Motorola Offers Free Chromecast with Moto X Off-Contract Purchase

The promotional deal is available until January 14

Motorola has just kicked off a new promotional deal for the Moto X. Customers who purchase the smartphone will now receive a free Chromecast worth $35 (€25).

However, the deal only applies to outright purchases of Motorola Moto X 16GB and 32GB, which are now available for $400 (€295) and $450 (€330), respectively.

According to Motorola, a free Chromecast will be available with each Moto X outright purchase until January 14. Keep in mind that in order to benefit from the promo, you will need to use promo code STREAM after you have added the Google Chromecast to your cart.

Although it may not sound like such a great deal, in fact this is very close to Motorola's botched deal on the Moto X that went live a few weeks ago and saw the smartphone discounted to only $350 (€255) outright.

It may be just a coincidence, but it's worth mentioning that the promotional deal ends on the same day that Motorola's confirmed press event is set to take place in the UK.

The US-based handset maker is expected to expand the availability of Moto X in Europe and the official announcement may go live on January 14.

On the other hand, Motorola may just release another member of the Moto X family aimed at the European market and perhaps other regions as well. A tablet is in the cards as well, though it's less likely for the company to release a new slate.

Moto X is one of the few smartphones that run Google's latest Android 4.4 KitKat operating system and will remain so for several weeks at least.

All US-based operators carrying the Moto X have already offered the KitKat upgrade, which makes it an even better deal for those looking for a high-end Android smartphone powered by the latest software.
