Deal: Samsung Gear VR w/Controller (2017) for $97 - 3/15/18

Amazon has the latest version of the Samsung Gear VR w/ Controller on sale right now, coming in at just $96.98. This is a great price for this Gear VR, since it is originally priced at $129, and it's a great compliment to the new Galaxy S9 that will be launching tomorrow.

The Gear VR w/ Controller was announced last year, but it does work with the Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus - all announced after this generation Gear VR. This is a VR headset that works off of your smartphone, so you can put your smartphone inside and enjoy some 360-degree videos, and even some games. This only works with Samsung devices, including the Galaxy S6 and later. So unfortunately, it doesn't work with a slew of other smartphones like Google's Daydream platform does. If you have an older device, that uses a micro USB connector, this Gear VR will still work for you, since there is an adapter included in the box. This is made by Oculus, and there are a ton of great games and apps in the Oculus Store for the Gear VR. With the addition of the controller, it makes it easier to navigate through the operating system on Gear VR as well as selecting different targets in the OS.

This item is also eligible for Amazon Prime's free shipping. Which includes free two-day shipping, and pretty cheap (usually $3.99) next-day shipping if you need it extra fast. If you are not an Amazon Prime member yet, you can sign up for a free trial of Amazon Prime. You'll get 30 days free (if you're a student, you get 6 months), and then it's $99/year (or $49/year for students). Prime members do get a whole lot more than just free shipping though, so be sure to check out the full benefits.
