speaker as much as I thought.

Google NestAudio

Google’s smart speaker with better sound quality than Google Home. Pairing two in stereo can provide a better experience while playing along to your favorite tracks.

Best Buy is running a slew of Earth Day promotions that aim to get you into one of its stores, with your old computer accessories in tow. And there’s good reason if you get the chance this weekend, as the retailer will give you a 20% coupon on a new Logitech accessory, like its excellent Logitech StreamCam, or the G435 wireless gaming headset, when you turn in an old PC or gaming accessory. This in-store offer ends May 6. You can read the details here.

Also at Best Buy, you can trade in your old modem, router, or modem/router combo for 15% off a new model. This is another in-store only offer, and unfortunately Google network products are excluded from the offer. However, it should help you get a good price on a product from other brands recommended in the space, like Eero, Orbi, and others. Details are here.

Finally, for Best Buy’s in-store Earth Day promotions, you can bring any hard drive or SSD to the retailer to recycle and receive a coupon that will reduce the cost of a Western Digital hard drive by 10%. or SanDisk Professional. Note that these are high capacity HDDs and not fast SSDs. Still, it might be worth it if you need extra storage space for large files. Here are the details, and here are the eligible models that can be discounted.

The Google Nest battery-powered doorbell is getting a deep discount, and it’s happening at Amazon and other retailers. Normally $179.99 for this slender model, you can pick one up for $149.99 in various colors. This could be a great product for new smart doorbell owners. To that end, my colleague Dan Seifert praised its great staff and package detection capabilities, as well as its above-average battery life.

However, this battery-powered option leaves a few features on the table compared to previous generations. Namely, it shoots at a lower resolution and lacks 24/7 continuous recording. Still, this deal lessens the sting of those flaws. Read our full review.
