With so many choices when it comes to accessorizing your new smartphone or tablet, let’s make it simple. These are four P’s to consider: Protection, Productivity, Personalization, and Promotion


No matter how careful you may be with a new smartphone or tablet, you’re bound to drop it, spill something on it, or even both.  Having the right protective case helps ease that worry. The Otterbox Defender ($49.99) and Commuter Series ($34.99) for iPhone SE both provide multi-layer protection to guard against bumps, scratches, and daily wear and tear. The Defender Series even comes with a built-in screen protector.

The Speck StyleFolio for iPad Pro is a durable option that protects the tablet from bumps and scratches. And the case can be adjusted for multiple viewing and typing angles, perfect for your desk or an airplane ride.

If you love the sleek design and don’t want to add a case, tempered glass screen protectors are also available for the smartphone and tablet for reliable scratch protection.


It’s true, mobile devices give us plenty of entertainment and games. But we also use them to be productive and get things done, and a “low battery” alert shouldn’t get in the way.

The mophie juice pack® Helium (1500mAh) with Desk Dock bundle ($69.99) gives you a portable charge when you need it most and it doubles as a case for protection. The dock makes it easy to charge both devices simultaneous while propping your phone up for easy viewing of notifications as they come in.

When it comes to tablets, your typing preference shouldn’t get in the way of productivity either. The Zagg Keyboard Folio (available in April for $99.99) gives you the flexibility to use the touch keyboard or a physical one based on what you need at that moment.


Cases let you add flair, color, and personality to your devices. Every time the device is taken out, you and everyone around you see the case.

Choose from a variety of cases across multiple brands and color models including Case-Mate, Incipio, kate spade new york, mophie, Speck, tech21, and more. The Case Loyalty Program gives you savings with every eligible case purchased. So you can have a case for every occasion in life.
