Last Chance Offer: Some tips to help you snag a $349 Moto X today (Update: Sold out!)

Motorola is ending its big promotion on the Moto X today, dropping the price down to a low $349. Sales start at Noon EST with the handset being offered on a first come, first served basis. Read on for some tips  to help make the buying process as easy as possible.

Motorola has changed things around since last week’s Cyber Monday sale caused its servers to go belly up. As a result, Moto X buyers won’t have to deal with a glitchy website as they race to configure their phone and head to checkout. Instead, customers will simply register on the site with their name and email, and a promo code will be sent to that email within a few hours. Customers will have one week to redeem the code and design their phone.

The promo code will be entered during the checkout process and will automatically take $150 off an order. This allows customers to buy a 16GB or 32GB handset for a discounted price. Once that first $150 off code is entered, customers can add a second code (THANKS) to take an additional 30% off accessories. Some good news if you still have a Moto X in your shopping cart from last Monday. You still have to register to get a promo code like everybody else, but once you receive your code, you can go immediately to checkout. You don’t have to redesign your phone again.

Straight from Motorola, here are the steps you’ll need to follow to grab your Moto X phone later today:

  • Go to  and register for the promotion starting at noon EST on December 9th. You will know right away if quantities are still available — there will be  a”Reserve” button if inventory is still available.
  • Once registered, you will be emailed a confirmation email followed by a promo code within a few hours. This code is active for one week.
  • Go to Moto Maker and design your phone within the one week window (take your time and have fun!).
  • At checkout, enter your one-time promo code to receive $150 off the no-contract price in the shopping cart. (Your code only works once and for one phone.)
  • Submit your order to get rocking with your custom Moto X in time for the holidays. Moto Maker will provide an estimated delivery date while you design your product and again at checkout. You will also receive an email when we start assembling your device as well as when it ships.

This new checkout process eased the burden on Motorola’s servers during the first round of sales on Wednesday, December 4th. The reservation process went smoothly, but things moved very quickly with inventory selling out within 9 minutes. Make sure you are ready at Motorola’s website a bit before noon, because if you miss out today, there is no second chance. Do you plan on buying a Moto X today?

Update: The Moto X promotion codes are sold out. It took about 10 minutes for all of them to disappear. Did you grab one before they disappeared?
