Accessory makers take advantage of free Bumper offer

A number of accessory makers have launched new offers aimed at taking advantage of Apple’s recent announcement of a free iPhone 4 case offer. Both Incipio and Proporta are offering Bumper trade-in programs, with Incipio promising $5 off any Incipio product for each Bumper sent to the company—a limit of two per household applies—and Proporta offering 20% off any Proporta case or screen protector for the iPhone 4 with each Bumper returned using the promo code “CASEFREE,” with no apparent limit in place. Fusion of Ideas is instead offering iPhone 4 users free side pieces of its StealthArmor protective film, with a shipping charge of $1.50, and the option to upgrade to a full-body kit at a $10 discount off regular price.

I was kind of wondering what the response of all the secondary case makers would be after Apple promised a free Bumper (or some other case that has not been named).  If all 3 million iPhone4 owners get a free case there is not much need to buy a case from all these other companies.  They are essentially secondary casualties of “Antennagate” themselves

I wouldn’t worry to much about the case manufactures, bumpers are a joke. So what they cover the outer edge big deal that doesn’t protect anything.

I tend to agree with shameless1. I would take a free bumper to have as a backup case, but I still would be getting a more protective product. Case makers know that the Apple Bumper is not the #1 choice of MANY iPhone 4 owners.

Only 5 dollars off? Bumpers will won’t give the protection a body case offers but they will be fine for most people. It preserves the look of the iPhone 4 and the bumper prevents the glass from touching the floor if dropped on a smooth surface.
