If you’re hunting for an Oculus Quest 2 VR headset, Newegg has an appealing sale happening on bundles that will net you a free accessory. For $350, you can get the 64GB headset (normally $300 by itself) with Logitech’s G333 VR wired earbuds and the Oculus Elite strap. Both accessories would usually add $100 to the total, but with this bundle, you’re saving $49, so it’s like you’re getting the ever-useful and comfortable Elite strap for free.

The latest standalone VR headset from Oculus features a refined design, higher-resolution displays, and a faster processor than its predecessor. Visit Newegg to find the headset bundled with Logitech’s G333 VR earbuds and a complimentary (or steeply discounted) accessory.

Newegg has other bundles that might appeal to you more. It has one that includes the headset with the Logitech earbuds and the Oculus Quest 2 zip-up carrying case instead of the Elite strap. This one costs a total of $359, so you’re paying just $10 for the case instead of $50. The other great bundle option for $349 includes the headset, earbuds, and Oculus’ fit pack with a pair of light blockers and two alternate-width facial interfaces made for “users with low nose bridges and wider or narrower cheekbones,” as Oculus’ site says.

Lenovo’s Smart Clock Essential that has a simplistic display and Google Assistant support for voice queries and commands is down to $30 at Best Buy. This gadget usually costs $50, and it might suit you perfectly if you need a bedside alarm with some smarts. Its display shows the time, weather conditions, and current alarms, and it doesn’t take up much space. It also has a USB-A port around its back that you can charge a device through. It can play music, but it won’t be a suitable stand-in for the Google Nest Audio, as its speaker isn’t nearly as good.

One of Amazon’s deals of the day is a sizable discount on its Fire HD 8 tablet with 32GB of storage that comes bundled with the Blink Mini camera. It’s normally $125 if you pay full price for both products, but you can snag them for $75 right now (and for the rest of Monday, April 19th) at Amazon. Best Buy is in on the deal, too, if you prefer to shop there.
