    It states they are genuine apple covers so if it isn't it will be easy to contact eBay and get your money back. They don't mess around when someone claims an item is counterfeit. Well over 700 sold now so it would get pretty nasty if they arent

    While still a good deal, these could contain defects or be refurbished.

    "The item may be a factory second or a new, unused item with defects."

    I'm all about fakes or cheap real product. I just took my mini smart cover back r/t it's stupidly high price. Esp as the full size one is the same price.

    lol! self esteem? no problem with that:D

    ----------

    if there are defects or refurbished it has to be mentioned in the sellers description of the item otherwise ebay will side with the buyer so there is nothing to worry about...

    I bought my ipad 3/4 and mini covers thru apple online...I don't have any worries that this will be a fake...I'm sure it's a group of covers that went thru another channel besides apple retail...the price is about the cost apple has internally....I have a 18 month old grey cover that's showing some wear, we'll see if this is the replacement....

    oh, my bad! I thought you were the one who bought 16 of the moko covers for the mini in the thread i started about it being $1.98. Guess I had you mixed up with someone else...anyhow, the wake/sleep function didnt work so bcs through amazon was replacing them with new ones at no charge and letting people keep the old case. whoever the guy was that ordered 16 probably ended up with 32 moko mini cases for $32 total:eek:

    It is in the description. That's where I got it from.

    I can't find it. I see the paragraph you are referring to up in the item condition section which states new other but that is the generic description for a new other item and the seller must list it any defects,etc in the actual item description below. I cannot find where it states anything like that in the item description unless I am missing it somewhere...

    It's under 'Item Specifics'. Since the listing states that, you can't return it if it shows up scratched or something like that. It's still a good deal since you're saving like 25 bucks, but I'd rather buy one from Apple to insure it looks new.

    Exactly. That is not the description...if you read the rest it states:

    Item specifics
    Condition:
    New other (see details): A new, unused item with absolutely no signs of wear. The item may be missing the original packaging, or in the original packaging but not sealed. The item may be a factory second or a new, unused item with defects. See the seller’s listing for full details and description of any imperfections.See all condition definitions
    UPC: 885909470402

    Imperfections have to be listed by the seller and they are not. Seller states item is new without the box included and at the end of the description goes on to state that if defective they will replace.

    Defective Item
    An item that was discovered to be defective upon receipt can be replaced with the same model only.

    No matter, if you would rather buy from apple you should do so, but these are not defects and if it arrives defective the buyer will win the dispute..

    That is the description. Don't get me wrong, eBay almost always sides with the buyer. I personally still think the seller is covered since it is listed under the description. It says they'll will accept returns if it is defective, but it's safe to assume that means broken, not scratched up. Especially since it's mentioned that it could be a refurb or have defects.

    If you got one that has defects, all the seller has to do is point eBay to their description.

    I agree, I don't think they'll be in bad shape. I'm just stating it says they could be. It's still a steal for 13.99.

    I think now they are hoping to catch the people who are enrolled and have eBay bucks to use...I wouldn't over pay to use mine but I know of people who have just because they feel like its free money to spend..
