But don’t worry — you can already buy the promo codes on eBay, and there are plenty of them available.
It’s unclear how many handsets Motorola allocated to the sale, but it’s clear that a fairly large number of people obtained codes for the sole purpose of selling them on to make a quick buck. Type “Moto X promo” into eBay and you’ll find a surprisingly long list of results.
Some “Buy It Now” listings are going for as little as $10, while others are hoping to fetch as much as $50. You may be able to get a code even cheaper if you try your luck in an auction, though; I had my eye on one that just ended at $5.50.
It’s worth noting that these codes were valid for 7 days from the date they were issued, so you only have until Monday, December 16, to get your hands on one and place your order for a $350 Moto X. Whatever you do, don’t buy a code after that date, because you will not be able to use it.
It’s certainly a shame that so many people claimed these codes just to sell them on, but it’s not a bad way to get your hands on one if you missed out on Monday. Even if you have to pay $20 for it, your new Moto X will still cost you a great deal less than it normally would.
