Caseformers Glaze Case for iPhone 7/7 Plus for $3

Let’s say you pay $969 for a fully loaded iPhone 7 Plus — you should probably shell out another few bucks to keep it safe. HandHeldItems offers the Caseformers Glaze Case for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in Clear Red, Clear Black or Full Black for $3.25 with free shipping. That’s $17 off list and the lowest total price we could find. It features inside bumper grooves for protection from drops and scratches. Deal ends October 21.

That’s $90 under the last low price we saw, $86 less than what you’d pay for a new one, and the lowest total price we’ve seen for this phone from Sprint. Note: A 90-day warranty applies, but it’s unclear who covers it.
