Default Budget cases

I'd like to see a thread for budget cases. I need a tough case, but I want this to be open to all types.

I am currently using a Caseology TPU case. It is not tough enough for what I need, but for someone who needs mild protection it is great. It's super slim and seems to be high quality. It barely adds any thickness to the phone.

Qualifications for the budget cases thread......

1. Must be $17.99 or less.

That's about it. I am a case collector just like many others here, but I tend to stay in the $15 range. I'd love to have the slim armor view or a zerolemon or even a Love-mei but I just don't have the money. Let's see your budget solutions.

Hey, I just wanted to say Merry Christmas to ya and I thought I'd help ya out and give your "Budget Cases List" a little "jump-start" by making a small starter list here for ya. These are all decent little cases for the money and none of them willshould break the bank(Let's HOPE!! lol). Each of these prices listed below are clickable URL links that direct you to their respective Amazon.com listings and are also listed in order from least expensive ----> most expensive(JUST of what's on THIS list, obviously lol). So far, for this small list I've made here, the least expensive one here will only run you $4.99 for the case + $2.97 to ship it, and the prices for these cases that I've listed vary up to the most expensive one here, still listed on Amazon.com at only $13.99 for the case + FREE Shipping if you subscribe to Amazon Prime. If, for some reason, you decide to change your mind and alter your terms for this "Budget Cases List" by increasing your price-ceiling, you could barellllyy up your ceiling by just a couple of bucks to try to keep everything at under......say.... $17.00, for example. If you did this, you could really broaden your spectrum by a good margin and be able to include more "well-known" and "proven" cases such as the Spigen Slim Armor ("Infinity White" - $16.99 + FREE Shipping with Amazon Prime). Now I'm reallllyy not trying to take anything at all away from these cases here by saying that you can include "proven" cases if you raise your price-ceiling. I'm just referencing the well-known fact that the Spigen Slim Armor Case IS one of the MORE "well-known" and "proven" cases here on XDA-Developers.com for the Galaxy Note 3. That's just a thought for ya....

Wow! Awesome list. Thanks for the contribution.

I'm fine with raising the limit to $17.99. I've seen the slim armor and it's nice, but I just don't feel right getting it without the view part.

I can vouch for the Spigen slim have a Slim Armor View on waiting and picked up thus and the Bear motion flip case. The spigen I'm using right now, it's a very stiff, good gripping, minimal case that looks pretty good, think I pad 10 bucks for it. The bear motion is a nice flip case. I can hold cards or cash in it. Has a built in stand and just nice look to it over all. You already saw the spigen slim here's the link to bear motion.
