It sucks this hasn't been active before. I've made 4 people buy Quest 2 but it didn't use to work back then, at least in Scandinavia. But now it's too late:(
This will be stickied for the next few days for informational purposes, but will not be stickied beyond that.
Edit: 11/21/2021 - Repinned due to seeing a record number of people trying to refer people in new posts today.
Edit: 11/24/2021 - We now have a custom bot on discord that is first come first serve. [This discord invite](https://discord.gg/wy9aHR8SgA) will bring you straight to that channel. Due to this we will be starting to filter referral links on Reddit to stop the spam.
It's the one that's ran by the same team as the sub for /r/virtualreality , /r/OculusQuest and /r/ValveIndex .
We've been around since 2016.
Seeing a few comments about this so I'll post separately.
You totally **can** still redeem a referral code after you've linked your headset, but it involves Factory resetting your Oculus (can be done quickly through the app). This worked for me yesterday and I received the credit right away.
Basically you'll have to factory reset (you'll lose any apps, settings, and data stored on the Oculus), redeem the referral **after** factory resetting and **before** you sign back into your Facebook account on the Oculus during setup. Then you'll get your credit and the referrer will get notified of theirs as well.
I've been getting a few questions about this. Do you (or does anyone here) know if:
1. The headset had to be purchased on the official oculus store for this to work?
2. What will happen if the person you refer has already purchased games?
NOTE: **I'm doing Non-US Referrals ONLY - UK, Europe, Australia, Canada, Belgium, France, Thailand, Singapore, Spain, Belgium, etc. etc. It involves adding me on Facebook. Just DM me**
It's open to all quest 2, not limited to where you purchase it. Owning games doesn't matter because they're not going to leave out people upgrading from quest 1
Just bought my quest 2 3 days ago. Anyone else have a referral code that's valid?
If ya still looking mate happy to add ya on FB and send you one.
I’m looking mate from the UK btw
I can sort you out if you want to PM me?
I’ll be home in 2 hours so mind sending me your details cause I just bought a headset this morning and I’m trying to get that free money?
Hey sorry mate, time zones screwed us over, if you still need one DM me and I'll send you my facebook info. Sorry for the slow reply!
Aww shit. My bad man. I accepted someone else’s referral. I was in a huge rush so i was desperate.
All good mate, timezones be like that, glad you got one! That's all that counts in the end.
Do I need to make the actual purchase through the referral link?
Bought my quest 2 4 days ago. How do I give my referral code so I can get the $30 store credit right away to be able to purchase an actual game to play lol
from what I understand you get the store credit 30 days after your friend activated their quest
I have already activated my quest 2 a few days ago, does that mean I can't get the referal anymore?
You ***MIGHT*** be able to make it work with a factory reset. Can't swear to it presently, but I know I've read in the past where that worked for some folks. Be aware, a factory reset loses all game data that is not cloud synced (which is a surprising number of them).
Yep i just did this yesterday, got my oculus on Saturday and it worked. Just make sure you redeem the referral *before* you sign back in with your Facebook account and it'll give you the credit.
Awesome. Now I have to test if multiple factory resets will allow multiple referral redemptions (I've got 2 kids and 1 extra headset, so I'd like to give them each $30 to spend on games I'll never play...).
Hey did you ever get around to trying that out? Got 2 in my house aswell and wondering would I be able to send each a referral link or is that impossible
Just replied to u/gadgetskopf, but you can still redeem it but you'll have to factory reset it and then redeem the referral *before* you sign back in with your Facebook account on the Oculus. I literally just did the same thing yesterday and it worked perfectly.
Thank you, did what you said and received the referall right way!
No problem glad it worked for you! Fortunately the setup on the Oculus is really short so you can get back into it after resetting it pretty quickly.
Yeah, as far as I know you can because you haven't activated the device. If you want a referral then you have to add the other person to Facebook so he can send you the link. Once you click the link the referral will be activated and then you can activate the device and receive the free store credits.
I can share my referral with you if you want.
So do I have to add you to my Facebook friends or my oculus friends? Please PM me the link. Oculus if possible, else Facebook. Thank you.
You need to have them as a Facebook friend so that they will be able to send you the referral link through fb messenger in the Oculus website.
I just checked and sadly I don't have referrals available in my country. I may be able to send them with a VPN (had to use one to activate one I got from a guy from the Netherlands) but I'm currently busy so it may be better for you to just ask someone else for their referral.
Got one, thanks for the info.
Anyone wants a referall code for free money PM me :) i have codes left
If you need a referral, DM me I have plenty
I have referral codes to give! Message me!
One question: can i receive a referral as i live in Germany?
I dont want to factory reset not knowing if that works or not. Does anybody know that for sure? Thanks a lot!
Here’s my referral link for anyone that wants the $30 store credit. Just sign in and register before you activate your headset.
PM me if you need a referral. Just need your facebook account link (grab it from an web browser address bar).
If you wish to be blessed by Jesus with a sweet sweet referral code then slide yourself into my Direct Messages, commonly referred to as DMs.
Pm me and I'll share my referral with you, I'll gift you any $10 app.
I help you you help me!
PM me for a referral :)
I have many referral links with $30 bonus! If you have not paired your headset with your FB account, send me pm with your FB link and I’ll share the referral
Use this link and we both get $30 store credit.
Hi I just bought a quest 2. Could someone be kind enough to send me their referral link? Much appreciated!
even if i bought a few apps already?
You have to do a factory reset though the app
Can we use the referal if my friend already activate the q2 days ago?
I also have 5 free referral links. If you have not paired your headset with your account you can get 30 dollars credit and so can I. Pm me for the link.
I still have a few left. If somebody want a referral code contact me on Reddit with a PM containing a link to your Facebook account. I will send you one!
All available again!
DM me for a referral link!
I've got referral codes feeling lonely.
can you send me one?
Sure. DM me
Hot and fresh referral link here! PM me that Facebook link if you're interested.
Dm me for a referral link ;)
DM me for a referral link
I still have four referrals left. If you want one DM me!
might as well put my referrals to use, DM if anybody is interested
Do i have to be friends with the person on facebook? I have some friends i know strictly through games that want to get a quest.
You have to become FB friends in order to send them the link via the Oculus app.
I have all 5 referal links unused if anyone needs one!
Confirming it's possible to claim even if you already have a headset. PM me if you want to try -I have 4 codes left and I'm happy to walk you through the steps (assuming you haven't claimed the credit yourself already).
EDIT: 1 left
I just bought quest2.and I need a referral code,PM me please.
Not sure if this is allowed but I'm offering $5 Paypal to anyone willing to use my link. A plus-plus situation you get your $30 referral plus my $5 on top if you use my referral. All 5 slots left
Check out my SLRep Profile below, its basically my vouch page that confirms payout to other redditors for using my referrals for other various services. You got nothing to lose regardless. Can grab two games off the bat with this opportunity.
Comment "bid" underneath this comment and send me a PM so we can exchange FB info for the referral. Once I see the credit on my account I'll message you either on reddit or FB asking for your payment info so I can send you the $5. Pretty easy/self explanatory.
Pm me your Facebook for that juicy 30 dollar referral

I'm having a heck of a time using the referral process in my Oculus app.
I want to send a referral code to one of my messenger contacts but that person doesn't appear in my "recommended" list of contacts.
When I use the search function it won't show any of my other messenger contacts. I'm logged in so I'm not sure why it's doing that.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I'll gift you Cubism / Thrill of fight / Township Tale,
if you use my referral!
Spooky October giveaway!👻👻

Hi, we have a community in Hungary and I am looking for existing quest 2 owners for the oculus referral program. I have a few friends who will buy quest 2 and there is the oculus referral program that gives $30 store credit to the sender and the new owner as well. I cannot send the referral as I am not from a supported country and the facebook has to be registered in a supported country.
So if anyone is from a supported country and interested message me
Here you can read more about it
I’ve just ordered a quest as a gift for my wife and I’ve accepted a referral from a friend. Thing is the quest will be my wife’s and my being want to be the admin account, can I use the credit in the referral to buy her a game as a gift?
Does the referral system work in Germany? The website says that I can’t use it due to Quest headsets not being available officially.
Pm if you still need a referral! I just need your Facebook account link. Win/win for both of us!
PSA if anyone accidentally activated their quest without knowing about the referral deal, you can still get it by doing a factory reset on the quest, then using this link https://secure.oculus.com/my/devices/ to unlink it from your account. just did it myself and it worked
European owner, I have a referral code if anyone is interested.
PM me if interested in the referral link so we can both benefit from it.
will this program still be active for the rest of this year? and does it work in uk?
It shows the end date as 12/31 on the app. Looks like they will take advantage of the holiday shopping.
Pm me if you need a referral link
Bought my oculus quest 2 four days ago and am looking to get the $30 referral bonus so I can actually buy a game for it. How do I give someone my referral code so I can get the $30 in store credit right away?
If you're giving someone your link they have to buy a quest and you have to wait 30 days, if you're looking to get credit instantly feel free to factory reset and msg me and I'll add ya on FB and send you one (you get the credit instantly, I have to wait 30 days), if ya still looking that is.
I still have 5 referral codes left. Proud owner of a Quest 2 since a few weeks. :-)
Anyone want one?
Would make me very happy as I am dying to try out Resident Evil 4.
Hey I’m interested in a referral code if you still have one available. Just purchased my quest tonight. Thanks so much!
I've sent you a private message
Anyone looking for a referral PM me, or comment here. I have a quest 2 :) Have a few referrals left. Also there is a black Friday deal starting November 25th where you will get an extra 50 euro credit on top of this.
Hey I’m interested in getting that referral code if it’s still available. Thanks!
im confused as to how i send a referral link to someone else to use. is there something within facebook messager which auto sends oculus referral links? if so where?
You have to add them as a friend on FB first. Then from the Oculus app you click on the Diamond icon and search for them. You send it through the Oculus app and it uses Messenger to deliver the message/link.
I don’t see a diamond icon in my app. I just bought the quest today using a referral. Does that mean new owners are not eligible for referral bonus anymore?
Im on iOS and have the icon in the top right hand corner of the app. You can also try to click on your profile pic and the side menu will open and there should be a referral section about 5 down the list.
Found it on desktop :D
Quick question, can I use my US' friend referral link if I live in France ? Some people say I can't.
Slide into my DMs if you're after a referral code, promise I won't stalk you on Facebook.
...You'll have to link me your Facebook profile for me to add you!
Hey new Quest 2 owners or potential ones taking advantage of the Black Friday deals this season, PM if you want to get a referral so we can each get $35 CDN / $30 US.
PS. If you're not aware of the deals, it's live now on Amazon, Best Buy, as well as Oculus Store. Enjoy!
Do you have to be friends on Facebook for the referral to work?
yes the Oculus app sends the referral through FB messenger.
Getting a Quest 2 today, anyone got a referral code they'd like to share so we get free cash money?
Nope, not unless I can stack them! Thanks!
I have 10 referrals left for the month. Message me if you need a link :D (we don’t have to Facebook friends for it to work)
Didn't know that was possible.
Let me know if it works so I can do it when I'll eventually upgrade to Q2
I just purchased a quest 2 last night. If anyone has an available referral code, message me please! Thanks!
Anyone got any referral link?
I got you, what's your Facebook?
I have 5 referral codes left according to the page, we will both get £23 it says. need to be FB friends in order for me to send it, will delete right after. PM me
Here’s my oculus referral [link](https://www.oculus.com/referrals/link/BabyFae/) ⚡️✨
Does the referral thing only work in US or if I buy the headset through retailer in estonia i will be able to get $30 for games too?
I've just bought a Q2 but haven't even opened the box yet. Does anyone want to send me a referral link?
Anyone wants a referral, I have 5 left, just P.M. me please.
Hello guys! My Quest 2 arrives today so I'm looking for a referral link before I activate the headset.
I got a referral code for anyone that just got the quest PM me and we can get the store credit!!
DM If you want a referral code. :) forgot to say UK based
I have a referral code for anyone that is interested. I also think I have a few pcvr steam keys that I’d be happy to toss in as incentive.
I just bought a oculus, could someone send me a referral code?
So the referral link becomes available after the first person buys the quest? For example- I buy and then send link to my friend. My friend buys and activates. We both get the 30$ credit 30 days after second friend registers. Where do you get the referral link from once the first person purchases?
if you just activated the quest, referrals start showing up in 24hrs in mobile app. Ypu can still go to desktop site & access your referral link i guess.
Use this link and we both get $30 store credit. https://www.oculus.com/referrals/link/edmax/
done, thank you
Need a quick referral? Don’t want to friend a random on FB? Click my direct referral link and get your money in seconds? Thank you!!
US based referral code -->> [Here](https://www.oculus.com/referrals/link/dlang23/)
If you end up getting a new Quest 2 click this link and we both get $30 in store credit. We don’t even need to be FB friends and if you already set it up you can simply do a factory reset for the headset.
Here’s my referral link: https://www.oculus.com/referrals/link/neuguy42/
$30 for you and $30 for me.
Anyone have a UK referral?
