Update: 3/11 @ 8:20 AM: The price has now dropped to $5.96 Prime shipped as an add-on item, meaning you’ll need to include it in orders over $25 in order to take advantage of the additional price drop.
Amazon is currently offering its AmazonBasics 9.7-inch iPad Smart Case for $8.43 Prime shipped. That’s good for a 30% discount from the going rate and is a new Amazon all-time low. This smart case is compatible with latest generation 9.7-inch iPad and can automatically sleep/wake your tablet thanks to the built-in folding screen cover. If you’re looking to add a bit of protection to your device without breaking the bank, it’s hard to go wrong here. Rated 4+ stars from over 65% of the 270 customers who have left reviews.
For comparison, Apple’s own first-party iPad Smart Cover sells for $39. So if you’re willing to ditch the Apple branding, then AmazonBasics’ case is a solid, budget-friendly alternative.
AmazonBasics iPad Smart Case features:
- 9.7-inch smart case for 2017 iPad 9.7-inch; offers a sleek look and enhanced screen protection
- Automatic sleep/wake cover functionality; provides full access to device’s buttons and ports (no need to remove the case)
- Made of BPA-free material; integrated magnets keep cover lightly closed
- Cover folds horizontally for use as a stand; stylish Black color
