    Just called my local Best Buy (Pasadena, CA) and they said that they aren't getting the Incredibles until this Friday the 30th.

    Anyone else have this issue? I guess she double checked her computer. I'll call again tomorrow to confirm.

    When i pre-ordered the original BB Storm at BestBuy they had a pre-order list of about 15 people and got 2 phones in. Everyone else had to wait a few more days. I will never pre-order there again

    I felt smart now I feel like an idiot.

    Online had free activation AND $30 promo code.

    If BB doesn't accept the promo code I'm flick them off and get my gift card returned.

    I don't really understand why they let more people preorder than they will have stock available. I understand that they might not know how many they'll get, but people preorder with the thought they will get it on launch day, not just have priority.

    i pre ordered mine at best buy too. i will be going there today now and making sure they will it in stock on 4/29, and have enough in stock. the whole damn point of pre ordering is to be guaranteed that you will have the product the day it releases. if they don't get it until 4/30 then they don't get my sale, simple as that.

    If BB doesn't have the DI on 4/29, will they allow you to return the gift card you had to purchase to pre-order the DI?

    My Best Buy in Irvine, CA hasn't gotten theirs yet either. I'll be a very unhappy camper if I have to wait any longer than the 29th.

    my best buy has them at the store according to an employee but they are adamant about giving them up till the 29th. I'd be pissed if they weren't there till 30th although worse things could happen :D

    I checked with my local BB in Corona and they don't have it either. The good thing is that their is a VZW coorporate store in the same shopping center. I may go their first thing Thursday morning and purchase it their and return the BB gift cards. I don't want to take any chances........

    If I can actually return the gift card I'll do that and order it offline with the $30 coupon.

    This is how the conversation went with the Best Buy.

    Me: Have you gotten in the HTC Incredibles for the 29th release?
    BB: Even if we have we can’t give them out until the 29th. (Huh? I didn't know that's what I asked?)
    Me: I know, but I want to know if they have arrived so I know if I can get them on the 29th or not.
    BB: No, not here. (Informative and extremely helpful!)
    Me: When will they arrive? Do you think you will get them before the 29th.
    BB: Probably, I’m not sure. (Really, such great help you are.)
    Me: I’ll try again tomorrow.
    BB: Why do you want to know? (Is this really happening?)
    Me: I promised your mother I would pay her in Incredibles for that amazing thing she does with her mouth.
    BB: Sir that isn’t necessary.
    Me: I know, but she insisted. High five.

    my BB just told me they are not guaranteeing they will have it on the 29th. They get there shipments on Tuesday and Thursday, none are in the store now so hopefully they get them Thursday. I cannot get a refund either because it's a $50 gift card. Im kinda pissed now, if I knew this, I would have just preordered online

    The CSR at Best Buy told me after I preordered that whenever I arrive after opening on the 29th at their Best Buy, that I can come pay the rest and pick it up.

    According to their return policy, you are able to return it IF it hasn't been used (no brainer).

    Where can I find that? I called and told them that if they didn't give me the $30 that I was going online.

    They told me I can't return gift card. I looked on the return policy on the receipt and the only thing pertaining to non-returnable is:

    "Non-returnable items:
    pre-paid cards such as music, photo, video, or phone cards"

    But this wouldn't apply to that would it??? I see nothing about 'gift cards'..

    Any lawyers?

    Smurfing Best Buy. This doesn't really surprise me though. I just keep thinking this time will be different, or it won't happen to me.

    "Yeah, let's take as many preorders as we can get, announce that we're going to get them in on release day, when in fact we can't, but - and here's the best part - we force them to buy a Gift Card authenticating their preorder, so they think 'hey NICE, I already got 50 down on it!' when in fact this prevents them from returning that Gift Card under our Prepaid cards policy. So we get all the people that thought they were getting the same product from Verizon on the same date, but turns out we stole that "release date" market and now they gotta wait. Absolutely brilliant!"

    Money grubbing bastardos.

    Oh wait. Really sorry! I misread the return policy. I thought I read that you could return the gift card but it was only the items purchased with the gift card. Well... if you have enough money, then you could just save the gift card to buy anything at Best Buy with later on! I know that if they don't have enough on the 29th, then I will be piiiiiiissed. But from what they're attitude is, they're confident that I will get one.
