Moto X

Discount codes will give you more time to order; Developer Edition included in the sale

Update: After actually running about 10 minutes past 4pm ET, the sale's finally over. If you didn't get a chance to save $100 on your off-contract Moto X purchase, you still have until February 14th to save $70. Not a bad deal.

Original story: In case you haven't heard, Motorola is readying a killer sale on the Moto X that drops a whole $100 off any off-contract variant you can buy from its online store. We now know that just like previous deals, Motorola will be offering up discount codes for those who show up to the site "while supplies last." That means when the clock strikes 3pm ET (noon PT), you can head to the link below and simply register to get the discount.

You'll then be emailed a $100 discount code to be applied to the purchase of an off-contract Moto X from the Motorola website. That includes devices customized by Moto Maker, even if you opt to go with a wood finish (although you still pay the $25 premium). This time around the discount even applies to the Developer Edition devices, which will go for $349. As stated before, you'll only be able to get codes from 3pm to 4pm ET.

The code, just as before, will only be good for a limited amount of time (to be specified on the code email). This is still a far better system then having to rush through your order though, and it seems to help keep Motorola's website from crashing as well. If you happen to miss out on this deal, don't worry, there will be a $70 discount for everyone available from when this sale ends until February 14th.

Promo code page is now live.

Josh Trolio says:

Just got my code! Now my wife will have her own Moto X and she can stop being jealous of mine. It was about time she upgraded from her Gnex, I did the same months ago.

quailallstar says:

Just got 3 codes :) I'm happy.

You actually intend to buy 3? Or are you just gonna hold them for other people? There are limited quantities, that's kind of a shame if you don't actually plan on using all three.

quailallstar says:

Using them for family members, so yes will be using the codes.

MERCDROID says:

That's cool, if you plan on using all three. Just don't be a dick and try to sell the ones that you don't use.

quailallstar says:

Negative... No dicking around here. I have people in my family who have been looking at this phone since before the holidays. This is their belated Christmas gift lol.

MERCDROID says:

+9000 I hope they like it!!!

EDIT: I do apologize if my original reply sounded dick-headish.

quailallstar says:

Dude no worries :) Takes a lot to upset me. Thanks for the apology regardless. Continue nerding on!

Amir47 says:

I don't even see the point in selling them.
It's still $70 off after the 1 hour window.
Not much profit to made of a code that saves you an extra $30.

MERCDROID says:

True, I did totally forget about that.

dwd3885 says:

Not really limited quantities. How can there be limited quantities of nothing tangible?

"We’ve received your successful registration and we’re working on your unique promo code. We’ll be sending it in the next few hours."

Next few hours? This promo is only till 4PM...wtf?

Stevez48 says:

Registration is only open for an hour. The Promo codes have their own expiration date/time.

jd914 says:

Gotcha Thanks!

Stevez48 says:

Cheers!

Tysonsaurus says:

The code is valid for awhile after you get the code. You actually only have an hour to get the code or while supplies last.

Stevez beat me to it.

The code is actually just for an extra $30 off. From now until Valentines Day, it's $70 for anyone. So if you register now, you effectively get $100 off total.

bpcooper14 says:

you have up to 14 days to use the code once you receive it.

318sugarhill says:

Well I got mine and it expires February 3rd. That's only 7 days to use it.

rootedVette says:

Registered for a code... Trying to convert my girlfriend to Android, this is perfect.

iphwally says:

Not sure to go for the bamboo or the developer edition. The bamboo will give me looks while the developers functionality. Any thoughts?

Posted via Android Central App

Cody Pensyl says:

If on Verizon, get the developer version. If on a GSM carrier, get the T-mobile bamboo one. Unlocked bootloader and contains frequencies for 3G/4G/LTE for all of the GSM carriers.

iphwally says:

But it is not locked to Tmobile is it?

Posted via Android Central App

MERCDROID says:

No, I'm almost positive, the TMobile version is sold unlocked.

NickLippert says:

I'll have to look into that. I'm on AT&T now but might switch if I can do better on T-Mobile.

intrepid359 says:

Yes, if you go to buy the T-Mobile version, it says unlocked right in the checkout process, on the page where you choose your carrier. It also has an unlocked bootloader, I guess.

MERCDROID says:

+1

ScottieG59 says:

OK, I've added myself to another sucker list by applying for my code, and just one. I will figure what to do with the phone later.

Of course, after replacing my wife's Samsung S4 two times in a week and several others in the past, maybe I should order a full pallet.

fantazzum says:

I got 3 codes too. Giving away as gifts to my mother in law and sister. Keeping one for myself to replace my Nexus 5. I hope phone prices like these become common across the board without promo codes in the near future.

atlas9171 says:

Got my email saying they are working on my code, guess I'll see what happens.

NoNexus says:

I have 18 of them for sale for 25$ each...PM me for a code...

/I am kidding of course, just typing for the sake of boredom..

MERCDROID says:

Lol

Can I get 10 of those? Imma try reselling them to another sucker. Lol

NoNexus says:

Sure BBM me...

For some reason that makes it seem even more scammy. Lol

Lawbreaker says:

Im going on my 4th X, but its a good thing!
Total (with tax) for my bamboo X on 1/13= $590
Total for last weeks walnut X= $510
Total for today's walnut 32 gb X = $403

Thanks Motorola for a great return policy so i feel good today, not like a tool :)
Oh... and I had a Sprint version on contract back in Dec. which is going in for trade in for $180 thanks to T-Mobile buying me out of my contract.
Fourth times for keeps, I swear!

Saneless says:

For $300 this is an even better deal than that time I made a big mistake by paying $100 to sprint to bump up my eligibility date by 8 months or so and then buy a phone for $200 more. Luckily I had an upgrade this time around but if in a year the X2 or whatever it is is an even more awesome device I'll probably take advantage of this.

intrepid359 says:

I wonder how many of these they've sold so far. Makes me wonder if the promos are working, and if Motorola is testing the pricing waters for future use.

x mech says:

not able to complete order. It says the configuration is back ordered

Memory - 32 GB

Back - Woven White

Front - white

Accent - Purple

EDIT - It is working now.

Wollombi says:

Seriously? I literally just received my new Moto X on Saturday. Curse you, Motorola!

Lawbreaker says:

if you contact them they will offer you a $70 coupon for accessories. Go to chat with your order number.

Wollombi says:

And so they did. One for 50, and one for 20. Can be used together or separately.

EDIT: For some reason AC flagged this as spam is I used dollar signs. WTF, guys?

youngjediboy says:

I just got a code because I saw this article during that promo hour. I got the code by email but I think I'm just staying with my Nexus 5. I really do want the active display and touchless controls, but I also just got the Nexus wireless charger and don't think I can give that up.

First one to send a message gets the code! If anyone wants one.

turb0wned says:

WOW, walnut it sold out... I hope you have it in stock before my code expires...

sbdunks says:

Got the promo code but I just bought the nexus 5 at the beginning of December. Not sure if I should get the moto x and keep both, sell the nexus, or not get the moto x at all! Such a difficult choice.

Posted via Android Central App

turb0wned says:

Sell the Moto X. I didn't even touch my Nexus 5 with the Moto X around.

Your post is confusing...

Lawbreaker says:

I second it. I had the Nexus 5, ordered on launch day. Held onto it till the final day I could still return it after the Sprint motomaker X came out. I haven't looked back. Don't get me wrong, I loved the Nexus 5 and it's big hi-res screen and super fast everything. For me, the X just does more of the important things for me. Active notifications alone might be enough for me. I never thought that pulling the phone out of my pocket and having it ready to go with only a slide would mean so much, but it does.

That said, I still miss wireless charging every night. Come on Moto X2...... don't let me down.

Yeah! I got 7 codes, but I'm only going to use 1 of them...maybe.

The other 6 I'm selling for $99.00.

turb0wned says:

Your an idiot. Who is going to pay you $99 for a $30 off promo code? Moron.

Sarcasm and humor are not your strong suit eh?

turb0wned says:

Sorry buddy, i've seen quite a few people in other forums trying to sell these. It was easy to believe you were being serious.

MERCDROID says:

His sarcasm flew WAAAAAAAAYYYYY over your head, lol.

batttousai says:

DOES ANYBODY NEED A NEW PHONE. I GOT A NEW CODE THAT I AM WILLING TO JUST GIVE AWAY WITH GETTING NOTHING IN RETURN. I did it for someone who might have missed out on the promo

James Cortez says:

Just ordered mine. "Upgrading" (?) from the Nexus 5. Damn you technology for making me spend so much money.

Sept. 2012 - iPhone 5
Oct. 2012 - Nexus 4
July 2013 - Galaxy S4
Nov. 2013 - Nexus 5
Jan. 2014 - Moto X

and then when the S5 launches I'll probably upgrade to that. Thank god I don't have a wife or family to provide for. Five phones in 16 months is crazy (a phone every 5 months).

someguy01234 says:

You may need to seek help, but atleast you're not using an iPhone. If you want to get the best out of Android and not constantly buying new phones, its more about utilizing the software.

BuJ_14 says:

Got mine with 4 minutes to spare

Do you have to order this off of Motorola website or Verizon website. When I build it at the end just say to email no checkout.

NoNexus says:

Motorola website

I have a code that I am not going to use. They are good for several days. PM me and it's yours.

I'm assuming your extra is long ago a done deal eh?

batttousai says:

no you have til the 4th

schnoid says:

If anyone still has a code, please PM me! My fiance's phone is dying, and I would love to get one of these for her. Thanks!

batttousai says:

you still need a code? pm me your email

I go to Motorola websites but the only thing I can do is design it and the last area only say email to myself no place to add to cart.

Was this on your phone? Their mobile site won't let you complete the order. Try switching your browser to identify as a desktop.
