New and Cheap iPhone 5 Accessories, Plus the First Discount on the iPhone 5

By , dealnews contributor

So you woke up at 4:45 am last Friday to pre-order the new iPhone 5. And now you're just waiting and waiting and waiting for AT&T to ship that baby to you from China. (Hopefully this Friday!) Instead of twiddling your thumbs compulsively checking UPS for tracking updates, why not pick yourself out some new iPhone 5 accessories?

  1. Apple iPhone 5 16GB Smartphone Preorder bundled with a $4.99 Vudu Movie Credit
    Vendor: Walmart
    Price: $189.97 in-store only
    Lowest By: $10

    Is It Worth It?: Talk about exciting: This is the first such deal we're seen for the new iPhone 5, although Walmart doesn't guarantee immediate availability for the September 21 release date and you'll have to visit a physical location to get the offer. You'll also need to commit to a new 2-year agreement to get the iPhone 5 at this price; but it also comes bundled with a $4.99 Vudu movie credit.

    The iPhone 5 features an Apple A6 processor, 326-ppi (pixel per inch) Retina 4" display running at 640x1136, front- and rear-facing cameras, 8-megapixel camera with LED flash, 1080p video capture at 30 fps, 802.11n dual-band wireless networking, 1GB RAM, dual microphones, and more.

  2. AMZER Cases for iPhone 5
    Vendor: eXpansys
    Discount: 15% off via coupon code "AMZER15"
    Shipping: From $3.99 s&h

    Is It Worth It?: Expansys is taking 15% off brand new AMZER iPhone 5 cases via coupon code "AMZER15", with prices starting at just $7.22 after the coupon. We like the AMZER Soft Gel TPU Case for iPhone 5 in Black (pictured) for $7.64 after the coupon. It features cutout access to all ports and buttons, and is fashioned from multiple thermoacrylics. The result is a case that is highly elastic and resistant to oil, corrosion, and abrasions.

  3. Skinomi TechSkin Screen Protector for Apple iPhone 5
    Vendor: Skinomi via Amazon
    Price: 1 cent with $2.95 s&h
    Lowest By: $12

    Is It Worth It?: Don't just prevent scratches on theback of your new iPhone. Get the pictured Skinomi TechSkin Screen Protector for Apple iPhone 5 to shielding the glass on the phone's now-larger touchscreen, too. It's just 1 cent. Or you can opt for the Skinomi TechSkin Screen Protector and Full Body Protective Skin for Apple iPhone 5 for 99 cents to encase and protect your new toy without any bulk. These cases are made from the same film material used to protect military aircraft.

  4. ZooGue Social Shell Case for Apple iPhone 5
    Vendor: ZooGue
    Price: 1 cent via coupon code "FreeZooGueAccessory" with $3.98 s&h
    Lowest By: $1

    Is It Worth It?: Do you want a grippier, more gel-like case? Then the ZooGue Social Shell Case for Apple iPhone 5 in 10 colors is for you. Plus it's just 1 cent via coupon code "FreeZooGueAccessory". Can't decide between all the colors? Add two cases to your cart for $29.98, and apply the aforementioned coupon to score both for just two cents with $5.97 shipping.

  5. BoxWave Apple iPhone 5 Cases
    Vendor: BoxWave Corporation via Amazon
    Price: $1.50 via coupon code "LUVAPPLE" with $2.25 s&h

    Is It Worth It?: With this deal, you can preorder from a section of BoxWave iPhone 5 cases scheduled for release on September 28 fr just $1.50 via coupon code "LUVAPPLE". We like the stylish BoxWave Apple Arctic Frost iPhone 5 Gel Skin Case in Turquoise (pictured) for $9.95 before the above coupon, $1.50 after. It features a rubberized grip, semi-transparent "frosted" appearance, and more.
