So an Apple rep just told me that there are no delays or back orders on any of the series 3 watches, that all orders will all ship on 9/22 according to their system now. I feel likes it's BS, since very rarely in all my experience have they ever mis-quoted by much shipments. what's your guys thoughts here? I'm leaning toward shady tactics by this rep to get an order from me: Oh, that’s correct! Actually, the pre-order is going right now and the way to be able to receive it is via mail, however, no worries! I’d be happy to check if reserving one would work in your area, may I have your zip code, please? thanks - 06019 would be the west hartford store Thanks for providing that! Let me just check that here. thanks Okay, thanks for waiting! As per checking here, it would be really great if reserving one or making an appointment for pickup is available, however, pre-ordering it online gives us the shipping option only. What we can do here is to preorder here online and receive it on the 22nd! How’s that? Will that be an option for you? sure, that works. Perfect! I’d be glad to help you create a bag for you! May I know, if you already have a specific Apple Watch Series 3 + Cellular you’re eyeing on? yes, the space black stainless with black sports band Gotcha! Thanks! Let me just prepare your bag here. great, thanks You’re most welcome! And oh, by the way, while I’m creating your bag here, have you ever heard of AppleCare+? yes, I have on current watch Perfect! That’s a really great protection for your investment! Would you like me to add that as well? And also, would that be the 38mm or 42mm one? 42mmm yes add applecare please View Shared Items You just need to click on "Add all to bag" once you've opened that bag and proceed to checkout after that, cool? A few gentle reminders, you'll receive an order confirmation email after the order is placed. yes, I'm at check out now, afterwards you adjust the shipping for 9/22? Yes! That’s correct! However, just to set your expectation, the shipping would start on the 22nd, but, it might change due to its availability. But, you don’t have to worry about it, we’ll do our best to ship the Apple Watch to you as early as the 22nd. sure, but it won't be the date it's quoting of end of October? the shipping of my order would be the 22nd, or just the sale to people in general? mine of which is over a month away? Oh, no, that’s only on the website, but, as per our information here, shipping would start on the 22nd, so, there would be no chance of shipping that at the end of October, that’s already for too long. ok, thanks.
