Motorola's Valentine's Day sale will let you take up to $140 off of orders (US only)

Motorola today announced some sweet deals that customers in the US will be able to take advantage of starting February 2. The company will offer promo codes worth $140 for any purchase of at least $499.99, as well as codes worth $50 for purchases of at least $249.99 - both will be available only on February 2.

Starting February 3 and throughout February 14, you'll have the chance to save $100 on purchases of at least $499.99, or $35 when you buy products of at least $249.99.

Motorola says that you can combine almost any device and accessory (available on its US website) in these orders. Sadly, the Nexus 6 isn't included in the deal. Also not included are the Moto X (2014) for Republic Wireless, and Motorola's Extended Service Plan. Moreover, you have to "limit two devices among" the following: new Moto X, new Moto G, Moto E, Moto G LTE, and Moto 360.

It's not the first time Motorola is discounting its products, and it's nice to see the company so engaged in offering deals like these. You can find all the details you need about Moto's Valentine's Day sale at the source link below.

New Moto X for $360 is manageable. Although I think that should have been the price from the start.

Not for that battery, should be $250.

I agree. That battery is horrendous.

Didn't you agree that the new Moto X was what the original Moto X should have been, as far as specs and price go? So now why are you saying that the price should be even lower? Also, when I checked recently the 16 gig Moto X was going for 400 bucks at full retail price, which means to get up to 499 you either have to get accessories or pimp the shiznit out of that Moto X. So in reality you might be getting a 32 gig, leather backed Moto X with a 25 buck accessory for 360 bucks. Are you really saying that that's what the price should be anyway for that kind of bundle?

Yes I said the 2014 should have been the previous year's model. Your point? The battery is still horrible. I agreed with the user said it was bad. I am saying the price for a 32gb Moto X should be $350 while the 64gb should be $399.

Why should that be the price for those respective memory sizes, when literally no one else except for maybe OnePlus prices their phones even close to that? Don't get me wrong, it would be awesome, but why is that your expectation for Motorola?

16. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Those are flagship phones with flagship specs. Why are you singling me out?

And the Moto X had flagship specs when it came out. It was comparable to the Galaxy S5 in every way, which was only a few months old, and there were one, maybe two phones that topped the Moto X in specs. And virtually none of them could really best it in the benchmark game. So tell me again why 350 bucks for a 32 gig flagship phone is a sane expectation, Mxy. News flash: ya can't.

Ok so maybe the specs aren't as midrange as the first one. It does do a few things right. But it also does a lot of things wrong like the battery life and no stereo speakers. the nexus 5 is about $350 for 32GB.

The Nexus 5 is a year older design than the 2014 X. Not comparable. Your expectation would only be valid if Samsung's S5 is 350 bucks for a 32 gig version, along with other 1080p, Snapdragon 805 smart phones of the time. Are they? No. In fact, Motorola is already selling their phones cheaper at full retail and on contract than comparable phones out there.

Yet the Nexus 5 had flagship specs when it was released with a very affordable price point. I'm pretty sure the market price for the S5 is right along at the $450 mark. Second hand you can probably get it a little cheaper.

Okay, so a few things: 1. The Nexus 5 was also sold at a subsidized price by Google. The point of the Nexus program for a couple of years was to sell super cheap flagship phones at no profit margin whatsoever. That's not Motorola's goal right now. 2. The official price for the S5 is still at 600 bucks for the 16 GB version. 3. New and used phones are apples and oranges. It's like me walking into a Ford dealership and saying "Well, the used 2013 Fiesta is 10,000 dollars, so that's what I should pay for the brand new 2015 Fiesta!" Is it really that difficult to admit you're trying to hold Motorola to unrealistic expectations?

If that is not Motorola's goal, then their Moto X should be priced at 6+ bills... The goal of the Nexus program WAS (and should have remained) "to sell super 'cheap' flagships at [a lower] profit margin" so that developers would test and expand the platform. I don't think "cheap" is the right word, maybe affordable. And you can bet your life even at that price point there was a profit margin.

I'm not trying to hold Motorola to unrealistic expectations. I Just expect a reasonably priced phone based on the specs provided. 1. You mean unsubsidized. Google wanted to sell a truly unlocked phone without a contract. 2. The S5 has slightly better specs and is waterproof. 3. You talk about apples and oranges yet you used a lemon as an example.

Definitely would have loved to see this for the Nexus 6... And would love to see HTC getting just as aggressive with Moto for the M8. Will wait it out with a Nexus 5 en route to Lollipop (within the week.)

Damn, so 2 360's is 499.98 and I can't use the $140 coupon because of one penny.

I think they sell screen protectors for the Moto 360. Just stick one of those in your cart, even if you're not going to use it, and you should be eligible for the $140 discount...

Wait im confused. Nexus 6 is not included on republic wireless only. But how about the open line one?

11. Sniggly

The Nexus 6 isn't included at all. The 2014 X isn't included if you're trying to buy it for Republic Wireless.

Yup I missed read it.. oh well. I still wonder when is the 64GB will be back in stock for the N6. I really want one

17. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Motorola and Google need to improve their inventory measures.

Yeah, a Nexus 6 around 500-550 would be more pallatable, moving on now.
