[Amazon.ca] DEAD: [HOT] iPhone Xs Max - OEM Apple Leather Folio Case (Forest Green and Cape Cod Blue) $24.99 through Amazon Renewed

For any iPhone Xs Max owners on here...this case retails for $179 at the Apple Store. Pretty crazy original price in my opinion, but Amazon has it down to $29.99 through Amazon Renewed (plus additional $5 coupon to make it $24.99 before HST). I just received my Forest Green folio today and it is absolutely pristine. In original packaging with all protective plastic/cardboard materials untouched.

At this price these are an absolute steal.

I’m assuming this will be a Chinese knock-off. I’ve seen some pretty convincing ones before..

Ordered. It’s prime shipping so easy to return if fake.

I’ll compare it to a official apple leather case and see if it’s genuine.

I laughed when I saw the price on this, but thought what the hell because it's got a 90-day warranty and free returns just in case. I'm going to take and share some photos of this later tonight, because this could not feel more genuine. I also don't see how this is "renewed", as the product looks like it's never been outside of the box before.

Everything down to the rigidity of the cardboard box is legit. I didn't believe it until I saw it - that's the only reason I thought I'd share on RFD.

Wow. You're absolutely right...so that makes the original price even more obscene and this deal even better for those interested.

I agree that the original price (which turns out to be $179, I had mis-remembered the price) is pretty ludicrous for a phone case - but I don't know where else you're going to find an OEM leather case with Apple's build quality for anywhere in the neighbourhood of $25.

Either way, definitely worth a look for anybody with this phone who would never otherwise purchase a case with this price tag.

This is probably already the most detailed thread in RFD history about a "refurbished" iPhone case, but for anybody curious about whether this is the real deal or not, some photos for your viewing pleasure...

The box is shown next to that of the iPhone 8 Plus leather case, purchased direct from the Apple Store.

This is not only a genuine product, but it is brand new and has clearly never been used, possibly never even removed from the packaging.
