Get $100 off a Moto X for 1 hour only starting Jan 27th (while supplies last)


We Are The RhoadsClient: Motorola

Good news for those that have been keeping the Moto X — and it’s newly affordable wood back options — on their Android radar. Motorola is having a quick 1 hour sale starting Monday, January 27th at 3PM ET, where they’ll be offering $100-off the full off-contract price Moto X. This means you’ll be able to customize your own 16GB model for $300, or $350 for the 32GB (add $25 for wood options).

It’s one of those “while supplies last” sorta promotions (just like their last one), so you’ll have to be quick. Should you find yourself missing out on this deal, you can still nab $70-off as a door prize, running all the way until Valentine’s Day. Mark your calendars, folks.

  1. To clarify, does this mean a 16 GB Moto X will be $299?

      1. Wow, that is one heck of a deal!

        1. Good alternative to the Nexus 5 but even then, I’d still opt for the N5 over a Moto X.

          1. what are your reasons for that Chris?

          2. As someone who’s owned both, I just didn’t find myself using Moto apps like Touchless Control very often. Love the size and clarity of the Nexus 5 display over Moto X but really in the end, it’s all about speed for me. The Nexus 5 has ruined me. I can’t go back to my HTC One, Galaxy S4, Moto X — nothing. Right now it’s Nexus 5 or nothing (until the next crop of flagships are released).

          3. Do you notice a huge difference in speed between the X and N5? I have the N5 myself and came from an N4 so I’m curious if you find it to be that much quicker.

          4. I have both phones too and I prefer the Nexus 5. The speed difference between the Nexus 5 and Moto X is negligible when moving between home screens and the app drawer. You’ll notice a big difference when web browsing or in apps where scrolling, panning and zooming are involved. The Nexus 5 is just much smoother. And as Chris mentioned, the screen is better in terms of clarity, brightness and size. Also, the camera on the Nexus 5 is better. You can take some pretty amazing shots when HDR is on and the video recording in my opinion runs circles around the MOTO X.

          5. No need in letting those neglected phones collect dust my good Sir, so send em my ways :p jk I’m on Verizon so I couldn’t take advantage of them anyways. Which also makes this a stellar deal since a Nexus phone isn’t an option for me (and some others) for the time being. May jump on this and put the Xbone on hold since the S3 feels ancient in my hands now… :(

          6. Agree with you Chris. Active notifications really try to solve a problem I never had. You have to hold your phone to take action on a notification anyway, so a color specific blinking light (green for Whatsapp, red for SMS, etc) is just as useful. That speed tho (Nexus 5)…that’s the difference.

          7. NOT just as useful because that blinking notification light drains battery. That aside, when a Moto notification flashes, you can simply touch the screen, and see all the info of said notification at a quick glance, without ever having to pick up, open, flash a bright screen, or scroll through your phone. Not to mention, not having to interrupt whatever else you’re doing, say for example, if you’re at work or in a dark theatre. Sorry, but they are in COMPLETELY different leagues.

          8. Lol if you think the tiny LED on the Nexus 5 “OMG drains batteries!” To each his own, I suppose. I bought and sold three (yes, three) Moto X’s. Wanted to like it, but found the Nexus 5 and wireless charging is just a better device. For me.

          9. I own 3 Nexus devices. And yes, the notification light (especially if you have a large amount set and set with different colors) does drain battery. Do you think the light and it’s process is powered from some external source? The sun perhaps? I totally get different strokes, for different folks. One should pick a phone for their specific needs and use case. I was just pointing out that your claim that a notification light is “just as useful” as Moto’s Active Display is erroneous.

          10. There was no OMG nor exclamation point in my statement. Any process on a phone, including flashing lights (which in turn force you to have to keep turning your screen on and off to peruse) drains batteries, particularly as I have previously stated. Also, as I have previously stated, different strokes for different folks. I personally, think the Nexus 5 is an inferior device to the Moto X, and even if the Moto X did not exist, there are still things about the Nexus 5 that I just don’t like, and that are inferior to other devices on the market. It’s not a battle. I’m not trying to convince you on the virtues of the Moto X, and you certainly won’t convince me that the Nexus 5 is superior. Again, my point was to point out that your statement was erroneous.

          11. Moto x has best features. My x got kit kat first than my 2012 nexus 7. X8 computing system rules.

          12. Screen image retention/burn in from the nature of AMOLED technology is a huge deal breaker for the X. You WILL have it to some degree even if you don’t want to admit it.

          13. I have had ZERO problems with my Moto X’ screen. I have, however, appreciated, the saved battery life from the nature of AMOLED technology and Active Display. THAT is what I must admit. Hello Moto.

          14. You will sooner or later, there’s no avoiding it. Also battery life is pretty much a wash unless you go out of your way to blacken everything. Whites use significantly more power on AMOLED then LCD but significantly less with blacks. AMOLED will be great if they can work out the issues with image retention.

          15. Doubt it.

          16. Moto x forever

          17. Moto x is the best device of 2013. The king has returned :-) hello moto

          18. I don’t think I’ll be ditching my N5, but my wife has the Moto X and there are some features that I wish I had (lockscreen unlock feature, touchless controls)

  2. What do you mean by $70 off with their “current” promotion?

    1. *NEXT promotion. Fixed.

  3. Mr Chavez, I cant see anywhere if this includes the CDMA version…. can you confirm?

    1. Motorola’s wording says specifically “ANY Moto X”, so we’re hoping it’s more than just the GSM model. Reaching out for clarification.

    2. Good news! Moto X Developer Edition and CDMA models are included :)

  4. wasn’t their other online discount special sale thingy a bust? I guess some companies like to repeat the same mistake again and again.

  5. Coming soon: 404’d motomaker.com.

  6. just waiting for when they have a sale where they give these things out for free off contract.

    1. That will be Black Friday, after the Moto X 2 is already out.

    2. For free, off contract? lol really.

  7. How did I just build a moto x for $124.99 including a wood back & bumper case?
    Here at this link –

    1. Because it’s currently only $49.99 ON CONTRACT with VERIZON. The sale will be for off contract versions, and open for all carrier models.

  8. I have to wonder why Motorola would offer these promotions every couple weeks now. It’s almost as if they’re trying to get rid of their Moto X stocks in preparation for a new model… Hmm.

  9. I have a code I am no longer going to use. DM @Brzfld
