    Thought I'd share a deal with you guys today. Checking out slickdeals this morning and came across this. Says its 5.99 after promo code DSFYP126, originally 24.99. The quality of this looks pretty good and good reviews on Amazon too. I just ordered one in black.

    I got the Dresuit Arte series in black for my Mini. Looks like they lowered the price to $12.99. Awesome case at a $30 price point, let alone $12.99. Great quality.

    I'm always tempted to get a red case but just couldn't do it with this one...follow up if you can on your thoughts on the red once you get it, please.

    sure will. hopefully it's not a scandalous red - lol. it looks like a pinky red though. hopefully it's not. i ordered this one using my iphone and i couldn't tell how the red is and when i got home it's now looking a lot more of a pinky red.hmmm. do i order the black one also to make sure.

    UPDATE: i tried to order the black one and amazon is not accepting the code anymore. darn, i missed it.

    Is the code specific to this product or can it be used for anything on Amazon?

    code doesn't work anymore. i think it's just a couple of hours or a day deal only.

    ----------

    i have not received it yet. if i do i will let you know. the only thing i can tell you is for $5.99 shipped (regular $39.99) this is an awesome deal. i am hoping the case is as good as what the reviewers claimed it is.

    UPDATE:

    i just got my case today. i ordered the red one. they do ship fast as i got it in 3 days. for $5.99 (shipped) you can't beat this deal. the case is well packaged. quality of the case is great. i like the case and the color too. thanks OP for the heads-up. should have ordered the gray one also as a back-up. now my problem is what to do with my other mini cases as i think i will use this one from now on.

    i would say the case is not thin nor bulky. kinda in between. the best part is, this case is so light but your mini will be protected and it has 360 deg. orientation.

    Got my red one today. I like the color. It's a very well made looking product. I'm actually disappointed at how bulky and just plain large this case is compared to the several other I own. Also, is not very comfortable to hold in the folded (folio) position. Probably wont be using this as my main case, but it was a good deal and I'm glad to have it as an option.

    ----------

    Woah! Just realized the sleep/wake function does not work. Since it is advertised as working I hope the sellers will rectify the problem. Until then I'd recommend not buying.

    Hmm. I have not put it on yet. Need to check the wake thing on this case.

    Make sure you have the iPad rotated in the proper orientation in order for sleep/wake to work. I thought it wasn't working, but then realized that I had the ipad backwards (the cover was opening from left-to-right in relation to where the home button was)... spinning the mini around 180 degrees took care of that and now the sleep/wake works fine.

    I think this case is a bargain for the price. I don't know if I will use it all the time, but for the price it is great even if it is just for times I want to use the multi-angle folio.

    Yep, you were right that was my problem. You have to have it oriented with the home button on the right. It's still a bit bulky for my taste, but I agree it was a good deal.

    Mine was delivered to work on Friday but I didn't get it until today. Tried it out and it fits perfectly. I also had some issues with the sleep/wake, but after reading what some of you posted, I too had it upside down. I'll probably stick to this case until I find something I don't like about it, but so far, I like it and looks like it's built well enough to last a few drops but hope that doesn't happen.

    UPDATE: after using the Dresuit for more than 2 weeks now, i think i can safely say that i do like this case. it it light and love the red color. i used to have the folio type case but it's so heavy. my only issue is the 360deg rotation. i am thinking of maybe gluing the back so that it will not do a 360deg rotation.
