Unlocked Moto E5 Play drops to an irresistible $49.99 at Woot for one day only
Motorola sells a lot of decent low-cost smartphones, many of which frequently get even cheaper than usual at third-party retailers like Best Buy under certain conditions and with various strings attached. That's actually not the case of the GSM unlocked Moto E5 Play right now at Woot, which requires absolutely no jumping through hoops of any sort at an unbeatable $49.99 price.
This is a brand-new and unused handset you're looking at here, backed by a standard one-year Motorola warranty, and it ships at no additional charge nationwide for Amazon Prime members. In fact, your Woot orders are fulfilled by parent company Amazon itself, which means the e-commerce giant is handling not just deliveries, but storage and packing as well.
You're obviously not bound to any particular carrier after purchasing this incredibly affordable E5 Play, which you can freely activate on AT&T, T-Mobile, as well as smaller prepaid GSM operators. Granted, the 2018-released 5.2-incher is no powerhouse by any stretch of the imagination, but at a measly 50 bucks, it arguably offers excellent value with a conventional 16:9 HD display, quad-core processing speed, "all-day" battery, a water-repellent design, rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage space, and microSD support.
You probably can't do much better at this price point, at least not without signing a monthly installment plan, activating the phone right away on a certain network, or settling for a refurbished unit. Motorola, for instance, continues to charge a full $129.99 for an unlocked Moto E5 Play, while Best Buy lets you lower that to $79.99 if you choose AT&T as your wireless service provider straight off the bat. Just keep in mind Woot's bargain is a 24 hour-only thing.
