Final Day to Use Moto X Cyber Monday Promo Codes, Share Any Unused Here!

December 15 has arrived, which means this is the final day to use Moto X (2nd gen) $140 off promo codes from Motorola’s Cyber Monday deal. In fact, you have until 11:59PM CT to use it.

As a reminder, the deal was to receive a code that would land you $140 off of a brand new custom made Moto X (2nd gen). For the 16GB model with a standard back, you are looking at just $359. That’s under $400 for a phone that many tech reviewers are calling the best Android phone on the market (our review). Of course, if you choose premium upgrades like Natural or Leather backs, or a bump to 32GB of storage, the price goes up.

For those who missed out on the opportunity to sign-up to receive a code, we thought we would open up the comments as a place to potentially grab one. In other words, if you have an unused code that you would like to share, dive into the comments and post it.

Good luck!  (more…)
