Motorola is offering a new promotion that saves you some money on a Moto X and lets you try before you buy. Sort of. The promo is centered around avoiding contracts, so it allows you to go to Moto Maker, design a Moto X and order it without a contract for just $299 (after a $50 rebate). But if you’re not satisfied with your new phone, you can return it for a full refund within 30 days. If it’s just the design that’s bothering you, you can have one do-over to redesign a new Moto X in Moto Maker.
The deal is smart and appealing. Once they get a chance to try it out for a few weeks, most customers will fall in love with the Moto X and decide to keep it. And if you don’t end up liking it, you can easily return it for a full refund, making it completely risk-free. Just remember that the promo is only available for off-contract Moto Xs, so you’ll need to make sure you have an active carrier SIM card in order to fully use it.
