Motorola offering Moto X “try before you buy” program for June 8th, also adds 64GB option
The Motorola Moto X+1 is due out sometime towards the end of the summer, but just because a successor is right around the corner doesn’t mean the original Moto X isn’t still worth picking up.
In an effort to attract more customers, Motorola is offering the opportunity to customize a Moto X to your liking using the Moto Maker on June 8th — while supplies last. They’ll then ship the phone out to you and give you 2 weeks to try out the phone, charging just $.01 up-front for the honor. Obviously if you like the phone you customized, you can keep it, pay the full price and you’ll even get 30% off on accessories. If you decide you don’t want to buy it, you simply return the phone when the time is up and you owe nothing else.
Motorola is also offering a small change to the Moto Maker: you can soon order a 64GB model. While we had heard rumors of the 64GB model for a while, Motorola has now confirmed the new storage option will roll out in time for their only-day only “try for $.99” offer and will cost $100 more than the 16GB base version. The 64GB model will be available for Moto X handsets on all major networks with the exception of Verizon.
Bottom-line, if you’ve been thinking about getting the Moto X, now could be the perfect time to do it.
