That's what I was thinking. But hey, I'd rather it be too big than too small! I'd rather not spend $30 for one online including shipping. Thanks!

Have you had any pre-order experience with Best Buy? I've never pre-ordered with them for in-store pick up before (or at all for that matter), and am wanting to know how things usually are handled. Good? Bad? If I do pre-order, where do I pick it up when I go next tuesday? I'm fairly certain I will, $11 savings is pretty sweet deal.

You should be fine.

Have your documents ready...... especially your confirmation e-mail, photo id and credit card used.

They currently have a caveat that gives you $10 if they can't fulfill your service request in 1 minute I believe. BUT the time count begins when You turn over your service request & documents.

Be organized and you should be fine.

All Orders are at the Customer Service desk.

Store Pickup at my 2 stores is usually quite seamless.

Alright, thanks very much for the info! Sounds fast and easy (that's what she said!). I'll be there at 10:00 am tuesday waiting (assuming the pre-order is ready then?). Can't wait to watch the office all next week!

$33 for a half-season of The Office!? I think I'll pass until a more reasonable price comes along.

Thanks for the info though!

One more thing I'd suggest for picking up The Office; go early. Sometimes they'll pull the wrong version when the same title has multiple releases. Since the box is limited you want to make sure they still have some available if they try to pull that crap on you. I'm not going to be there when they open, but I'm going to try to be there sometime that first day just in case.

I was just coming here to post that too. It says in the graphic at the top of the sale page "Excludes pre-orders and new releases", but I'm able to order The Office, Life, Big Bang Theory and Scrubs at 25% off. All righty, then!

I might get the set and then flip the shirt on eBay to fray some of the cost of the set.

Good point. I remember when I had preordered POTC: At World's End on Blu-Ray. I had ordered the first two along with it because of the sale. When I went to the pick-up counter, they gave me the three movies, I left the store and as I checked them, I noticed they had given me two copies of the first movie and none of the second. It was becuase of the similar packaging. They fixed it easy enough. This is the only time it happened to me...but it does happen.
