Anyone ever got a successful preorder with a concierge service? my CC one, never let me down.
I certainly wouldn't trust my Amex Consierge not to screw it up! At your own risk.
If you say your CC concierge has never let you down, why are you asking us to tell you whether or not you should trust them?
Never used them for something like this, I'm sure someone else has.
Maybe have them pre-order you one and pre-order one yourself. See who gets the earliest shipping date and then cancel the other order. Concierge services are good, and certainly do their job well, but when you're against so many people on Apple's website getting your order in, it's really hard to have an advantage.
Everybody is using the same website, there are no shortcuts. I guess the benefit here would be that you could get sleep.
I'd be curious to see if anyone has done this successfully.
The JP Morgan Executive concierge has been great generally for me, but I'm not sure if I'd trust them to order the right watch, right size, etc. at exactly 12:01.
With an 8 month old at home, I'd love to get the sleep.
Depends how much it means to you.
Never thought about using this with my Visa. I've never used it for anything before. Is that how it works? You call and tell them what you want and they'll purchase it for you?
Use the service if you're paying for it.
Nice thought. My CC concierge won't actually buy anything on my behalf. The most they will do is do a web search and send me links, or make a phone call and connect me after they get off hold.
You sure? What CC company concierge that sucks.
Also my concierge said they will do it, I'm not sure if I should also wake up too.
The services strongly depend on the card. The higher end the card, the more they offer. If you have the black card, they'd even travel to another country acquire something on your behalf.
Preordering Apple stuff is an art. They'd mess it up. Don't do it.
If you have Barry as your concierge, id trust him not to screw up. Barry is on top of things. Not sure you have Barry or not though.
Just say the State farm jingle.
Probably the easiest way to buy it.
First world problems, eh?
Definitely true for my Westpac Earth Platinum Plus (an American Express+Mastercard account). They'll make reservations for me, but not pay for anything with my card.
You're telling me #
Just call Jake at three o' clock in the morning to make sure.
I wouldn't trust my concierge with such a task, this needs to be delegated to a first Footman or where possible a Butler
I was just going to have my assistant do it.
I've never understood why it's so difficult for people to just set an alarm for five-till, order the product, and go back to bed. I'm up at 0430 for work but 15 minutes of time to pre-order is nothing.
Some people do not sleep alone. Some partners would be seriously annoyed by an alarm going off in the middle of the night for this purposes.
Don't be a doormat.
Are you pre-ordering products on a weekly/monthly basis? If an Apple device is important enough to you to make you want to preorder, your spouse likely knows your interest and how much it means to you and will survive ten seconds of an alarm. Sounds like some people might not have the best relationship with their spouses'.
