We know that many of you appreciate free stuff a lot, as such, we decided to devote this special article to inform you how to get free phone cases.
If you have a smartphone, getting a phone case is basically a must-have; that is if you want to relax a bit and not constantly worry about your phone being scratched or dropped.
Herein you will learn about several methods that can get you a free phone case. However, before we dig deeper into how to get free phone cases, you should know a thing or two about phone cases in general.
There is a wide range of phone cases currently available on the market. They come in various shapes and made from various materials. Some offer very basic protection, while others can protect your phone completely. Moreover, they come in various colors, designs, and themes, so one can match the phone’s look to one’s needs and preferences.
The most popular phone case material options include leather (genuine or PU/vegan), silicon, TPU, plastics, rubber, cloth, metal (aluminum & stainless steel), some are even made out of carbon fiber. Silicon, rubber, TPU, and plastic phone cases are still the ones that rule the market. Most of these cases are designed to clip on the back of the phone and come with a raised lip that protects the screen and the camera.
However, leather cases are most often in the form of wallet-like design, where there is a front cover that opens like a book included. Those cases often include compartments for credit cards and cash and can be transformed into phone stands.
Moreover, metal/hard plastic cases often come in a heavy-duty form; they include screws to tighten back and front plates to offer a phone maximum protection from drops, dust, and even water.
As you can see one has a lot of options when it comes to phone cases. Of course, you can expect those options to be rather limited when you aim for a free phone case.
Does The Government Provide Free Phone Cases With Phones?
As you most likely know, a qualified household can get a free government phone (aka Obama Phone) through the Lifeline program. If applying with certain wireless providers that offer the most benefits, you can get a free phone in addition to a free/discounted monthly plan.
These phones are not the best or the latest smartphones; oftentimes they come in the form of a refurbished smartphone or a new entry-level smartphone or even in the form of a basic or flip phone.
As far as we were able to check, free government phones don’t come with a free phone case. As such, we advise you to move on to another section, in which we will take a closer look at some of the legit ways that can get you a free phone case.
How To Get Free Phone Cases?
Getting a free phone case may not be as difficult as it may seem. There are actually several ways for an individual to obtain a free phone case. However, the trick here is that it may not be that easy to get a free phone case that will match your existing phone, though it is not impossible.
Below is a list of the most common methods that can get you a free phone case.
Buying a phone at showrooms and get free phone cases
I am sure you’ve seen or at least heard of phone showrooms before. These can be phone models displayed in regular phone stores or they can be separate events when phones are displayed. It these situations, phones are often displayed in phone cases and if purchased on the spot, you’d normally get those cases for free with the phone.
These events are not that predictable, however, they are easy to spot. Often, they appear in the middle of the shopping centers or the fancy mobile stores.
You will most likely notice them from now on more often. If you encounter one and need a new phone, ask the local representative or a salesperson in charge of the show if any of the offers include free phone cases.
Some phone company offer a phone with phone cases free
Most popular brands, such as iPhone, Samsung, Huawei, and LG often include free phone cases with their new phones. These come together in the box with a new phone.
However, it is rarely predetermined which models do and which don’t include a free phone case. Moreover, keep in mind that these cases are normally completely basic silicone bumpers. However, since they are offered by the phone brand themselves, they are of high quality and are normally able to survive as long as your phone will.
Moreover, there are local or online phone stores that tend to run special deals from time to time in which they include either basic or in some cases even more advanced phone cases as part of their special deal.
The general rule with this type of deals is the more expensive the phone the greater the chance of getting a free phone case with your purchase.
Also, you may also try and negotiate a special deal with a seller (best in person). Tell them that you are interested in buying a new phone, however, only under the condition if they sweeten the deal with a free phone case.
Friend or relative gift phone cases for free
Telling your friends and family members that you want a specific kind of phone case is another valid option to obtain a free mobile case. Sure, they will most likely need to pay for it (unless they manage to apply one of the methods presented herein), however, it will be yours free of charge.
Phones cases tend to be a nice gift. Moreover, they are not all that expensive and often just the right value gift, especially for special days, such as Mother’s or Father’s Day, Birthdays, or any other holidays when gifting is in place.
If you decide to give this method a try, make sure to communicate with your family or friends what kind of phone case you want and which is your phone model. If that is not done, you can alternatively get a store credit or a gift card, which you may use to obtain a new phone case.
Buy electronics device get free phone cases
We have covered this option in case of phone purchase above, however, there are many other electronic stores that tend to run a special deal, where they add a free phone case to your purchase. You may be buying a laptop, a TV, or a blander, and could be getting a free phone case as a bonus gift.
If you are in the process of buying any piece of electronics, make sure to ask a local store if they perhaps run such a promotional deal. These types of deals are most common in local stores, however, online stores also tend to take that approach to offer their clients that extra value and create a more positive experience for their customers.
In some of these offers the phone cases are limited to a single phone brand, model, or size, however, oftentimes you can choose among several phone case types and sizes to actually get the one that suits your current phone.
Win a lottery and get free phone cases
We are not talking about the national money lottery. There are many online ‘lotteries’ or ‘lucky draws’ run by phone companies, influencers, or any other marketers that are offering this sort of draws.
These lotteries are the most common online and are typically free to enter. You will be asked for your email and will need to subscribe to their email list to get into the draw.
We know that chances of you being picked may not be the greatest, however, you always have more than 0% to win, which can be enough.
Keep in mind that there are many shady online sites offering that kind of lotteries on regular basis, as such, we advise you to always do a short background check of the company to see if they are legit. Google searches and visits to their social media platforms will normally do the trick.
Moreover, entering your email is not such a big price to pay; you can always unsubscribe later if their messages bother you in any way.
However, do not enter your credit card information or other sensitive personal information for these kinds of lotteries. You want to stay on the safe side.
Giveaway tends to be extremely popular and are in a way very similar to the above-described lottery. However, they come with one major addition; normally you will be required to perform some sort of action. This action normally requires you to like, share, or comment on specific posts or social media accounts.
If you do all that it was required in that particular giveaway, you have entered the draw (and is very much like the above lottery). A company, an influencer, or a marketing agency that is running the giveaway will then randomly select a winner, who will receive the price (a phone case in our situation).
Also, keep in mind that giveaway normally refers to very specific prices; in case of phone cases, there will normally be a specific phone case that they are giving away. Thus, make sure that this is the case that you can use to give as a gift to any of your family or friend (make sure the case matches the phone).
Surveys and collecting points and get free phone cases
This is another common method of getting a free phone case (free-ish). Why free-ish? Because it will cost you some time to complete the survey.
In case of extensive surveys, which may be run by mobile phone companies, wireless companies, or marketing agencies you may be asked to answer a series of questions, which can take you even up to 30 min in some cases. However, in case of such extensive surveys, you are normally guaranteed to receive the price (no drawing included). And more often than not, phone cases are the price for your time and collaboration.
Another legit way of converting your time spend on surveys into a free phone case are popular survey platforms. These include Survey Junkie, InboxDollars, Swagbucks, LifePoints, Vindale Research, Branded Surveys, MyPoints, Pinecone Research, and many others. Most of these have their own online stores or give you credit for other popular online stores, where you can redeem your credit for specific items. And if you decide to get a phone case, you can get if for free.
Challenges are an extremely popular marketing method these days. They are very similar to giveaway campaigns. They are often run by influencers and include some daily tasks. The great thing about the challenge is that its main focus is normally to do some sort of good deed, initiate a movement, or implement some sort of new habit that will benefit you.
If the giveaway item is a phone case and you are the one selected, you will get a free phone case.
