Tip: Save 25% OFF a $799 Motorola XOOM Without a Contract (That’s $200) (Updated)

Update:  The coupon code has been fixed at Motorola’s site since it was allowing people to order discounted XOOMs when it should have just been discounting accessories.  The good news is that Motorola reached out to us to confirm that they will honor all orders placed before the coupon code was pulled.  A ton of you received one heck of a deal.  Might want to tip your glass to Moto tonight.

_________________________________

This might be the deal of the century right here people.  If you want to pick up a Motorola XOOM and pay just $600 for the non-contract version (the $799 version) then follow these steps immediately.  This is not a scam, not a joke, but is absolutely the real deal.  And if you just purchased one from Best Buy or Verizon, you may want to consider returning it to save yourself a couple hundred bucks.

So how is this possible?  With the Chad OchoCinco News Network (OCNN) 25% off coupon code of course.  If you remember during the Super Bowl, OCNN was giving away 25% off coupon codes for the Motorola store and they aren’t expiring until March 15th.  And guess what?  You can use them on a XOOM.

Coupon code is:  OCNNSB25

MOTOROLA STORE

Apply that code at checkout and you are golden.  I do want to point out that the device is showing currently as “unavailable”, so you’ll want to continue to watch it hoping that they release more.  Oh, and you can apply this to your accessories as well.

If for some reason that code is no longer working, try registering at this site for a new one.

All credit goes out to XDA member Droid.Modr for this one!

  • Was going to try this on the WiFi-only Xoom until I say the update!

    fedex says mine will be here in the morning … so tempted to call out sick from work so I can play with it all day

    I called customer service yesterday – was polite, but firm and told them that I ordered it a week ago and have not received a confirmation number and that I needed it by Friday, as I wanted to take it on vacation. Basically, I got the same runaround. Asked to speak to a manager. After 10 minutes the rep came back and said that I could wait longer – she apologized and offered to refund my one day shipping charge and said it would probably ship Friday but she could do no better. Defeated, I thanked her and resigned myself to getting it when I return. I still have not received a shipping confirmation but I went to the Fedex website and lo and behold, it is shipping today, priority overnight with estimated delivery by 10:30 AM tomorrow! I shall now give you all a provisional “Woot!”

    • You’re awesome. After reading yours I did the same thing and now my shipping’s refunded and it’s due by 10:30am tomorrow… Woot-Woot!

      Didn’t bother saying anything about needing it tomorrow, just inquired where was it after ordering it last Thursday night and paying for overnight shipping. She offered to refund it and ship it out tomorrow morning. About a minute later it was in Fedex’s system using the Track by Reference technique.

  • Mine has been shipped and scheduled to be delivered on Friday. I can’t wait!!

  • Waiting for mine right now, on the FedEx truck due before 10:30am PST. Paid $652 to CA.

  • Late last night I received my tracking number. Checked with FedEx and it is scheduled to arrive tomorrow. I also called about the “Free” gel cover I could not order, and the Motorola rep is sending it out to me for free.

    • Yeah, I just got it. Sweet, thanks to Droid-Life and Moto. Now play-time!!!

  • Jamsil0877

    Yes! It shipped tracking info and all! Sucks standard shipping though:(

    • Jamsil0877

      What’s weird though, is that the $662 dollar transaction no longer appears in my checking account, and as of Monday my balance is $662 higher? They might have botched this and giving it free! Anyone else experience the same thing?

      • Chris C

        The transaction has disappeared from my account as well. My account looks like I never paid for it. However I got a tracking number today and Fedex is scheduled to bring it Monday. I’ll take free … the transaction has been gone for almost 3 days now.

  • I ordered 6:55 EST on Thursday night (Feb 24th) with overnight shipping and still have no tracking/shipment info.

  • Ninjalex76

    Has anyone actually RECEIVED their Xoom after getting the deal? I have not, and as far as I know it hasn’t even shipped yet.

  • Hey you can check on the fedex site if you got 1 or 2 day shipping or the ups site if you got standard shipping to see if they are planning to ship it today. I checked and its anticipated to ship today and arrive Thursday. Instructions below from XDA member stirCwazy
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=11752641&postcount=179

    • You’re the man, Jason!! Mine is scheduled for Thursday. Funny, because I just spent an hour on the phone with Moto and Amazon who were both pointing the finger at each other.. quite frustrating, I must say. But, it’s all good now.

      The directions over at XDA weren’t quite clear, though. You have to enter the “Seller’s Order Number” on the FedEx website. Good Luck.

  • Just got off the phone with Moto Customer support.

    CSR told me that due to the problem with the coupons there were ‘IT’ problems and they were trying to sort them out.Told me he didn’t know when they were going to ship despite being given a window of 28th-1st for delivery. Seems that we’re at the 1st and mine has yet to even ship.

    I asked if they were going to refund the $15 I paid for 1-day shipping, he said no.

    So the word from Moto is basically “STFU, you’ll get it when we decide to ship it regardless of what shipping you paid for.”

    Classy.

    • DN

      One day shipping apparently means it will ship one day.

  • Someone on XDA posted they got their tracking number at 8pm PST. Still haven’t gotten mine yet.

  • BILLYTHEKID

    still nothing here. I’m still skeptical. Some people reported a bank withdrawal immediately…not me.

    • They’re using debit cards and the preauthorization always withdraws all the money.

      • I used debit card and it was showing as pending until this morning. Now the pend has been removed and the money has been put back in my account. I still don’t have a tracking number andI haven’t received any emails from Motorola since the original order confirmation. I am even more skeptical now.

        • Alot of people on XDA have received their tracking numbers. Seems like Motorola is just taking its sweet time shipping these out.

  • Still no tracking number and my account shows the charge as “pending”. I am starting to get discouraged.

  • Still no tracking number and my account shows the charge as “pending”. I am starting to get discouraged.

    • Jamsil0877

      Mine says shipped as well, I payed with my debit card and funds were taken out immediately.The downer is that the arrival date is between 3/2-3/7 not the two days as advertised?

      • You had to select 2 day shipping at checkout. The default option was standard shipping.

        • Jamsil0877

          Really! Now that I think about you’re probably right, I was in such a hurry to get my order off I missed that. Thanks for the info. It’s killing waiting for this thing, I’m almost tempted to pick one up at BB and then returning it when my order arrives.

    What a great deal – this discount is the only reason I bought one of these. Totally the biggest impulse buy I’ve made in years.

  • damn the world …if only I had an extra $600 laying around.

  • Mii

    Seems the code works , but only for accessories now 🙁

  • Ditto.

  • ShopDroid

    Brilliant marketing – since they jacked up the price to 800+, 600 seems like “deal of the century”. I bet this code sold more xooms than all the retail outlet did on the same day. Mark my word, 600 will be regular price by the time ipad2 comes out.

  • Dude somebody totally lost their job over this. lol

  • Mehoff88

    This is BULLSHIT!!! I bought one for 650$ and my debit card limit wasnt high enough so i had to call the bank to increase it and now the code doesnt work!!!!!! FML!!!!

    Registering gives you the same code….looks like this offer is done and gone for the Xoom.

  • Ok, I thought I was going to wait for a wifi version, but couldn’t resist. I called Motorola and asked about the coupon from last night’s mess, and the rep explained it and said “I can give you a 10% discount on the Xoom and any accessories, but that’s the best I can do. I jumped on it, I know it’s not 25% but hey it’s better than nothing. Call Moto see if you have any luck!

    I want the Xoom but when do you guys think (and whoich) is the first quad core tablet?

  • nacho220

    Nothing new that anyone hasn’t already shared. I called Motorola sales and they denied that anyone that thinks they got a discount will be getting one. etc etc. Hopefully Kellex can get some real scoop on this and get something a little more official…since it seems like every Motorola rep (at least from what other comments are saying) has a different story.

      Check out this thread at XDA. The orders are going through as several people have called and confirmed.

      One guy even asked if they could add the gel case to his order, and they told him that they could, but he would not be able to get the 25% discount because they would have to enter the order again.

    • It’s dead, we have to wait and see when Motorola is going to pull their head out of their a– and release the wifi version.

  • Anonymous

    Oh Moto, can’t you see how many of us want a Xoom at a reasonable price. I would be on my Xoom right now instead of my poor droidx.

  • Jmart8684

    I am interested to see how many people actually used this code. I got it mine in time, so I’m happy. Hopefully, if a large amount of people did use it, Moto may consider releasing a WiFi only version sooner, and a Google Experience (Vanilla Android, no blur, easy bootloader unlock) phone yearly.

    • Yeah right, they’ll probably wait longer on the WiFi version just to recoup the losses from tonight.

      • DBK

        Unfortunately, that’s most likely what’s going to happen. It’s almost like Moto refuses to learn……

        • I think so too, I hate to say it, but if they want to compete with apple, they need to think this through better. If not this thing is going to flop like the galaxy tab.

          • DBK

            Agreed. That seems to be the direction they are headed in. Too bad, because it really is one beautiful device. If only they would realize that by reducing the price a little it would sell a lot more than at the price it is selling for now and they would easily make up the difference and still meet their profit expectations. I guess “getting rich quick” trumps all.

  • Man I can’t get over how I could miss this! This is crazy but, I didn’t see this coupon post precisely because I was out checking out the Xoom at Verizon. I won’t be able to sleep tonite because of this!

  • I was right their, clicking order and boom. Chrome crash. Never again will I order anything in a beta version of Google Chrome again.

    • DBK

      Wow. I bet the sailor in you came out swinging.

      • It wanted to, but I was at work. Im sure it will tomorrow when I’m stuck shelling out nearly $900. Stupid 9.3% sales tax.

  • I bet Motorola will be thinking about lowering the price really really soon once they see how many tablets they sold on launch day because of the ridiculous price. Don’t worry guys that didn’t order it on time(like me) give it a couple of months, this thing will be down at least $100.

    • Anonymous

      Totally agree. Motorola, you should see how many units you sold at this $200 “discount” price and realize that $599 price tag is probably the the only way to dominate the market (to me, a lower price is much more effective marketing than giving a gold version to all Oscar nominees). Especially, it seems that iPad 2 doesn’t have a SD card slot nor a upgrade on the screen resolution!!!!

      • Yeah, I’d love to see the number of tablets that sold with this coupon, LOL! I bet motorola is going to s–t their pants!

  • DBK

    Congrats to the lucky bastards that were able to benefit from this. Guess I’m waiting for the WiFi-only version.

    I’m glad I bought mine when I did. They can’t cancel them since it was a mistake on their part.

    A few years ago, my brother bought a TV from Best Buy’s website after he saw a thread on a forum showing a mistake in their system. The TV was supposed to list for $1,499, but online it listed for $499. He snatched one up, and an hour later, the price was fixed. This was on a Sunday, so even though the transaction didn’t go through until Monday when the banks opened, they had to honor the deal and he got a 42″ Samsung LCD TV for $499. He sold the TV a week later on craigslist and payed his mortgage and car payment with it.

  • Still pissed, I was about 20 minutes late!! DAMN you Motorola, just put the WIFI only version out already, at least give us a release date!!

    • hkklife

      No reason to toast Moto for this being being so overpriced in the first place. Now, if they simultaneously announced a $200 permanent price drop for this model and also announced the release date soon for a $500 wi-fi model, then I’d be toasting them. Until then, get ready for the Xoom to flop about as hard as the Galaxy Tab.

Only thing is I was not able to add the free gel case to the cart upon purchase, so I will just have to call tomorrow and get them throw that in as well =)

  • SoClose

    Promotion code was never meant to work on the XOOM, but they catagorized the XOOM as an accessory on their site not a “Phone” so code applied to it.

    They have since revoked the code.

    I had an order in when code worked, got an email receipt confirmation of my order. Then got another email half hour later saying my order had been canceled.

    When I called in they said order had been canceled due to it being “out of stock and order unable to be fullfilled”. Then when I called back a guy explained to me that code being applied was a mistake. Will be interesting to see if other folks do indeed get their cheep xoom.

    • Sdk_1052

      I also tried but the amazon site said code not recognîzed. Plus I just bought the xoom at verizon and they said the xoom has a$70 restocking fee. So looks like I am sticking with my original purchase.

      No offense but I think you’re lying. Usually one person pops up on a forum and makes a bogus claim with no one else experiencing the same thing to support him.

    Ok i am seriously debating if i should get this. I just need to know if this will work in the next few days to see if i have the money for one. I know the coupon says valid till 3-15-2011, but i dont know if moto will change the xoom from being eligible to use it. Do you guys think i will be able to use that coupon code in a few days?

      Damn its not working any more. I even put down my email for a new one, buts its the same code anyways. Sigh and i was actually going to get it at that price. Thanks to tax returns. If it starts to work again let me know…

      absolutely not. It’s already revoked.

        The coupon is already dead. Damn was going to grab one also.

    We’re sorry, but we didn’t recognize the promotional claim code or gift certificate/card code you entered. Perhaps you typed it incorrectly or you are trying to use a code that’s not valid for the items in your Shopping Cart?

  • Steve

    code no longer works for me. I tried to call Motorola and they said that the code is invalid and only works for accessories. anyone else? Tried removing the XOOM and leaving accessories. Same error, invalid code. Registered, got the same code, bummed out i missed this.

    No go for me. tried several times.

  • I have a strong feeling all those who ordered it already and got the coupon to work will be getting a refund and their order cancelled. Knowing Motorola they are willing to let this turn this into a PR nightmare before giving you a discounted tablet.

    • how did you get 15% off?

      • Rjh2196

        I called Moto 1-800 number and sat on hold for over 40 minutes. I then explained I was trying to order the Xoom and use a coupon code she said that they pulled the code for some reason (I knew why but played dumb) I asked her if there was any other promotional code she could help me out with and she said the best she could do is the 15% off, so I jumped on it. Worked for me…my advice though is being polite goes a long way!

        No it doesn’t work for ANYONE. This is one person in twenty that said they got it. It still doesn’t work. Also it’s not working for accessories either. Just try yourself, it is not working for ANYTHING.

  • Anonymous

    easy come easy go. I saw this article go up right as it was published and went straight to the moto store. I had the xoom sitting in my cart and I was ready to pull the trigger. I even had permission from my wife! lol! I sat on it for nearly two hours, with bigtime remorse, and then went to finally buy it and the code was no longer valid! oh well.

  • Wow, there customer lines must be crammed! I just checked the time on my call and it just passed 33 minutes on hold. Fortunately I don’t use a lot of minutes, unfortunately I’m getting sick of the tape loop…

    • let me know what your result is im at over an hour on the phone and damn that loop is anoying

      • I just passed 45 minutes. Of course this was after calling Amazon customer service which was useless since they said I had to contact Motorola directly even though it was processed by Amazon’s checkout service.

      • Rjh2196

        I waited over a half hour but after “Natalie” said they pulled it from the system I asked if there was any other promotion she could help me with. She said the best she could do was 15% off. I asked her for the promo code because I had the order all set, just needed to hit the place order button and she said there was no code, she would have to do it.

    It appears this code is only good for accessories now.. bummer!

    I think they changed what the code does. I registered with Motorolo, received an email with the same code that had some fine print

    Coupon code for 25 percent off valid for Accessories for Mobile Devices at the Motorola Store from February 1, 2011, through March 15, 2011.

    Notice how it’s good for Accessories.

  • I got so screwed. I used the code, it said it was taking off 200 in my cart. I clicked the last button to complete the order and it literally removed it when processing the order. I didn’t even notice until I looked at the emailed receipt. Now I’m stuck on freakin hold waiting to get a sales rep to cancel the order (assuming they won’t honor the coupon). I took too much time trying to get the case to show up as free in the cart I guess.

    • Chris C

      so if your email has the discount you got the price then?

    So the questions still remain:

    The code was SUPPOSED to expire on March 5th, so if that was true, it was obviously their mistake. Now, are they going to honor the purchases that did successfully complete. I just want to know if I should be kicking myself or not.

    • Anonymous

      I doubt they will simply because if you look at the code restrictions, it says it’s only for accessories.

      • Anonymous

        I doubt they won’t, because they’d be refunding hundreds to thousands of orders. They’d be smart to bite the bullet and maybe wise up a little that $200 off can make the difference between a horrible launch or a successful one. They should take a page out of apple’s book and shoot for brand recognition. The more people adopting early, the more people who will at least contemplate getting this over the ipad2

    I dont know what is going on with the code, and why it is accepted for discount on the Motorola Xoom. Probably that was a system bug which, I suppose, has been fixed already.

  • added one to my plan, and then dropped some minutes off my plan. Now I have both the DroidX and the Xoom(3GB/month) for cheaper than I was paying before! Today was a good day!

  • Awesome… Got one coming overnight. Thanks DL and DM

      The case isn’t out yet :/

      I think getting the XOOM now is better than waiting for the cases to be made available, which by then Motorola will probably notice the oversight (the 25% is for accessories, not devices).

  • Awesome I just used this and it works!!! Total $667 inc tax and 1-day shipping!! Now this makes the Xoom very very attractively priced!!!

  • awesome

    shipping status changed to shipped but delivery date is still march 1-2 with 2 day shipping, hmm

    Huzzah! Code worked for me! $650 shipped to TX!

    Thanks so much for sharing this with the community. I was going to wait for the Wifi model, but at that price I’ll take the plunge now!

  • I just ordered one and I am so excited! I was going back and forth about spending $800 but this coupon made my mind up for me! $650 and it says it will be delivered by March 1-2. I can’t wait!!

    a tip to all people who bought a xoom before this and want to return:

    restocking fee is
    $70 at VZW and 15% at BB.
    If you purchased with most AMEX cards, they will likely refund you these restock fees. Cal customer service for amex after you have returned it and incurred the restock fees.
    g.l.

    • Best Buy no longer has restocking fees.

      • Anonymous

        did not know this. they charged my 15% when i returned my galaxy tab. (BB in west hollywood).
        i bought mine at vzw so def need to exercise this option

    • Parrotheadmjb

      How do you know? You sure?

      • Anonymous

        just called and verified. my amex card has return protection (depends on the benefits of each individual card, but most have it)
        they will cover restocking fees as long as claim is made within 90 days.
        amex # to find out: 800-225-3750

        • Parrotheadmjb

          Thank you, I bought mine over an hour ago from Motorola anyways..still cheaper after re-stocking fee. I bought one this morning at 9am with my amex, I’ll be returning it and filing a restocking claim whenever I get my other one in the mail 😀

    • Gage006

      BB doesn’t have restocking fees anymore. 14 days to return, no restocking.

  • I don’t think my order will ship, but at that price I had to try! This sounds like a coupon error.

  • Just ordered mine too. Went through just fine. $659 to Seattle. Was gonna wait for the WIFI version but couldn’t pass this up.

    Used the Free 2-Day Shipping but still got a delivery date of Mar 1, 2011 – Mar 2, 2011.

    Oh well.

  • Anonymous

    Thank you droid-life. I just bought one. You are God.

  • Today is a good day. Picked up the Xoom for $789 @Costco. Plan on keeping it for as long of the 90 day return policy as I need. Although I could not convince the sales reps there to let me buy it without putting me on the month to month plan @$20/mo + $35 activation fee. They say I can cancel the data plan within 3 days to avoid getting stuck with that $35 fee.

    Then came back to droid-life to find this article! I ordered via this deal on the Moto site using the ocho cinco code and got a confirmation email thanking me for the order so it looks to be availble again. Just FYI…ordered in Cali, dunno if locale is affecting the site’s availability?

  • I checked it all out and it works….and get this…if you buy it on their store site, they throw in a gel case for free as well!! (It discounts the Black Case only @ checkout). Since the coupon is usable until March 15th, I’m going to wait until the last day – just in case they’ve already fix some bugs and added the currently missing software and updates by then. Awesome find…thanks to Kellex, Droid.Modr, and DL for this incredible discovery!! 🙂

    • FortitudineVincimus

      agreed

      cheaper and.. faster, more cores, more memory, etc.. I love this deal, SO tempted, but I think I am just going to hold out as to much good stuff is coming

      • With that mindset, you’ll be waiting FOREVER. Literally forever. By the way, more cores and more memory = more expensive. Common sense.

        • FortitudineVincimus

          wrong.. I wont wait forever. PERIOD.

          but I will wait until some of the stuff just announced weeks ago comes out. hard to want to bite on this when we know what is coming. this one is the first legit Droid tablet, I can wait.. I waited 1 year for my first Droid until the hubub died down and I will wait for my NE2 before I get into a new one. I have patience.

          With that mindset, you will but everything that comes out..

          what tard logic

          BTW, when I want it, cost wont matter to much for me. I will buy it.

          • Keep telling yourself that. Maybe you’ll understand when you grow up.

          • FortitudineVincimus

            man.. watching your posts.. your just on a tirade

            what could you possibly care what I buy and when and how much I pay. “Keep telling yourself that.” I dont need to keep telling myself anything, I already know how its going to go down.

          • You said you’ll wait for something better that is cheaper. That’s just stupid. New technology doesn’t come at a cheaper price. I don’t give a sh*t what you buy. I’m not buying a Xoom, I just wanted to point out your idiotic logic. Common sense seems to be lacking with todays youth.

          • FortitudineVincimus

            I am not todays “youth” – more tard assumptions. Just because I don’t use an icon that’s as nicey nice as yours, don’t make assumptions.

            Anyway, so your all hung up on the fact I said there will be cheaper tablets coming that are faster and have more functions? wow. Well, the coming tablets will be cheaper, just as the price on this will drop on this. Just as they dropped on LCD and Plasma TV’s and most laptops and Blue-ray platers. More function, less price. More technology, less price. Why you ask, Hank? costs start to come down with mass production and companies making parts at lessor prices as well as simple market share fighting for their piece helps costs drop as they reduce their margin to get customers to buy in. So yeah, I say there will be cheaper more powerful tablets coming. This one, everyone knows is overly pricey – the chief of Moto even had to defend the price – and is not even that awesome in hardware compared to what is coming. Stand by to eat your words in the coming year.

    Probably a stupid question, but one I haven’t seen the answer to anywhere. If you buy the unsubsidized Xoom, how do you get data without a data plan?

    • month to month

      you can add a no contract month-to-month plan at any time.

      • Matt

        But then why would anyone pay the unsubsidized cost? If you have to get a data plan anyway?

        • Silverhawk

          Because then you can ditch it when the new hotness comes out without having to pay an ETF.

    • Wifi or you pay month-to-month service.

    All the credit may go to XDA, but all of my thanks goes to you! I trust you’ll let us know when important things pop-up on other sites. Therefore, Droid Life is my one stop shop for all things Android. Once again, you’ve delivered big time! Also, I’ve never been much of a Chad Johnson fan, but in this case, I’ll make an exception.
