Motorola Will Spread Some Valentine's Love With $140 Off A Moto X

Chocolates, roses, and diamonds are the go-to gift items for Valentine's Day, but if you're looking to shake things up, Motorola's making it easy to gift your significant other a smartphone next month. Or give to yourself -- either way, the deal is for $140 off a purchase of $499.99 (or more) or $50 off a purchase of $249.99 on Motorola's website.

You'll need a promo code to take advantage of the sweet savings, which Motorola will begin handing out next Monday, February 2 at 11 AM Central. Once you have your promo code, you can apply it towards various Motorola devices and accessories, including the Moto X (2nd Gen.) and Moto 360 -- just toss them into your virtual cart and apply the code before February 14 at 10:59 PM Central.

To get your promo code, you'll need to register with Motorola (click here). Once you've forked over your contact information, Motorola will send you a unique, one-time promo code. Alternately, you can skip registering and still save some money, just not as much. Without the promo code, Motorola will shave $100 offer purchases of $499.99 and up, and $35 off a purchase of $249.99.

There are some exclusions to aware of. Specifically, the offer does not apply to the Nexus 6, Moto X (2nd Gen.) on Republic Wireless, and the Extended Service Plan. You're also limited to two devices among the Moto X (2nd. Gen.), Moto G (2nd Gen.), Moto G 4G LTE (1st Gen.), Moto E., and Moto 360.

Oh, and a protip from the romantics at HotHardware -- in our experience, it's best to also include at least one of the old standbys (chocolates, roses, or diamonds) with your gift. Trust us on this one.
