    I noticed quite a few people have received the pre-ordered Note 9.

    Are the direct pre-orders from Samsung shipped out first?

    Has anyone who pre-ordered from B&H received the phone? I went through B&H as they offer extra Dex and wireless charger.

    I would like to get a feel of when I can expect my Note 9 pre-order to arrive (ordered Blue/512GB) - no shipment status through B&H yet.

    Thanks.

    B&H website still says expected availability Aug. 24. So it could ship tomorrow if it's on schedule. They should charge your card when your order ships.

    I ordered from B&H as well and have been checking with their online chat team for update. They said they will be getting inventory on Friday but unsure if it can fulfill the demand of all the pre-orders. I ordered the 512 GB blue version and am from Canada.

    When I ordered the ocean blue 128 model from them on the 10th, my email said, "Your order will be filled on a first-come-first-served basis." When I check my order status on the B&H page it just says, "New Item - Coming Soon, Will begin shipping 2018-08-24" So I would expect them to START shipping on Friday. Since I live in NJ, and ordered fairly early I would think I'd have it early next week, possibly this Saturday if they do ship it Friday. I'd prefer that of course, since I can be home for the Fed-Ex delivery then. Otherwise, since they show up in the mornings at my place, I'll have to schedule pick up at a Fed-Ex store near me.

    I haven't seen anyone that ordered from B&H get it yet.

    My order is still shown as Backordered.

    Today is the official Note 9 released date, so hope to hear updates soon.. fingers crossed.

    As of this morning, the website has gone from "expected availability Aug. 24" to "coming soon". I don't know if that indicates a delay, or if it's just a change that occurs automatically when the specified date arrives and they haven't manually updated the status yet.

    Yup - just verifying that it says the same thing for my 8/10 preorder. "New Item - Coming Soon". I honestly think it's just an automatic change for the date, not really a true order status update.

    According to their Live Chat just now, it's not yet in stock and they don't know when it will be.

    I might just cancel it today and pick one up in a local store.

    ***EDIT**
    I canceled with them, and went to Amazon. Same preorder bonuses, and since I live in NJ I'm still taxed either way.

    Isn't it too late for the preorder bonus?

    The B&H web page now says "More on the way. Expected availability 24 hours."

    Nope, not too late. Amazon still had the same pre order bonus as B&S ...I mean B&H.

    I think he means the headphones or fortnite promotion. That no longer applies as of today.

    Don't we have a few weeks for the headphone promo?? The Fortnite promo was never a deal with the B&H pre purchase, which is why I went for it.

    The headphone-or-Fortnite promo was offered by Samsung on all pre-orders, regardless of whom you pre-order from. If Samsung is also offering either freebie without a pre-order, I'm not aware of it.

    Hi, I have placed order for 128gb on 8/17. I just saw it turns to “processing” instead of “backorder”. Promising!

    My order is showing "Processing too".

    Good that B&H comes good with the pre-order.

    Hope to receive the phone soon!

    On the 10th. Just shipped. Not bad, only one business day later than originally expected.

    Just received confirmation that my order was shipped out today too! (I also ordered earlier)

    So happy to get the extra 2 items (wireless charger + Dex) from B&H on top of the Samsung Pre-order gifts (B&H deals are the same as Amazon).

    Great! B&H chat told me they will be shipping out for me today but no updates by the end of the day (ordered 15th).

    For me, B&H is better than Amazon because of tax-free - saving extra $110.

    Good point about the sales tax benefit through B&H if ordered outside of NY and NJ.

    I live in NJ, sales tax was about $83 for my 512G Note 9 ($1249.99).
