Correction: Kmart owns SEARS. I just blew your mind, didn't I?

Actually, Sears bought K-Mart, but K-Mart became the controlling power.

Ok, just placed an order on Kmart.com. They give you an option to be notified by text message when the order is ready for pickup, so I guess this means they will hold it for you?

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.


I'm a terrible online shopper, I didn't write down my order confirmation number because I expected an email right away. How wrong I was...

I definitely signed up for that option.

Hoping I wake up to a text Sunday morning.

Just got a call from my local Gamestop asking me if I'm planning on picking my Wii U on Sunday because they can only hold it until Monday night because of high demand.
So stoked!!
I of course said yes im picking it up on Sunday! :)

Total says 320.00. How much was your account charged initially, a 1.00?

Same boat, I didn't even know I closed my window! My CC was charged an auth dollar, so I guess the order went through. Hopefully they send an e-mail soon.

Order total was $380.61 (Deluxe Set)

Charged to my card so far is $1.00, which was removed shortly afterward.

Apparently my "Shop Your Way Rewards" wasn't tied to my online account though, as I get the message. "You could have earned 3500 points on this
purchase with SHOP YOUR WAY REWARDS℠" above my order. (I've since linked my accounts)

I wonder if I can get those points after purchase.

Haha, at least you get Sunday to play it. I get to pick ours up and it goes straight into the closet until Christmas with the Skylanders.

No confirmation number. No confirmation e-mail. ~$370 charge in my Paypal account, but I'm not satisfied with that. If anything, it means my payment will be tied up for even longer than if I had just paid with credit, keeping me from my legitimate Walmart layaway that I ordered.

The 380.61 wasn't charged right, and you don't expect the account to be charged until you pick up the system, right? Sorry if these are stupid questions, haha.

Well I broke down and ordered a deluxe model from Kmart for pickup at the store down the street from my house which says it is in stock.

Used a credit card that I have sitting around with nothing on it so it doesn't matter if it get locked up with the charge. Worst case scenario is I just cancel the order after Sunday and wait for the charge to go back if it does get charged. Otherwise I will just pay it off on the card in full before the interest hits next month.

Somehow I doubt this will go smoothly. Especially with the issues I have had in the past with this particular store.

You need to tell your wife that if she loves you, she will let you go, and if you come back to her after going a few doors down to watch Skyfall instead, it was meant to be. :)

Or Wreck-It Ralph. Took the kids to that one. It was awesome for an old gamer like me.

I'm reading the SlickDeals thread about this same pre-order. In that thread, there were a few people in that thread that posted that they'd received confirmation e-mails - one of them even posted the e-mail itself - but generally, the number of people that placed the orders strongly outnumbers those that actually received confirmations.

Well ... to be honest, some of the better stores might work out ok, but most of them, like mine, I wouldn't count on it. Their pick up in store is extremely hit or miss, it seems they use some generic codes for things that don't always guarantee you the item you expect. You can always get a refund, but I'd put about even odds on having a Basic system, or maybe even an old Wii waiting for you if they don't have much stock or employees that bother unpacking it. In other words, if that is your only option - sure, but don't pass up a chance to get one at another store and get in line at K-Mart instead.

Even when SHC-Gamer(Josh) was taking care of things I couldn't find things in my store on release day, or an employee willing to look in the back.

On another note, I confirmed that my Gamestop had mine ready for Sunday. I just hope I can catch the "day before" courtesy recording call. Having the kids overhear that call telling us that our WiiU is ready for pick up would be ... awkward. Especially since it is coming from Santa.

Just got off the phone with my local Target. The person I talked to wasn't sure if they were getting systems in, despite the fact that I purchased a pre-order card from them. They've been super confused about the whole thing every time I've spoken with them, which is pretty worrisome. Guess I'll be calling again Saturday and then lining up early Sunday just in case!

Anyone order from Best Buy and having it shipped? Whats the status of your order? They already shipped my ZombiU but nothing on the WiiU and Mario. I'm going to be pissed if I have a game and no console.

I preordered day 1.

Starting to think I might be SOL come this Sunday.

Anyone think Best Buy is taking pre-orders still?

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"
