Use code LTNGWHTE at checkout and it comes out to $0.75 plus S&H. Seems like a warm deal for $3.50 shipped with good reviews. And it’s 4 feet long, longer than Apple’s.
Seems to only work by choosing the $9.70 + $2.75 option, and not for Prime.
EDIT to update with full instructions: 1. Click on "2 New" link 2. Choose the BOTTOM option ($9.70 +$2.75 shipping) and add to cart 3. Go through rest of the checkout process, and add the code LTNGWHTE at the end

Good find. One of the only aftermarket lightning cables to get good reviews...and from over 400 people. Thanks OP! Also, in case anyone is wondering, I tried buying two but the discount only applied to one.
My experience with various "cheap" lightning cables isn't good. The connectors are very poor quality. I have several that will charge on only one side of the lightning connector now and also the copied chip they use causes dropouts during charging on USB, I often get "Charging not supported with this accessory" off and on with these aftermarket cables. Not saying it isn't worth a shot for the price but don't expect much.

Not saying it isn't worth a shot for the price but don't expect much. If the reseller is actually shipping "Boxwave" brand cables, they should be as good as Apple's cables.
But for $3.50, I'm skeptical. In for 2, however as I'm tired of toting around my single cable.
The 50 1-star reviews say the cable is too tight/loose or it doesn't work at all. That's 1 out of 6, so why take the chance that it could damage the internal phone connector? I'm for saving money too but this seems too risky for such a nice phone.
I'm going to try Monoprice's cables. I spent $40 on 3 cables. Comparing it to Apple that's buy 2 at full price and get 1 free. =/ Oh well. I'm sick of having issues and willing to pay almost the asking price of Apple. Hopefully I won't have to worry anymore.
