Has anyone received a contract offer that did not include moving expenses? How much were you offered for moving expenses?

I'm not sure what you mean by "contract" offer, but I received 5 job offers. IIRC, 2 paid no relocation expenses, and the other amounts varied dramatically. $2500, $5100, and $5900 (higher amounts were for private universities, smaller was for a regional state school).
For a VAP, I got 1500. For a TT, I got 2k for either moving or start-up.
at an RI private TT position I received 10% of my salary for moving expenses (on a reimbursement basis).
Some states have laws limiting or excluding moving expenses. I got $500.00 for an interstate move to a state university halfway across the country. I showed the chair my moving expenses (about $10,000) after I arrived, and he gave me another $500.00 under the table, but I had to pay the rest myself. I recommend selling everything you have if you're taking on a long-distance move!
R1 private TT, direct bill the total sum of moving costs to them (so whatever the move costs, it's covered).
