    I just got mine using this 10% off and free Fedex shipping coupon from Techbargains: tb0411u

    It came up to 80.95 all together. It looks like they normally give free screen protectors but when you add the coupon, the screen protector is taken out automatically. So it's either or. I didn't really want a screen protector so I applied the coupon!

    My Defender case on my ipad1 and it was sweet, but it was just a bit heavy. I hope this new one is lighter. I'm waiting for some reviews. Of course, this case is making it the safest case ever.

    Watched installation video on website, looks like a mini project to get it installed. And $90? Pass! :confused:

    Yeah, I like the idea of protection, but $90 is a ton of money for a case, especially one that totally ruins the look of the device. I have a Defender for my iPhone, so I can take it in the woods, etc., but I don't anticipate doing that with my iPad 2, so I'll pass.

    If putting an ipad into this case is a "project" for you, you've got some trouble ahead in life.

    Not knocking anyone who does, but I agree though.

    Almost every post in this thread has described how to get it for less than $90, and as little as $55.

    i paid 81 dollars but for me otterbox just works the best. with otterbox on, i don't have to be extra careful carrying my ipad around, especially since it's really thin and light, i feel like i'm going to drop it any time. with the otterbox on i can just toss it in my backpack and take it anywhere.

    it's funny how people criticize the price of otterbox while many people here use the smart cover AND a back cover to cover their ipads. now that's a waste of money i think.
