This week, Daily Steals offers the iPhone 5 16GB refurb w/Otterbox Defender Blazed Phone Case for $99.99 shipped. That’s the first time we’ve ever seen an iPhone 5 below the $100 threshold and adding the Otterbox Defender case is the icing on the cake.

This is a great alternative to an iPod for kids or parents or a great backup phone in case something happens to yours. It takes the latest OS 9, is unlocked and works on all carriers except Sprint. If you give it to your kids, you can use Find my iPhone/Friends to find their whereabouts and even without the SIM, the 911 functionality works in emergencies.

It also makes a great burner phone with a $30/month unlimited data plan from T-Mobile or testing phone for developers.  Screenshot 2016-05-11 07.15.00
