Case Logic proective case on sale $10 at Best Buy

Best Buy has the Case Logic protective case for the 600 on sale for $9.99 (was $29.99). These are really good for packing your reader for travelling. The 600 is very close in size than the slightly smaller 650, so the 650 will fit in this case fairly well. Better hurry before Best Buy realizes that and changes the price! Or simply runs out of them.

600 = 4.800" x 6.900"
650 = 4.750" x 6.625"

EDIT: I should add I saw these at my local BB. I don't know if they have them on their website.

I am at my local BestBuy right now and confirmed that Case Logic case for Touch Edition and Sony's Case (RED) is on sale for $9.99. I am torn between the Case Logic and the Sony case. The Sony case is much more compact. However, the Case Logic would be able to accomodate both the 600 and 650. I am not a fan of RED for my case.

Thanks for tips.

Hope I'm not too late replying: The Sony red case for the 600 will not work with the 650 unless you use velcro or doubleback tape because the 600 is appx. 0.27" longer than the 600, so the 650 will not snap into the Sony holder.

On the other hand, the Case Logic case uses straps to hold the reader in place and since the 600 and 650 are reasonably close in size it will work. It will be a little big for the 650, but it will work.

Nope, you're not too late. I probably will pickup the Case Logic. I'll use as a Carrying case. I will take it out when I actually start reading. I find it more comfortable holding the reader naked.

Arrrrgg...no the $9.99 I saw was for the Sony Black case. It sat right next to the Case Logic. The Case Logic is still priced at $29.99. It came out $32.?? after tax. I guess I going home without one.

Ouch, I wonder if my BB had mislabeled the case Logic case price too? Althouh they did not have the Sony cases in the same location--they were in a separate display about 10 feet away.

I bought a Black 300 case for $9.99 a couple of days ago at BB and used doubleback tape (foam tape) to secure my 350 in it. I still cannot decide if I want a new 350 case as they look expensive and cheaply made. I'll have to wait until they show up in retail stores so I can handle one. One MR poster said the outside was mostly the same material as the inside of the 300 case, so it sounds like very little leather, if any, and about $5 more than what the 300 case sold for originally.
