    I know many of us have ordered our new 2016 Macbook Pros with the Ship to Store option. If you have done so and have already received your order will you share your experience?

    When did you place your order?
    What was your pickup date estimate?
    When did you get the available to pickup notice?
    Was your card charged prior to the pickup notice?
    Did you get tracking info?

    Placed order about 30-45 min after the keynote, original estimate was Nov.25th for pick up, and I got early confirmation for pick up on Nov 17th! Super happy with the process.

    Nice! That gives me hope. Did you get tracking info prior to the pickup notice? Or see that your card was charged?

    Nah, for store pick up you don't get any tracking info unfortunately...but the original charge showed up on my card about a week before I got the confirmation for pick up. Maybe a little less than a week but definitely in that ball park.

    Ordered at 15"/460/512/silver within 15 minutes of the keynote on 10/27. My order confirmation was originally for store pickup on 11/25. I received an update after 2 weeks with a new date of 12/9. The PFS update improved the date to 12/2. I picked it up yesterday 12/1.

    No tracking information was available for store orders per customer service.

    I'm hoping my wait is really only 4 weeks like yours. IF so that means that there's hope for late this week. ;)

    By going to UPS.com and choosing Track by Reference and entering my phone # I am able to see that a shipping label has been created and should be able to track my package's progress to the store.
