Moto X

Last chance to get an off-contract Moto X for $150 off the standard price

Update: Once again the Moto X has sold out at the promotional price in just under 10 minutes. Hit the comments and let us know if you were able to pick one up.

Original story: After Wednesday's sale sold out almost as quickly as it started, Motorola's giving customers one last chance to pick up a Moto X off-contract for $150 off the regular price. Hit up motorola.com/holiday2daysale to reserve your spot.

If you're successful you'll receive a code within a couple of hours, and you'll then have seven days to complete your customizations through Moto Maker, meaning you don't have to rush through the process. Good luck!

Registered! Looks like there was some pretty heavy traffic on the Moto X site.

MERCDROID says:

Good for you, man!!

brendilon says:

Also got my Glass invite today... no way I'm gonna be able to use that during the holiday season. Google's timing bites!

MERCDROID says:

Haha yeah. That's cool, man. When you finally get it, let me know how Glass works out for you.

I'll be happy to use your glass invite if you don't want it. ;-) I've been trying for weeks to get one. Thanks!

I would really like to use that glass invite if you don't think you will be able to use it. Thanks!

Just got my code. Very excited to get a new Moto X!

I saw your comment below about tethering, but couldn't reply to it.

I believe tethering is enabled. I'm not sure why it wouldn't be.

And... sold out in under 8 minutes.

Mark Holt1 says:

Score! Got it at 12:04.

jclucca says:

If someone wants a code to purchase one for their own use, PM me. I got an extra last Wednesday that I won't use.

sequoia462 says:

What a hog! sheesh
Either way, I don't know if I'd trust him.

Hi, can i get one. I was at the meeting and couldnt get one. THX

Code gone. Glad I could help.

RPGX400 says:

I got one or two too. Just pm me if you can... Crossing my fingers to get the new one emailed to me...

sri745 says:

Hey - if you have one, please let me know. Thanks. It was gone before I could get in.

RPGX400 says:

Ouch.... I kinda gave my first one away... I'll see if I can find another one.

RPGX400 says:

I have one left. Expires today sorry.

JoshP says:

I have one as well (didn't realize they don't ship to Canada until after the fact).

Let me know if someone needs it.

Peter McCain says:

YEAH. PLEASE!!

Pirate Arr says:

Went to the site at 10:10 to find it sold out. So darn close, I guess I'll get a moto g or nexus 5, but really wanted a moto x

globster2000 says:

U should use a code posted in the moto x forums. Multiple ppl are able to purchase with discount from one code. The trick is to checkout as new guest.

zackcgibbs says:

Was able to get 3, only need 1.

So why did you get 3....

zackcgibbs says:

Girlfriend and brother are on the fence, will probably go iPhone. So, I will have two extra when they distribute them later.

Quasar says:

They would be crazy to pass up a Moto X at $350 for an iPhone! You can't let them do it! You must try to save them from themselves!

dcjose48 says:

To profit from the other 2

Posted via Android Central App

zackcgibbs says:

Nope, don't want money from them, giving them away for free. Why would I try to make money off it?

MERCDROID says:

Because people are greedy, lol.

Not to mention, you're the third person to use his brother and girlfriend as an excuse for getting multiple codes.

As long as you're GIVING them away, then there's no issue.

Posted from my "Gift from God" Nexus 5

zackcgibbs says:

Yeah absolutely giving them away. Got the codes for them, they don't want androids, so I'll give them to someone that wants a Moto X.

Missed it myself. I'd take one. Good update from my N4.

zackcgibbs says:

Send me a dm, I've got one left. https://plus.google.com/+ZackGibbs

wagonis says:

I want one :-(

Was en-route to work and by the w=time I got off the flight they were all gone.

Anyone got any left?

Bingo!

MERCDROID says:

Congrats, brother!! Now, just have your cousin redeem the code and you're in business!!

Posted from my "Gift from God" Nexus 5

Yeahh mercroid :D (good memory btw)
So merc bro what do you say im good to go with the TMo GSM version?

i like to move it move it

MERCDROID says:

You should be. It's the only version that's unlocked, due to it being sold directly by Motorola.

To my knowledge, it has all of the global GSM frequencies.

When you get it, it should be a simple "pop in your Sim card and go" affair.

brendilon says:

Any idea if tethering is enabled? This is one thing I haven't seen noted around anywhere.

theicecowboy says:

The phone is tetherable on T-Mob. They want (I think) $8/month to add it to the unlimited/unthrottled $70 no contract plan.

Various apps that don't require rooting promise to simply deliver the function. FoxFi, Easy Tether and Pdanet, e.g., are all available in the Play store.

What they don't promise is that T-Mobile won't detect their use and either get you charged, reprimanded and/or whatever else T-Mob is allowed to do in this case....

Counting on your words bro. I also extensively digged the xda dev. site and they are of the same opinion ! And hey just the mail from motorola, got my code! Finally :D

ReggieTee says:

I'm still torn on the Nexus 5 and Moto X. I'll have a code that expires Wednesday if I chose the Nexus 5 shortly.

sri745 says:

If you chose the Nexus 5, can you PM me your code?

MERCDROID says:

Don't waste a good code. If you're not using it, then give the code to someone that's asking for it, like the guy above me.

Posted from my "Gift from God" Nexus 5

theicecowboy says:

For a phone I got on the promotion, will have on no contract and hope to resell at a decent price, it wasn't a hard decision for me, i.e., I can live without the degree of "future-proofing" a SnapDragon 800, etc. provides for the N5 and be excited about the extra UI experiences the X provides.

If, on the other hand, I was buying for a longer period - or any phone on contract, then I'd be torn as well.

(Caveat: Everything I've read about the Moto X's camera does cause some pangs - but even with the 4.4.1 update, the Nexus' camera is still far from best in class itself. And I will opt for a higher-end cam with my next phone, expecting my very nice P&S cam to supplement my use of the X's shooter in the meantime.)

rgdave says:

Got it at 12:04. Took constant refreshing, but the registration form finally came up.

CruiSin says:

Got one. Hope the wood backs come out before it expires...my DE from last Monday is due to be delivered today. Didn't necessarily want it, but it was the only deal I could get on CyberMonday...

theicecowboy says:

Moto's already said the elusive wood back would not be available for the promo if I remember my reading correctly.

On the positive side, that article or interview (I think it was in the recent interview with the Moto chief) also said Moto's looking into other "fun" "alternative materials" for future MotoMaker builds.

zackcgibbs says:

Got 3 codes, will give away the two I'm not using FOR FREE. I don't believe in trying to get over someone for pocket change.

Fidelio_o says:

Dam, miss it can anyone send one my way? Plz.

zackcgibbs says:

Yeah for sure, send me a DM and I'll give it to you when I get the code later today.

MERCDROID says:

Good.

I guess now isn't the time to mention the 20 codes I have huh?

Hit me up on eBay if you want them. Starting bid is 50 with a 150 reserve.

Just kidding of course...

MarkSeven says:

Dammit.. I just got a Nexus 5 but I wanted to possibly try one of these out.. Oh well..

What I don't understand is, what if not everyone uses their codes before they expire? Is Moto just not gonna sell those units then? That wouldn't be fair to customers who were really gonna get one but couldn't because all the codes were used up..

MERCDROID says:

Yeah, I don't think Motorola will have another sale for the codes that weren't used.

It's kinda lame that people are getting promo codes that they have no intention of using. It's a waste, for sure.

Posted from my "Gift from God" Nexus 5

nexuscape says:

I think many got several coupons so they can sell Moto X at a markup price on ebay.

MERCDROID says:

Gotta love scalpers, lol. I'm glad the Nexus 5 is available in stores, for only a 60 dollar markup over the Play Store. That prevents resellers from charging ridiculous prices.

Posted from my "Gift from God" Nexus 5

sconrad308 says:

For those of you that have multiple codes and giving one or two away. WAY TO GO!!!! That's how this community and really all people should be. No reason to take advantage and sell them.

MERCDROID says:

Peter Greene says:

I was able to sign up for a promo code with very little hassle. It took a few page refreshes to find the little white button that sent me to the registration page. I expected the registration page to pop up during the page refresh and the appearance of the white button on an otherwise unchanged page could have been easily missed and I would bet money that some people missed it.

astevens06 says:

Ignore the estimated delivery date. I ordered mine last wednesday immediately after receiving my code. During customizing, the bottom right corner says delivery in 5 days (not business days, just days). It also said in checkout EDD was 12/9.
I talked to customer service today because my order status still just says 'not shipped' and he said my phone hasn't even been built yet, and it's a 4-5 day 'processing period'. They have no idea when I'll actually receive my phone.

udazavlanje says:

It's not them its the weather. I just left Dallas after being stuck on Ice since Friday afternoon. People couldn't get to work or anywhere. Most of my friends had to be towed (some even twice) . I ve never seen such a state failure to respond to not bad at all weather !!! It was a few inches of frizzle and show mix while the temp was around 30s so some salt in advance and a few trucks would have taken care of it. They literally didn't move their asses until yesterday afternoon (skies were clear since Friday morning). Just horrible

Posted via Android Central App

astevens06 says:

If it's weather, then I understand, but they didn't say that. The guy was just getting irritated by my asking and kept telling me it's a 4-5 day processing time. If they're going to provide a 'you'll have it by this date', then they should explain why they can't meet it and provide a new one.

astevens06 says:

thanks for providing the explanation though, I appreciate it

NoNexus says:

It's Texas. If you can't shoot it, throw a bible at it, deport it or lethally inject it, they take awhile to figure it out...

----------------------------------------------------
So where is the competition for the Note 3? Oh right there isn't any...

jimbo says:

Insightful NoNexus.

Briredsoxs says:

I got an email from them stating weather would delay shipment

"As you may have heard, large parts of the United States are being hit by winter storm Dion. Our factory in Fort Worth, Texas as well as domestic shipping companies are already feeling the impact.

Fortunately, we have several contingencies in place and we’re still working to get your custom Moto X to you as quickly as possible. However, there may be a 1-2 day delay from the original estimate we provided on your order.

We’ll send you a shipment confirmation email, along with a FedEx tracking number, as soon as your order is complete.

Thanks for your Moto X purchase - and for your patience.

Sincerely,

The Moto Maker Team"

udazavlanje says:

As of today, estimated delivery 10 days. That's too long

Posted via Android Central App

udazavlanje says:

Mine from last Wednesday didn't even ship yet bc of major road closures due to icy roads all around Dallas F Worth area - for three days.
I just got one for my wife today - the very last minute again. I clicked like 20 times on that "save the spot" botton (refreshing in between) on my tablet and was not responding. Switched to phone and new browser and it went through somehow.

Here is the thing - Im still to test mine for battery life. I'm constantly driving so switching towers takes a toll on the battery and also tethering. I don't feel like keeping plugged in all the time. I'll give it a week or two and decide whether to keep it or not.
If I post it on sale it's gonna be the same price I purchased it for plus the new cruzerlite tpu case. If I do that online ebay or swappa it's gonna cost more (+PayPal fees) and shipping. If anyone is willing to "save another spot" let me know. :)

Check out eBay. There are people selling their codes. Most are around $15-20.

bbycrts says:

I got mine! Regarding the codes on eBay - I've heard that Motorola has linked the codes to the email address used to request the code. I don't know what that means - but I suspect you have to use the original address when you actually order your phone.

theicecowboy says:

FWIW I read this in several places as well, so I'd beware trying to pick up a "code for cash" even if the offerer thinks it's legit.

jtschanz says:

If anyone has a code you don't need, please PM me! I was 5 minutes too late on this last sale, as well as the one last week!

In return I can offer you two lightly used Galaxy S2 batteries :)

I got one! (Haven't gotten the code yet, just the confirmation email)

I actually got a plain black Moto X on contract with AT&T last week, but after hearing about their new plans, I returned it in preparation for this sale...
Thanks Moto!

I got one. Upgrading my ancient BlackBerry 7100. Is there a charity (or museum) I can donate my old phone to?

MERCDROID says:

I used to donate all of my old phones to a battered women's shelter. But, there are tons of places that accept them, now.
