A sale on a sale: Verizon Moto X now 1 cent through Moto Maker

A sale on a sale: Verizon Moto X now 1 cent through Moto Maker
The Moto X has been on sale for a while now. Motorola has been offering a $70 off sale on off-contract models of the device. That sale was supposed to end on Valentine's Day, but it has been extended until this coming Saturday, February 22nd. Now, there is a sale on top of the sale for those of you on Verizon who might want an on-contract Moto X.

If you're in that group looking for an on-contract Moto X, you can now get a fully customized version of the device on Verizon for just 1 cent. That means if you want a wooden Moto X, it would only cost you $25.01 to get a teak, ebony, walnut, or bamboo version of the handset. That's a pretty solid deal if you're looking to re-up your contract. This deal is scheduled to end the same day as the $70-off deal, which is this Saturday, February 22nd.

Of course, all of these sales do beg the question of whether Motorola is getting ready to announce a new device or not. Google has said that it would be business as usual for Motorola while the regulatory approvals are in the works for the Lenovo deal. Motorola does have an announcement planned for MWC next week, but it has said it will just be a business update with no major announcements.

Motos tend to not hold their resale value..but still, a good phone for a great price...

You're right they do not. That's why I will continue to get the use out of my Moto X as it is a great phone.

I love the touchless controls, and the Motorola skip. So I never have to login to my moto x, and just talk to it. No other device can do what the moto x can do.

With the iPhone 5S, I don't need to waste bandwidth to talk to the device, it unlocked effortlessly with my fingerprint.

Maybe you should try it out. I'm telling you the Moto X is awesome. You don't have to follow through with it if it turns out to be false.

Well, Now I'm annoyed, I spent $150 on it at Verizon with $100 rebate that I'M STILL WAITING FOR, but I do LOVE my phone, so I suppose that I should just be happy that I no longer have to use my Galaxy Nexus.

US citizens get all the discounts :(

I don't think you really want the discounts that US citizens get. Yes, new subscribers are getting a Moto X for no up front cost. However, they are signing a contract to pay $2400 for service over the next 2 years. Non-US citizens don't get discounts on phones but your monthly service is much less expensive and better.

Still too expensive. I want them to pay me 20$ for buying the phone. *stupid sarcasm*
