Update: Even better than we thought!! You now get the gift code WITH the discount.
Its Turkey Day in America but on the Internet, Black Friday is in full swing. Microsoft’s official store has already kick started their Black Friday sales with thousands of items on sale.
In fact, one of their current most popular deal is the HTC Vive VR system bundle with a big fat $100 bonus gift code when you purchase. This has already been confirmed by HTC to be one of the only Black Friday deal you should expect in 2016 from authorized retailers.
- HTC Vive VR System + $100 Gift Code — $699 (list $799)
- Oculus Rift VR Headset + $100 Store Credit — $599 (list $599)
If the Vive isn’t your forte, another popular (of sort) VR system – the Oculus Rift is also included in the gift card bonus Black Friday special from Microsoft.
Priced at $599, the Rift with the $100 gift code bonus is probably a cheaper purchase / better value, but of course the general consensus in the VR community is that the HTC Vive is simply a better VR system than the Oculus Rift.
Both offers are running from November 23 to November 28 or while supplies last. After you buy either the Vive or the Rift, the gift code will be sent to the email address associated with the transaction.
NOTE: Unlike the Rift, the Vive deal comes with a Microsoft Store gift code – which is decisively much more useful as you can purchase many more items at the Microsoft Store vs the Oculus Store (software only).
Based on that factor alone, we think the HTC Vive Black Friday deal is much better than the Oculus Rift’s.
If you’re willing to deal with stock issues on Friday, select retailers will also have the HTC Vive at $100 off. We’ll update the post accordingly when those deals arrive.
