That's exactly what I did. I have it pre-ordered on both amazon and best buy. I called my local best buy and they said it should arrive on Oct. 8, but when I went in person they had no idea.... Ugh...

Yep, you can ask 5 different BB people the same question and get at least 10 different answers! I'm pretty sure that one requirement for getting hired by BB is total cluelessness and the complete lack of ability to overcome it.

Mine was listed as "Shipping Soon" when I checked early this morning but just now updated to "Shipped." There is a serial number now associated with it too.

It will be interesting to see what the scheduled delivery date is once UPS has it in their possession. Mine is shipping from Chattanooga, TN. Wonder if it will be taking the Chattanooga Choo Choo? (Old country song for those wondering...)

I am excited about hearing the first hands-on reports, though. It'll give me something to look forward to, because this next week is going to be a killer for me. Yet another reason why I'm not changing my order--I'll hardly have time to breathe, let alone read!

Identical situation here (10/10) and I ordered within 10 minutes of the site going live on 9/6. Others who ordered on 9/7 have received shipping notices. Amazon's lack of shipping based on order receipt really ticks me off. A day or two is acceptable but a WEEK? No!

I ordered 2 PWs without offers on the 6th and then cancelled on the 8th and ordered 2 with offers to move my delivery up from the 11th to the 3ed. One of the two has shipped and the other has not according to my order. Both are from the same order transaction and both show a delivery date of the 2nd. Neither has a serial number (I actually have 4 kindles associated to my acct since the first cancelled order still shows up on my device list - hope that sorts out ok).

Regarding the first come does not equal first served lameness, I played it in my favor for the blue case. It had a delivery date of the 31st on the 8th when I ordered but I have been checking every now and then and today a new order shows a delivery date of the 3ed so I ordered it. Once I get it I'll cancel my other order assuming it comes first (and I expect it will).
