    Anytime I get to the cart with the base 16GB wifi....it says not eligible.

    Yet their page says you can?

    Anyone had any luck?

    I already reordered so I'm not absolutely positive but I believe it said in store pickup was not available.

    According to this page:
    http://www.apple.com/retail/ipad/

    It says:

    Buy it online and pick it up at your favorite Apple Retail Store on March 16, where we’ll get you set up.

    I was able to click "Select Store" but every time I put in the zip code it would always get stuck and show no store.

    Now it says "Not eligible" I will give it time

    Yeah, this is really annoying. I live in MA but wanted to pre-order for pickup in NH (tax-free) and it's not letting me.

    This morning the in-store pickup option seems to have re-appeared.

    Do we have to pick it up on March 16th? What is the window we're allowed in case we can't do it on that day? Thanks.

    I'd avoid the Apple store on the 16th like the plague. Would rather sit at home and wait for the FedEx guy to hand it to me.

    I believe in the past you've had until 9-10pm that day to pick it up or else it can be giving to a waiter.

    I just spoke to a chat rep. She said I can contact the store directly after the order is placed and confirmed and they will work with you to try to specify the date.

    THIS. There is no need to fight the crowds.

    So does anyone know what time we will be able to pick up in store? Last year it was 5pm, which was convient because you didn't have to wait in line all night for an AM release.

    ----------

    For some people (like myself) it saves a lot of money if you live in the near vicinity of an Apple store in a state with no tax. For example, I'll be going to the Christiana Mall Apple Store in DE where there is no tax, thus saving me around $50 in MD sales tax.

    Last year there were NO preorders for the iPad 2. So the only way to get one was stand in line all day. The stores closed at 5pm and reopened at 6pm to sell them....all first come first serve.

    This year, with home delivery preorders AND store pickup preorders.....I'm guessing they go on sale in the morning when the store opens....but no idea.

    I have my store preorder that says I can pick it up on the 16th....but no time given.

    I ordered mine for store pickup but I will not arrive in the US until April 6. For how long will they hold it in the store if it's available already on the 16th?
