Motorola Moto X now comes with a free Moto Hint (off contract, US only)

As of today, Motorola is allowing customers in the US to get a free Moto Hint when buying an off-contract Moto X (2nd generation). Normally, the Moto Hint costs $149.99, so this is a pretty sweet deal, especially if you're in need of a new Bluetooth headset like the Hint.

To receive the free Moto Hint, just add it to your cart after you add an unlocked or no-contract Moto X, and Motorola will automatically apply the $149.99 discount. Prices for an off-contract Moto X start at $399.99 on Republic Wireless, however, this variant of the handset isn't included in the offer. Thus, you'll have to spend $499.99 for a Moto X to get the free Moto Hint. Mind you, the promotion won't last forever: it's going to end on April 14.

This isn't the first time when Motorola is throwing in a free gift with the purchase of a Moto X. Last month, customers had the chance to get a free Moto E when buying a Moto X (though this offer only lasted for 24 hours).

Later this year, probably in August or September, Motorola will announce its third generation Moto X. Knowing this, would you still be interested in getting the second generation Moto X?

Still not enough value here. The Moto X still costs too much as a midranger.

I wouldn't even call it a midranger. You want a new phone, you need to get the Samsung Galaxy S6. This is a true flagship. It has everything you need, except for a toilet. Damn, I can't tell you guys how cool Samsung is.

the Moto X is a solid beast, black leather back dark accents, black front. Take my money! if you don't play games, I see no reason the phone wouldn't last you a good 2-3 years

Here's a free Hint- Don't by this device, yet. Battery and camera a no go. In addition, still over priced.
