Anyone have the word on what to do for best buy in store preorders?

My $5 down doesn't instill a tremendous amount of confidence in them setting my unit aside. Plus, they never pulled my BO2 Hardened Edition online in-store pickup order and I almost missed out on that, so their recent track record for my store is less than stellar.

Just not feeling like camping out.

Ok. Thanks. It has been a couple hours already, but it is not even 8 am yet, in Washington. So, thinking after the store opens should work itself out.

So toys r us tomorrow too for buy one get one 40%off. Unless best buy would match that I could just buy the games there. I would like it get Mario and maybe zombie u. Scribble may be an option?

raging at target over the phone over their complete sleeziness. They decide to take preorders on a bundle this week, and fulfilled those orders. Yet, people who have ordered only the consoles have been had. There will be hell to have. On hold with their supervisor, i need to vent some rage.

Was there any issue with your credit card charge? I ordered mine right away when they put the system preorders up on 9/14 and mine shipped yesterday without any issues.

For those who got their Best Buy in-store pickup notices for the system, are you in the east coast? I am in the west coast and ordered one online within minutes of going live and nothing yet. Order says checking store for availability. Should I be worried?


I am in Mountain time and mine says it is ready for pick up November 18th so I should be able to get it at midnight.

They had my credit on hold since my order date. Target is just another shit business where they will reject the honor of first come first serve in order to sell these bundles at a premium, and fulfill those orders. Also, floor manager hung up on me after hearing what i had to say. He didn't even respond .

My Walmart.com order just shipped, yay! It says it was actually picked up yesterday afternoon, so it'll be here Tuesday :) I was able to snag it when they had just the Deluxe Console up without a bundle

Is that on the Kmart.com site or the phone app? On the app mine shows as "waiting for approval" but on the site it still says "processing".

I'm in the same boat but stopped by my BBY yesterday and was assured by two different people that the pre-orders would be set aside at customer service and I would have 5 days to pick it up. I hear you about the $5 though.

I plan on heading over to BBY about an hour after they open tomorrow to let the crazies who just show up get in and out of there and (hopefully) trust that what they've been telling me is true.

I was stoked about the buy1 get 1 40% off, until i saw it was $49.99 and below only. Nothing in that price range i want.


You could always do the other deal from Toys R Us of buy one $59.99+ game get $10, or buy 2 $59.99 and save $30.

I was one of the ones yesterday who got the email from Toys R Us about a delay in my preorder, but just got another email saying my Wii U Deluxe will be available for purchase starting tomorrow. Guess they got the shipments in now.

BB Norcal pickup at Store Status - preparing order, checking in-store inventory.

Not worried, since I also have Zombiu on preorder with in-store pick-up on a separate order and status is mirrored the Deluxe Wiiu.

I decided to switch my NSMBU to in-store pickup and it's now ready to be picked up, after the console shipped but not the game. Looks like I'll have my console no later than Tuesday - pretty pumped.


my shipped this morning, my wiiu should be here tuesday. i don't actually have a BB in my town this is why I shipped it so I could use my credit card and get free financing for 18 months (i'll pay it off sooner than that but at the 1st of the year I'm hit with plates for my vehicles and taxes).

but can't wait to get it, i'm off from thurs-mon next week

Just found out my Walmart isn't 24 hours, so no luck for 12:01 Wii U. When do Layaway hours usually begin? Do you suppose I'd have any luck getting my Wii U from there today?

EDIT: it's 9AM. No big deal, I'll just wake up bright and early (for a Sunday!)

The weird part about my order, they said Zombie was delayed sent email about it. It was the first item to ship. From the beggining it was listed as the last item I would get. Now the first item listed pro controller is the only item not shipped, got delay email from the same date to the same date. Walmart is fucked up but at least I'm getting a Wii U and I'm pumped! My 32 gig deluxe is in the state at my local Fed Ex I wish I could pick it up. But it will delivered Tues I guess. I don't know why not Monday but ok.
