We just received word that Motorola plans to increase the price of their CLS Series business radios. As of April 1, 2013, the prices on Motorola CLS radios will go up an additional $20 per unit. The CLS1110, which sold for $139, will be priced at $159 and the CLS1410, which was $159, will retail for $179.
If you are planning to purchase Motorola CLS radios for your operations or add to an existing fleet, it may be wise to do it by March 31, 2013, before the price increase goes into effect. It may save you some serious cash, especially on large purchases.
There is another good reason to buy now, before the price increase. Motorola is currently running a Free Radio promotion at Buy Two Way Radios: Buy six radios, get one FREE! For every six radios purchased, you will receive one free radio from Motorola, with a maximum of 10 free radios on a maximum purchase of 60 units!
Of course, you can still take advantage of the free radio promotion after the price increase; the promotion will continue until June 30, 2013. However, given the fact that the cost of each radio will be $20 more after April 1, the increase will likely negate any additional savings you may receive from the promotion at the current prices. Considering this, a purchase now may be a real bargain in the long run.
