    Wow, this is terrible. So are you guys going to other stores now..what's the next best deal? I checked out Target and they ONLY have Verizon n7's in all 6 surrounding stores (what the hell?). Unfortunately, I need Sprint. Is it only Best Buy or carrier stores left? Costco isn't doing anything? What a shame.

    Do you think it's possible to preorder and pay at bestbuy.com and then if Sam's Club emails me the day of (19th) I can just cancel the Best Buy order and get refunded?

    If you got on the waiting list I'd recommend going to best buy.. they at least are doing direct fulfillment on the free gift. I got lucky and have one Reserved at both sams and target ... small towns help. Also spoke to best buy yesterday and sounds like Sunday they will know of they can match the gift cards from sams or targets so best buy could be the way to go... at least that's what I was told yesterday.

    Oh wow, if they could match either or for the gift cards that would be fantastic. I just realized you have to preorder at BB in the physical store in order to get the sd card. Online the only option is the Gear. So, I will be going after work to BB to reserve and will ask about matching the giftcard.

    If Sam's Club emails me and says they have one for me on the 19th though, I'm hoping BB will allow a cancellation of the pre-order. Anyone know if they'll do that?

    I did one at best buy and they just charged me 50 dollars to hold it which was put on a BB gift card. I cancelled it once I found out about sams club and got mine reserved. So truly not out anything just now stuck with a 50 dollar gift card to BB which I'll just use for accessories or something

    They didn't make you pay the full $350 when pre-ordering? Huh, first I'm hearing of this.

    No as I was going to do the payment plan of 36/mo for the 2 years. Otherwise it was 350 upfront t

    Oh okay, so they will make me pay the $350 up front then since I'm doing a 2 year contract. Really wish Sam's Club would just email me.

    Does anyone know if getting a phone at Sam's will carry the same deals as Verizon? ie when you get one of these n7s you get 2 gb promotional data?

    What time do you all plan on going to Sam's to pick up your new N7? The reason I ask is because I spoke with my store today and the folks that work the cell phone area aren't scheduled to be at work until 10am even though the email confirmation I received said my N7 is available for pick up between 7am and 8pm. Everyone should check with their local store and figure out what time the cell phone representatives show up to work if you plan on being an early bird.

    I'll be there later in the day - no rush for me. Gotta work first.

    I am really interested in knowing exactly what Sam's is going to charge those of us on 2-year contracts. Rumors range from $299 to $350.

    I talked to the local Target that I pre-ordered the n7 through. They said the phones are delivered when the store opens on the 19th, but the person who actually receives the order won't be in at work until the afternoon..

    I'm kind of worried that the Samsung pre-order gifts will be all used up by the time I submit my Target receipt on the 19th for the promotional!

    Also my Target said they probably won't have phone cases for the n7 on the day that I pick it up so i ended up getting the Caseology leather bound case on Amazon.

    I checked out on Best Buy and quit where it asked for payment info, so I could get an idea of the contract price. Looks like it's going to be $350. And $400 at carriers with a $50 mail-in rebate. My buddy works at Sprint and that's what he told me. If this is all true, looks to me that there's 0 good reasons to buy from a carrier store.
    $299 on-contact on the VZW site.

    I just got off the phone with the mobile department. They said they were going to call people who had pre-ordered to let them know their phone was ready. Very different from the pre-order email that I received (stating that you could come in first thing on Friday). I was planning on showing up about 7:30AM. I am a business customer and they open early for business members. I may stop by this evening to ask someone in person just to make sure.

    Just called my Sam's Club and had to make an appointment to pickup my phone tomorrow - no walk-ins. They checked and could see me on the pre-order list. It's actually better for me to have a predefined time to buy it - hopefully less waiting around.

    Hope this helps another Sam's Club buyer.

    is this the first time Sam's has done pre orders? They seem to be all over the place about how to go about getting us our phones.

    I just called and the lady told me all preorders placed after 5pm on the 10th are waitlisted. I placed mine on the 4th and STILL got waitlisted. Going to go there after work and yell at some people.

    Just got off the phone with my Sams Club and they told me I can come by at 8am Friday to pick up my N7. Also they verified I was on the pre-order list.
