Act Quick: $50 MOGA Gaming Controller and Modern Combat 4 For Free

PowerA, the sellers of the MOGA gaming controller for Android, are offering a special deal on a limited supply of controllers. For a very limited time, you can get a new $50 controller, coupled with Gameloft’s Modern Combat 4 for free. All you have to do is pay shipping and handling. Awesome, right? The controller attaches to your device, turning any phone into a portable gaming system.

Once on the site, add the controller to your cart, then apply the coupon code, “SecretSanta.” You better hurry!

Coupon Code: SecretSanta

Update:  We crashed the PowerA site for the MOGA, so they temporarily took it down. They are assuring customers that the deal is still on, though, and that they have extended it:

Wow! You must really like MOGA!
Don’t worry, the deal is still on.

We have temporarily taken down PowerA.com due to the overwhelming response.

Please check back as we will be back in business shortly!

Didn’t get your order in? Don’t worry, we will be extending the offer.

Update 2:  The site is back up! They have apparently extended the sale until tomorrow, assuming their stock lasts that long.

Cheers Nick!

    Ordered mine about an hour ago. Site was slow, but I was able to place my order all the way through. Can’t wait for it to arrive!! Good luck to those still trying.

    • EvanTheGamer

      Gotta drive to the valley in a bit..hope I’m able to place an order soon.

      • Joe Minarik

        • EvanTheGamer

          • Joe Minarik

          • steevka

            “Failed to load” on the Shipping Options screen for me; you’re not in the clear yet!

  • Doggie925

    Got through the to log in, then error message.

  • Damn:

    The promotion code “SECRETSANTA” could not be applied because the promotional item is no longer available.

    The promotion “SAVEME10 – 10% Off customer discount” could not be applied or is no longer available.

  • Lamar Sumner

    Got it in cart, applied code, just stuck at proceeding to checkout

    • jon

      me too

      • DroidBricker

        Yup, on 3 different pc’s and 3 different ISP’s.

        • Jon

          that’s power shopping. Reminds me of back when I used to bid on ebay.

          • Lamar Sumner

            now im at the account sign in screen 🙂

          • Amenemhat1

            same here…

          • Lamar Sumner

            Just got to the shipping options page $4.95 for ground shipping(7-10) business days…hopefully it will come quicker taking a road trip next week

          • EvanTheGamer

            Those were the days!

      • Jon

        now I’ve got to create an account!!! I feel like I’m on a 1200 baud modem.

        • EvanTheGamer

          Feels like 28.8. lol “Back in the day we used 56k modems, son, you guys have it way too easy!” “Oh, really? What’s a 56k modem?!” “Never mind about that, it was WAY before your time.”

      • Me 3 lol

    • Jon

      my god. each tab on the checkout is a pageload. Good grief!

      • EvanTheGamer

        Same here. Each section looks like it’s gonna take 30 minutes.

        Damnit. I really want to get one, but I gotta head out soon. Sh*t!


  • DroidBricker

    This is how it was trying to score a Touchpad!

  • Andrew Remmers

    Loading. Loading.

  • PhillipNorris

    Was trying to add coupon code and crashedl…trying again

    • PhillipNorris

      So I didn’t know what “FACKWORS” was so i copy/pasted google searched it. I then Pasted the same word into the coupon code field instead of SecretSanta. FACKWORS!

  • Tommy

    You’d think by now that anyone in e-commerce would know to prepare for traffic in response to spikes in demand.

  • da

    How do you know if your order went through? Do you receive a confirmation email? I haven’t received an email yet

    • Joe Minarik

      Placed my order about two hours ago and just received my e-mail confirmation.

  • cant get one cause load time is to long. Dang. I really wanted this 2 start rated fine piece of equipment.

  • Michael swaim


  • Tony Allen

    Site is down down.. wasn’t able to get one. Sucks ass. Oh well, I’ll keep using my Wii Classic Controller Pro..

  • DanWazz

    Damn, halfway done and the site crashes. Bumsky.

  • Justin W

    Website’s being extremely slow… This reminds me of trying to purchase my Nexus 4.

  • summit1986

    Forget it! I give up. I’m happy with my SixAxis and GameKlip anyway

    • EvanTheGamer

      For a mere $5 and a few free games…it’s worth the time that it may take to order one of these beasts. Even an hour.

      • That was my thought heh. $5 for an $8 game and a $50 controller. Win.

        • EvanTheGamer

          Hell yeah! I’m checking out now…just gotta get to Payment section then Confirm section, and then BAM!

    • mustbepbs

      Agreed. This controller doesn’t even look comfortable.

  • Jon

    uggg. can’t even get to my cart. Problem loading page

  • Nick S

    …aaannd site crashed.

    This webpage is not available.


  • So close, c’mon website….

  • Got one! Hurray! Site is really slow but worked eventually. $5 shipping not a bad deal.

  • just entered the code…. still loading….still loading….

  • anezarati

    does google run their distribution? haha

    • joe00111

      Game Over

      • Not for me. Got a “connection lost” an hour ago after I clicked Place Order. Just got an email from PowerA though saying my order was placed. Check your inbox!

        • Alberto Hamade

          Same here

        • Brandal Wagener

          It says my order was confirmed and I have my order number but I’m still waiting for my email… very impatiently

          • bigachx

            Same here! Whats worse is when I check order history in my account nothing shows up. And when I check my credit card transactions online nothing about this shows up! Now I’m nervous! lol

          • Joe

            Same here. Hoping my order was placed. Made sure to keep my order number just in case!

          • As long as you have the order number, the promotion will be honored. Stated on PowerA and MOGAanywhere twitter accts

          • They stated on their Twitter that as long as you have your order number, they will honor the promotion, so you dont necessarily need the confirm email

    • iScream4

      Site is back up, FYI

      • I’m having “Code Expired”… Am I the only one?

        • Chris Kelly

          Same here. Bummer.

          • Alexander H

            Looks like their reassurance runs dry…..had one in checkout before site went kaput.

    • ramifications

      They said it’s extended till tomorrow…but really…this is what I have been getting when trying to buy it:

      “The promotion code “SECRETSANTA” could not be applied because the promotion has expired.”


      • PuzzleShot

        While supplies last. People bought out said supplies before noon.

        • meetloaf13

          Not true, I got in right after it went back up and placed an order succesfully.

  • meetloaf13

    Stinks that you have to use their proprietary app-storishness to play games with this beast…what are the odds this is hacked so we can use it for our emulators?

  • go to the promotion code part, then it timed out…trying again

  • Captain_Doug

    Taking forever…

  • steveliv

    site is super slow but i’m working my way through the process…

  • DBK

    Aw yeah. Paying $5.30 for a $50 controller = priceless.

    Thanks Kellex for the heads up…..to bad you killed the site in the process.

    • EvanTheGamer

      Damnit! I’m so close yet so far away from checkout. Wish I had acted quicker!

      • DBK

        Keep the faith! You can do it!

        • EvanTheGamer

          Yes sir!

      • Tony Allen

        Don’t feel bad, I acted within 45 seconds and I still couldn’t/can’t get through.

        • EvanTheGamer

          Thanks for that. I’ll keep trying and trying. $5 is extremely difficult to pass up. And with a few free games to boot. Can’t pass that up!

        • Bob O’Daniel

          Ditto. I’m going to keep trying myself, though. For less than the price of the game, I get the game AND a controller. Sweet deal!

      • Jon

        excruciatingat best..hahaha. Now I’m getting page load errors on the checkout tabs. Nail biter. I don’t even know if when I get to the end, they’re going to say “sorry charlie. Sold out”

  • Franz

    Getting some Nexus 4 bad memories…

  • M C

    lol droid life posts this and their site goes down 🙁

  • Franz

    We killed it. 🙁

  • What is this post up for 5 seconds and then the site is already down? Seriously people don’t you have jobs???

    • Fattie McDoogles

      ….back at ya bub! lol

    • EvanTheGamer

      What if people work in front of computers, and that’s their job? lol

      • Like me? Haha. Made it all the way to check out and then place my order when it timed out. Looks like you can make it all the way and then it’ll just time out. Took screenshots though so maybe I can force them to let me get it later? Lame.

  • EvanTheGamer


    So damn slow right now. I want it! I want it now!

    Proceeding to checkout…

  • Steven Gonz

    site is down already.

  • Tim Swann

    site is taking forever!!!

  • It took me 20 minutes of loading and waiting to get the order placed! It went through thoough. Thanks Droid-Life!

  • Nice DDoS guys…

  • TomStieger

    Thanks Droid-Life. Their site is sooooooo SLOW though!

  • Got mine in. Should easily be worth $5 considering the game itself it $7… Great deal.

  • Tora Mulligan

    Site’s not wanting to load. Guess demand is too great?

  • 2001400ex

    Website not working for me.

  • Got one…$5 bucks is a steal. Gonna play GTA: Vice City with it!! Thanks DL!! THIS is why I follow you guys on Twitter. – and of course for your android coverage 🙂

    • 🙂

      • Just searched google for this thing and DL is the number 2 result. HAHAHA

  • lnimmer

    I feel like im trying to get a Olly Moss print… holy loading…

    • Mark

      I totally appreciate this comment because as soon as Mondo posted the link on Twitter, i sat there, added to cart while processing, it was sold out when i sat their and the site loaded the entire time. Sometimes, they have the worst process ever, and 9 times out of 10, the people who get them are just resellers. Its annoying for people like me who want the poster to hang on their wall /rant

      • lnimmer

        Oh I know… this isnt the first time ive tried… and Im not sure why I try anymore… its near impossible to snag one… and Im sure your right about resellers… after I got the no longer in stock I pulled up ebay to find them on there already… being bidded on for hundos and hundos… 🙁

    • lnimmer

      about an hour later and $4.95 out of my pocket but got it! 😛

  • meetloaf13

    WEBSITE DYING! Let me in!

    • Yeah, they are certainly crashing. It’s slow, but sort of working heh.

  • chey023

    awesome. now just need their site to load.

    • Josh White

      Site was very slow for me, but I just got my order to go through so good luck!

      • chey023

        It’s in my cart, soooooo close.

  • Sean Stone

    Site is getting slammed, but managed to get one, sweet, thanks for the heads up.

  • Their site is really slow right now, I wonder why?

  • Jeremiah Brockman

    $5.22 shipped!!!!

  • Dan

    I figured why not, worth $5 to try it out.

  • Don’t game on devices, but nice cheap gift. Thanks.

  • Ryan Powell

    Awesome. In for 1! Thanks DL

  • Damn, only valid in the US.

    • Glad I checked the comments before clicking.
