Will we get the $50 credit if I purchase a second Oculus to do a gift?

Hi all!
I purchased my Oculus Quest 2 on Amazon. I've connected my facebook account and everything is going well. Now I'm going to purchase a second OQ2 directly from here (oculus.com), to do a gift.
So, to be clear, I'm going to purchase the OQ2 from here, with my existing account, and  then I'll configure it with my father's facebook account. 
I had a nice conversation with a member from the support and he confirmed me that the credit will be available for the owner of the Facebook account that will be associated with that Oculus.

Now I have a doubt, because during the purchaising, the system says 'Buy any new Quest 2 today and get a €50 Game Credit added to your account upon activation. Restriction apply.'

It says 'to your account' and not 'to the facebook account that will be associated with the device'. This puts me in trouble, since I already have my oculus connected to my fb account and there could be some restrictions.

Could someone from the support kindly let me know if the credit will be available for my father connecting the new oculus to his account, even if I'm purchasing it from my account (that, as said, has already been activated) ?

Thank you in advance.

I'd also like to know if the box comes with the content visible (so, directly in the original packaging with the image of the Oculus right there) or if it guarantees the privacy with an additional empty box.

Hey there Impe-Survivor, we're glad you reached out to learn more about the promotion! If you've purchased a Quest 2 recently and linked your Oculus Account, you'll be receiving the credit if you purchase the gift with this account. You could set up another account for your father and pass along the information which he can change to his liking, that way he'll have the credit granted to his own account. As for the packaging, the packaging will come in a brown box, with the actual Oculus packaging inside. The only thing that will hint off the package containing an Oculus would be the shipping label.

We hope this answered any questions you had. If you have any other questions, we'd be happy to help!

We look forward to seeing you and your father in the metaverse. Cheers!

But why are the pepole at the mail support that the account thats activate the oculus quest 2 is getting the credit? I don't understand anymore..

Hi @thorben.vandersande , maybe I did a bit of confusion because I've been asking to the support more than a question at time, via chat (I contacted them to help me with another request, and in the while I've also asked about this promotion and we have also been talking about the fb invitation promotion). 
So, in the end, I've probably mixed-up everything 😄

Thank you @OculusSupport , I'll be re-reading your answer later when I have a bit more of time and can focus on it, and I'll let you know if I have further question.

Thank you and
Kind regards

Question - what if the purchase of Oculus Quest 2 was made during the offer (when 50$ offer was shown on the homepage of the Oculus website) however the activation is done, say 15 days later? Ideally, we should be getting the credit right after 15 days as well ?
