When HTC announced their “HTC Advantage,” perks offered to owners of the HTC One M8, we figured they were the only OEM on the block offering free replacements of damaged or broken smartphone displays but we were wrong. As it turns out, some folks on the Moto X subreddit are sharing an interesting perk, one that we’re sure not too many people know about (we sure didn’t).
Apparently Motorola offers Moto X, Moto G, and Moto E customers a free, 1-time replacement of a cracked/damaged displays (a $175 value), as long as the phone was purchased directly through Motorola’s website. An awesome perk to be sure, it’s one you wont find advertised anywhere on Motorola’s site, but we were able to receive confirmation directly from Motorola that the offer is indeed valid, although it doesn’t extend to models purchased from any other store or retailer.
What’s more is the customer service rep we spoke to said the offer would also extend to the upcoming Motorola Moto X+1, again, as long as it’s purchased directly through Motorola. Links for anyone on the fence about buying a phone through Motorola can be found below. Anyone else out there with a busted Moto X, G, or E display can submit their device for free repair/service through Motorola here.
