Save $100 on Moto 360 and Android Cell Phone - Best Buy 2015-04-13 11-24-57

If you’re in the market for a new smartwatch, now might be a pretty good time to get the Moto 360. In a new deal today from Best Buy, the retailer is offering $100 savings when you purchase both Motorola’s Android Wear smartwatch and a new Android phone. Considering that the Moto 360 is already on sale at Best Buy—and nothing in the small print says the two offers are incompatible—this probably means you can effectively get a Moto 360 for $79.99 (and it looks like you can get another $25 off if you can use the current .edu promotion).

Sadly, this deal is in-store only, meaning you’ll need to use Best Buy’s store locator to find a brick-and-mortar location that has both the Moto 360 and the Android phone you’d like to buy in-stock. It’s not clear if there are any requirements on what kind of Android smartphone you buy (although most phones on most carriers will probably qualify), and Best Buy says that both must be purchased at the same time and on the same receipt to receive the $100 savings.

On the other hand, it’s worth noting that this might be a sign that right now is absolutely the wrong time to get a Moto 360. The first-gen smartwatch from Motorola was released in fall of last year, but that doesn’t mean the company isn’t working on bringing the next iteration to market sometime soon. All of the price cuts and deals we’ve been seeing lately seem to suggest that this might be the case.
