Motorola Details New 2-Day $150-off Moto X Deal, No Rush This Time Thanks to Promo Code

moto x deal

After yesterday’s Cyber Monday fiasco, Motorola has unveiled their new plan to award many of you with a Moto X for $150 off the full retail price. Instead of dealing with “rushed checkouts” and a flood of traffic to their site all at once, Motorola has decided to hand out coupon codes that can be redeemed for the $150-off promo price within a week. In other words, on either Wednesday (December 4, tomorrow) or next Monday (December 9), you’ll have the chance to register for a coupon code that can later be redeemed for a custom made Moto X through MotoMaker for the discounted Cyber Monday price. 

This is how it will all go down according to Motorola:

  • Go to motorola.com/holiday2daysale and register for the promotion starting at noon EST on the two sale days. You will know right away if quantities are still available.
  • Once registered, you will be emailed a promo code within a few hours. This code is active for one week.
  • Go to Moto Maker and design your phone within the one week window (take your time and have fun!).
  • At checkout, enter your one-time promo code to receive $150 off the no-contract price in the shopping cart. (Your code only works once and for one phone.)
  • Submit your order to get rocking with your custom Moto X in time for the holidays. Moto Maker will provide an estimated delivery date while you design your product and again at checkout. You will also receive an email when we start assembling your device as well as when it ships.*
  • If you have other questions, visit their FAQ.

This move should certainly alleviate the strain on their site, but should also give you plenty of time to design the perfect Moto X. So again, you head to their site at noon EST (9AM Pacific) on the two promo days (December 4 and 9), register for the deal, and then wait for your special code to arrive. Once you have your code, you will be given a week to use it.

Also, use the code “THANKS’ to save 30% off on accessories.

All make sense?

  • cheezeboy

    Now we wait…

  • http://www.baldypal.com/ BaldyPal

    Obviously code is sent via email but do we think they can only be used by that person? Could one give away a promo code or sale it.

    • Raven

      Thanks! I used the link from your post when the sale link wasn’t updated right away. Might have missed it otherwise.

  • Gr8Ray

    Their site is totally hosed right now.

    • Raven

      I didn’t have any problem registering for my code.

      • Gr8Ray

        I was just trying to access my device portal on their site, and it was throwing all kinds of errors. Seems to be working fine now.

  • Scott Smith

    I see nothing… where do I register?

  • gboy515duo

    fingers crossed! see y’all in a few hours!

  • gboy515duo

    I hope i got mine….

  • A.Miller

  • DanF

  • goosegoose

    Everyone is so quiet today compared to last time
    I think we’re just scared of the possibility of another 12h day….

    • mrsastrocat

      Dont worry its the calm before the storm….

  • Todd

    15mins!

  • 1MPR0BUS

    Has anyone’s order from Monday shipped yet? I ordered a VZW Dev Edition and I know some people said they received their phone before they received a shipping update but I have had no status update on the order since Monday. I know on the website it said possible 7 days to ship but I would at least expect some kind of status update. Maybe I’m just used to Newegg and Amazon shipping my stuff immediately.

    • mrsastrocat

      Mine has not shipped. i’m not expecting it to till at least a couple of days after these festivities…

    • cheezeboy

      Friends’ shipped today.

    • Justin

      If you sign up for FedEx delivery manager (free), you will get an email when fedex picks up the package from TX. You’ll get the email from fedex a day before moto updates the status.

      • 1MPR0BUS

        Will do man thanks for the advice.

    • droidrazredge

      :( I’m in the same boat as you. Mine has not been shipped yet and no status change. I’m starting to wonder if mine was one of the ones that were cancelled like all the others. Would Motorola email you with a second email if your order was cancelled ?

      • 1MPR0BUS

        Mine apparently shipped on the 4th but Motorola didn’t update the page until today. The other guy who suggested signing up for the FedEx Delivery manager was right. As soon as i signed up they told me the phone was already picked up and on its way which turned out to be a day and a half sooner than motorola updated their tracking info.

        • droidrazredge

          Mine informed me of apparently being shipped on the 4th too, I did not check the Motorola website so I don’t know if the update was their yesterday. Looks like everyone’s that did not ship on the 2nd was shipped yesterday. Mine is still in Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas though,A quick question about FedEx. I ordered some cases and covers for the Moto X last night. I did the 2-day shipping, so if they process the order in the early morning do I have a chance that I will receive it Friday ? or do they also ship on weekends ?

  • mrsastrocat

    here we go again!

    • Todd

      my thoughts exactly

    • Raven

      Well, that was a quick 8 minutes. I supposedly got one. Now to impatiently wait for the email. I wish they would send one confirmation email right away, and then stagger the coupon emails to prevent crushing their site.

  • DanF

    I hope it tells you whether or not your getting a code right away so i don’t obsessively check my email all day

    • mrsastrocat

      Oh what makes you think they will let you off that easy?? it says you’ll be notified within a couple of hours if you got a code…..

      Classy huh?

  • Todd

    back for another round!

  • Silver Veloz

    Pretty much explains how to get the Moto X with the discounts. Now, a comment about the accessories. I’ve been trying to get the Power and the Nagivation Dock for Moto X since the last sale. They have always been out of stock (and still are). What to do?

  • Randy

    Anyone know of any spec comparisons on the Moto X and Galaxy Nexus. Just want to see the difference.
