I wanted to pre-order a couple in order to get 40% off with the available code which was supposed to expire yesterday. Turns out the code is still working today (as of 9am US central time) so I was able to get one book that came out today.
As to the larger general question. I've only pre-ordered stuff when there's a really good deal involved and I want to make sure I get that price, but I know a few people who like to be able to pre-order a book when they hear about it and not have to remember when it comes out.
