The Moto X might be getting on toward its twilight years, but it's still a great phone with killer features. Motorola's promised Mother's Day sale is active, which means you can get this device for a mere $299.99 for the 16GB version.

Unlike past promotions, today's deal is automatic and requires no wacky coupon codes. Just head over to the Motorola site and choose between the Moto Maker 16GB ($299.99), Moto Maker 32GB ($324.99), or the Developer Edition (also $324.99). Adding a wood back to one of the Moto Maker editions still costs an extra $25, though. If you do pick one up, Motorola is even throwing in a free Skip NFC unlock device.

This deal is only live through 11:59pm ET tonight. This might be your last chance to justifiably buy a Moto X before the anticipation of a refresh forces you to wait it out.

    It's a great phone, but even at this price, I'm not sure why anyone would buy this when 1), A new one is coming this summer and 2), The Nexus 5/1+1 aren't that much more expensive. Just my 2 cents.

      this is why I bought it. my note 3 is just too big to take on bike rides and to use at the gym. I am in my car for work most of the time and the truly touch less controls would be a great benefit. the next moto x wont be out until probably September. the bugs wont be worked out for another month or 2. switching to a small phone now at a cheaper price will help me decide if I can adjust to the smaller style and less features. lets say 4 months the new phone comes out. By then I will know if a smaller handset is for me. I sell it for $100 quick and the loss comes out to $2 a day. I got my use out of the phone and I will be sure that I am ready to pay full price for the new one. Also I will buy an 8in tablet with an spen for work, books,movies and games. the note 3 was my phone and tablet replacement but it wasn't big enough to fit all of my needs.

    For me the MotoX=Touchless Control, the best! I am constantly tweaking my Note 3, but it's never going to be as good as the real thing. S for Switch Voice wakes my Note to Google Voice Search, "always listening" style... And now with Touchless Notifications I can have something like the "What's up" feature too. Only I have to say "Show what's up"
