What information do I need to give to Motorola to be eligible for the Jelly Bean rebate?


You'll need a valid proof of purchase of the Moto X. A valid proof of purchase includes a copy of the Moto X receipt from your My Account portal, copy of UPC code from the Moto X box and the Moto X IMEI number. The IMEI number can be found on your Moto X by going to Settings → About Phone → Status. You'll also need to send your DEFY XT with the above info. One phone should be included in each postmarked envelope.


Note: Be sure to keep the box from your Moto X for the UPC and MEID HEX number. Republic will not be able to provide the UPC if you no longer have your Moto X box.



What condition does the Motorola DEFY XT smartphone have to be in to qualify?


Some products may contain physical or functional defects and still qualify. However, in order to ensure you qualify for the program, your used DEFY XT smartphone must be in working order.



Do I need to mail in the accessories with my DEFY XT smartphone as well?


While you can send in the accessories as well, it's not required in order to receive the Jelly Bean Rebate.  Accessories include things like power cords, chargers, batteries, connector cables, holders, sleeves, and protectors.



Do I need to remove my personal information from my DEFY XT?


Please clear any personal data from your phone before mailing it to Motorola.  Also, perform a factory reset and don't forget to remove your microSD card.



Who pays for shipping when I send my DEFY XT to Motorola?


The shipping label printed off the Motorola website will be prepaid.  However, you'll need to provide your own packaging for the phone.




What happens to the DEFY XT once I mail it in?


Motorola will process the smartphone for resale and/or recycling.



How long does it take for me to get my Visa gift card?


Up to eight weeks.


Note: The Visa gift card is mailed by Clover Wireless. The only reference to Motorola is underneath the "Activate now" sticker attached to the card (per a tip from one of our Community members).



Is there an expiration date on the Visa gift card?


The Visa gift card is valid for up to 12 months, however funds do not expire and may be available after card expiration date.
