Many expressed distaste with Motorola’s suggested retail price of $200 on a new two-year contract for the Moto X, but a few select lucky folks might be able to take another route to get this thing for quite cheap. And by cheap, I mean free.
The deal would be extended to those who agree to order the device through Motorola’s Moto Maker website (only available for AT&T right now) and are a friend or family member of someone who works at Motorola (we imagine that friend or family member will have to know of your intention to take advantage).
The catch is that the recipient must answer a short survey to get $200 back — $100 as soon as you check out, and another $100 if once you complete a survey and give Motorola feedback on the ordering process. A bit extra can be earned if you are selected to participate in a phone interview with Motorola about the experience.
This obviously won’t be a widespread solution for those looking to get this phone on the cheap, but with more than 2,000 workers being added thanks to Motorola’s Fort Worth, TX plant there should be a decent amount more who will be able to get in on it.
