That I can’t say. I preordered a camera lens from them a couple of months ago, so I’m familiar with the backorder/preorder thing, but I wasn’t watching the shipping super close and I don’t think Canon embargoes their stuff the way Apple does. I know B&H shipping is a well-oiled machine, so I’d expect they’ll ship out as soon as they have product.thank you, that’s what I figured
do you expect them to start shipping out today or tomorrow
Ordered mine on 10/31 around 11 AM CST.when did you place the order? mine also says backrodered but i’m wondering if it’s just saying that bc it’s not in stock yet
I’m lucky, my next town over has an APPLE store and it’s a no sales tax state.Ordered mine on 10/31 around 11 AM CST.
If I can't wait, then I'll just bite the tax saving and go to the Apple store on Wednesday afternoon.
If you come to California, we pay almost 10% on top of everything for sales tax!!I’m lucky, my next town over has an APPLE store and it’s a no sales tax state.
When I ordered my XS Max from Apple, I was stunned when I saw the tax on it. I forgot my state raised their sales tax a 1/2% a few years ago. Tax was something like $78.00!
That’s what we had in Seattle. 9.5%, and 10% at restaurants. Though we didn’t have income tax (the double dip is where Californians really get screwed). The year we bought two MBPs we saved over $500 in tax by buying from B&H.If you come to California, we pay almost 10% on top of everything for sales tax!!
Well, technically you're supposed to pay for it while you file your taxes, but nobody does. The Supreme Court actually had a ruling recently to close the loophole that online retailers aren't required to collect sales tax in states where they have no physical presence. So I'd expect this to not last much longer. Basically it went back to a ruling which set precedent which stated that mail in catalogs didn't have to be required to collect sales tax if they mail their catalogs to states where they don't have a brick and mortar presence. But given the scale of the internet economy and how everything is moving in that direction and the strain it is putting on local governments and society at large, the courts decided to overturn it in this case.That’s what we had in Seattle. 9.5%, and 10% at restaurants.

same here, i’m gonna give it til like noon EST, if nothing i’ll contact them and if they’re not helpful at that point i’m canceling my order7:25 AM CST - Just checked B&H and it still says, "Backordered"
Apple shows it being available to order and pick up in store today near me...can't decide if I should just pony up the tax and buy on Apple right now to pick up later today or wait it out

welp im giving them 3 more hours lol thanks for this infoHere is a chat transcript that I had with them a few days ago.
"Jordan K: Can you send me a link for the specific version you mean?
Jordan K: Unfortunately, it looks like it will take a few weeks or more to ship new orders for this.
Me: OK, thanks
Jordan K: Is there anything else you'd like to ask me?
Me: No, that was all
Me: Thank you
Jordan K: Thank you for choosing B&H."
I am thinking that pre-orders aren't going to be shipped right away.
I picked up my order from Apple yesterday, and would say it was well worth the $80 tax I paid. I went from an iPad Mini 2 to iPad Pro 11". I really didn't want to wait and take the chance with B&H. Hope everyone gets theirs soon!
