    Hi all,

    I've often picked up orders from Bestbuy.com but have never had one shipped. Now that they have free shipping on everything and a $10 coupon for LoTR preorders, I was contemplating preordering this online from them.

    My question is: do preorders tend to come on street date? This is one title I'm itching to watch but if Bestbuy.com routinely ships late, I'd rather just get it in-store somewhere (it will be a loss leader, no doubt, somewhere) rather than wait.

    Thanks in advance!

    I think that it has more to do with:
    The releasing company of the DVD,
    When their warehouse gets stock,
    When you placed the order,
    How far away you are from the warehouse used to ship the order.

    As I have received Pre-Orders from Bestbuy.com both a week early and a week late and any time between....

    Some have shipped from CA, FL, TX, and others from Il.
