    Default Anyone pre order watch series 2 from Best Buy

    I bit the bullet and preordered my apple watch series 2. They sent me an email today that they had pre order for the watch with sept 16th delivery. I was so surprised they were doing pre orders for the watch also. If you have the credit card you also get 12 month Interest free financing which is sweet!

    Nice! Hope you enjoy it. I don't have a BB card, so just ordered my Nike+ model through Apple.

    I think the delivery date of the 16th is good. I ordered from Apple online and they gave me the same date. I don't think Apple Watch 2 is going to strain the supply chain, due to moderate demand and relatively high price.

    I ordered mine from Best Buy right after I ordered my phone from Apple. It still says the 16th, but my order status still says processing.

    Ordered the wife a Series 1 in Rose Gold on Monday with expected delivery of 9/16, no movement yet but it doesn't matter much as it is a birthday present and her birthday isn't for 3 more weeks. Hoping she likes it!

    If it's really delivering on the 16th, it's got to be shipping today. BB usually does 2 day for preorders. I'm refreshing my order status like a mad man.

    There is still no update from BB site. Yes I am impatient!
    Just ship it already!!!
    My new Phone has been sitting in the Fed-ex Depot in Fort Worth since Monday with a header on the tracking page:
    "Per shipper instructions, package will not be delivered until the scheduled delivery date."

    Default Anyone pre order watch series 2 from Best Buy

    Just received the following from Best Buy. The watch has been delayed until Sep 28? Did give $50 for the trouble though.


    Best Buy order update.

    Dear Bill,

    Thank you for your recent pre-order for the Apple Watch Series 2.

    Unfortunately, we've learned from Apple there's been a shipping delay for this item.

    Here's what you need to know:

    The new street date for this product is 9/28/2016.
    You can expect to receive your new Apple Watch Series 2 on or around this date, depending on your location.
    You can view your order status on BestBuy.com/OrderStatus.

    Because we know you were excited about this new product launch, we want to try and make up for the delay by offering you a $50 promotional code towards your next purchase at Best Buy.

    Default Anyone pre order watch series 2 from Best Buy

    I just tried using my promo code and it's telling me it's invalid?? wtf. calling tomorrow. Anyone else seeing this?

    Edit: I'm dumb. It ended up needing to be used as a gift card, not a promo code. Email calls it a promo code.. lol

    I'm going to try to reserve one in-store (Apple store, that is) for husband tomorrow morning and if that works, we'll cancel the BB pre-order. Fingers crossed!

    I checked early this morning and it said Preparing for Shipment and sure enough, later today, I got the shipment confirmation e-mail and tracking. UPS tracking was loaded up a few hours ago and says I will have it Wed the 28th. Booo, was hoping to get early, but I guess they took the "release date" of the 28th to heart. Grrrr. But hey, at least I know it's coming! :-)
