Investing in a top-of-the-line phone is a big deal; the latest iPhone generation can cost as much as $1,099. But even if you’re not dropping a ton of cash on your new handset you still want to get the most out of it, and that means making sure that the device physically survives its years of service. A case to keep it scratch- and dent-free is essential, but not all cases are the same. 

If you really want to keep your shiny new phone looking pristine you’ll want to use an OtterBox case. These cases are so good they can survive a drop of thousands of feet… though we still wouldn’t recommend testing that out. The one caveat is that they can be expensive compared to regular cases. But guess what. Right now Amazon has some killer deals on OtterBox cases, turning this premium protection plan into an affordable one.

While you'll always get free shipping on items with orders over $25 at Amazon, sometimes you just don't want to wait, especially with recent supply-chain issues. Why not speed things up with an Amazon Prime account, which offers free two-day shipping, along with great members-only sales and award-winning streaming content? It's only $13 a month or $119 a year — and your first 30 days are free when you sign up here.

Save up to 53 percent on the OtterBox Defender Series

If you actually are looking for the type of case you can drop out of the plane, the Defender Series is your best bet. These thick rubber cases are designed to absorb the shock of a fall, so not only will they keep your device from dings on the corners, but they’ll also likely keep the screen from cracking. Raised edges protect the camera from damage, and there’s even a holster if you’re taking this to a job site… or just working in the garden. This iPhone 11 case is normally $60 but right now it’s only $28; that's a 53 percent discount!

This case has been well-tested, with almost 20,000 five-star ratings on Amazon. One mom bought it for her son and "can't say enough about this phone case. I have never cracked or broken a phone with an OtterBox on it. I bought this one for my son as he is a plumber and needed a case he could clip on his belt." And this shopper says, "Precision and reliability I know I can count on. [...] What it lacks in fashion appeal and color selection, it makes up for in dependability and truly amazing precision and fit. I feel so much more assured that my phone will survive my daily gyrations." Sounds like it's great for exercise, dancing and any other activity you can imagine!

So you don’t need a case that can survive being dropped off a mountain, but it would be nice to have one that can handle your daily trip to work — even if that’s just from one room to another in your house. The Commuter Series is a lighter-weight case that's a lot less bulky than some of the company’s other offerings, so it slips easily into a pocket or bag. And they’re available in several colors, from a bold ocean blue to a warm blush pink — so you can pick one that pops inside your bag. They’re available for multiple devices, including the iPhone 11, and right now you can save 28 percent. This case is only $29!

It's beloved by more than 26,000 shoppers. One calls it "great protection and not overly bulky," adding that they appreciate the color, too. This fan says it's "the only thing I buy for my phone," and she will "really beat them up, drop them, fling them, bounce them" but her device is still in great shape. Good to hear!

If the Commuter Series isn’t quite stylish enough for you, the Symmetry Series might be more your speed. These cases come in tasteful, bright colors (like teal) or appealing graphics like marble print, while still offering great drop protection for your device. And they’re thin enough to enable wireless charging, so you don’t have to pry your device out of its case every time its low on battery. But if you do need to take the case off, be assured it’s easy enough to remove when you want it off — but will stay put the rest of the time. This $50 case is currently a whopping 60 percent off, down to only $20, if you want to fancy up your iPhone 12 Pro Max.

This user did a lot of research, and decided "that a thin, protective, and stylish case was what I wanted. If that’s the case [for you], I absolutely recommend the OtterBox symmetry case. I love that it’s very thin but very protective as well. I have dropped my phone a few times and not once did any damage occur." Sounds like you won't have to compromise with this one!

Let’s face it, though — phones are really beautiful these days. Why would you want to hide them inside bulky cases? Otterbox’s Symmetry Clear Series is designed to show off your device’s sleek curves and soothing colors, while still offering great protection against scratches and nicks. You can even bring a little bling to your phone if you choose the sparkly Stardust version of this iPhone XR case. While this also would normally cost $50, it’s currently 39 percent off, meaning you can snag one for only 30 bucks.

Shopper love case, with one putting it through a rough test right off the bat: "This is a great product. I dropped my phone off the top of my stairs, my phone bounced off the stairs, smacked the wall and then hit the hard wood floor. When I picked up my phone, there wasn’t a single crack. 5/5, would recommend."
