    I pre-ordered from Best Buy online last night but chose to have it shipped to my house. Anyone know if I'm still able to go to the store at a later date and trade in my S7edge for the gift card?
    I believe you have to do in store to be eligible. So you won't be eligible.

    I preordered the S9+ at my local Best Buy store. Is there any chance that Best Buy will release the preordered phones earlier than March 16th?

    I called them directly and changed my shipping to in store so I can trade in my s7 edge.

    in the past, the stores have not released it early with the exception of the S7.

    however, when the S8 came out, Best Buy orders that were shipped received it early, while the store waited until release day.

    The only way they breach the date is if Verizon retail stores breach as well.

    That is a good deal. But this is the Best Buy thread. I ordered via Best Buy because they offered the s9 plus for 100 off which essentially made it the same price as tmobile and samsung but better then paying 100 more anywhere else.

    I preordered the Verizon S9+ from Best Buy. This may be a stupid question, but does anyone know if a new sim card will be included in the box? My current phone has a micro sim, so I'll need a nano. Not interested in cutting it down myself.

    I never did preorders from bestbuy but today the taxes they took for the phone is back into my bank account I'm confused why they did that. Also I did shipping to my house.

    Does Best Buy also offer the trade in program Samsung is doing if you buy through Samsung Direct?

    They do a preauthorization when you place your order but it's not completed until the order shops. Depending on the banks timeframe if the preauthorization falls off which is what happened.

    Yeah.... I'm in Missouri and was only charged the state portion of the sales tax initially I am keeping enough to cover the county/city sales tax in case. I know Amazon only has to charge the state portion so if it stays that way I saved about another $100 over the two phones rather than ordering from Verizon or going in store.

    Preordered a VZ S9+in blue for myself and giving back my S8 which is 50% paid for so no trade in on that one. But my daughter has an S7 which I am trading in. Did that in store and was given the choice to apply the trade in to the monthly payments.

    I'll find out when the both come in on the 16th (not counting on an early release) and pick them up to find out how well this is going to work out but was told I have two weeks to return the S7. I should be getting a mailer directly from Verizon to send back my S8.

    A new charge/authorization hit my card at 12:06am ET this morning for my original order on March 2nd at 12:05am ET which is also still pending. Wonder if that's a sign. I placed a second order at 7:46am ET on March 2nd so if it's just another hold then I guess it will try again in 21 minutes but that also means I have a double hold on the funds.

    I pre-ordered a lilac purple S9. I pre-ordered after March 2 though so didn't get the $100 off, but they still have $50 off. I didn't realize I was going to get the S9 until after March 2. I realized my financing plan doesn't end until October so there was no way I wanted to wait until then to upgrade. I paid off the remaining balance, and figured with a trade-in it kind of evens out. This also puts me on schedule with the Samsung S series releases, so next time I want an upgrade it should be around when another S phone is out. I ordered the Verizon variant. I heard Verizon doesn't let you apply the trade-in towards your financing plan, so I plan to use my S7 trade-in amount at BB directly on the finance plan. Plus I don't really like dealing directly with Verizon anyway, so we will see how it is through BB.

    I'm really excited! Can't wait to pick up the phone and start using it.

    I placed two orders for the Galaxy S9+ Verizon on March 2nd the first was a Midnight Black at 12:05am ET and the second for a Lilac Purple at 7:46am ET and a charge was placed on my account at that time. Those charges are still pending but this morning a new charge for the first order was taken from my bank at 12:06am ET and for the second order at 7:47am ET. Exactly 6 days and 1 minute since the original went through. Is being charged again happening because the order is processing? I know Sprint has shipped to a few as of this morning. But as of right now the funds are out of my account twice.

    I haven't been billed yet but I am also picking mines up in store. It says it should be ready on the 16th. I know there is an extremely slim chance it will be ready before hand so I'm not getting any of my hopes up lol... Still excited to get the phone and at least I'll get all weekend to play with it.
