EDIT: Deal is probably dead for good. Ben's Outlet increased the price to $4.99 a week or so ago after slickdeals put it on its front page, so I'm sure people went crazy on these things.

I was just checking to see today on Ben's Outlet if they still had the Verizon tablet sleeve I bought (in a pair) many months ago and to my surprise, they still have them, discounted to $1 with free shipping for BF! If you're looking for a decent sleeve, this is probably one of the better quality ones at under ~$15-20, the kicker being that it's only a buck. It has been going in and out of stock (b/t OOS and 5%), so if you're at all interested, hop on it ASAP. I ordered a couple of extra for my warchest. :cool:

Yeah, no problem. I'm sure most people find it hard to take seriously at that price, but it's actually a killer deal for an incredibly decent sleeve. I remember seeing these in the Verizon store when I bought my iPhone last year and I couldn't figure out why anyone would pay $50 for a sleeve (had just bought an HP TouchPad so I was on the lookout for a case). Well, apparently, I wasn't the only one as I think they discontinued it last year shortly after I had seen it in the store and sold off bulk stock to 1saleaday/ben's outlet (hence, they come without retail packaging). I thought they were OOS for good last night, but I guess they keep trickling them back into stock (back to 1% at the time of this post).

I got one of these awhile back and they're actually pretty good. They fit an iPad 3 with Smart Cover perfectly.

Check back tomorrow. I'm sure they'll permanently run out of stock eventually (maybe this was it), but this is the third time I've seen them go OOS then add another 5% back onto the website since Friday.

The deal is still alive and kicking. I guess slickdeals never latched onto this, else it would have been sucked dry a while ago.

I have an ipad with a smart cover and speck smart shell on the back; I put that setup in this sleeve when I leave the house and it works well.

From the look of this massive thread, slickdeals picked up on this yesterday:

I ordered mine the Saturday following Black Friday and it arrived on Monday of this week, so 6 business days. I don't think the tracking info ever showed up. Shipped from Florida.

So from 11/23 - 12/3. Decent wait time. Well still considering the $1 price tag at the time, worth the wait.

Dropped an order on the 4th so maybe before XMas I'd guess depending how congested the shipping companies get.

Also... OCN ftw :3

Received my two sleeves today, as well as my Brydge keyboard! I can happily report that the Verizon sleeve is a nice snug fit for the iPad and Brydge keyboard. I couldn't be happier and the quality of this sleeve is top notch!

So I ordered 2 of these on 11/30. Got an email confirmation immediately afterward. Still no shipping confirmation, yet a friend of mine who ordered like a week after me got a shipping confirmation today. WTF??? I sent an email 12/9, no reply and they do not list a phone number to contact them. Anybody have any suggestions?

Same here, I have shipping information, it just doesnt update at all.

It says that a label has been created, but once they get the package it will ship.

Its been like that after I ordered 11/27.

Idk whats going on, lets see today.

They are a little slow to say the least, but a great deal!

I guess I should update the OP. They jacked up the price a few days ago after slickdeals found out about this and people started buying them up. You may have missed the boat. :(
