Fancy a customizable Motorola Moto X in a conventional white or black flavor but hesitated to score it thus far because you felt it was pricey? Then it’s time to rejoice, ladies and gents, because Best Buy has lowered the on-contract pricing bar to $99.99 with your carrier of choice.
Namely, the Moto X can be had through BB on AT&T, Verizon or Sprint, all three deals being valid for both new and upgrading customers.
Meanwhile, Amazon, which was actually the first retailer to slash Moto X’s price to 100 bucks, continues to be fairly stingy with the Verizon-branded 4.7-incher (up for grabs starting at $150) and AT&T version (available for $180 and up), but as far as Sprint users go, they’re even more generous than Best Buy.
The black and white Moto X with 24-month agreements on the Now Network will only require the shelling out of 79.99, though the promo stands only if you pen a new contract. Otherwise, X’s price blows up to a whopping 150 bucks.
To sum up, Sprint fans need to pay Amazon a visit if they want to save a few clams, whereas Ma Bell and Big Red aficionados should choose to take their business to Best Buy. That is, if you dig Motorola’s not-quite-outstanding-but-still-darn-solid handheld, running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, packing dual-core power, a massive 2,200 mAh battery and 720p display.
