Does anyone else have this also for their pre-order? Is it just a wild guess by Amazon on the overall release date because the product is not yet released? Or does it mean that, based on the number of pre-orders, they estimate being able to fill my specific order on March 25?
If you would like the remote asap, I would cancel your order. Best Buy will receive stock weeks before Amazon. The Harmony One should be at Best Buy retail stores within two weeks.
At least for now, there is no reason to order from Amazon, as they are charging full MSRP. At Best Buy, use this 10% off coupon
plus any Rewards coupons that you have.
If you are willing to wait until late March or April, I'm sure Amazon will have a cheaper price. Amazon always charges more for preorders than they do shipping product.
