    Just sold my free bumper on Amazon:

    With shipping costs of about 1.50 for First Class Mail (3 day delivery), that's $36 of pure profit.

    They pay that because you can only get them free from apple, you can't get one if you already got your free case...

    Yeah but it's a tiny piece of plastic. There is absolutely NO WAY it's worth that much by any value system.

    They probably cost 25 to 50 cents to make, so I agree they pay too much, but sellers aren't complaining are they? Meanwhile I have 2 other iPhone 4 cases on eBay neither of which are selling. I think Apple's marketing combined with Apple not selling them has created this.

    I mean I certainly don't mind having $36 dollars subtracted from the cost i paid for the iPhone (which is what this is, practically), but it's still sort of funny to see that people actually value this so much, so I thought I'd share.

    All I know is that seeing this, I just realize how much money Apple must have been bringing in from these when they were selling them for $29.
