Motorola hates making money, extends $70 Moto X savings

Valentine’s Day presents us with enough to remember. Did we call to confirm those reservations? Are we sure we gave the florist the right address? With all the high-pressure romance stuff to deal with, it’s understandable if a few other priorities start slipping through the cracks. A couple weeks back, following an ultra-brief one-hour sale on the Moto X, offering $100 off its already low price, Motorola switched gears to a $70 discount that would run through today. If you were putting off making your purchase until the last minute (or forgot about it altogether, with so much else to remember for today), your reprieve has arrived, with Motorola extending the deal for one more week.

The $70-off Moto X offer now runs through Saturday, February 22. You don’t even need a coupon code or to register your email or anything – just hop on over to the Moto Maker to customize your phone and the $70 savings are built right in to the list price: that makes it just about $330 for the 16GB model, or $380 for 32GB. And don’t forget those four wooden back options are all available for $25 extra.

Now, this may be the last of these great Moto X deals we see for a while, but what if it’s not? Motorola sure seems to like heavily discounting the Moto X – and today is far from the first time a promotion for it got unexpectedly extended – so would it be crazy to wonder if a more permanent reduction (like the one we saw at the start of the year) might be in the cards? The Motorola MWC event falls just a few days after this promotion ends; could we get such news there?
