Do you have a physical store in Escondido?

Where is the deal that when you order you get 1 free and the clear bag?

Michael—that is an excellent web site. I really like Lajo, and I order from him, but Lajo, if you’re reading this—your site needs some serious work in the ease-of-use department. I’m a web designer, so I get asked to consult on that kind of thing all the time. Perhaps Michael and Lajo could work out a deal so that Lajo gets a similarly-designed site?

Good job!

Duh sorry It helps to read

All of our eXo’s come with the zip case, screen protector, and belt clip. You can see them on the bottom of the first page.

To get the 2 for 30 deal, simply order 2 and enter the voucher number 123412345 in the shopping cart and click “recalculate” . If you do not want to buy 2 you can buy one at the special individual price and do not need to enter the voucher numb er.

We don’t currently have a physical store, just an “i” store.

Dudes… read the thread.  Like 4 posts up… From Michael himself of the iStore.

“To get the 2 for 30 deal, simply order 2 and enter the voucher number 123412345 in the shopping cart and click “recalculate.”“

The subtotal comes out to $29.92 for 2 eXos.  Works fine for me.

By the way.  I’d like to second other people’s congratulations on Michael’s job on the store.  It’s without a doubt the most navigable, robust online retailer for the iSkin eXo. 

LAJO- Fire your web desinger, and partner with this guy globally for your web design.  Seriously!!

I live right-next-door Arizona, so if I feel I need another iSkin, I’ll be ordering from iStore manually, rather than through  If I order from, it will come from Hong Kong… a bit silly.  Lajo should make his US partners REGIONAL, not just statewide.

Thanks everybody for the compliments on our site. This is only the beginning for us and we will be adding other gear, gadgets and accessories in the near future. We will always try and offer a superior shopping experience.

**I have made it even easier to get the special 2 for $30 Lajo deal at : You don ‘t need to use the voucher code at all.  Order one for $22 or order   2 and the cart will automatically give you the   discount. **

Michael is a true artist when it comes to web design and talk about user friendly.

After much deliberation between an eXo iSkin and their competitor Speck Products, I stumbled upon the beggining of this thread.  I went to Michael’s site after the dissapointment of and  As most other readers here, I was terribly impressed with the iStore layout and design.  I began to place an order which included (2) skins and (2) shades, the latter being clear and light indigo. 

After calculating my cart with the coupon code, I was confused on the final returned price so I jotted a quick email to the store support offered by the iStore.  Additionally, I gave the “877” number a call and left a brief message.  To my delight, I was contacted fairly quickly (within the same morning) from Michael himself.  He was extremely helpful and cleared up my confusion.  To relay the information:  The 2/1 deal comes with (2) CLEAR screen protectors.  Any further “colors” are additional.

We ended up talking about his storefront and my dissapointment with other representatives and resellers of the iSkin.  I noted a few suggestions (ie. showing what the glow-in-the-dark colors looked when dark, as well as seeing the iShades on the iPod)  He responed that he appreciated the suggestions and spoke of what the next round of updates will be to his site.  He mentioned a nifty idea of a “lightswith” to turn the lights off for the glow skins, and possibly a mix-and-match feature for the screen protectors coupled with Skins.

Both overall and in-depth I am terribly pleased with the level and quality of service that I have recieved from Michael and his efforts.  I wish there was some way to move his website’s post back to the top of today’s iPodlounge listings. 

Please understand that this is Michael’s “1st Gen” version of his storefront, and I am sure that it will go through a few revisions as feedback is returned and other products are offered.

Please help him out with your comments!
