Has anybody in the UK been able to have their delivery dates brought forward and got a freebie too?

I'm ringing them later today to see if I can get anything moved forward. So long as its here for Christmas I'm more than happy though. Estimated arrival is 21st of December to 2nd of jan

Why are people getting free items \? why would apple just give away stuff for no reason ?

what are you saying when calling up ? Where is my free stuff haha

List of free items I got:
USB SuperDrive $80
Trackpad $70
Numerical keypad add on $50

That's $200 in freebies apple gave me

I'm interested in what you guys are saying to get orders pushed up and how the hell you're getting all this free stuff??

I ordered my BTO 27" iMac on the 30th. Base 27" with 1TB Fusion. Dec 28 - Jan 4 with 2-3 day shipping. I wasn't able to get any free stuff or even get the shipping changed to next day. The girl I talked to said it wasn't even possible to do that.

Hi from Canada, first time here. So excited about the new 27" iMac. BTO on November 30th available to ship 3-4 weeks with delivery Jan 3rd - 8th. Just finished talking to customer support a few minutes ago and asked if there was anything they could do to move up my shipping date. The lady said out of good will, apple will expedite shipping. I thanked her and instantly it reflected the updated shipping schedule on my order

Now it reads: Available to ship: 3 - 4 Weeks
Delivers 31 Dec - 4 Jan via Expedited Shipping

Thank you Apple & to one and all, have a very Merry Christmas!

Yes, I got all of that + Apple TV + mini-iPad.. :rolleyes:

roll your eyes in jealousy all you want, I talked to the right people and I had some issues with shipping AND it was on my business account (even though it was for my home, they didn't know) so they treated me very nicely


so keep being salty, I already received all the freebies last week

Just ordered a 27" yesterday, BTO. Found lots of info searching in the forum which helped make the config decisions for me. :)

2.9GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5
8GB 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM-2X4GB
1TB Fusion Drive
NVIDIAGeFrc GTX660M 512M GDDR5
APPLE MAGIC MOUSE

So .. I just have "Available to ship: January" on my order status. Just wondering if others in the same boat have seen that date resolve into something more specific yet. I assume at some point, I'll get a delivery window?

This is really weird. As soon as I ordered the money were "reserved" in that account, although it still showed as no money had been charged yet. Then it moved to still reserved but looked as it had been charged - i.e. the amount reserved was also missing (although pending). And now... it's not even reserved anymore and it looks like the day before I ordered. Don't know what to make of all this, anyone else encountered anything similar?

This is the normal procedure.

So for the people with delivery dates of 21-28 they'd probably be preparing for shipment soon right?

I hope so, would be great to see "Preparing for Shipment" next week already.

It wouldn't surprise me.

I ordered early on 11/30, and for the next two days, a $1 PENDING/Processing charge from Apple (along with a full charge for AppleCare) appeared in my online charge card page. By Monday or Tuesday, the $1 had dropped off/gone away.

A full amount for my iMac re-appeared (Posted 12/7) and according to the CSR at charge card, it would appear the vendor (Apple) is preparing to charge for purchase; and we all know what that means. :D

Great catch! I just checked my CC as I purchased a few hours after preorders opened and my credit hold for my 27" BTO went from hold to pending post for Monday :)! Guess that's a good sign for things to come...

Hi All - first post. I just checked the status of my BTO 27" and it has now changed to "preparing for shipment". When I checked this morning it was still "processing". I ordered 11/30 ~ 1210 am, live in Los Angeles. Fingers crossed that it'll be on it's way soon. Still says "delivers Dec 21-28" which is what it's said all along.
