I found out you can apply two coupon codes, but you must apply one first then wait until checking out to apply the other. First apply "MEMUEVO5" for 5 dollars off. Then apply "tb1010y" which gives you 10% off (so 4.50 dollars off) + Free Shipping!
Well actually I think I applied the 10% one first, but it should work the same way.

Great... RIGHT after I get my Trident case cause I was tired of waiting for this, this comes out.
Luckily the Trident gave me everything this would have for half the price. Only thing I would of liked is the holster, but OtterBox took too long and lost my money. I am sure it is a great case though... but I'd suggest people also check out the Trident Cyclops.HTC EVO 4G (rooted) > HTC Evo 4G LTE

The price being literally half that of the otterbox didnt hurt either haha

That said, I wish I knew about it earlier rather than waiting all this time for the defender, I would of ordered it a long time ago.
While I'm sure the Otterbox case will be great, the Trident is great quality with very similar protection for half the price. Plus they have a lot more color choices. I'd highly recommend anyone looking at the Defender to also take a look at the trident.HTC EVO 4G (rooted) > HTC Evo 4G LTE

Does that happen to you too? I am wondering if the two codes together is not really allowed. What's strange is that I'm not even getting any answers from Otterbox as to why.

I ordered it and received an order confirmation in email immediatley. Checked bank account and there was a 44.75 hold so no problems. Checked bank account Friday and still a 44.75 hold so I checked account at otterbox and nothing was listed in order history. So I read through all the information listed on otterbox's site and it states there is a 3-day hold on all orders so still there is no problem. So yesterday, I checked otterbox and my order showed up in history saying "shipped" but when I checked "details" it gives all info but it says "not shipped"! So this morning I checked otterbox's site again and nothing has changed and checked bank account.....get this.....the 3-day hold has been released and put back into my running balance meaning I haven't been charged 44.75. I'm lost on this I'm going to call them monday and find out WTF and if there was a problem, I'm going to cancel it and order the cyclops....

I ordered Weds, was expecting USPS delivery Sat at the earliest (based on delivery estimate). Got an email last night (Sat night) that had an invoice in it with a tracking number that is not yet recognized by USPS.
I guess I'm spoiled by the immediate communication and shipping of Amazon and Zappos, but geez, man...

Man, they are really dragging this out. I finally got the USPS website to register the tracking number and here's what it said:
Status: Electronic Shipping Info Received
The U.S. Postal Service was electronically notified by the shipper on November 14, 2010 to expect your package for mailing. This does not indicate receipt by the USPS or the actual mailing date. Delivery status information will be provided if / when available. Information, if available, is updated periodically throughout the day. Please check again later.
This whole Otterbox Defender order is almost like a parody of a mail order process...
First we will notify you of our intent to charge your credit card, then we will process that notification at which time we will prepare to send you an official .pdf on official letter head with numbers that look, well, official. None of them will work for four days. Upon sunrise of the fifth day, the tracking number will reveal---wait for it---a very serious intent to deliver to the post office the product that you ordered in the earlier season of our professed availability to distribute. This intent should not be confused with the actual activity often referred to as "shipping"; however, it should be considered seriously as we will follow-up to that intent on sundown of the 8th day with a letter indicating our further intent to call the truck to our warehouse to pick up said package for the purpose of delivery.

Got mine yesterday. $40.45 Shipped direct from Otterbox.
From order to receipt. (5) days.
I really like the case. The fit and finish of the case and rubber are top notch.
The covers for the earphone jack and the charging port/HDMI snap into place when not in use. No flapping around.
The case is both visually and texturally appealing to me.
The built in screen protector is nice and is resistant to fingerprints. I hope it lasts.
With the case on the EVO it is over .75 inches thick. If you like to pocket carry, then this case is probably not for you.
There is a kickstand built into the Otterbox case so you don't lose that feature (which I hear, you lose on the Seidio Rugged).
I am not too fond of the holster. It is more designed to hold the phone horizontally, but I wear it vertically. The phone locks in securely but rattles around. I added some adhesive back foam to a couple spots inside the case to prevent the rattle. What bugs me is when you have to WESCOG something you just dropped some coin on.

Holster: Seidio Active vs Otterbox Defender - Winner Seidio Active
Of course, your opinion may vary....
