    My In store pickup order still shows preordered and processing. Paid in full for pickup at Best Buy Mobile in Largo, FL. Wonder if I need to call to make sure everything is OK. S8+ for AT&T Midnight Black.

    Good luck to those of you trying to pickup today. In my experience Best Buy systems will not allow the sale before the device release day.
    That's correct....unless they give us the go ahead to start selling them early like the S7 launch.

    If some of the members here are getting email notifications that the phones are "Ready For Pickup Today" then, I don't see why that person would not be able to have their order picked up.

    Also remember, the members that opted to "Preorder online with In-Store Pickup" have already paid for their devices. So they bypass the registers all together.

    So if we got the email ready for pick up, would we be able to get them since technically the order was charged 2 days ago? I received an email for my return and email with the finance agreement too.

    Quick question about the $100 off. Is that only an att thing at bb or is it for all the cell companies with pre-orders at bb? My sister and I did out pre-orders the same day, but I'm with att and she's with sprint. I don't recall her person telling her anything about the 100 off.
    It's a BB promotion for all carriers we work with. (vzw,sprint and att)

    I think my long story is earlier in this thread, but end result is this was done in store. Doesn't matter if they activate it or I do, as long as it's not a long wait.

    Not going to try for tonight unless there's overwhelming success stories. I'm out of work early tomorrow so I can wait one more day.

    The receipt shows my wife's name (she's the account owner), but I manage the accounts so I was told there won't be a problem (I'm authorized), and I don't expect one, but you never know.

    Thats whats up in the air. I haven't read that anyone that received the "Your Order Is Ready For Pickup Today" Actually was able to pick up their phone yet. However, it's still very early as well.

    What I'm trying to decipher is that the members that's getting ""Your Order Is Ready For Pickup Today" if they are In-Store Preorders or Online Preorders?

    What I'm leaning towards is that MAYBE Online Preorders may be able to get picked up today versus in-store preorders. That's just my guess though...lol

    What gets me wondering is that the website says ready to pick up. And available March 30th.
    But the email I got says tomorrow. So are they letting us get them tonight? I did in-store order.

    MY IN STORE STORY...

    I ordered mine online for store delivery. The app notified me this morning that it was ready for pick-up so I went in.

    Went to the pickup counter and the guy grabbed my phone from their stock. I began to salivate as he laid it on the counter in front to of me. Unfortunately, when he tried to process the sale his POS system beeped and wouldn't let him ring it up.

    After manager intervention I left the store with an apology, a $50 gift card for my troubles and a "we'll see you tomorrow..."
