The HUGE savings continue on HTC One M8 Dot View Cases!

Get it for $29.95 - Save 40%!

In case you missed our announcement earlier this week, we reduced the prices on the popular HTC One M8 Dot View Cases for a limited time.

The original plan was to end the sale today, but since we've seen soooo many HTC One M8 owners scoop these semi-transparent flip cases up we decided to extend the sale a few more days. If you haven't grabbed one yet, do it this weekend while the sale is still on!

Our store team made sure to bring in more Dot View cases, so we're stocked up on every color including warm black, imperial blue, baton rouge and orange popsicle. Be sure to grab the one that suits you best and enjoy the 40% discount while it lasts. Or heck, get one in every color. At this price, you can't go wrong!
