I was wondering about the BfA release for Best Buy, as I have a CE for in-store pickup on preorder. I found this thread on their Community forums:
Hey Everyone –
Our support teams got back to us with an answer ahead of the weekend. In an effort to meet the early US release time, it’s been decided that ship-to-home pre-orders are being shipped out with a Monday delivery date target. That said, there are chances that some people may not receive their order on Monday, and we recommend keeping a close eye on your tracking details over the weekend.
For those of you who pre-ordered for in-store pickup. To ensure inventory is available at all locations, it’s been decided that we will open up purchase and pickup in-store on Tuesday Aug. 14. I know this isn’t the answer many of you were hoping to receive, however, this is being done to ensure orders are not inadvertently cancelled due to inventory being unavailable.
See you in Azeroth,
Bummer, but oh well, I can wait a day since I can't really play until Wednesday anyways.
