Motorola planned to sell the Moto X smartphone for $150 off on Cyber Monday — but the company’s servers couldn’t keep up with demand, and customers were unable to checkout. So Motorola is trying again.

The company is running a 2-day sale, allowing customers to register for a voucher that’ll let them pick up a Moto X for $150 off the list price. That means you can get a 16GB model for as little as $350.

Update: And the 12/04 codes are gone. If you didn’t get one, you can try again on 12/09!

Update 2: Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside says the company gave out “tens of thousands” of codes in 4 minutes.

Moto X

Here’s how it works:

  • Go to and register after 12:00PM on either Wednesday December 4th, 2013 or Monday December 9th, 2013.
  • Motorola will send you a promo cove via email.
  • You can use that code within a week to get $150 off a Moto X.
  • Use Moto Maker to customize the design of your phone and enter your code during the checkout process.

The deal is only good for a limited time, and for a limited number of devices — but if Motorola runs out of vouchers on the 4th, the company still plans to offer more on December 9th.

Motorola is only offering the deal on contract-free Moto X phones. If you buy your phone from a wireless carrier, this discount isn’t for you. The promotion also doesn’t cover the Moto X Developer Edition.

Still, the discount now makes an entry-level Moto X phone the same price as an entry-level Google Nexus 5 (for a limited time). The Nexus phone has a higher-resolution display and a faster processor, but the Moto X has touchless controls and active notifications that let you use the phone by talking to it or view notifications even when the screen is (mostly) off.

The Moto X features a 4.7 inch, 1280 x 720 pixel AMOLED display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16Gb to 32GB of storage, and a 2200mAh battery. It has a 10.5MP rear camera and 2.1MP front-facing camera.

Motorola is also offering 30 percent discounts on some accessories through Monday, December 9th when you use the promo code THANKS at checkout.

    1. IMO it would be very wise of them to open up as much inventory as possible. . . even if that means delayed shipping. As the Moto X is a new direction for Motorola, and getting it in as many hands as possible would do a lot for the next generation — it’s a good device but doesn’t have the hype or marketing other devices have and will be overlooked by many.
