    for the 3GS launch I preordered at my best buy and picked it up on launch day. It is really really close to my house so thats why I went there rather than :apple: or at&t

    IF Best Buy allowed pre-orders, I would DEFINITELY go there because I am a Reward Zone Premier Silver member and I would get a ton of points for it!

    But, I guess, they won't be allowing pre-orders. :mad:

    Plus for the clumsy people out there, they offer a great warranty.

    have you talked to your local best buy? I am also a premier silver member and my local store has told me they plan on starting pre orders as soon as the 15th rolls around

    45 is probably more than AT&T stores will have if launch is anything like the last 3.

    Thanks for your information, but it is not worth making a thread for it. Also, I was referring you as like person. Finally, I would not even know you would buy iphone. So, I really don't care.

    I'm guess that if you live in a decent sized city, you might be ok if you really want to get your RZ points. Just get there early. Be sure to talk to the manager that will be on duty during the launch so you know where the line is. That happened to me with the 3G iPad launch. Waited around the Apple section and lo and behold, iPad line is at customer service.

    Just think about it this way. Look at the list of places that will have it and take an educated guess on what the tech scene is like in your city and see if peeps will line up at Best Buy.

    I usually go to Apple. Is it worth it just for the RZ points?

    Last time I checked, you don't get to decide what is worthy of making a thread or not.

    There are plenty of Best Buy customers (and some loyalists) here...

    I think you've been sitting at your computer too long...You need to wipe the Cheetos dust off your bathrobe, and back away...:rolleyes:

    Depends on how much you buy at Best Buy. For the RZ Premier Silver, it is worth it because of bonus points...and, for example, I have been banking points since Christmas (I am up to the equivalent of $150 in Reward Zone certificates)...and have 200 bucks in BB gift cards...These are earmarked for the 2nd gen iPad next year.

    I've put a call in to my local BB, where I know the Manager and Assistant Manager from a previous issue. They come back in tomorrow, so I'll find out straight from them whether it is possible to pre-order, etc.
