Motorola Giving Away Free Moto Hint With Off-Contract Purchase Of Moto X

April 8, 2015 - Written By John Anon

Motorola have not been shy about offering deals as of late. It was only last week that the company decided to offer $140 off of any Moto X (second generation) device purchased off-contract. In fact, it was April Fool’s Day when the promotion launched. In spite of this not being an April Fool’s joke, this was one of those “one day only” sales. Not to mention, last month Motorola were also giving away a free Moto E with purchases of the Moto X. Well, Motorola have announced a different deal today for those who might be thinking about picking up a Moto X but did not grab one during those previous deals.

In today’s announced deal, anyone who purchases a Moto X will also be able to grab a Moto Hint for free. For those unfamiliar with Moto hint, the device launched back in September of last year and essentially, is a Bluetooth headset. However, it is not your typical Bluetooth headset and instead comes with a bunch of additional ‘smart’ features. For instance, when connected to the Moto X, any questions asked using the “OK Moto” will result in the answers being streamed to the Moto Hint. The idea is a more personal approach so that only you can hear. Such features do not come cheap though and when Moto Hint was first unveiled, it came with a large $150 price tag. As such, the option to get a free Moto Hint is not a bad deal, if you were thinking or planning on picking up a Moto X anyway.

To put the deal further into perspective, the Moto Hint when bundled together via the likes of AT&T only slashes $50 off of the joint price. Meaning you still end up paying an additional $100 on top of the full price of the Moto X. So either way, this is a nice freebie. In terms of the deal, you must be buying a full priced Moto X which is off-contract. This means you are looking at a minimum of $499 for the two. Those who frequent the Moto Maker website often, will know that the Moto X is actually available on Republic Wireless for $399.99. However, it seems this option is not part of the current deal.
