Have you been the victim of water damage? It’s not a kind place to be in, especially after you’ve purchased a phone as part of a two-year contract. I have a set of friends (married) who experienced such disappointment a few months ago when the wife’s iPhone fell into a small puddle of water and would not power on later that evening. Fortunately, I had purchased the iPhone 5 a few months earlier and had a perfect condition iPhone 4S available for sale.

Lifeproof Fre iPhone 5 Case

If you cherish your iPhone 5 and do not want to lose functionality, then you need to consider getting a waterproof iPhone 5 case. Fortunately, Amazon (whose deals come along right when you need them) is offering Lifeproof’s iPhone 5 element-proof case for half the price of the original retail value. Lifeproof cases often come with an $80 price tag (or higher, when you calculate item tax and shipping), and this price tag may be steep for some individuals. With Amazon’s new deal, however, you can purchase a Lifeproof iPhone 5 element-proof case for just $40.

The above link, however, refers only to the white and gray case. If you want a black iPhone 5 Lifeproof case, you can go here. I must caution you, however: to get the $40.00 deal on the black iPhone 5 case, you’ll need to wait 3-5 weeks for your case to ship. This may not sit well with some customers, but if you are willing to wait, you’ll be pleased with your purchase.

Just an extra note: waterproof cases such as the Lifeproof iPhone 5 Case (also called a “Lifeproof Fre” case) can often feel larger than the phone size and can pose difficulties for your touch screen user experience. You will likely need to touch some on-screen icons twice in order to get the touch screen to respond to your touch after placing the Lifeproof iPhone 5 case on your iPhone 5.

Lifeproof is offering its iPhone 5 waterproof case for $20 off ($60), but I would recommend ordering it from Amazon. After all, spending $40 will get you free shipping plus an additional $20 discount than what Lifeproof currently offers.
