Looking for a killer deal on the new Moto X? Amazon is currently offering the black leather model with 16GB of storage for free when you take out a new two-year contract on AT&T, while the black resin model will cost you just $1.

In comparison, the white and bamboo Moto X with 16GB of storage is priced at $69.99 on a two-year contract, so you’re saving almost $70 by choosing what many would consider the more attractive leather model.

Unfortunately, the same deal cannot currently be had with Verizon. Amazon only offers the bamboo and resin models on Big Red at the moment, and they’re priced at $1 and $79.99 respectively.

These are pretty terrific price tags for a handset like the new Moto X, which packs a 5.2-inch 1080p display, a super speedy Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera. You’re also getting a device that’s guaranteed an Android 5.0 Lollipop upgrade soon after Google makes the software available to consumers next month.

It might not be quite as impressive as the new Nexus 6, but it’s nowhere near as pricey, either. What’s more, the new Moto X has received rave reviews since making its debut this summer, with many calling it the best Android phone you can buy right now.
