1. Case-Mate Naked Tough Case for Samsung Galaxy S6
There is something funny about the whole protective phone case industry. It’s odd that we often pick phones based on their appearance, but then immediately cover up the phone with a bulky silicone case. That’s why so many people opt for a clear, minimalist case, which shows off the lines and color of the actual phone. However, many minimalist cases are on the thin side, and many people worry they won’t be rugged enough.
Enter this tough case from Case-Mate. It’s clear, minimalist, but with a bit more heft to it than the average clear case. Anti-scratch technology has been applied to keep the case looking its best, even after heavy use.
Price: $17.74 (49 percent off MSRP)
2. Samsung Adaptive Fast Charging Charger for Samsung Galaxy S6/S6 Edge
Samsung gives you an Adaptive Fast Charger in the box with the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, but you might want to have an extra charger to keep at the office, or in some other room in your house. This charger can get your S6 fully recharged in about 70 minutes. If you only have a few minutes to charge your phone before running out the door, this charger can give you a decent amount of battery life with only a few minutes of charging time.
Price: $34.85 (42 percent off MSRP)
3. Maxboost Galaxy S6 Wallet Case
Looking for a slim wallet case? This model from Maxboost is a nice choice. The slot lets you insert the whole card into the front flap, which goes a long way towards preventing contact abrasions on the screen, caused by the raised numbers on the card. This case is covered by a lifetime warranty.
Price: $6.99 (77 percent off MSRP)
4. SoundBot SB1000 9-in-1 Multi-Function Station With Wireless Charging
The S6 has wireless charging capabilities, so owning a wireless charger is a must with this new smartphone. This charger is a nice option, since it does much more than charge the device. It also acts as a clock with time and date, a Bluetooth speaker, a temperature gauge, and even a built-in mic.
Price: $35 (65 percent off MSRP)
5. Shocksock Samsung Galaxy S6 Neoprene Pouch
Sometimes, a pouch is preferable to a plastic or silicone hard case. This pouch-style case from Shocksock is form-fitting, but provides a little extra protection. This is a nice option for people who prefer to use their phone without a case, but would still like to use a case to store the phone while in a purse, briefcase, or backpack.
6. Power-7 Nylon Braided Cord Charging Cables (3-Pack)
Need a charging cable for every room of your house? This multi-pack of charging cables is a great choice. The nylon braided cables are a bit more durable than your average third party fare. Plus, they are available in multiple color options to suit your personality or home decor. Each pack contains cables in three foot, six foot, and ten foot lengths.
Price: $7.98 (60 percent off MSRP)
7. Speck Products CandyShell Inked Case for Samsung Galaxy S6
Speck’s CandyShell Inked line offers the same great protection as their other CandyShell cases, but with interesting designs and patterns. These attention-grabbing cases are available in a variety of styles, but all of these Inked cases have protective button covers and a scratch-resistant, hard coating to keep the colors looking vibrant over time. More than just a pretty face, these cases are designed to meet military drop test standards, so they’ll give you great peace of mind for the life of your device.
8. iKross A2DP Wireless Bluetooth 4.0 Headphone with Charging Dock

9. OBLIQ Heavy Duty SKYLINE ADVANCE Samsung Galaxy S6 Case
Searching for an S6 case that features a built-in kickstand? This inexpensive case is almost half off, making it a great find for savvy shoppers. The case is marketed as being thin enough to not interfere with wireless charging, which is a nice perk. If you’ve dealt with too-thick cases that had to be removed prior to placing your phone on a wireless charging pad, this case may intrigue you. Plus, the kickstand is great for watching movies, taking selfies, or chatting with friends.
Price: $17.99 (49 percent off MSRP)
10. Basis Peak Fitness and Sleep Tracker
Samsung has a wide array of fitness trackers and smartwatches, including the Samsung Gear Fit. However, some people dislike the form factor of Samsung’s offerings. One new fitness tracker on the market that may appeal instead is the Basis Peak. The Basis Peak works with both Android and iPhone, and tracks heart rate, calories burned, steps and more while automatically capturing walks, runs and rides. The Peak is a little more expensive than the Gear Fit, but it does have the benefit of being a newer product.
Price: $189.95 (5 percent off MSRP)
