    15 bucks for a Commuter Case. Can anyone vouch for this place? Do you think it might be a knockoff?


    Thanks all...

    EDIT: I just found out why it was so cheap! I ordered one and immediately got this email:

    "This item had a pricing typo. The correct price for this order item is $34.99. For further information on pricing errors please see our terms at the following link https://www.techiewarehouse.com//terms.asp.

    If you would like to continue with your order I can have a invoice sent for the remaining amount and also a 10% discount. Please let me know if this works for you. You have not been charged for this order currently. Please advise."

    $15 is cheap, but not that cheap.

    I ordered mine directly from Amazon back in April. It was only $21.
    Current price is only a few bucks more: Amazon.com: OtterBox Commuter Series Hybrid Case for Samsung Galaxy Note 2 - Black: Cell Phones & Accessories

    It only cost Otterbox less than $4 to manufacture these cases in China. (including design, labor, material) So prices can be all over the place.

    I work for a large shoe company. Our most popular man's dress shoes sell for $217 at Macy's.(list price $299) We manufacture them outside of Shanghai. Each pair only costs us $11.63, which includes labor cost, materials, and shipping back to the US. It used to cost us almost $47 each pair to manufacture in the US 6 years ago. (guess why we moved all manufacturing to China?)
