I freaked when I saw the purple and ordered it immediately! Cancelled the blue. Now the cover and the Paperwhite are due the same day, Oct 3. Woo hoo!

At the rate the feds are printing new money lately, why even bother collecting income taxes anyway? The states still need some money though, which is why they view online sales with as a potential revenue stream for state sales taxes.

California will probably not be the last state to pass laws requiring Amazon to send them sales tax money.

Mine. alas, is still sitting in "Not yet shipped" status. It still says delivery on the 2nd, though, so I'm hoping the status changes (for the better) sometime today.


Yay! Mine is "Shipping Soon" now too, as of 9:42 AM ET.

Mine is at "Shipping Soon" too!

In other words, we got them on the day they were tentatively scheduled to begin shipping.

So if, and that is a big IF, Amazon ships the PW in time to be delivered a day earlier than tentatively scheduled, in other words to be delivered on Monday, then we should see our shipping status change to "Shipping Soon" either today (Saturday) or tomorrow (Sunday). Like I said that is a big if and they might not ship until Monday, or even later.
Looks like some of us might get them tomorrow!

Two of mine changed to "shipping soon", but one is still "not shipped yet".

EDIT: Two of them will be shipped to kindle developers in Europe, so we can get some of our more popular hacks updated for Paperwhite support ASAP.

If they do, they will already be in the stores waiting to go on the shelves. BB inventory arrives on Tue or Wed so if they didn't get them in last week, it would be later in the week when they hit the shelf.

I would ask another salesperson.

One of the many reasons I quit dealing with Best Buy was their inability to know what they have in stock, much less what they might have in the future. I've called and been told a store doesn't have an item. That store looks up what is available at other stores in the area then gives me the number of another store that stocks that item, supposedly. I call that store just to be told they don't stock the item but their computer shows the referring store does!?! WTF? I'm basically put in a loop. It took a trip to the referring store and finding a manager who eventually located a case of the items in their storage room. They had it all along. I've also had very bad luck when ordering online with BB and when I get to the store I'm either told the order isn't processed are they have substituted another item because what I ordered was not in stock. This happened at least 3 times and afterwards I quit using BB. I can definitely see why BB is having to shut so many stores and scale back.
