Hey, I'm just trying to figure out who's gotten their 3 disc set of Toy Story from Buy.com and why some did and some didn't. Could you please post some info such as date ordered, price paid, state, and if you got it yet, and see if we can find some pattern? Thanks.
Haven't received it (sent to warehouse)
Ordered on 9/1
Paid $37.49
Live in IL

If I don't get some good news when I call buy.com today, I'm going to Best Buy during lunch and pay an extra $2.

I had the exact same idea!

ordered 8/25/00
$40.97 (CA sales tax)
San Diego, CA

Mine hasn't shipped yet, and I will go to Best Buy today to get it and cancel my order. Buy.com use to be so good about beating street date!

Update: I got mine at BestBuy today for $39.99. Buy.com claims mine shipped today as well, so if it shows up I'll sell it to a friend. I don't know about anyone else, but one of the reasons I order from Buy is their (usual) shipping before street.

Update 10/19: Mine shipped Tues the 17th, recieved it yesterday Wed the 18th, sold it to a friend. It could have been worse, I could have ordered it from Express.com!

I preordered mine on 8/12, paid $37, supposed to go to Iowa. Hadn't shipped as of yesterday afternoon, so I called and cancelled. Picked it up this morning for $2 more at Best Buy.

Order finally says shipped yesterday, no e-mail from them though. With sales tax it would be more like $4-$5 bucks more at Best Buy. I guess I'll wait.

Ordered July 21(!)
I live in CA.
Status is "On Order".
I paid too much for it (47.49)!

Does anyone know what happens if you cancel
an order at Buy.com that was partially paid
with gift certificates? Are they good about
this kind of thing or should I just forget
about it?

I've cancelled a couple of orders where I used a GC and got back the GC with no problems. What they do is reinstate the amount of the GC in the GC history of the account. The problem is actually cancelling the order in time

I ordered on 8/21, located in California. Not received yet. Paid the 47.49, but with a 30 off 150 coupon, so at about 20% off, even with tax and shipping, it ends up at about $46 total. Not worth hassling with an order cancel, since buying at BestBuy at $39.99 plus tax is about $43.

I hope y'all remember to factor in the price of gas and time to go down and hassle with the crowds at BestBuy. Hmmm.... let's see, if you get 20 mpg, and the store is 10 miles away, it's going to cost you 2 bucks to go pick up some discs. Since most people here are pretty proud of milking the last dime out of a deal (not a bad thing, just part of the challenge, and a lot of fun), I think there should be a "gas factor" for B&M purchases. This last Sunday at the Oxnard, CA store was pretty frustrating with some of the sale titles not available 1/2 hour after they opened, and a long line at checkout.

Ordered UTB from Buy.com on 8/29. My account still says "sent to warehouse" and their website shows that they don't even have it in stock ("on order"). This sucks!

Struz- just curious, how is it you received a shipment on a Sunday?

Looks like mine still hasn't shipped so I put in a cancel request and picked it up at Best Buy.

Well I talked to them on Wednesday about when my would ship and they told me no later than the 19th. Today is the 20th so I called them again and they now say it could be 2 to 5 weeks. WTF 2-5 weeks.....somebody in my town I hope is selling the Ultimate set.

I have no idea. Every shipment I get from Buy
comes on Sunday.
Weird.
I didn't know the PO delivers on Sundays.
I guess they just do packages on Sundays.
