By now most of you have probably heard about the Motorola plant in Texas shutting down. After a good run Motorola is closing its doors in the South Western state, but they are leaving us with a parting gift. Rather, for anyone who is just looking to pick up a Moto X. Through the end of day today Motorola is enabling a discount on the purchase of a Moto X off contract or not, of up to $75 off when you use a particular coupon code through the Moto Maker website. Total cost may vary depending on how you customize your Moto X of course, for example the mock up purchase I made with the wood back costs an extra $25.
The gist of it though is that you can get the 16GB model for $50 off with the code and the 32GB model for $75 off, and on top of that Motorola is throwing in a couple of extras. You can add a free pair of SOL Republic Jax earbuds which value at $39.99, any color, and they’re adding a free Moto Skip also. The discount for the headphones is added at checkout so don’t be alarmed if the price calculator doesn’t go down right away. That’s a pretty good deal if you were wanting to get your hands on one of these and have been holding off. If you needed a good back up device or wanted to surprise someone with the nice gift of a new phone, there has never been any better time to grab a Moto X. Normal prices for the two different size models are $400 and $450, so the prices will end up being $350 and $375 respectively if you don’t add any extra costs, like the wood back.
Also interesting, is that the off contract version from Republic Wireless comes in at $424.99 for me with the wood back, which would have been $400 if I hadn’t added it to my kart,(and that’s before the coupon code)so basically the Republic Wireless one is cheaper for some reason. If you’re looking to pick one of these up you have until midnight tonight to do so, so be hasty and don’t sit on this decision too long. The coupon code for the discount is AFFMTX. Is anyone going to pick one up?
