If you don’t get a promo code, Motorola is still docking $100 off of a $499.99 purchase, or $35 off of a $249.99 purchase, for everyone. The promo code discount is quite a bit bigger, though, so if you’re interested, hit the link below to register. Motorola is only giving away 200,000 codes, so the sooner, the better. Read more
