My order was delivered today. Strange thing is, not only did I not get a shipping confirmation email, I got an email saying my order was delayed with an estimated delivery of 12/24. It was in a bubble envelope, but the box is thankfully in okay shape. Can't complain!

I pre-ordered in store about a month ago. I was able to pick up my bundle today without issue. All the copies at my store were the actual bundle and not a pieced together set. There were no copies of the bundle out on the floor; pre-orders only.

The adapter itself is starting to sell out everywhere too

Well, I didn´t have the bundle, but I still got the game lol. In a another story, I saw two people with bags full of smash, pokémon and smash bundles. What the heck Best Buy?

Odd to hear that someone couldn't find a Link amiibo. I mean, there were probably 20+ of those at my store. Shoot, they had so many freaking amiibos that they just set a few on the bottom of the display. Billions of Mario, Yoshi, Pikachu, Star Fox, Donkey Kong, Link, Peach, and the other common ones. Like I said, I'm surprised that there was an issue finding Link.

 

Also, with the frequency of complaints, I'm questioning the displeasure with Best Buy. Maybe they oversold their allotment, but it sounds more like Nintendo failed to deliver the expected quantities. Well, except the store that lost the pre-orders. Screw those guys.

Pre-ordered last week for in-store pickup. Got an email yesterday saying it'd be ready today. Come today, they tell me it was cancelled but couldn't tell me why. Of course, they had none left to sell me, saying the ones they had were set aside for pre-orders. I am livid but I try to be calm since I also work a form of retail and the last thing I need is for karma to send me a bunch of irate customers at my own workplace. They tell me a store 10 miles away had it. I confirm if it's the right SKU, the customer service rep says they have 8 over at the other store, but can't hold it for me. I was apprehensive but decided to try the other store.

 

Go there, lady has no idea what I'm talking about. Show them the SKU, and their system says they have it. She checks the floor, it's not there. She checks the back, they do have it. She rings me up and of course I'm not getting my GCU discount. I ask why, and the lady explains it's because it's already at a promotional price (wtf?). I'm too exhausted to argue and get it anyway. I'll just try to return it tomorrow and have them fix it. But seriously, what an ordeal.

Thats BS, I would have gotten a manager. For some of us, a trip to bestbuy isnt easy, if I had to take an extra trip I would be pissed. (I have to pay a toll to get to mine, and its on a busy road so I dread driving there when I have to).

At the first place, the employee initially helping me had to bring a manager over. He didn't seem to know what he was doing honestly. The first employee disappeared and the manager said he'd look into my situation and left as well. I stood there for 15 minutes waiting for them to come back until another employee who had no idea what I was there for had to ask. That manager told her to tell me they didn't know why my order was cancelled but that they could do the bundle separately or I could try the other store. Honestly, that 'manager' didn't even have the integrity to come back and tell me that himself. The employee was nice though and tried to double check for me and brought back... New Super Mario Bros Wii and a Wii Mini. She explained they didn't have the 'bundle' but had the individual components. I told her that wasn't even the right game. I apologized for being a problem customer and thanked her for her understanding and that I'd try the other store which she told me had 8 of the bundle.

lesson learned, buy online and do in store pickup. My bundle was put aside on Thursday and walked in today with no problems. 

That's what I did and was still told there are no bundles for pre-order pickup... Sacramento Arden Store.

 

So much for ordering 4 months out to insure I get one before the floor stock is sold.. 

 

Ill call their 800 number tomorrow and whine , try to get expedited shipping to my home.

Was picking up my copy tonight. Person in front of me asked if they had the GC bundle and bought the last one. Kind of a bummer as I thought about getting it but oh well. I rarely do local multiplayer now that I live 2 hours from all my college friends :(

Welll, I wallked into Best Buy to buy my preorder and they did indeed allow me to return the basic game and swap it for the bundle. They had ten bundles in stock; 8 were apparently preorders and the other two went to myself and another gentleman who was doing the same thing I was.

I'm glad I got to keep my coin and get a bundle, because it was pretty packed. If I hadn't lined up outside ten minutes before opening someone else would have snagged the bundles.

I feel bad for the last person to show up to grab their bundle, though. While I was buying my game, a guy walked up and said he didn't have a pre-order but wanted to get the bundle, and an employee just grabbed one off of the shelf with all the preorders. Since I bought the last one in stock, they're going to get fucked.

I didn't get a coin. ;_;

Yea, UPS says ETA Monday.

I like how the "From" field points to the location I pass by daily on the subway. I can be there in 20 mins.

But no, lets just ship it blind to the store, and then have them ship it again.

I have an inquiry put into UPS now about picking up at the facility tomorrow.

 

I did get that 38 day late reply about my tv pricematch. They said thanks for the info that I'm upset and that it was a one off situation.

No word about the pending $100. So I tossed in the Smash debacle info as well.

 

So annoying that my friend just waltzes into gamestop and they have several, and I'm sitting with my thumb up my arse.

Same man, wish I had this two years ago when I was living in the college dorms. We used to play Brawls all hours of the day, my dorm was like the party room, people played Brawl from morning till night. This game would have been so much fun with the 8 player mayhem.....

After hearing all this horrible news about people not getting their preorders, I'm so fortunate to have mine (that was already paid off). But I can't always be too fortunate, since the Wii U I ordered is literally stuck in Buffalo, NY due to the storm. fffuuuuuu :(

Went to my Best Buy to pick up my bundle pre-order.  Not only did they sell all the bundles, they didn't even have any adapters to piece together.

 

What they offered was this:

 

I buy the game and controller, they give me a 10 dollar off coupon for the adapter when they get it in, and they also give me a 20 dollar gift card to say "Sorry" I guess.  I left, saying I'll just hold onto my pre-order until you get some more bundles in, if not I'll refund it.

 

I wish I'd crunched the numbers before I left, because it would have went something like this....

 

48 for the game after GCU, controller for 30, adapter for 10 after coupon... 48+30+10=88-20=68.  Possibly 63 if the 5 I spent for a pre-order slip is taken off the total.

 

68 bucks for a game, controller, adapter, and 1/2 of a Club Nintendo soundtrack is a-okay with me.  Do you think I should go back tomorrow and jump on a 68 dollar bundle deal, or wait it out for a week?

What good is being being  a cheapass if you can't crunch the numbers in high pressure situations....you panicked bro...just kidding but seriously that would have been pretty good.

I saw them at every store I went to this afternoon. Also saw plenty of all amiibos. Considering all the bundles are sold out, I guess everyone around here bought those and barely anyone bought adapters alone or any amiibos.

Well that's good to hear because all the stores I went to had no adapters so hopefully I can find one in another area. I mainly want it to play 8 player Smash with friends. In the meantime, I'm pretty happy playing with my Pro controller.

To be fair, I didn't know what the components by themselves were worth until I looked it up recently.  I'm pretty good at spontaneously crunching numbers.  I should have asked, though, you're right.

And the thought that the deal might not be good tomorrow is going through my head right now.  If I can't make this deal happen, oh well.  The trade credit might be better served on Black Friday, buying a few of the 20 dollar awesome games.

It's rough seeing everyone have all these issues when all I had to do was walk in, hand over my preorder receipt, sign a paper and walk out with 2 of my amiibo and bundle. They said right away that they hadn't gotten marth in yet so that was my only issue but they told me right away and I said ok cool be back when its in!
