    I'm in Northern Virginia (DC suburb). Pre-ordered 10/16, didn't get an email so I just went to the BB store anyway. No phone for me, I'm apparently too far down the list. They said they only got a few and that all the phones in the area are already spoken for by pre-orders. Guess I underestimated the demand for this phone.

    They said my original Palm Pre should qualify for the $200 gift card, but they don't know for sure till I actually perform my transaction. That better be the case because that's the only reason I'm not buying from AT&T store. The AT&T store near me had white ones in stock.
    I'm in Northern VA, though I suppose there's a lot of Best Buy's in Northern VA.
    Preordered last weekend. They told me they've gotten no shipment at all yet, at the store I ordered at.

    I was able to get it. In addition to the pre order one. Total was like $325 with tax. With $200 gift card and two $50 cards my total was $19.62
    Sounds like an episode of Extreme Couponing

    Forgot to ask. Did you all have to bring the charger too when trading in your phones? Or do they not care?

    It went almost smooth. I got my email yesterday and a call last night saying my phone was ready for pick up. I arrived when the store opened was helped right away.

    Unfortunately the store didn't know and I didn't know that Best Buy can't do next upgrades (as in I already have a next line ready for an upgrade) even after he spoke with At&t directly to see if I could do an alternate upgrade on my wifes line they said no.

    So I left the store with out a phone, I then went to the two At&t stores in my area and all they had was white note 4's the color I did not want.
    So now I wait even more.

    Best Buy in Memphis wont do it. They are claiming the phone has to be activated. I told them that's not right. They pulled out internal documents that said it. I informed them I preordered my phone a whole 10 days before that date on the memo and was told it couldn't be done. Help!

    Funny thing is that I've never seen so many BB associates in the phone area. They have nothing to do. I already sent a note of dissatisfaction to corporate via the feedback on their website. I encourage others to do the same. I also talked to the stores general manager

    My experience went really smooth, but I must have missed the extra $50.00, they didn't offer it for me, but they did give me $225.00 for my phone....

    What if you just get BB to give you actual trade-in value, then go through Samsung for the $200 Galaxypromotion. I'd assume you can still get the $50 from Best Buy because you're not combining their trade-in offers.

    If you don't mind, can you answer some questions for me? What was the purchase price before the $200 off? What was the price out the door? And do you know if can make a purchase in-store using PayPal (I know you can for online purchases)? Thanks.
    Purchase price was 825.99. Adjusted price was 625.99 before tax. PA has 6 percent sales tax, so it came up to 663 and change. I have no idea about PayPal. I've never tried to use PayPal to pay for anything.

    My purchase went smooth this morning. Got to best buy at 9:30 and was the second in line. They came out before the doors opened and announced that no devices other that pre orders were available. They then cross referenced names with pre orders that arrived. I bought the device outright. I don't think I was supposed to get the 200 credit for the device because I wasn't doing a contract. They tried to process and it wouldn't go through without activation. However they decided to do it anyway. They gave me a 200 dollar gift card for an iPhone 3gs. I added this to the previous 50 plus gave 200 cash which left 420 on my best buy card to pay as I choose. Extremely happy.

    So, since some people are paying full retail and receiving the $200 credit, does that mean I can go to Best Buy and pre-order the Verizon Note 4 and get the $200 instant rebate upon pickup? I am not upgrading or adding a line. I'm on the granfathered unlimited data plan and want to keep my plan so buying off contract. I currently have the phone pre-ordered at Verizon but will cancel if I can get the instant rebate from Best Buy.

    I don't see anywhere in the terms where the additional $50 card cannot be combined with another offer.

    So I called all the bb in half the state of ct, the half where most people live, and I only found one bb that has the note 4. And those are reserved already. Some launch day huh? I also asked when bb normally gets their shipments so I can plan when I might be able to pick mine up, and they said usually Fridays. So that sucks, wait another week now!
