Chances of Upgrade Promo for Moto X Owners
Is there any chance that Motorola will offer a promotion for Moto X owners to upgrade to a Moto X? On one hand, I love my Moto X. But I bought my Sprint Moto X on launch day from Sprint, meaning: (1) I did not get to customize on Moto Maker; (2) I did not receive any promos -- no Moto Skip; (3) no screen repair. Even worse, shortly after I bought the phone, the price almost immediately tanked.
In fact, Motorola does not even place a high resale value on its own phones. A Moto X on the Mototradein website is worth $60. A Samsung Galaxy S4, meanwhile, is $120. An iPhone5 is worth $170. And even an iPhone 4S is worth $80.
All this to say that I need to think twice about shelling out a lot of money for another Moto X -- some kind of incentive would help. And there is some precedent here - Apple provided a credit to early iPhone buyers.
What are the odds that Moto tries to leverage its existing user base with some kind of promotional effort?

Little chance IMO.

I would recommend waiting 1-2 months to see how the x+1 I'd received. If it is a runaway success it might hold value on swappa and won't see huge sales. If its a niche phone like the x it'll probably be on sale before Xmas for $100 off or more.
