Moto X now available for $99.99 from Moto Maker, Sprint and U.S. CellularAlex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
Remember that rumored Moto X price cut that we heard about way back in August? Looks like that leak was legit, as Motorola's Moto Maker website is now advertising the Moto X with a starting price of $99.99. That means that shoppers can snag a customized 16GB Moto X for AT&T by handing over a Benjamin. Meanwhile, the 32GB AT&T Moto X is available for $149.
just in case those price cuts aren't enough to get you to pull the proverbial trigger, the Moto Maker website is also offering a free Motorola Skip unlocking accessory with the purchase of any custom Moto X. Oh, and any Moto Maker orders of $75 or more will receive free two-day shipping, too.
There's some good news today for Moto X-curious consumers not on AT&T as well. Motorola's latest handset has also received price cuts from Sprint and U.S. Cellular, both of which are now selling the 16GB Moto X for $99.99 with a two-year commitment. Customers on those carriers don't yet have access to the Moto Maker customization tool, though, meaning that their color options are limited to black or white. U.S. Cellular is also offering a $75 switcher discount to new customers that knocks the 16GB Moto X's price to $24.99 on contract.
Price cuts happen fairly frequently in the mobile world, and so it's not entirely surprising to see the Moto X being discounted by AT&T, Sprint and U.S. Cellular a couple of months after it hit store shelves. That doesn't mean that these discounts aren't welcome, though, especially for AT&T customers that can snag a customized Moto X for $100. Motorola's device may not be the freshest Android handset on the block any longer, but it's still a respectable device that just got a pretty significant software update, so now may be the time to buy if you've been on the Moto X fence.
