Did anyone else pre-order from Best Buy? If so, have you seen any movement? I ordered the 42mm Space Black Stainless Steel with LTE. Says I should receive it on 9/22!

I'm thinking about it. When I put a space black Nike 42 mm wifi in the cart it says that it won't ship until October 13. I wonder if local Best Buy stores will have some in stock this Friday 9/22 and I could just go in person to pick one up?

Nike versions are due for arrival on 10/5 even for the people who ordered at midnight on launch day. So no. not a chance they will have it on 9/22.

I'm trying to land a grey ceramic edition. I pre-ordered it around noon EST on Friday. My shipping date is 10/13 sadly.

I did not get the sense that a S3 watch would be delivered by Best Buy by 9/22. Be interesting to see.
Well thats kinda what a pre order is to get it by release day. Plus my order confirmation states "get it by 9/22" as well as it saying that during the ordering process. If its not here by then I will have words with Best Buy lol

I’ve got a USPS Package coming from Deltona, Fl for delivery on 9/22. Best Buy still shows nothing, got the shipping notification from USPS. Anyone else?

No, I foolishly wasn't thinking at 2am in the morning and chose to pick up in the store. I don't expect to hear anything before Thursday about picking it up and obviously no shipping/tracking.

I do think there has been a change to "awaiting authorization" on my Best Buy card. I don't remember if I noticed that being there since last week. They don't actually charge until you pick it up though.

Nope no shipping so far. I’ve read some year old posts that Apple doesn’t let third parties ship until right before launch. So we may not hear anything from B.B. until Thursday night or Friday.

Nah nothing so far. But USPS doesn't sound too appealing. I was hoping it was UPS so I could pick it up.

It could be something else, but just seemed like it would be my Apple Watch and Apple TV.
