I did and I'm wondering if anyone else is having the same problems with BB that I'm having. I bought the TV through the website for $678.99US plus tax with free shipping and set a delivery date for December 3. Two days later I got an email saying they hadn't been able to reach me to set a delivery date (false, it was confirmed on my receipt). On calling them I was told it was probably because the TV was currently out of stock and wouldn't have another one for delivery until December 9. Then another notice that once again there was no delivery date. Another call to BB and they reset the delivery date to December 14, then later that day reset it again to December 10, then tonight they reset it once again to December 11. I'm starting to worry that at some point I'll get a call saying it's no longer available and the order has been cancelled.
Oh, and just to make things more interesting my online invoice also now shows a new $70 delivery charge vs my original invoice which says free delivery. I'm hoping this is all just general BB incompetence that will eventually work itself out but since I already bought an AVR and TV stand to go with it I'm definitely a little nervous I'll be left without a TV.
Anyone else having a similar experience? Anyone receive their TV yet?
I originally had a date of December 4th for delivery. I hadn't received any emails other than the first saying they received my order. I noticed yesterday that the date was not present when I checked my online status.
I called Best Buy and they said it was back ordered and that I needed a new date. I asked if a store nearby had stock that I could go to and get the TV. I was told that they see now that I'm set for delivery on the 4th. I left the call not feeling overly comfortable I'd see the tv on Wednesday.
I poked around the website a bit and found that the best buy closest to me actually had it in stock. I called Best Buy this morning and asked if I could change from delivery to store pickup. They looked up the store and said there were a couple in stock so no problem.
Went to the store a half hour after opening and 15 minutes later walked out with the TV.
I'd see if any local stores have it in stock.
