Save $100 on a Motorola XOOM with this New Coupon Code (Updated)

Update:  Coupon code no longer works.

Since we already blew up one of Motorola’s coupon codes the other day and saved tons of you $200 on your XOOM purchase we were trying to keep this other code a little on the DL to be nice to our friends at the big “M.”  Well, a few other sites appear to have caught wind of it and we wouldn’t want our readers to miss out on anything, so here we go.  If anyone is interested in saving $100 on a brand new $799 Moto XOOM without having to sign up for a contract, use the coupon code below.  And please, if this thing dies, don’t go pissing at Moto as there is a chance that this is secret coupon code.  They were already gracious enough to honor all of those 25% off  codes.  

Coupon code:  motoxoom

Visit the Motorola store and plug that into the coupon code box.

Tip:  The good news is, we’re hearing from readers who have had luck talking Best Buy into price matching for $699.  So if you don’t feel like waiting for the extra slow 2-day shipping, heading into a BBY might be worth your time.

    Reading these post of people arguing over which tablet is better than the other is some funny entertainment, certainly has kill about 30+min of my work day (111 comments.)

    People are going to buy what they want to buy, mostly based on Hype. You can sell dog sh*t to a person if you present it right. The iPad has a lot of hype, mainly because its a Apple product, and so many people think you are nobody unless you own a overpriced device from Apple. Its not Apples responsibility to make flash work with their products, ask Adobe why they haven’t released iPad/iPhone compatible flash. When Android first released, it didnt have Flash either. Yes, the iOS has been around for a while, and still has no flash, but thats not Apples fault completely. And those that say NEVER (granted all these comments were 6mon ago) you can’t say NEVER when you don’t have the facts.

    Point is, buy what you want. Don’t sit there and degrade one product because you like the other one better. Just f*ing buy it already.

    (and no I don’t have an iPad1/2, I actually have an Acer Iconia)

    What’s with these ****ing coupons that only last a few hours? What is Moto doing??

    • DBK

      It’s not Moto. When these codes get out, the site gets flooded because everybody hops on it at the same time. They can only handle so much traffic and sell so many at the discounted price. Plus, this was an employee discount code, so they had to stop it as soon as they realized that more than just employees were using it. It sucks, but until people can show some restraint and not act like it’s Black Friday every time we get a discount code, then maybe they would last longer.

    Attention Mr. Blowjobs and Google Overlords:

    This is what a tablet should be:

    Any idea if Best Buy will retroactively apply the discount?

  • Micky

    oh also i think google voice is most like ready for release but waiting for moto to upgrade the xoom to 4g so it puts less stress on the 3g network compared to 4g which is not a congested as 3g i can not wait for 4g upgrade on my xoom its gonna be worth every penny i spent on it :) screw wifi only version by getting the more expansive version im going to save $40.00 a month on verzion’s network ;)

  • Micky

    honestly the reason why google is delayed on the xoom right now is because verizon dosent want people to cancel their cell phone services and switch to google voice for $50.00 unlimited data plan guess what do you on the xoom when google voice does come out .
    1)unlimited data
    2)free navigation
    3)unlimited minutes
    4)unlimited text messaging
    5)most important feature the tablet exprience . so the xoom is worth the price point when google voice does come out its going to be huge game changer for the xoom and verizon
    What you think thats wrong then switch to ipad 2 and keep staring at your ipad 2 gorgeous screen and keep telling your girlfriend how light it is when you are holding it .

  • reefdweller

  • datboijon

    i thought that moto changed the other code (ocnnsb25) to only work for accessories i tried using it last night to order a case and it said the code was not valid. did they cut the coupon all together. the original post here said it was good through march 13th or 15th

    I suggest not buying from MOTOROLA Store….I bought my xoom on launch day from them…without the coupon code (was too late) and as of today it still has not shipped! After numerous phone calls and a lot of ranting they claim it will be out by end of day but they are so backed up trying to process orders…..I call BS! Yet another FAIL by Motorola!

    • Nick365

      Agreed. I ordered one on 2/24 with the 25% discount and it has not shipped yet.

    • Anonymous

      that’s complete BS, you know they aren’t “backed up” … nobody is buying it.

  • http://thisisjohncoffey.com GRAND MASTER SEN$Ei {{-_-}}™

    Idea for Verizon and/or Motorola (since I know they read this site): When 4G gets activated, give all Verizon customers with Android 4G phones a discount on the XOOM. {{-_-}}

  • xoomer16

    wow, I have to say – all the xoom bashers. Just don’t buy one already ok? No one if forcing you.
    Ipad:
    flash… NEVER
    SD card… NEVER
    4G… NEVER

    Whatever, if you don’t want one – but something else.

  • Silksmooth

    700 is still outrageously prices for a tablet. Especially one where, as the other commenter pointed out, everything seems to be pending.

  • Chris Nimon
  • plvaulter06

    Even with this code, i cannot justify paying $70 more than the 16gig iPad 2 3G.

    I am an Android fan at heart, but I just won’t fork out the buck to support companies (Moto, Verizon) putting out half way done tablets.

    Xoom:
    Flash… pending
    SD card… pending
    USB host… pending
    Google Voice… pending
    Google Docs App… pending
    smooth h264… pending
    skype… pending
    4g… pending

    Get it right the first time guys! I’m not even an apple fan but at least i know if i buy any apple product there will be nothing “pending.”

    • XOomletdown

      I agree with plvaulter06… I was so set on the xoom and excited to get it but the delays, pending features, and outrageous price were a huge let down for me. So Im going with the wifi only 16 gb ipad 2 and unfortunately the exact same thing is happening with the thunderbolt (and will probably happen with bionic even more so). I hate to say it but if android is always going to be held hostage by incompetent companies like samsung and motorola…. I might end with an iphone 5. Its a sad thing after 2 years of hardcore android loyalty.

      • http://thisisjohncoffey.com GRAND MASTER SEN$Ei {{-_-}}™

        Get real. Even without all those extra features, the XOOM still trumps the iPad 2. {{-_-}}

        • Anonymous

          what? flash, memory card support, GV, and 4G are the standout reasons one would pick Xoom over i*ad2. That’s why I and many others picked the DX over the i*one4 (4G notwithstanding).

          Without them, and with the higher price, I have to be fair and give it to the fruit despite my desire for multitasking and patience for Android UI lags.

      • Maui6180

        For over 2 months before the Xoom release, I contacted Motorola about their upcoming pricing. Now I am nobody, except I have been in marketing for 20 years. I tried to convince them that although their product has a short-term marketable advantage, they were going up against Goliath and there primary objective should to gain some market share and get the device into he hands of users-their best sales team. Well, the rest is history, they should take every one of the marketing group and show them the door. Unless something compelling happens, I will likely purchase an iPad2 on Thursday.

    • http://thisisjohncoffey.com GRAND MASTER SEN$Ei {{-_-}}™

      And by the time all this finally gets there, XOOM 2 will be coming out.

      I think I’ll wait to see what HTC’s cooking up. {{-_-}}

    • Djspikezz

      Hey dumb stupid idiot tard (no bad words but imagine),

      It’s all pending cause Motorola wanted it released before the programs were ready. The point is Xoom is capable of all the “Pending” while Ipad 2 that isn’t even out yet won’t be… and by then… there will be even more tablets out that will kick IPAD in the maxi pad.

    • http://jeff-mastry.myopenid.com/ Jeff

        since you said custom ROM you are implying rooting your Android phone. With a jailbroken iPad you can have flash, custom launchers and widgets. Xoom doesn’t have 1080p now or ever either.

        • http://jeff-mastry.myopenid.com/ Jeff

          Apple has never sanctioned the ipad jail break (as far as I know). Moto intentionally made the Xoom unlockable with a path for getting back to a factory locked state. As for 1080p, I should have said 1080p playback. My bad.

            Yes you did. I now believe that having removable storage is the #1 selling point for any mobile device. Which explains why the iPhone without removable storage is the best selling smartphone in the history of mankind.

          • Eric

            What don’t you understand? I never said it was a selling point only that 16gb is not enough space in todays world. At least your coming to your sences a little bit about me schooling you. Maybe if you payed attention to detail(we were discussing the ipad not iphone) more instead of trying to be a smartass(which you sux at) you might win one. Maybe next time! :)

        Maybe if they set the price around $199.99. Even then sales will be pathetic. There is no real tablet market. There is an iPad market and people are confusing that with a tablet market. Motorola should call Microsoft and ask how the Zune worked out. This is the same logic that makes rich people start a new professional football league every few years. They assume since people love NFL they must love professional football. Sorry but it doesn’t always work that way.

        • Anonymous

          Really, no market? Consumers are moving to the cloud and businesses are looking for cheap mobile devices that run Citrix/VMware for access to work resources. These are two markets for tablets. A good portion of iPad sales to businesses are for Citrix/VMware who don’t really care about iOS. They could care less if it is iOS or Android, as long as it works, portable and inexpensive.
          Saying it wouldn’t sell at $200 however just makes you sound troll-ish, so I assume I wasted my reply.

          • http://twitter.com/jbernard703 Jeff Bernard

            I am generalizing when i say NO market. There is some market of course. Even the biggest flops of all time sold to some people. Android has already given up on the enterprise markets. Apple and RIM is already dominating that sector and enterprise is usually very, very slow to adopt change.
