Pre-ordered my system though Best Buy. I talked to the lady at customer support and she said it wouldn't ship till release day. I wonder if she realized that release day is a Sunday and most shipping places are closed. When I ordered, I didn't get the store pick-up option which is making me a little upset. I'm hoping the customer support is wrong and it ships out tomorrow or Saturday. I can only hope. :)

At first there were no Kmart stores around me with stock, but I tried again after about an hour and was able to find 3 stores. I'd check again if I were you guys.

I checked out as a guest and didn't set a password to make an account. Kinda thinking I should have done that because I don't have any way of checking my order status on the site. Shit.

Looks like the pre-auth was refunded on mine, probably not a good sign.

You mean the $1.00 charge? I'm pretty sure that's standard procedure, as it's been what way on my credit card's site for nearly three hours now and there's no order cancellation to be seen.

Ahh okay, well that makes me feel a little better then. I don't preorder stuff enough to know what the procedure is on it.

I think it's just to make sure the card is legit, but they don't want to be accused of overcharging you a dollar so they refund it nigh-immediately.

Amazon does it all the time.

If anything is installed it would be pretty minimal, giving the limited storage out of the box.

Nearest Kmart showing stock is about an hour away. F it, I'm in. Let's see what happens.


Bored? Too much money than you know what to do with? Why not check out my Amazon Storefront? If you see anything you want, send me a PM! Make an offer, either monetary or trade! Over 2000 items, and more added daily!

I ordered one for pick up at a Kmart about a 1/2 hour away from me, unfortunately I won't be able to pick it up until next weekend. Hopefully they'll actually have it, but after seeing this on my order page:

Note: Merchandise availability and pricing are not guaranteed

my confidence is dwindling fast.

Oh well, we'll see what happens. And I haven't gotten the confirmation email yet, either.

For those who went through with it, did they charge your account already or will you have to pay for the system upon picking it up?

I was just able to check my order status by going to the actual Kmart site on the customer service page and inputting my order confirmation number and my e-mail address. I was then able to retroactively make an account and add that order to my order history.

What, KMart? I assume they charge your card at pickup, at least that's what Best Buy does.

-I just got off the phone with the Kmart manager in Oakdale,MN. He said they are getting them but the won't even know how many units until Tomorrow (Friday), he said just come in when the store opens on Sunday 8am and you will definitely get one! He said no one has even pre-ordered a Wii-U from them! I have coupons for Kmart so I'm going there! 8-)

I checked out with Paypal, I wonder how that will play out.
