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

    Still too expensive

    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.

  • http://www.facebook.com/tsteege Terry Steege

    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.

    • http://www.facebook.com/tsteege Terry Steege

      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.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_VNMZ67HA6QFEXTW5OXVSB4KDRM BillyBoy

    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://twitter.com/DrewMind Andrew Davis

      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.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=720960812 Joel ‘Maximus’ Griffin Dodd

    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.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jasonsholmes Jason Holmes

    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.

    • http://www.facebook.com/jasonsholmes Jason Holmes

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

      • http://twitter.com/ALIASgirl23 ALIAS girl

        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.

        • http://www.facebook.com/jasonsholmes Jason Holmes

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

  • http://twitter.com/ALIASgirl23 ALIAS girl

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

  • Skii1981

    has anyone been billed for their order?? Mine says shipped…but CC doesnt reflect the cost…

    • 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?

      • http://www.facebook.com/jasonsholmes Jason Holmes

        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.

      mine says shipped but my cc has not been charged yet, odd considering it should be here tomm.

  • 3rdjones

    I am getting stuck after I pick the address to ship to it ask for Coupon or Promo code. I put mine in and it says that the cc card I am using doesnt match my numbers. I am curious why it said this when I didnt enter it through my CC yet. I am using my amazon login to pay for it. Hmmm???

      Coupon has been dead for like 3 days now.

    mine says shipped online now … did anyone get a tracking number? mine shipped the 24th but I don’t see any tracking number

    • cloudiehead

      mine says shipped on one page, and then blank on another. no tracking info. my credit card is still pending. I am still crossing my fingers for the discount.

    • Nick365

      Same here. Says shipped on the 24th. Still no tracking number. Based on the estimated delivery date its more like 3-4 day shipping not the 2 day I selected.

  • Anonymous

    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.

  • http://justinpaine.com xxdesmus

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

  • Mii

    Seems the code works , but only for accessories now :(

  • http://www.facebook.com/ahbonte76 Alex Bonte

    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.

  • http://www.facebook.com/ahbonte76 Alex Bonte

    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!!!!

    Code didn’t work for me. I used the code provided on the site and registered for a new one. It’s the same code. If anyone had luck please post.

    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?

    Does anyone know if this will have Swype keyboard? Didn’t even think about that, was in a hurry to get in on the $599 deal. Can’t live without Swype!

  • 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.
