    So I went to Best Buy yesterday to buy a Zagg Invisible Shield HD as well as the Rocketfish see through case. Well the case was supposed to be 24.99 and the Shield was also 24.99 so one would think that the total should have been $50ish with tax. Well apparently Best Buy has this thing where if you buy a case and shield at the same time you get 50% off. Ended up only paying $29 for the pair. So yeah good way to get both things for pretty cheap or buy both and return one for a nice discount.

    Is it just the front Invisible Shield HD or is the back included as well? Also, do they have this advertised? Or is it figure it out at the register?

    They advertise it at mine and I believe it's only the front protector or at least that's all that came with mine

    Yeah it's the front. It wasn't advertised at mine but you can just ask to make sure.

    Considering the mark up on those items, BB still made $20 profit.

    well considering the cheapest I could find the HD zagg for iPhone 5 on amazon was 10 bucks I think they make a lot less profit then you think.

    Amazon probably made $8 profit on that.

    Don't really know what you point is. Obviously best buy and amazon need to make a profit. If you want to buy something at cost go to the factory that produces it and bribe a worker. Considering that I've always had really good experiences with my Zagg shields I'm more than happy paying 14 bucks for something that has always left me with a prestine iPhone.

    I also like Zagg shields. Zagg gets a lot less of the profits compared to what BB and Amazon get from the sale. On a $20 dollar item, zagg may get $4, while BB takes home $16.

    Yes, they will charge same price on website as BB charges in stores, but BB and AMAZON, demand a much larger share of the revenue in order to sell in their stores or website. The actual cost of making and packaging each shield, is probably less than $1. So there is plenty of profit to go around for everyone.

    I've kind of lost sight of exactly what your point in the matter is. If Zagg would match best buy's price I'd buy from them.

    Noticed this at best buy today, the sign says you can get a charge, case or screen protector. What charger are they talking about?

    They probably mean the lightning cord.

    Why buy a invisible shield from best buy when they charge an additional $5 more than Zagg themselves charge on their website
