I was in Best Buy this morning and they had a whole area empty were cases are located. There were labels on the displays and it looked liked iPhone 6 and 6 plus cases were going to be stocked there.

I was a the local Verizon store and saw a few iPhone 6 cases but nothing for 6 plus.

Anyone else see cases in stores yet?

Carrier stores have been loading up cases already. Best Buy isn't until tomorrow though, which is weird because previously they would have cases out before anyone else did.

I bought a store brand 6 plus case at best buy in Addison, TX yesterday... Just depends on your store's delivery schedule...

I just bought a cheap Insignia case for the 4.7-inch phone from Best Buy. Solid black, no fuss. They had a lot of cases for both models of the phone on the shelves.

I just called our local Best Buy and was told they won't be putting out their iPhone 6/6+ cases until tomorrow. So lame.

Gonna have to pick up a case locally tomorrow since the ones I have on order won't come in till maybe next week. The official Apple cases seem a bit too pricey for what they are so I hope the other retailers have a good selection.

I haven't seen any in-store cases yet. But I have everything I'm getting from Amazon. I got an OctoArmor case, and a Tech Armor screen protector. That's all for me for now.

Right here bro. I picked up the Tech Armor Tempered Glass protector for $10.99 off Amazon. I paid for the prime $3.99 overnight shipping so it arrives tomorrow, and the same with my Spigen Touch Armor. $35 for both with prime overnight shipping. Not bad eh?

I went to my local Best Buy yesterday and they were damn near cleaned out of cases for the iPhone 6. They still had a few for the 6+, but for my 6 model, it was extremely slim pickings.

Me too, but the Tech Armor Tempered Glass screen protector disappointed me.

It struggles to stay near the edge.

Really debating on ordering a iSmooth or Spigen and returning this Tech armor one as defective.

It let dirt get under my screen near the edges.

It will probably scratch the hell out of the screen now.

Yes, the Best Buy near me had them in black and purple. It looks very cheap imo. The functionality might be ok..it just opens but don't have any magnetic to keep it close when you put your phone in. Very flimsy as well.

Cool... pass then. I ordered the Apple Leather case but now I'm reading about bubbling... :-/

I went to Apple this weekend and they didn't have any silicone cases so I ordered Speigen case on Amazon in the meantime. I purchased two leather cases last year and vowed to never get another one.

Best buy case prices always seem to be $15 higher than they should be, not including the official apple cases, which are the normal price

Picked up the Insignia case as per a forum member's recommendation. Thin, and offers decent amount of protection. Just hope it doesn't turn yellow.
