Motorola extends its website discounts to February 17th

Motorola is extending the discount it offers on purchases from its website to February 17th at Noon ET. Spend $500 or more and receive a $100 discount. Spend $250 to $499 and you get $35 chopped off of your bill. Before you start wringing your hands in glee like some silent movie villain, we need to tell you that both the Nexus 6 and Republic Wireless' 2nd Generation Motorola Moto X are not part of the deal.

We suggest that you focus on the devices that are eligible for the discount such as the second-generation Motorola Moto X, second-generation Motorola Moto G, first-generation Motorola Moto G with 4G LTE, Motorola Moto E, Motorola DROID Maxx, Motorola DROID Mini and Motorola DROID Turbo. Of these models, the Droid Mini is free.

Also included is the Motorola Moto 360 smartwatch and accessories like the Motorola Hint and the Motorola PowerPack 5100. Motorola made up a list of combinations that can save you money. For example, buy two Moto 360 timepieces and save $100. Buy a Moto X sans contract and a Moto 360 and save $100. If you buy a Moto G and a PowerPack 5100, you can save $35.

The Droid Mini is not free, it is $350. I guess you didn't notice the asterisk. Most of the phones that qualify for this discount don't cost enough to get the discount. Moto E: $120 Moto G: $180 Moto G LTE - $200

He never said the Mini was free off contract, just that it was free. If he had said free off contract, then he would've been in error.

"Free with contract" still isn't free. If you get the "Free" phone the cheapest plan is $80 per month (Plus taxes and fees). However if you purchase the phone on the edge program the cost is $65 per month (Plus taxes and fees). "Free" Phone $80 x 24 = $1920 Edge Phone $65 x 24 = $1560 That "free" phone actually costs $360. Add in the difference in taxes and that "free" phone costs hundreds more than buying the same phone.

Obviously there are ways to get it for less. What they're saying is, if you get the device on a 2 year contract, there is no cost for the device itself, only for the plan. The fact that Verizon has now set it up that going on contract costs more than going with Edge is on them. Which is interesting in that they were the holdout for eliminating contracts. Ever heard the phrase nothing in life is free? That applies here as well. You're always going to figure the cost of the plan, so technically the phones are never free, but without the plan you'd have WiFi media player. That's how the carriers pay for the device when they subsidize devices, they make money back through fees baked into the plan. When they do so, they take an initial hit on the cost of the device, and make it up throughout the life of the plan. With programs like Edge, it's essentially the same thing, but with more transparency in the fees. Regardless, if you're not buying out of contract, you're still paying for the device. This is the same when you get a free car. You still have to pay for the sales tax, insurance, fuel and maintenance. So technically that isn't free either.

Yes, I have heard the phrase "Nothing is free in life". That is what I was pointing out: Getting the phone for "free" is the most expensive way to get it. I expect Verizon to advertise a "free" phone to try to get customers. However, Phone Arena is a consumer site and there is no reason for them to parrot Verizon's marketing.

That's because they want you to buy more than one and/or accessories to go along with it.

Obviously, is not doing well, because they extended the date. Most people I know are giving their codes away.

Hey, that's cool of you. I'm not in the market for a new phone so whoever else wants it, get it while you can.
