Was just wondering if anyone else who selected Store Pickup for the new iPad for pickup on Launch Day has received their confirmation email? I haven't received anything yet, other than the original email confirming that my order was placed on March 9th, for in store pickup on March 16th at the Somerset store in Michigan. Waiting patiently, but I thought I heard a few others in other posts mention they had received theirs already for their respective stores.

Just curious.

I actually just got mine yesterday afternoon just a few hours after apple charged my debit card. I would't worry about it though, as long as you got that original email you should be fine.

I thought they were not doing the online in store pick up this time. Option was not available when I ordered.
It wasn't at initial order (right after the annoucement), but then it became available only for a short time period. I ordered the next morning (on the 9th around 8:30am), and it was available. About 3-4 hours later, it was no longer available again. So, only a small number of people were able to do it. At the time I ordered, I had the choice of In Store on the 16th, or delivered on the 16th, but since someone needs to sign for it, and I wasn't sure if I'd have someone at home to receive it, I opted for in store.

I received my store pickup notification email yesterday for the NYC Fifth Avenue store. I called Apple to inquire about the email, and they said it's basically an automatically-generated email sent out whenever the iPad inventory for that store arrives at the store and is scanned into the system.

Hmm. If that's the case, I find it strange that my store for pickup hasn't either received their shipment or hasn't scanned it in yet. Oh well. Still waiting patiently...

I have the same issue too. My card has been charged, and i haven't got any "ready for pickup" mail yet. I will go to one of the nearest apple stores today and will ask them to see if we can pick my ordered tomorrow. So be patient.

I ordered 2 new iPads for store pickup.

First one, late on the first day (the 7th). I have received the email for this one.

Second one on Friday the 9th. I have NOT received the email from this one yet. This one still shows a date of Mar 16 online....but it's still processing.

Yes, the online status for the first one shows:
Ready for Pickup Please pick up your items by March 25, 2012

The second one still shows:
Processing items
But the date below still says Pick up: Mar 16

I didn't get the email yesterday until around 7pm....so not sure if the email all go out at once, once per day.

Keven, I am wondering how come the first one ordered on the 7th and the pickup date is Mar 25th. The second one you ordered on the 9th, but it says pickup date is on the 16th. I am confused.

Both have a pickup date of Mar 16.

The one that's been processed I have to pick it up BY March 25.

It says pickup by the 25th. That's not the date it's available to pick up from, but rather the last day you can pick it up before it's no longer available.
