Day 2 of Motorola’s $150-off Moto X Promo Happens Today at 9AM Pacific! (Updated)

moto x motomaker

You ready for day-2 of Motorola’s $150-off Moto X MotoMaker promo code giveaway?

To make up for a botched Cyber Monday deal, Motorola decided to re-do this incredible full retail price discount on their 2013 flagship by handing out promo codes over two separate days that can be redeemed within a week. This not only decreases the stress on their custom phone software, but also gives you time to finalize your custom phone. For those not familiar with the promo, $150 off the full retail price of a Moto X gets you into a 16GB version for $350 or the 32GB version for $399, and that’s without a contract. It’s most certainly the deal of the season. 

As you all know if you hung out with us last week, the codes don’t hang around for long, so be ready a couple of minutes before 9:00AM Pacific (12:00PM Eastern). Last Wednesday, all codes were gone with 10 minutes. Thankfully, we had the community donate a couple of dozen to hand out to you, the glorious DL community.

We don’t have the official links for this week’s sign-up form, but feel free to try these as we get closer to go-live (9AM Pacific, 12PM Eastern):



UPDATE:  And it’s over. That’s it for Motorola’s $150-off deal!

  • Chillywilly

    thank you droid life commentors for lending me a moto x code to get a MOTO X! yeah!~

  • Jim Kalista

    Sold out !!! That was quick!

  • Stephen Lucas

    dang still missed out 🙁

  • xraytedjim

    All sold out 🙁

    • ssl48

      Did you want a code?

      • Darryl Sanchez

        I need one =( help

  • Col_Angus
    • jbegs

      Yeah, those people are greedy bastards and suck at life. I think I was able to secure a couple. I plan on giving them to some co-workers that couldn’t get in. Oh yeah, by give them, I mean free of charge. If I have any left I will make sure the Droid-Life community has access.

      • XX7

        Yeah you do realize you are greedy as well right? So many hypocrites on this post is amusing. Because you took way more than you needed for yourself, people like me could not get a code. I applaud someone selling on ebay who is at least giving me a chance at the discount over your greedy bastard self getting more than enough for you and giving them to your coworkers just so you can have your coworkers think you are cool and awesome when really you are greedy and hypocritical. Then you go on to say these other people on ebay suck at life yet I at least would be able to obtain a code from them where as from your jbegs greedy self I would not. So as far as anyone is concerned who actually couldn’t get a code because of people like you, you suck at life.

        • jbegs

          Like I said they were grabbed for co-workers who couldn’t get in. They knew I was doing it to help. I’m sorry you don’t work with such “cool” people. I also emailed a fellow DL reader with a code. Have fun paying for your code. Readers like you that don’t know the full story and jump to conclusions are why people are so hesitant to help.

        • jbegs

          Have you obtained a code yet? Do you need one?

    • Would have to agree.

      • Col_Angus

        I ordered last week (delivering today) but put in for another code for you folks to give away. I know there are mixed opinions on taking a code if you’re not buying one, but I’d like to keep it in the Droid-Life community.

        • Thanks, we appreciate that. And also, by doing that you are keeping them away from a-hole resellers looking to make a cheap buck off a free promo. ‘Merica.

          • jbegs

            That’s where I was at. People abusing the system should be “taken care of” if you know what I mean. Trying to make a couple extra bucks off of someone else’s misfortune is awful. They are totally killing the idea of saving $150 off the phone by trying to sell these.

          • Someguy

            I have 2 extras from last weeks give away ending 12/11 that my sisters didn’t want. Let me know and I’ll send them to whoever.

          • iMrAn

            I need one code for myself if you have a spare please. you can send me at mails4imran (at) yahoo dot com! Thanx

          • I’d love one if you still have it – cgpatton at gmail.com thanks!

          • Randy

            Maybe if Motorola wouldn’t of screwed up their own promo in the first place this wouldn’t be an “issue”. This is America where greed rules, I have no problem with people doing this, its still a discount no mater how you look at it. If Verizon would let us keep our unlimited plans and get a new contract we wouldn’t have to fight over stupid things like this.

    • middlehead

      Report them to ebay. It’s against Motorola’s terms which makes it against ebay’s terms, plus it’s actually violating ebay’s own terms for coupon sales.

      • Col_Angus

        Reporting as many as i can find. Thanks for the heads up!

    • capecodcarl

      There are so many better ways they could have approached this. For one thing, they should insist that the e-mail and name on your order match the one provided when you signed up for the coupon code and limit discounts to one per person.

    • The worst part is they’re doing it to make a grubby $10? I’m not against anyone making a buck, but find a better way.

    • Kofi Williams

      What do you expect in a capitalist country? Wanting to make money isn’t greed it’s the way of life in America.

      • j

        aka greed.

  • bboyairwreck

    anyone else having trouble getting their credit card information validated. I’ve tried both credit cards at checkout and it keeps giving me an error. I have double checked everything

  • ssl48

    Does anyone know how long the codes are valid?

    • SeanPlunk

      Once you get the email it’ll tell you, but it should be through next Monday at midnight I believe.

      • ssl48


  • M3D1T8R

    I did end up entering the info for my brother for a second one. So I’ll have possibly two. I will post them here next week if I/we decide not to use them. Gotta see where I’m at financially after this week…holidays and all. Hope by some Christmas miracle that the wood backs come in before the code expires.



    Heres another code. I just got a google glass invite the other day. No money for a Moto X

    • Ian

      I used it, thanks! I also got in for a code, so will post when I get it. #payitforward

      • Darryl Sanchez

        Can I have that code please im stuck at work so I can’t be here looking if you do decide email it to darryls392 at gmail. com Thank you

        • Ian

          Gave it to a co-worker. Apologies. Hope you end up getting one!

  • M3D1T8R

    Wow, that was fast. Was in the middle of inputting my wife’s info, and it wouldn’t go through by the time I submitted it. Oh well! Happy to get my code!

    • ssl48

      I’ll be posting two codes so no worries.

    • I’d love one if you don’t need it. cgpatton at gmail.com thanks

      • rmaavnii

        @chrispa:disqus do you still need a code?

    • Gakirby

      If you have another extra I’d love one. gakirby (at) gmail.com

    • Edward Coles

      if you are not going to use the 3rd one and it is not spoken for I would love to get it. Ed.coles.jr (at) gmail.com

  • Jaxon Wright

    here’s one from last week. I ended up not being able to use it in time (I have to wait till Thursday to get the phone)


    • jbegs

      Were you able to secure a code for yourself today?

      • Jaxon Wright

        yes I was

    • Raoul

      Thank you very much. This worked for me. I’m replacing a stolen iphone with the Moto X.

      • Jaxon Wright

        no problem

  • Justtyn Hutcheson


    Hopefully they have more than a few 10k’s this time around so its not out in 4 minutes 😛

  • Jerk

    Mwahahahaha I grabbed 12 codes!

    • flosserelli

      I hope you buy 12 phones or know 12 people that will actually use the codes. Otherwise, you are taking away an opportunity for someone else.

      • Arthur Dent

        Come on, he’s trolling you. Look at the name. He didn’t get 12 codes.

        Pics or it didn’t happen, Jerk.

        • Ian

          Well he’s posted like 6 different ones so far, I was able to use one. As long as he grabbed 12 for the community and isn’t selling them, more power to him.

  • dazz1996

    I got two from todays promo with my two emails merry x-mas all.

  • M3D1T8R

    It looks like I can register for another code for my friend, can anyone confirm that this is the case and it won’t invalidate me?

    • Randy

      i got 2 last week and 2 this week. Just used different email addys.

  • steveliv

    this link (http://www.motorola.com/us/motorola-shop-all/motorola-shop-all-sale.html) is not updated, the main moto link has the live signup.

  • M3D1T8R

    Already got confirmation email (not code).

    “It won’t be long…

    We’ve received your successful registration and we’re working on your
    unique promo code. We’ll be sending it in the next few hours.


    The Moto Maker Team”

    • Brandon

      thank you kellex, was about to go crazy haha. got mine in.

  • john owens


    Merry Christmas! Here is my code I didn’t use last week. I posted this in G+ so not sure if it was taken yet. H2DW-AFGX-SUHL-LQ4Y-PM33

    • Thanks dude! Just redeemed the code for my wife!

  • Scott Miller

    it’s live.

  • M3D1T8R

    Got mine in.

  • Jovan

    I have an extra code my friend ended up not wanting (it’s a worthwhile investment if you ask me) in any case. Does anyone still need one? It’s good till Wed.

    • Jovan

      er, post your e-mail please 🙂

      • Dan

        I would love it if you still have it.


        • Jovan


  • NeilOMalley

    Let the F5 abuse begin!

  • GJV

    Why did so many people obtain promo codes they didn’t intend to use?

    • SeanPlunk

      In my case I had a couple friends that wanted one, but were out of town/at work. My son had the flu that day so I happened to be home and snagged codes for them. I actually got 4. Two friends ended up using them, and two ended up with G2’s 😉

    • jbegs

      I’m sure most of the people just wanted to be part of the in crowd. Other’s figured they could profit from someone else that couldn’t get in (That is the shame of things). For me, I would try to get a code knowing that someone out there really wants it but couldn’t get in on the deal because of connection issues. I would give the codes away since my Galaxy Note II is awesome (I’d like to stick with the Note line and don’t know what I’m going to do come upgrade time to keep my unlimited).

    • I really don’t like Motorola’s solution to their problem, it should have been first come first serve on ordering the phones like they planned. Lots of people probably got a code so they could think and decide if they wanted one, then later passed and never used the code.

    • EdubE24

      I have an extra, thought my wife might have liked one. But her iPhone wins out again. So if you would like it let me know!

      • Chris

        Christofer.Hardy at gmail. Thanks!

        • EdubE24

          Sent your way… Enjoy!!

        • EdubE24

          Did you receive the code? Just want to make sure I sent it to the right address.

  • me



    Good until Wednesday at midnight

  • Jeff Miller

    I ordered a Verizon Dev edition last week. Received it Friday. Im going to hold onto my consmer edition and return the Dev one. If anyone is interested let me know. After tax it was $421. I will send it back for return on Wed if no interest. Just putting it out there.

    • steveindajeep

      I’d be interested.

    • MrOrange645

      I’m interested if you accept PayPal

    • Princesation

      I’m interested. PayPal or Google Wallet?

    • steveindajeep

      Just realized I didnt give you my contact info. my name at gmail. Thanks.

  • Nate Webb

    I have a Verizon Dev edition for sale. Never activated. Still has factory screen cover on it. Just a FYI if anyone is looking for one.

    • Mike Kubik

      I am interested

      • Nate Webb

        I got it last Monday. I’ll sell it for what I paid for it, plus shipping.

        • Mike Kubik

          Could I keep this offer open to see whether I get a code in the next 10 minutes? If I don’t, you can re-post.

          • Nate Webb

            Let me know.

          • Mike Kubik

            Ok, I received a code. You can re-post the DE to someone else. Thanks.

          • rmp20

            Nate, bought the GSM DE by mistake. Would like to get VZW instead. Would happily take it off your hands. Let me know.

          • Nate Webb

            Sure. Got a email address? I can email you the details.

          • rmp20

            rpaderofsky @-@-@ structural dot net. thanks…

  • bjssp

    I love my Nexus 5 (most things about it, anyway) but really like the Moto X features like Active Display. I just wish the screen were a little bigger. I’ve seen hints that Motorola will be released some phones–Atom, Nova, Xplay, or whatever the hell they are being called–in Q1 or Q2 of 2014, so I think I will just wait.

    • guest

      dont think they will release another flagship before fall next year ..

  • Shut up Donny

    Here is a code I decided not to use, if anyone wants it.


  • avs

    BTW, here’s one more promo code – H2DW-QIRB-FYPX-OLDV-XFZG

    • Jesse

      Thank you, avs! I used the H2DW-QIRB-FYPX-OLDV-XFZG code.

      • Maxim∑

        thanks for letting us know. I keep using used codes -.-

        • John

          Maxim∑, do you still need a code? If so, reply to this with your email and I’ll send you my extra one.

          • Darryl Sanchez

            I need one if you have a extra was thinking about just buying one idk will see.

          • Maxim∑

            yes please! maximenasa (at) gmail.com Thank you!

          • John

            Maxim∑, sent! It should be arriving shortly.

          • Maxim∑

            Thank you! I just received it and it worked.

          • john

            You’re welcome!

      • avs

        Great! Glad it helped!

  • Jaxon Wright

    If I get one from this, I’ll post one from last wednesday here.

  • avs

    Can anyone recommend a good clear case for moto x beyond the ones already on the Motorola website? I don’t want to shell out $30 – $40 for a case and am look for a clear that so that my custom colors are clearly visible. Any suggestions?

    • Jaxon Wright

      the hyperion ones are nice (and cheap).

      • avs

        @tomn1ce:disqus @jaxonwright:disqus thanks! The product description says this case is “frost clear”. Do you think that spoils the look of you moto x?

        • Jaxon Wright

          It’s not mine, but my mom has a frost clear on her white moto x, and it looks great. I will probably get the same one for my spearmint one I’m getting soon.

    • tomn1ce

      Take a look at this one….I got this one and seems to be good and fit very nice…http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CXM1I0E/ref=oh_details_o08_s00_i01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

  • justin puccia

    just remember they will not charge you properly or be willing to help to fix it

  • Zoloft_User

    I have to thank those of you who had codes and donated them to the DL board! I can now keep my unlimited data because of a generous person, like many others who posted their code to get a custom Moto X! Stay strong DL!

  • SeanPlunk

    Droid-life readers, these two codes are good through the 12th 🙂

    I got them for two friends that were out of town, but they decided to buy on contract instead:



    Enjoy and happy holidays all!

  • red014

    Every time you post pics of that phone I kick myself for not getting spearmint. It’s a damn nice color. Oh well, cherry is pretty sweet too.

    • Zach B.

      I spent 2 hours in Moto Maker toying with the spearmint…. I almost regret it.

  • steveindajeep

    Still no Developers Edition discounts?

    • red014

      Apparently some people were able to get those purchases to go through last Monday so they were never part of the coupon thing.

      • steveindajeep

        Which apparently excludes myself….i tried as soon as I was able to get in, by the time i got to check out i got “items in cart are no longer available”. Very bummed.

        • Nate Webb

          Are you looking for Verizon?

          • steveindajeep

            Indeed. Im a little leary buying it private though, been burned before.

          • Nate Webb

            Yeah, I understand that for sure. I have mine listed on swappa, but I would be willing to part with it for what I paid for it plus shipping. Its brand new and still has factory screen covers on it. Sales would go through swappa

          • Princesation

            How much would you be selling it for?

          • Nate Webb

            What’s your email address? I can email you details if your interested.

          • Princesation

            Sorry for the late response. My gmail is princesation

          • Princesation

            My gmail is just my user name

          • Princesation

            Sorry for the Late reply. For some reason my comments keep getting deleted. My Gmail is just my username

      • hyperbeatser

        I was able to order one since it was the only page working/allowing orders to be placed, as were a lot of other people because they did sell out of the available units on Monday as they had originally planned, but the moto maker version…we know that story

  • hyperbeatser

    FYI to those of you trying to get a code today – the page went live a few mins early last Wednesday, so look out around 11:55am EST/8:55 PST

  • htowngtr

    Can’t the T-Mo versions be completely bootloader unlocked by request?

    • Yep.

      • htowngtr

        So would be worthwhile to get as a “developer” edition for GSM.

        • hyperbeatser

          well you can’t with the discount codes anyway – they sold out DE’s last monday

          • htowngtr

            That’s what I’m saying

      • htowngtr

        But what are the main differences then? Radios the same?

        • anezarati

          the t mobile version and dev edition are the same except that the dev edition is sim unlocked.

          • htowngtr

            But you can request a SIM unlock, can’t you?

          • anezarati

            yeah, you can usually if you are in good standing with the company (no unpaid balances, etc)

      • ddevito

        bootloader or carrier unlocked?

        • htowngtr


          • ddevito

            So who unlocks the bootloader? T-Mobile or Motorola?

    • Franz

      Unlocking the AT&T version would only cost $10-13 bucks also. And then you can use it on AT&T and T-Mobile. So at least 2/4 major carriers.

      • htowngtr

        Unlocking SIM, not bootloader.

        • Franz

          Whoops. You’re right.

  • Michael

    I have a code from Wednesday if anyone wants it. First person to responds gets it.
