Motorola Moto G Power Cell Phone with 64GB Memory (Unlocked) - $199 ($149 w/ PM *YMMV* or $149 w/ Activation)

Best Buy has the Moto G Power phone on sale for $149 with activation or $199 without activation.

That is the deal. Period. (Actually, right now you can also get it for $199 from Motorola, Amazon or B&H as well.)

This next part is YMMV. Try to refrain from downvoting if this doesn't work for you.

Target may sell you the phone for $149. I highlighted BB above because f you ask Target to PM the $149 price at BB they may do it even though $149 requires activation. If the agent doesn't look carefully it's easy to think that $149 is the OTD price at BB, so they match it. It is actually not *that* YMMV because I had two agents agree to PM $149. In fact, the second agent really screwed up because instead of matching $149 he gave me a $149 discount making my price $100 (This is not part of the deal! lol).

I did this via Target chat but you can try to PM in-store or by calling 800-591-3869.

Anyway, if you ask for $149 the worst that can happen is they will agree to match the $199 price and you can decide if you want to buy from Target instead of one of the other stores (maybe you have Red Card).

This was my invoice:
Subtotal $249.99
Discounts -$149.99
Partial refund -$149.99
Shipping Free
Fees $1.00
Tax $23.75
Total $124.75

I just noticed I got taxed on the full pre-discount price but I'm cool with that under the circumstances. They actually adjusted the invoice after it shipped so my total is $109.50 which is correct. Pretty sweet!

I did this last night but waited to post until I got a tracking number on my order. I didn't want to risk my order being canceled because of SD effect. Hope some others are able to get the $149 PM without activation.
Good deal?

How is this a repost? Are those deals still available from yesterday? Unless I can time travel to buy yesterday deals this is a good deal in my opinion.

Thanks. It's also really worth trying to get that $149 PM if you are in on this phone. I was 2 for 2 in my chat requests.

I got one last year (different model) though and it turned out to be a dud, just died with very nominal use.But these are good line up for a cheap price.

Motorola device has bad quality.
Sure the specs are good for the price...But I think Motorola has gone to the way to make sure their phone would die after 1 year.

I remember when Google owned Motorola. The phone was built much better.
My Motorola E1 and G1 are still working.
My g4 dead after 1 year. Same as my g6. Bad Motorola.

What are you basing this one-year death rate on?

Both of my parents have had Moto G phones for years and they are going strong. Build quality is great for the price and they haven't had any issues.

Nice try bot.

Lots of sites have the phone for $199, as mentioned. Best Buy was only highlighted because it is easy to get Target to PM their $149 price without needing to activate the phone.

Can you recommend something better for $200 or less? I'm not being a smarta$$, I really want to know, need a new phone.

My G7 Power died after 14 months. So I get where he's coming from, but I don't think there's a better phone under $200 outside of a used Iphone or Galaxy phone if battery life is negotiable.

I replaced it with a G8 Power since it's a good price for what you get.

Edit: found this comment searching for G Power phones for my teenager for Christmas. Great value if it doesn't die!

Thanks! The Motos still appear to just get one android update, and most I've looked at currently have 10, so that update will be used for Android 11 this year and that's it. I'll probably end up getting one, but it would be great if I could count on one more update.
