Harry Potter SHIPPED TODAY

To my surprise, I just received my shipping notice from bestbuy.com I pre-ordered it during the $10 GC deal. Bestbuy never shipped anything to me before the offical release date. Has it been moved up? Now I'll just have to wait and see if I'll be getting the GC.

It's probably the fact that Warner sent out the DVD's way early. The Movie Gallery I work at got our shipment of HP in May 16 and we've just had to hide them in the back. I'd suspect everyone else got them in about the same time, allowing for early shipment in order to reach people exactly on the release date.

The other thing to consider is that the Memorial Day holiday falls the day before release, so copies are being sent early to allow for that, too. There are no deliveries on the holiday.

Amazon sent me an email that they shipped mine on 5/21. I almost fainted.

This is the same company that always used to mail stuff on the street date!! Nice job, Amazon.

I jumped on the Costco deal and got shipment confirmation on Tuesday. It hasn't arrived yet, but I was very surprised!

I don't want to get anyone in trouble for breaking street date on this, but one online retailer with deep discounts shipped mine on 5/17.

DDD shipped mine on 5/20. Based on historical trends, I won't see it until release day anyway.

Mine shipped yesterday from DDD. I'm hoping since I live close to the warehouse, I will get it sooner. Do they ship media mail or first class?

Columbia House showed mine shipped when I checked on Monday 5/20. Never thought they'd ship early!

Has anyone who ordered from Playcentric had their copy ship? I don't do a lot of pre-orders online, but the two Star Trek: Next Generation sets I got from Playcentric arrived the Friday and Saturday prior to the street dates, respectively. But they have not shipped Harry Potter yet.

I received notification that mine shipped from costco on the 23rd. Damn, No costco's here and I was thinking of going to Dallas on Monday. I hope it arrives by then so I can PU my free movie at a B&M. Just my luck, I will probably have to postpone my trip for a few days........

I GOT IT TODAY!!!!!!!!

Mine shipped on 5/21 from DDD, but as I said earlier, I live in Illinois and that's where DDD is located, so shipping didin't take as long. Now I can have everyone over to watch it this weekend

A guy at Rite Aid drugstore in Arlington, VA was putting them out this morning at 24.99 for the Dvd. Also had the VHS out to.

I got mine from DDD yesterday. They didn't send me a shipping notification e-mail like they usually do, so it was a nice surprise.

I'm kicking myself for going with DDD. I could have had it for cheaper and gotten it on the release date going with B&M. Living in Illinois means I get charged with sales tax, and it seems higher than usual at DDD. One would think I would get it sooner than some since I live in the same state as DDD but nope, a week after it shipped, still no Harry Potter.

P.S. This is not an anti-DDD post, just a lament that buying DVDs on-line doesn't really compete with B&M anymore.
