Motorola offering Moto X “try before you buy” program for June 8th, also adds 64GB option

Moto X
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.

    June 9th, not the 8th. It’s on the front page of Really?

    Why not offer 64GB as an option at the initial release? I guess better late than never.

      It was Google using the phone to push their cloud services rather than selling the phone as a phone with local storage.

        I agree. This is and will be Google’s downfall. Most, even normal users, want local storage to be accessed any time they wish…even when the internet of things goes kaput.

    They are just clearing stocks for moto X+1. I’m waiting for their new phone with renewed hope since they are moving assembly to china, that means it is entirely possible that they will bring moto maker to new countries.

    No Canada? Don’t care. Make us care, Motorola.

    64 GB just released for a year old phone? Little late Motorola. Just make us a new phone already please!

    They’re already gone. I smell a rip off.
