When You Invite a Student

Earn Oculus Store Credit for yourself and students who purchase and activate a Meta Quest 2 using your referral link!

Here’s how it works: Invite students with your link to buy a Meta Quest 2. Students must follow the link and “accept” the referral while logged into an Oculus profile linked to an .edu email address. Once the student “accepts” the referral, the student must purchase and activate their new Meta Quest 2 device from the same Oculus profile used to accept the referral within ninety (90) days. If the student completes all of the foregoing steps in accordance with these terms, you will receive an Oculus Store Credit in the amount advertised to you (and as set forth at when you are logged into your Oculus profile). You must be logged into your Oculus profile to receive the credit and the student will get Oculus Store Credit in the amount advertised (and as set forth at when they are logged into their Oculus profile) once they activate their Meta Quest 2 device. Once credited to your account, your credit can be redeemed. The amount of the student’s credit will be the referral amount offered to them at the time they accept your referral link by following the link and clicking “accept.” Oculus Store Credits will not be credited to you or the student until the new Meta Quest 2 headset is activated by the student. Individuals earning Oculus store credits for this Student Referral Program are not entitled to earn Oculus store credits from other Meta Quest 2 Referral Programs for the same referral. Student referral program starts on March 18th and ends at 11:59:59 pm (Pacific Time) on April 1, 2022. This program may be extended at Meta Platforms, Inc.’s discretion.

You are the actual sender of all communications you may send in connection with this Student Referral Program and you must comply with applicable law. Referrals must be created and distributed in a personal manner that is appropriate and customary for communications with friends, colleagues and family members. By sending any communications part of the Student Referral Program, you represent that you have the appropriate permission and consent. Bulk communications or email distribution, distribution to strangers, or any other use of the services described herein in a manner outside the intent of the Student Referral Program is expressly prohibited and may be grounds for immediate termination and further legal action. We have no obligation to monitor the Student Referral Program or any communications; however, we may choose to do so and prohibit any use of the Student Referral Program. You must disclose when sending your referral link that you will receive a reward if the friend uses your referral link to purchase a Meta Quest 2 device. This is a Federal Trade Commission requirement.

For purposes of this Referral Program, a “student” is defined as an individual enrolled in an educational institution whose .edu email address is included in their oculus profile.

Oculus Store Credits have no cash value and are non-transferrable; and can only be applied towards the purchase of qualifying items on the Oculus Store. The referral link expires 90 days from the date sent or any earlier date stated in the invitation. Students must be new Oculus users; you may not send referral links to yourself; referral credit can only be applied once to an account with a newly activated Meta Quest 2 device.

Oculus Store Credit Terms

Oculus Store Credit can only be redeemed and utilized on the Meta Quest 2 device for items which can be purchased in the Oculus Store. The credit may only be used once and only by the intended recipient (even if the recipient receives multiple links from one or more friends). This offer is not valid for cash or cash equivalent and is not valid on prior purchases. The credit cannot be applied towards taxes or any expedited shipping and handling fees. Improper attempts to use or redeem constitute fraud and invalidate eligibility. The Oculus Store Credit (or any unused portion thereof) automatically expires in 12 months from the date of activation. From time to time, we may also offer you rewards that are not in the form of Oculus Store Credit, and that may be subject to additional terms and conditions.

This Referral Program may be modified, suspended and/or discontinued by us at any time, with or without notice. In such event, any existing Oculus store credit links shall remain active until the applicable expiration date of the link. Please note that we frequently implement changes, experiments, extensions and limitations for a variety of purposes at various times (the “Changes”). Every offer and the entire Referral Program are subject to such Changes and other terms and conditions which we may impose at any time. All of the foregoing shall be subject to our unlimited discretion. Your participation in the Referral Program is subject to all of the foregoing and any such Changes we may make. We may, in our sole discretion, restrict your participation in any program(s), offer(s), and/or transaction(s) should we determine that any actions by you are fraudulent, suspicious, and/or in violation of these and/or our other terms.

You are responsible for reporting and must pay any and all applicable taxes (including, without limitation, applicable foreign, federal, state, territorial and/or local taxes) with respect to any consideration, revenue, benefit and/or value paid to (or received by) you as a result of your participation in the Referral Program. By participating in the Referral Program, you hereby release and indemnify Meta Platforms, Inc. and our affiliates from any liability for any such taxes and you authorize us to deduct an amount from any such consideration payable as required by the federal, state, local and/or foreign tax law, or under other applicable law to ensure proper collection of all applicable taxes before delivery of any consideration, if any. If payment is required, and you do not pay such taxes prior to receiving the credit, your credit will be deemed forfeited. You further understand that if requested, you will provide us or our authorized representative with applicable tax ID, tax forms, documents, or certifications as may be required by applicable law for us to satisfy any tax information reporting and/or withholding tax obligations with respect to any payments hereunder.

The offer is void where restricted and/or prohibited and may not be combined with any other offer or promotion unless otherwise expressly stated in the terms of an offer. Participants must be residents of the United States and at least eighteen (18) years old or the legal age of majority in the jurisdiction where you reside.
