Verizon Deluxe Tablet Sleeve $0.99!!! - Dead-

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.

Here is a mini-endorsement I wrote on OCN:

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.

Must have ruined your day.

For some reason, I'm tempted to buy like 5 more. I need to find more friends with iPads.

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.
