How to protect your smartphone on Spring Break
Spring Break is all about vacations, friends and exciting moments, but staying connected to the people close to you can be especially important when you’re in a strange place. Lots of spring breakers and vacationers bring along their smartphones when they travel, as they can be invaluable tools to avoid situations like getting lost or losing track of friends and family.
But while bringing your smartphone along to the beach and elsewhere is handy, it can also be dangerous to your favorite electronic devices. Fortunately, there are plenty of cases to help keep your devices safe and your vacations fun.
Keep the water out
Waterproof cases can be a lifesaver for smartphones when accidental disaster strikes. Especially when lounging around the pool or hitting the beach, having a waterproof case can be the difference between a momentary inconvenience and device disaster.
You can find plenty of great smartphone cases, like the iPhone’s LifeProof case or Grace Digital’s Eco Pod, from retailers such as Amazon.com. You can find plenty of cases to keep your iPhones safe and glare-free, among other things, from Apple.com – which also offers 1 percent cash back.
Plenty of other retailers have other great case offers. Walmart offers 2 percent cash back on its cases, and Target gives customers as much as 3 percent cash back and offers lots of cases that can protect devices from damage. There are other great cases available from other retailers too, such as Zappos.com and Radio Shack offers 3 percent cash back on its phone cases. Other alternatives include checking out cellular providers – AT&T offers as much as $100 cash back on purchases, and Sprint offers $30.
Protecting your electronic devices is a worthy investment, especially when heading out on vacation. There are a huge number of third-party cases available both for iPhone and Android, and you can grab solid deals if you’re willing to look for them.
