What’s that? You thought the $179 Moto G off-contract was already a great deal? If you’re willing to join up with Big Red, you can get an even better deal now. Verizon Wireless has officially confirmed that it will now be offering the Moto G Android smartphone for just $99.99. That’s prepaid with no contract, no strings attached.

As a quick refresher, the Moto G is the more affordable cousin of the Moto X. You get a 4.5-inch HD display, quad-core Snapdragon processor, 5MP camera and presumably 8GB of internal storage. It also comes with 50GB of Google Drive and will come preloaded with Android 4.3, though the Android 4.4 KitKat update should be right around the corner.

Of course, you’ll still need to pay for a service plan above and beyond the $100 purchase price for the phone. Verizon has plans starting at $60 per month for unlimited talk and text, plus 2GB of data. You can upgrade to 4GB for an extra ten bucks.

For the time being, the $99.99 no-contract Moto G deal is only being offered via Best Buy. If you wait until next week, Verizon itself will start selling the phone for the same price on January 9th. The only real catch is that this is the Verizon-friendly version of the Moto G, unlike the GSM-friendly version that you can get for $179/$199. Just like its GSM cousin, though, the Verizon version also does not support LTE, so you’re left with just 3G. Even so, aside from maybe the Nokia Lumia 520/521, this $100 Moto G is probably the best prepaid smartphone you can get for that kind of price.
