Apple bumpers arriving, Best Buy giving away free side film for iPhone 4

TiPb iPhone Forum user shaolinfinest let us know last night, and many others have since confirmed, that Best Buy was starting to give away InvisibleShielf protective side films for iPhone 4:

I'm not sure if this has been discussed but Best Buy is starting to receive Zagg kits called "iPhone 4fix" or something like that. Basically Zagg sent us a bunch of invisishield sides to put on customers iPhone 4's and they are free. The only disclaimer on the kit is that it says shield and install is free but install is up to the associate if they want to put it on or not. Before going in, call your local Best Buy if you are like me and don't want to put a case on it. I installed the sides today and it was easy to put on and feels ok so far.
