How Do You Redeem Meta Quest Plus For Free?
When you setup your Quest 3 headset, it should prompt you during the setup process to redeem your free six month subscription. However, this only happens during a very specific sequence of events.
If you setup your Quest 3 headset using the Meta app on your phone or complete half of the process and then come back later to finish, you might not see the option to redeem your Plus subscription.
