Ok, don't laugh, yes I did a pre-order through Best Buy knowing how bad they are. Believe me, not my first choice of places. I had a bunch of miles I could cash in at Best Buy, so they got my business. So I pre-ordered on the 12th as soon as it showed on their website. It came with free expedited shipping service. As of today it shows "in progress". I called customer service and after waiting 35 minutes for an answer, they said it would be deliver between Oct 3rd-13th and that it was on backorder and could not fulfill all of the pre-orders. Interestingly enough, I told them that according to their website it is in stock and could be delivered on Friday. Apparently they have no way to reach their warehouse, but that the website is wrong. I am supposed to call back tomorrow at 3:00 for a status update since they are not allowed to call customer. They also show in stock at Best Buy stores near me, but was advised I can't pick one up because I didn't select buy "site to store". I can't do a refund because of the high dollar of gift cards from my miles, it will take 14-21 days to process a new replacement gift card from a return. I have always bought through BH, but this time had to use my miles. Mistake!
Anyone else with any luck, or am I the only one who used them? I am hoping that eventually I'll get notification it shipped and the customer service people are just left completely in the dark and had no idea what they were talking about.
