Bestbuy order likely getting delayed. The delivery date is already in Limbo. Same thing happened to me for Fire Emblem Three Houses, and didn't get the game until Monday.

I actually received my copy by UPS on the 19th. I guess it depends where it is being shipped from. I'm in Texas. My order shipped from Oklahoma.

Question: can you return the item without the pre-order bonus or they need the whole thing to process the refund?

I'm actually not sure. I didn't even pre-order or mention the journal, I wanted to play ASAP and the guy just got the journal for me. They scan the journal too and it rings up at 1 cent like others have mentioned. I won't be returning it anymore (giving my extra to someone), so I won't find out, sorry.

Got all my things today. Animal Crossing had me the most worried since it was just shipped yesterday around 5pm. It was sent on Next Day Air tho... No complaints. Bring on the quarantine!

Two copies from BB delivered this morning. Both include the Nook Badge, which at the time of ordering was still advertised as a pre-order bonus and listed as separate free items in the order details. It's actually nice quality. My nephew will probably use his.

I got lucky with a UPS driver that didn't attempt delivery (my sister was there and saw UPS truck go by but didn't stop). Hopefully I get to play this tomorrow after having to go to a UPS delivery point. Lucky me.

I also ordered the bag bundle and haven’t gotten the badge. My order says it’s been delayed and they may not be able to fill it.

If anyone was wondering: The Amiibo functionality is a photo studio run by Harvey. The non villager characters like Resetti who do not appear in the game will not spawn but you get a poster you can buy from the catalog.

 

There does not appear to be any way to import the characters and you cannot interact with them in the photo area.

I preordered 3 copies of AC before my GCU ran out.  All 3 copies were delivered yesterday and I received 2 out of 3 badges.  The last badge was delayed until Monday.

I was denied a price match at best buy for walmarts in-store pricing. The employee said that "we don't price match brickseek":) I was able to get the price match for Links Awakening at release date so not sure if I just got a dud employee. 

 

I will not go to walmart so maybe a picture of the label would work....?

Yes it was good for all preorders. Should have shown up in your cart when you preordered.

They removed the badge from the product page a while before the game came out, so I don't think all pre-orders got it. If you don't see the badge in your order details, you missed the window.

oh damn. thanks. i think i ordered the week before it came out. i thought i preordered when it first announced. but when i checked my order i didnt see it in my purchases so i quickly ordered it.

 

i did best buy chat. the guy couldnt help me. he told me to call. i called and there was about 3hr and 30mins wait time. im like forget it.

 

my target order is missing my journal book. it was there when i ordered back in Jan. my game still being delayed and the journal bonus disappeared. what a mess.

Got my bell bag today. Happy that i got both the game and the bag. Hopefully, the rest of my pre-order games can come through.

I just got a email from amazon. They refunded $10.75 on my AC preorder. They delivered it a day early & at a discount. Nice!

I could have sworn that prior to release you couldn't even pre order the standalone game, had to be the journal combo.

I got one in store. It's a really nice journal I hope it arrives for you. Raise a stink and get a credit or something tell them you have to buy it on eBay now.
