If you have not already noticed, today is April 1st. Most people will not actually have to even check a calendar for the date today, thanks to the influx of April fools announcements and jokes that have no doubt been flooding your inboxes and news feeds. The big manufacturers have not been exempt from making their joke announcements either. For instance, Motorola sent out an announcement confirming the launch of their selfie sticks. In spite of this being a play on the popular concept of selfies, Motorola went to great lengths to carry the joke through, even putting together a rather interesting promotional video on how their selfie sticks are created.
Well, that may have been just a joke, but not all today’s news is a joke. In fact, on the Motorola site dedicated to the selfie stick, there is a banner which does clearly state that for one day only you can save $140 off of an off-contract Motorola Moto X smartphone. This is a one day sale and is the real deal. When you go through to the Moto Maker site and start putting your device together and after choosing the options and adding to your cart, the discount does appear before checking out. It is worth noting that the price does not reflect the discount until the it has been firmly placed in your cart, so do not worry about the price until you are checking out.
In term of the discount, it is $140 off the straight off-contract price, which is set at $499.99. This means you can pick up the standard off-contract version for $359.99. Those who have been to the Moto Maker site before will know that the Moto X is available on Republic Wireless at the cheaper $399.99 price. Unfortunately, you cannot secure the full discount off of this price. However, if you do opt for the Republic Wireless version then the price does also drop down to $359.99. Meaning this is the baseline price for the sale, regardless of which off-contract option you go for. If you are interesting in taking advantage of the one day sale price hit the source link below.
