    I just noticed something on ebay while searching for a specific iphone case. so I refine my results with bin/freeshipping/usonly etc etc...and sort results with lowest..i see iphone covers priced from 0.99-2.00. so i click on the auction to see how this US seller is selling an iphone case shipped for only 0.99 (shipped) and i noticed this...theres a drop down menu on top to "select color" and one of the selections is a screen protector - which..yes you guessed it..is 0.99..and once you select any color (black/blue/red/etc) it shoots up to 2.00 for the buy it now...so this is pretty clever bc when a customer sorts lowest first...these ebayers listing will come up right on top but not really for the price listed...smart...anyone have any experience with this?

    Do you mean one of the color options is screen protector for 0.99?

    just search 'iphone 5 case' and filter buy it now and lowest price...any of them that say $0.99 - $Anything and click on that listing. the '0.99' is the iphone screen protector, then when you select a color for a case the price shoots up to a higher value.

    You guys probably don't have the option because more than likely this is a feature only available to people who run an Ebay Storefront...which costs money.

    Granted, I haven't used Ebay much since the earlier part of the century so a lot of features slip by me, but based on what I'm reading - I think it is a good educated guess.
