    $152.00! The person paid up last night, but i see some buy it now auctions with prices for 80 dollars, not quite sure why the person paid 150. I'm not complaining though!

    Congrats, I guess. LOL


    I only searched craigslist, up here the highest I saw them listed for is $50 sealed.

    When I posted my Black Bumper for sale, I'm thinking who/why would you buy it when Apple is giving them out for free.

    I did open/try it out and sold it for $20.

    I bought an extra black bumper on launch day just for the purpose of selling it on eBay, & got a pretty penny for it. :) I'm tempted to sell one of my colored bumpers, but I'm not sure. I like having the varitation in colors/options.

    People will buy anything.

    Well played op! Some people have more money than sense!

    You could have bought a vapour case and had enough money for an iPod nano lol!

    Nice! I may sell my unopened free bumper after reading this. I took off my original bumper a few days ago and really like my phone without a bumper at all.

    I managed to snag an unopened pink bumper on ebay for $35 a couple weeks ago. I still can not believe what some people are willing to pay for them. I'll just hold out on the other colors until apple inevitably starts selling them again.

    Amazing, some people are a bit mad, I'd rather get a free black one and spray paint it white.

    I was checking out prices of bumpers on eBay last night! :eek: what a premium. Most of the ones I could see were going for over $60. I wonder when apple will start selling again. I reckon a couple of impatient people would get a nasty shock if they put them back on the market at the end of September when the case program is set to end.

    Yeah 10 dollars for shipping? Better be shipping in a large priority mail box for extra protection and speed. I've seen some sellers charging close to 90 dollars for the cases and another 15 dollars for shipping :mad:. I've reported everyone of them for excessive shipping. These people are already making crazy profits of all of these people trying to get a color bumper case yet they get even more greedy and charge that much for shipping makes me sick.

    Are you serious? You reported them for charging too much for shipping? No one is making them buy the product, and everyone (Even the ebay "Lowest price" filter) takes shipping into account.

    ^ Now I've lost faith in humanity.
