    This could be another option for people if they don't want to stay up to pre-order online or if pre-orders sell out.

    I assume it's for pickup the following Friday, not for shipping, though it doesn't say either way.

    I just went to their site and found NOTHING, other than the title.

    No prices.
    No rules.
    No nothing.

    Probably at the Best Buy Mobile centers inside the Best Buys. I remember last year... they did them in-store.

    On Best Buy site, it says you can "Pre-Order in Store" the iPhone 6 but "Coming Soon" for the 6+.

    Got my iPhone 5S with Best Buy last year and I will never get a phone with them again. Horrible service and experiences with them.

    I was going to pre-order the 6+ from BB on Friday because I signed up to get a $50 gift card if I sign another 2 year contract when I buy a phone. Since it doesn't look like I preorder the 6+ from them, I'll probably go to Apple website at 3a and pre-order.

    My wife is manager at Best Buy in EasternMA. They will take pre-orders on every configuration of the 6 and 6 plus. pre-orders will be IN STORE ONLY from 10am to noon. They haven't currently been informed what the numbers are that they can pre-order, but even when they will, she states this is just the company's best guess. The pre-order is $50 in the form of a gift card (which you can return when you pick the phone up if you want).

    So... it's entirely possible that even with a pre-order you won;t get your phone for some time. I know the 5S had extremely ridiculously limited stock.

    So are they not doing online pre-orders like before? I have the $50 GC I want to use.

    According to best buy's forum they won't do preorder for the plus only the 6.

    Yep. That's what the clerk at my local BB Mobile store said. Doesn't matter to me since I don't want the 6 Plus anyway. It's WAY too big.

    If only the 6 had optical image stabilization... oh well.
