3-Pack Superbit Ships from Best Buy [DEAD]

I searched but couldn't find the original "Best Buy / Superbit" thread. Just wanted to give a heads-up to anyone who ordered the 3-Pack Superbit Collection (Desperado / CTHD / Fifth Element) for $9.99. I just got an email saying that my order shipped! This has been backordered since mid-August and I thought for sure they could eventually cancel orders, but BB came through

Arghhh... Earlier this week, BB had attempted to charge my credit card that hours before had been cancelled since my card numbers were close to a series of numbers that had been stolen. I covered with another card, but no movement on my backorder.

I'll have to check my order. It was placed on backorder for 90 days.....

Mine's still on backorder.

I'm pretty sure it's not available for ordering from their site. They removed it shortly after several of us placed orders in August and it went on backorder. That's why I put [DEAD] in the thread title.

Darn

I thought this had no chance and didn't renew it when they asked if I want to keep it or cancel it. And I really wanted this too T_T

Yes I noticed that (smacks forehead) but they dont even sell it for any price! Amazon sell the 3 pack for $ 36.98 but BB must have just decided we can buy the single superbits for 9.99 and be happy with that.

Extended my order a little while back but still backordered for me. Guess I'm further back in line.

Ditto and what galls me is that they attempted to charge my card last week within minutes of it being closed due to credit card numbers similar to it being compromised. Mine wasn't, but they closed mine on the chance. So, now I don't get the DVD's.

Canceled as well. What I find appalling is that there is no tone of apology in BB's dealings. There is no attempt to further customer relations by making a similar offer or offering a future discount or any such similar tactics which are so representative of most other retailers in similar circumstances. Thats what I hate about BB - I will never give them my business unless its a good price and if its at their cost or lower than cost.
