Reminder: Today is Day-1 of Motorola’s $150-off Moto X Deal, Don’t Forget to Register for a Code (Updated)

Screen Shot 2013-12-04 at 8.38.19 AM

Everyone ready for take two of Motorola’s Cyber Monday extravaganza bonanza? After a rocky go-of-things on Monday, Motorola is kickstarting their $150-off Moto X promo this morning at 9AM Pacific (12PM Eastern). Things are a bit different this time around though, as you can’t purchase a custom made MotoMaker Moto X until Motorola has given you a code. 

The new deal works like this – in order to get a code, Moto has setup a landing page for registration. Once you have registered, you wait for a special code to arrive. With code in hand, you have 1 week to use it during checkout on a Moto X through MotoMaker.com before it expires. The code will knock off $150 from the full retail price of the phone. By going with a code system, Motorola is hoping to alleviate some of the pressure that their site sustained on Monday when the entire tech world flooded in to try and by a Moto X at the steeply discounted $349 price.

Developer Editions are excluded this time around since you were actually able to buy them on Monday.

The rest of the details can be found here (and here).

As of me clicking “publish” on this post, it looks like we are 20 minutes away from kick off.

UPDATE:  ALL GONE. The next wave opens up next Monday, December 9.

UPDATE 2:  Motorola just sent out email confirmation of registration to confirm that you will soon be able to buy a discounted Moto X. This email does not include your promo code, but it promises that they are still coming.

UPDATE 3:  Promo codes are being delivered!

  • Larizard

    Anyone ordered a Verizon Dev Edition that don’t want it anymore, because they want a MotoMaker version? I have a code, but really want a dev edition instead :(

  • iCoop

    Merry Christmas… H2DW-KNSC-FRXP-OUGR-A2MO

    • Muffstic

      Thanks iCoop! That was very nice of you. I missed it by an hour because I forgot that it was eastern. I work on a military base so it’s been hard to get free time lately. Much appreciated.

  • Alex Coldstone Simon

    Since I just purchased a G2 from the Amazon glitch a few weeks back and just purchased Google Glass tonight, I do not think I would be able to ALSO buy the Moto X. I have one code to give away. email me at yaimalex@gmail.com and it is yours if you are the first one. good luck everyone!

  • Wideout6

    Alright I actually one of the folks who registered twice because I was having an issue with my comp, just ordered my X and want to help someone out. Only fair way is to post code and first come first serve, hopefully it goes to someone who is going to actually use it. Posting at 930EST.

    • Alan Curry

      I’ll take it. curry.Alan@gmail.com

      • GP

        Alan, you still using this code? I don’t want to snipe it, but if you don’t want it, I’m all over it..

        • CC

          Very considerate of you! If my friend doesn’t want it, I will make sure you have it.

        • Alan Curry

          Yes GP, that is considerate of you, but I am applying it right now. Thanks for not sniping it.

      • Alan Curry

        Wideout6, where are my manners. Thank you for giving me your extra code. I really appreciate it.

    • Wideout6

      H2DW-DBNR-6SVR-I9PF-KXI3 – Enjoy

  • jujubee

    I was about to pull the trigger on this, and then started to second guess myself after I saw a post about screen burns in AMOLED screens. Is this a big issue with the Moto X?

    • Bradley Michael

      it was with my galaxy nexus. there’s obvious screen burn on the top bar and the on-screen buttons. hopefully it’s better on the x

      • Hothfox

        I’m operating under the assumption that by the time I can notice burn-in, I’ll be ready to replace it anyway. I’d had my Galaxy Nexus for about 20 months now and have only just noticed burn-in in the same place you have it.

  • itsacardigan

    Went to Verizon tonight and played with the Moto X and decided that it’s too small for me. Going with the Droid Maxx instead. I have a code so the first person to reply an email address gets it.

  • IanThorpe

    Hey guys, I’m making good money here. If you have any extra codes, please send them to me at ebaycodes@mailinator.com

    Thanks!

  • Brnscofrnld

    I have three extra… I know, I know…. I got greedy. I really wanted to make sure we got a code to replace my wife’s Razr.

    • Brnscofrnld

      Down to two

      • LouS

        I’m looking for one.

        • Brnscofrnld

          Email?

          • LouS

            Thanks!

      • Iyvin Benjamin

        Do you still have one left? My email is iyvin.benjamin@gmail.com

        • Brnscofrnld

          Unfortunately I’m all out of codes.

    • Brnscofrnld

      One left.

    • Brnscofrnld

      All gone! Thanks for playing.

  • ryan savini

    i have my one and only code i am willing to give out. unfortunately for me, my bank account isn’t what i was hoping so i might as well give this to someone who can use it!! leave an email and ill help you out….

  • Kellin Brown

    I asked earlier if anyone was willing to give up one of their extra codes. One generous member responded and gave me one but it was invalid by the time i got around to trying to use it. Its appreciated but if anyone has another code they dont mind sending me it would be best if you just shoot me an email at kellinbrown@gmail.com Thanks again

  • Michael Rhodes

    Anyone else get multiple that can help out a sad GNex user upgrade? :)

    • Danny Rand

      Gimme your email, I have an extra.

      • Michael Rhodes
        • Danny Rand

          Gah, sorry. My buddy grabbed it before you replied. Sorry for the tease :/

          • Michael Rhodes

            It’s ok, another DL’er sent me one! I love this god damn website and the community behind it. :)

  • Suman Gandham

    Totally forgot about this – how long did it take for the codes to run out? Need to be prepared for Monday…

    • BaconEater

      9minutes

      • Suman Gandham

        Wow… do I need access to a high frequency trading platform to be successful? :p

        • BaconEater

          hah ya pretty much. good luck on monday!

        • Hothfox

          I didn’t do anything special, and I got one. I was simply on the website at 11:55am EST and started refreshing the page at that time, until the button came up to take me to the form.

  • RichFromBX

    I got a code if someone wants it – no strings attached, I just changed my mind

    • BaconEater

      nvm. I got one from someone else. It’s all stil__ill’s!

    • still__ill

      me me

      • RichFromBX

        hmmm…now DMs with Disqus…how do I get it you. Also, you’re using it for you and not some sh!tty ebay auction, right?

        • still__ill

          nah im using it for sure. ditching the GNEX. email it to me david.meza3@gmail.com

          • RichFromBX

            just sent it – let me know you got it…

          • still__ill

            Got it Thanks again

        • BaconEater

          i’ve seen him around. he’s legit

        • still__ill

          Sweet I got it Thanks!!

          • RichFromBX

            all good, enjoy….

          • droidrazredge

            congratulations!!!!

  • IanThorpe

    5 codes sold already, but I still have 6 more. The last 6 will be put up for 24-hour auctions on ebay, staggered about an hour apart. Make sure to search for “Motorola Moto X Code” Happy bidding!

  • brianem

    Guess I’m stuck on my pos Galaxy Nexus for the time being. Thanks to all those that grabbed multiple keys just because (double thanks for bragging about it just to make others feel bad) – some of us stuck on Verizon could have really used one. Ugh! I’m just as screwed next Monday with the lame 12 noon launch time. Some of us are at work and in meetings – the original botched Motorola date and time was before work.

    • IanThorpe

      Need a code? Check my ebay listings, “Motorola Moto X Code”!! Good luck!

    • Hothfox

      Everyone who participated had a different schedule. It’s not Moto’s fault for not scheduling around your specific needs. Noon is lunch hour for a lot of employees too, so that seemed like a good time to me.

  • Shawn Gill

    Got my moto x!! Finally can put this gnex to rest!!

  • Severo Rivera

    I had no idea that you get a free $10 Google play credit as well. Just redeemed it.

  • Jason Palmer

    I also have an extra code. Was going to get the wife a phone but finances are a little tight and we opted out. Anybody want it?

    • still__ill

      yes please

    • John
    • Jason Palmer

      Ok John and still_ill who is in more need of a the phone. The wife and I are stuck with a f’n galaxy nexus. Whats your situation?

      • John

        My mom who is on a bonic from my dad’s death earlier this year (he was killed in a wreck and the speaker is muffled from it)

        she won’t give it up but i told her about this amazing deal. said if i can get 150 off she’d get it. i can provide proof but would rather send via e-mail.

        • Jason Palmer

          How do I know you are telling the truth?

          • John

            I can provide proof of the wreck. I can then screen shot her verizon account thta has the phone

          • Jason Palmer

            I will forward the email from Motorola to foo@null.net or any other email you want. Sorry for you loss

          • John

            Actually, send it to my gmail if it’s not too late. webmastir@gmail.com — thanks man. I really appreciate it.

          • Jason Palmer

            OK it is sent to webmastir@gmail.com. Let me know if you got it.

          • John

            I did. Appreciate it.

      • still__ill

        GNEX also. need me some MotoX goodness

        • Jason Palmer

          I feel your pain

          • still__ill

            I guess I lost this one!!! I mean if hes telling the truth of course

          • John

            I actually am. I can only provide so much proof…but I’m not bs’ing.

          • Jason Palmer

            Yeah and technically he was first to respond to the original post even if it was by a few seconds. Hate the GNEX but I am stuck with it for at least another year :(

          • still__ill

            Yea I accept defeat and I will continue being stuck like you my friend,

          • John

            Thanks for being cool about it.

          • still__ill

            No problem. Im also sorry for your loss. Hope the phone helps a lil

    • GP

      I could use a code. I logged in at 12:07 and they were already sold out

  • Roberto Munoz

    Anybody need a discount code? I have an extra one

    • Jason Tsujimura

      I do!

      • Roberto Munoz

        H2DW-PBAD-936E-Q93W-RB5E

        Enjoy …

        • Jason Tsujimura

          Cheers mate, thank you!

          • Evadingfate

            The man gives you $150 and you didn’t even upvote his comment?

          • Jason Tsujimura

            Huh? I did!

  • MyStroPro

    Would someone mind sharing an unused code for a gent who was stuck in meetings all morning? Got to enjoy the daily grind I suppose.

    I need to retire my OG did Razr badly and am looking to leave Verizon and would love some help from our community.

  • clobberedchina

    Thank you Droid Life and a big, special thank you to the commenting community. You set me straight when I was trying to register this morning. Thank you so much.

    • droidrazredge

      What is the proper way to register for a code so I know for Monday ?

      • clobberedchina

        Just check in right here before the sale starts. The folks at Droid Life will be your guides.

  • Jason Tsujimura

    I totally spaced it this morning and got the time wrong by an hour. Thank goodness for next Monday!

  • barrmy

    trade – two codes if someone wants to sell me their droid maxx at a reasonable price :)
    stupid TX taxes brings this up to $380 so i might as well get a maxx for the battery life and 32gb

  • George264

    H2DW-I29E-OTNT-P3ZH-4RQ5
    here you go guys
    I used one of the codes posted because I couldn’t wait so here’s mine. FYI if multiple people enter the code at once it still works, woohoo!

    • Calayna

      Thank you good person! I will be passing on the good vibes/karma to everyone I come into contact at work tomorrow. And now I will not be stalking the website on Monday so that some other good person can get their code. Thank you! *internet hugs*

      • George264

        Haha no problem just passing it on. The guy who posted his spare code that 3 people actually redeemed allowed me to post. I was really scared at noon today that id have to wait till Monday I have no patience! I’ve watched every moto x
        Video on youtube

        • Calayna

          Well I’m glad both of us and many others got the phone we’ve been drooling over. I’ve been following the Moto X since Aug. Played with it in store and knew I needed it. My patience lasted me all the way till now at least. And again thanks!

  • stush0104

    I have an extra code. First to reply to this can have it.

    • Nazzi_Muhammad

      Bring it bubba!

    • Nazzi_Muhammad

      And a big hug and kisses for my friend stush0104

  • Kevin Zukerman

    I got my promo code and ordered just a few minutes ago! Stoked to get a $10 Google Play store credit in the deal, too. Nice work Moto! (definitely wasn’t saying that on Monday)

  • Jaciel

    If it says Stock:Available December 10…does that mean I should get by Dec.10?

  • friasco

    Can someone tell me what information was needed to fill the form to get the code? i heard that you need all your sim card info and other stuff.

    • evltwn

      all that was asked was your 1st and last name, email address, and a contact number.

  • Michael Bell

    Wifi is horrible on this phone. My Note 3 connects instantly and shows 3 of 4 bars, the X took 5 minutes of forcing and shows 1. Sending it back, you get what you pay for.

    • fooler

      what information do I need to fill in the form to get the moto x??

    • Just Saying

      If you got it at a discount, you’d probably be better off selling it…

    • gtg465x

      You got a defective unit, something is wrong with your router, or you are hard core BSing. No problems with Wifi for anyone else. The Moto X actually has better radio performance than the S4 and Note 3.

  • Hothfox

    Yay! Device ordered, going back because I forgot to get screen protectors for 30% off with THANKS. Got a $10 Google Play credit for sharing my design too :3

    SO EXCITED TO GET RID OF THE GALAXY NEXUS.

    • Sambit Rayginale Willkonson

      how do i get the 10 dollar credit?

      • ilovetechnology

        After purchase it asks you to share on Facebook or Google+, and they give you a $10 credit as a redeemable code afterwards.

    • Castel

      what information do I need to fill in the form to get the moto x?

      • Hothfox

        I had to put down first and last name, email address, and a contact phone number. They email you shortly after letting you know you registered for the code successfully, and then a couple hours later, you get the actual code.

  • Jaciel

    help! I am going with the crimson back but im torn between white or black front! I like the look of both so idk which one to pick! Accent color will be black

  • Fedor Martsenyuk

    Here you go Boys and Girls:

    H2DW-FOMS-UNQY-KGGF-NI9F

    • Sambit Rayginale Willkonson

      thanks fedor

    • fjohnston

      cheers!

  • djab

    Just received my code!

  • Daniel J. Peters

    Done! Finally! Thanks DL community!

  • Astroprojector

    So wait let me get this straight. There is a Google Nexus 5 16GB for $349 and Moto X 16GB for $349 after discount. it like comparing Ferrari to Ford Pinto. Here we have Ferrari for $350K and Ford Pinto for $500K but we give you $150K discount so you can buy the Pinto for the same price as Ferrari.

    Am I missing something?

    I got two codes just in case, but most likely will not use them.

    • Sambit Rayginale Willkonson

      your missing the fact that the ford pinto is DOPE!

      • Astroprojector

        OK, Yogo then.

        • Col_Angus

          I think you mean Yugo…

    • cheezeboy

      VZW

    • Tod Cox

      If you think the X is a Pinto you have not done your research.

      • gtg465x

        Yup. And total douche move of him to reserve multiple codes when he doesn’t even want the phone haha. “I don’t understand why everyone thinks this phone is better than the Nexus 5, so I’m going to prevent those who want it from getting it!”

    • Michael Rhodes

      will you be sharing either of those codes if you dont use them?

  • Jose Ramos

    i got to codes, just used one, my sis went for an iphone, ill gladly give it to some one that “really need it”

    • ColZill

      I really need it. Wanted to get a family member one two, but they didn’t get the email. My email is mgersten@bellsouth.net if you send it. Thanks

      • Jose Ramos

        ok ill send it, hope u really needed it

        • Jose Ramos

          hey any live or gmail mail, i couldnt sent it to the one u gave me

          • ColZill

            pu73rh4x0rdrpwner@gmail.com. Please don’t judge, I believe I’ve had that email since Gmail was released and I was an ignorant younger person. Thanks again! We were both trying to upgrade, but only one of our emails went through :(

          • Jose Ramos

            sent

          • ColZill

            Thanks so much for your generosity! With DL was my witness, if my family member doesn’t purchase the phone by Monday, I will give away the code and not let it expire!

          • AreuFingSerious

            You couldn’t really have sucker him into sending that code to you? could you? I’ll be seeing a new ebay listing for 150.00 off Moto X in the next hour I’m sure.

          • ColZill

            No eBay! Don’t even have an account. Just trying to upgrade both lines and keep unlimited!

  • Waiting game

    LOL, just searched Ebay and there are already a handful of codes for sale. Just killing time waiting for the email.

    • jovi

      Watch them kill those codes.

  • Fedor Martsenyuk

    Just got mine. I have 2 Extra ones if anyone is interested.

    • ColZill

      Yes please. Family got screwed!

    • Matt Calovich

      I will take one if you have it

      • Fedor Martsenyuk

        How do I share the Promo code so no one else sees it?

        • ColZill

          Maybe by email?

        • Matt Calovich

          you can shoot it to my email calovich@gmail.com

          • Fedor Martsenyuk

            Just sent you the promo code via email.

        • Scooter

          Just post it here, first person to use it wins.

    • fjohnston

      I will take one if you have and extra! please and thanks

    • Matt Calovich

      let me know when it is sent and I will look for it, thanks again!

    • Matt Calovich

      got it, thanks!

    • fjohnston

      If you still have an extra can you send it to sail4can@gmail.com please?

  • Sambit Rayginale Willkonson

    Dear Motorola Mobility Inc,
    Where is my promotional code? I recieved a confirmation email but have not gotten my code yet! It has been a long time since then!
    Please send me my code, Motorola Mobility Inc!

    Thank you for your time,
    Sambit

    • Sambit Rayginale Willkonson

      sambit 4 ever!

  • PaulWalker

    I really don’t appreciate everyone telling me to “die in a fire.”

    • Sambit Rayginale Willkonson

      show som respect pls

  • Michael Bell

    The 32GB Moto Maker I ordered on Monday just showed up right now although it had originally said Friday the 6th. Woohoo!

    • evltwn

      Surprised to see you so excited for a “sub par” phone.

      • gtg465x

        Jealous much that all of the tech blogs think this “sub par” phone is better than whatever phone you’re using? It’s OK, keep trying to justify your purchase. You’re doing good.

        • evltwn

          I’m not the one who called it sub par…Michael Bell did on Monday.

  • WILLD

    GOT IT… FREE SHIPPING.. BUT NOT SURE HOW FAST THESE WILL SHIP OUT.. ANYONE KNOW?

    • ConroeEd

      Mine says est delivery the 9th. But it is only 1 day to make it from Austin to Houston

  • Scott Smith

    So I think we should take some votes on what the most hideous color combinations would be for a custom moto X. I’ll start, this makes me want to barf… black front, olive back, purple accents.

  • ConroeEd

    Ordered mine 5 min ago.

    • fjohnston

      pass it a long ;)

    • BaconEater

      Mind sharing man? Got a good person(me) who needs xmas gift?
      foo@null.net

      • ConroeEd

        I am waiting to hear back from a friend if he got in today for his wife’s xmas present.

  • TMAN213

    Just got my code at 1:22pm. I ordered at 8:58am PST

    • BaconEater

      got any extra?

      • TMAN213

        Sorry BE. I wanted to play it safe and just do one request. But hopefully you’ll get in Monday or I’m sure the people that did get more then one will hopefully give them out. They should email them to Kellen and let him do them the right way.

        • ilovetechnology

          That’s a good idea, better than trying to share here in the comments.

  • Severo Rivera

    Just ordered my Moto X. Phew..what a relief.

  • NexusMan

    Just got my code 4:21pm.

  • droidrazredge

    What case is better;Air Jack Case for Moto X versus Air
    Jacket Grip Case ? or should I get a different case altogether ?

    • obviousman

      No case.

      • droidrazredge

        I’ve always managed to drop every phone I’ve had no matter how hard I try not to. With an off contract price like this I really want to protect it .

        • obviousman

          That makes no sense. This is probably the cheapest off contract price phone you have purchased in 10 years.

          • droidrazredge

            This is the first time I will be buying off contract. I have always used the 2-year subsidized to purchase a phone. Since they are getting rid of unlimited from Verizon on upgrades this is the reason I jumped on this option

    • NexusMan

      I don’t do cases on my phone either, but if i were like you and feel the need to get one because of constant dropping, I’d get the Air Jacket Grip Case.

  • Severo Rivera

    Just got it, yessssss!!!

  • Cameron Horst

    i got both my codes. i will order my phone later today, and if i get the confirmation email, i will give away my second code… First person to email me at allpckid@aol.com (yes i know its nerdy, got it 10 years ago and now it serves as my spam email) will get the code, and i will send it first thing tomorrow after i order.

    • IanThorpe

      Don’t sign up for spam from this guy, go to ebay instead and bid with confidence! Search “Motorola Moto X Code”

    • Cameron Horst

      lol, im just trying to share the love here. I spent 10 hours in front of the computer on monday as did many others. I intend to give away my code for free to those who went through the same.

      • NexusMan

        Motorola could have shared the love just fine. They didn’t need you hogging up codes, so you could “share the love,” they were already sharing.

        • Cameron Horst

          after what i went through on monday, i absolutely did not trust their website, and filled out the form twice. Sorry.

          • NexusMan

            I hear you. That I can understand. Just sensitive to others who claimed like 11 codes for their own selfish, opportunistic reasons.

    • ColZill

      Email sent. I know it’s probably too late, but a family member got screwed and didn’t get the code.
