Get free wood on Moto X

Motorola's Moto X smartphone may be close to a year old, but that isn't stopping the company from offering a new deal on the Android smartphone. From now until August 21, people who purchase the phone and then customize it with the Moto Maker can get a free wood back cover for free.

Normally, getting the wood finish back cover for the Moto X would put an extra $25 on the price of the phone, which is currently being sold starting at $349.99 without a contract. Just a reminder: There are four wood cases to choose from: Walnut, bamboo, ebony and teak.

What do you think of Motorola offering a free wood finish for the Moto X for a limited time?

Motorola Moto X buyers can get a free wood back cover until August 21

Not a hater comment when I say that they must have seriously overestimated demand for the phone and the backs. They also might not be in this position had they had the backs available right away instead of a few months after launch

Or they're going to announce the successor on Sept 4 and figure they'll get what inventory they have off their hands with a fire sale... Of sorts.

It's been on firesale for months or I would agree with you wholeheartedly.

Popularity and sales of both the Moto X and Moto G have greatly exceeded Motorola Mobility and Google's Advanced Technology and Projects group's original forecasts and expectations.

These are continuing promotions, not fire sales. Motorola / Lenovo will likely use similarly aggressive promotional methods and techniques with their next generation of devices to further reestablish the credibility and popularity of the Motorola brand.

Not that I am doubting you but do you have a credible link to that statement?

And firesales do not mean that it didn't meet expectations, just that it did not meet initial, full price, expectations which I do not believe it did. Either the X itself or the back.

You do not order more than you need to put it on sale or give it away.

And how exactly do you get it for free??? It doesn't work for me, I got design a whole new phone for it even I have already a Moto X

And hopefully a removable battery. I used the X for 2 weeks straight and never got that magical "all day" battery life.

I did and I think I get around 16 hours with about 5 hours on screen time with 4.4.4. This was a huge improvement over my Xperia S.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it sounds like you said the wood cover will be...free? =P
I guess if you're redundantly redundant, readers will understand better? ;-)

Look at most of the comments sections, people rarely make it past the title let alone the middle/end of an article
