Best Buy deal: Buy an unlocked Moto Z, get a Moto Z Play for 50% off

Best Buy currently has a deal that should interest you if you're looking to purchase two new unlocked Android smartphones. The retailer is offering the Moto Z Play for 50% off to customers who are buying a Moto Z. Thus, you're getting an unlocked Moto Z for $699.99, and an unlocked Moto Z Play for $224.99 (instead of $449.99).

Granted, right now, you can purchase an unlocked Moto Z from Amazon for $499.99 ($200 off the regular price). However, Best Buy's deal is slightly better if you intend to get both the Moto Z and Moto Z Play, as you're saving $225. Best Buy doesn't specify how long this deal will last, so you may want to hurry up if you need these two Moto smartphones - check out the source link at the end of this article for full details.

Please note that the unlocked Moto Z and Moto Z Play only work on GSM/LTE carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile. They can't be used on Verizon and Sprint, though Verizon has its own Moto Z Droid and Moto Z Play Droid anyway.

I prefer Z Play over Z, due to the much longer battery life.

The z is pretty good in battery life with only 2600man. Plus, I could just snap on my free incipio battery case and get another 2+ hrs of sot.

Not to mention the Z also supports Daydream VR, whereas the play does not. But any Z is great especially since they support all those Moto mods. Also there is a Tango mod arriving as well. The Moto Z line is by far the most versatile smartphones.

This deal sucks. I'd much rather buy from Amazon at$4.99 The Z play is way over priced. I got my Axon 7 mini for 200 with similar specs plus awesome speakers & sound & Led screen & great 16mp camera
