    I just got these:
    http://www.amazon.com/Aduro-MEMBRAN...qid=1347691305&sr=8-8&keywords=aduro+iphone+5

    for $3.99 (when adding to cart) because I want to keep my dad's screen in good condition, sometimes he tosses it in the same pocket as his keys.

    Might try it out on mine too. If it has 'orange peel' or 'rainbow effect' at all, or effects clarity noticeably, gonna tear it right off mine.

    Got this TPU smoke case:

    http://www.amazon.com/Accessories-P...91427&sr=8-2&keywords=minisuit+iphone+5+smoke

    for $6 shipped

    And now considering getting a bumper from poetic

    for around $6 shipped.

    Then that might be it until a good amount of cases are out. But what do you think, should I go for the bumper as well?

    :D

    I got a bumper (with metal buttons) and a smoke gray TPU case off eBay. Less than $6 shipped for both.

    10 screen protectors for $4.5 shipped too. I've always preferred the cheap ones off ebay over Zagg etc as 1) no orange peel and 2) I can get 60 for the price of 1.

    So far I have order the Tough and the Pop from Case-Mate and they will both be here before launch day. Still debating on which Otterbox to get and that will determine which screen protector I decide to go with.

    Your wish is my command...

    Screen protectors, 5x for $2.11 shipped
    (bought 2 sets for a total of 10- I plan on cutting a few up to protect the small bits of glass on the back of the phone, as rear protectors don't seem to be available yet)

    Translucent gray TPU case, $1.98 shipped

    Black bumper with metal buttons, $3.99 shipped

    Orange/Green/White/Pink Bumpers also available, but I always go with black as the other colors discolor really easily (even with the real Apple bumpers, even more so with these fakes).

    It's actually fairly easy to search for cheap iP5 cases- search for iPhone 5G (yes- 5G - otherwise you just get a bunch of listings for the 4S and '5x etc etc') then add whatever it is that you want ('tpu case', 'screen protector', etc), then organize by Price + Shipping: lowest first.
    The ones listed above are the result of half an hour of searching, looking for the cheapest available on eBay at the time ;) (there might be some cheaper listings uploaded between then and now, of course...)

    All ship from HK, have fun waiting. I ordered the bunch of cases in hopes that at least one arrives by the time I have my iPhone 5 next Friday.

    Nice! Just ordered a green bumper and the gray TPU case. I passed on the screen protectors just because I can't tell how the openings are cut on them. Now to wait for knockoff lightning cables to become available...

    No problem, glad to help.

    Thanks, I will have fun, given how I live in HK. FWIW, plenty of cases on eBay that ship from NA for under $5 too.

    Why'd you remove the Monoprice bumper you were originally considering from the OP?

    I was gonna say unless you live in hong kong.

    Sweet deal dude! You have access to so many cheap cases with quick shipping! Jealous

    Roved mono price bumper because I ordered the poetic Borderline bumper instead

    In addition to poetic atmosphere

    Ah I see. Not in HK atm so I'll be out of a case till I return anyways... might as well pick one up from a US/Canada based seller too. Such a shame that Amazon.com doesn't ship to Canada since Amazon.ca is completely devoid of any iP5 cases :(

    Guess eBay is still my only choice. Might grab this?

    I did too... I got 2 phones on the way,black n white.
    I'm not sure if the hubby will use a case, but I got extra room in the junk drawer if he doesn't.....and I have a hard time passing up a bargain!

    Got one Poetic Up-Tempo Bumper With Leather Grip Case (looks like a 2fer deal)
    and a couple each of the Poetic Borderline Bumper cases, and Poetic Atmosphere cases
