    So I've officially made up my mind and I'm going with the Verizon preorder instead of Best Buy. Is there anything that needs to be done to cancel the preorder? Of course Best Buy doesn't have a convenient chat feature that I can use while at work. When I asked the guy working while I was placing the order, he said "just don't show up" and your preorder will be cancelled. No offense to anybody who make work at Best Buy, but I realize most of the time they don't know what they are talking about and I don't want to get screwed. I do realize I'm stuck with the $50 gift card and I'm fine with that. I just don't want to be receiving a bill in the mail in a couple months for the phone or something.

    If its worth getting the $50 back, go by the store and try to cancel it for a refund. I believe you can actually get a refund of that $50 gift card, since it was part of a pre-order. I've never done it personally, but pretty sure I've read of others who've gotten refunds on those deposits. Might be worth a shot anyways!

    Thanks,but I think I'd rather just keep the gift cards. I've already fully used one of them and a few dollars off the other one. I'll probably just hang onto the gift cards that way when I want a new game or something I can pretend it's free. I've been married a few years so I'm learning the tricks of spending money without her complaining about me wasting. "Oh I already had this gift card laying around anyways" is a great excuse that I have in my back pocket now.

    The store employee was correct in this case. They require a $50 gift card purchase in hopes that you won't leave the phone but if you do after 14 days it no longer has your name on it and will be sold to the next customer. There is no penalty other than your stuck with a $50 gift card.

    Thanks for the response. My email actually says 72 hours. As long as there is no penalty then I won't bother doing anything. Maybe if Verizon screws up my pre-order then I'll end up using my Best Buy pre-order.

    Any Sprint users in here know if Best Buy will do the legacy plans $19/mo Loyalty Credit on leases for the s6 like they're doing with the Note, s5, and iPhones? I asked at my BB yesterday, but they didn't know. I then chatted with Sprint today, and the rep said the $15 loyalty credit applies to ANY device eligible for leasing -- including the s6. This leads me to believe BB will eventually offer the Sprint Lease deal, but was just wondering if anyone had heard definitively. I'd obviously like to preorder with BB rather than Sprint, both because they give the extra $4/mo AND they're offering the charging mat with preorders.

    If Best Buy does not match the full retail price of Verizon, I will definitely cancel my order. Their full retail based on their website for the 32GB S6 is $749 versus $599 at Verizon.

    Well it is in their written policy so you can always speak to a manager. I confirmed it yesterday.

    There are worse things than being stuck with a Best Buy gift card as they don't expire and you can give them to me if you don't want it.

    I hear you and I have done it many times but matching carrier prices is not in any best buy written policy.

    Maybe it's just phones paid for at full price.

    Yep it is. If it's on contract then it's kinda hit or miss.

    Yeah, they always price matched off contract phones with other carriers when I got my phones at BB.

    Does Verizon S6 unlocked and can be used with AT&T?
    If yes, I'd rather pay $600 retail price and use it with at&t. My brother is with Verizon so he can buy it for me, I hope.

    VZW is on CDMA and AT&T is GSM.

    Best Buy's preorder portal on the website is down, and you must go into the store. I will ask about the price match also!

    I don't think you can, since this is not an order yet. It's a presale. I don't think you can track an order until you've paid for something that is to be shipped to you.

    Thank you. So i guess with BB Pre-orders there is no chance we can get the phone earlier than the 10th?
