BestBuy pre-order Win7

Has anyone received any updates from their BestBuy pre-order of win7? At the time of the pre-order they advertised that we would receive on Oct. 22 but I have yet to hear anything from them. I checked online and order status has been in process shipping in 1-2 days, but it's been like that for the last 4-5 days.

You are correct, but if they haven't shipped yet there's no way we can have them on the 22nd.

What are you talking about? Do you not understand how the mail/delivery services work?

I received my email confirmations that the orders were shipped 2 days ago (Monday 10/19/2009).

"Your order has been shipped by Ground by CanadaPost Ground."

Well, you're better off than me.

I just checked 5 minutes ago and got the reply that my order was in the process of being filled. My guess is that the order won't ship until late today or early tomorrow -- and unless it ships locally to me, I won't get it until Friday.

So, I may not be the only one who doesn't get their Best Buy pre-order on the 22nd.

Well, mine got changed to "shipped" this morning (22nd) (on bestbuy.com also got an e-mail at 5:40 AM PST). The carrier is mail express.biz or something (never heard of them) When i track it, it keeps telling me no info found. I have no idea when I'll get it, because I don't even know the origin + never had any experience with mailexpress.biz. Hopefully tomorrow for the weekend install.

Wouldn't it have been much easier, assuming it was an option, to have your pre-order just go to the store, so you could pick it up today?

It wasn't an option at pre-order time or after that. That's how I wanted to arrange it, but there was no choice to do so.
