Default How reliable is Best Buy with their delivery dates?

I ordered two movies at the same time which are both new releases for tomorrow. One shipped on Thursday and arrived today. The other hasn't shipped yet, but still says I'll get it Wednesday. Just wondering how reliable Best Buy is, and if I'll really get the item by Wednesday? Any thoughts?

Most of my movie purchases for the last year-and-a-half or so have been with Best Buy. I haven't done too many pre-orders through them but all of my orders have been shipped and received in a pretty timely manner. I think the pre-orders I have done typically arrived 3-4 days before the release date.

Virtually all my preorders with BBY have been on or before release day. The exception are most of those MOD disc whether WAC/Sony/Universal which always seem late.

I have had a couple items ship and arrive in 24 hrs usually shipped from one of the local stores (usually in release item, not preorders) instead of the main KY warehouse. I'm not sure if there are some stores that are used as hubs for shipping or it's just been random, but 2 or 3 Store names on the return address/invoice frequently pop up. Most of teh inaccuracy I've had has been the other direction -- saying it will arrive in 5-10 days and it shows up 2-3 days.

Mine had an ETA of being shipped out today and arriving by Friday. So I'll let you know how mine goes.

Most of our BB movie orders arrive within 2-3 days, via their free shipping option. I find BB's delivery estimates to be more of a worse case scenario. The actual items usually arrive much sooner. On occasion, when something shipped late, they even expedited the delivery to make sure we'd have it by the original estimated date. Though being a plus member might have something to do with it, but even before we qualified for plus, their shipping times were better than average.

Didn't want to create a new thread and found this but just last night I placed an order for a video game and to my surprise it offers free "Next-Day Delivery" service and I get it by tomorrow. That is truly awesome! Even better than Prime (game was also more expensive on Amazon).

I am also just Elite member and not Elite Plus.

I always get the order when they tell me I'll get it. Unfortunately it's always a day later than I could've gotten it if UPS didn't hand off to USPS.

Here's something that surprised me though. I placed an order for the Alien 4K steelbook on the Monday night it became available again, got a shipping confirmation on Tuesday that it would arrive on Thursday, which I was not expecting at all. But it arrived on Wednesday. Even though the package said Lexington on it, tracking shows that it came from the other side of my state, which has no distribution center. Did it come from another Best Buy?

If you are a UPS MyChoice Premium member then you can upgrade most of those to UPS Ground instead of SurePost and get them a day earlier -- it won't upgrade MailInnovations packages which appear to a different UPS/USPS hybrid

I can't remember if there are still any Free 3-6 month promos or if it's included as part of some other service, but there are frequently $1/month promotions that I've been cycling for a couple years. Over Christmas they even had a promotion with gave 3 free months and a $10 Target Gift Card so essentially another almost year essentially for free.

I've found the service to be quite useful for $10 a year or less.

I order from Best Buy all the time and often get new releases either the Saturday or the Monday before release date. Best Buy is much more reliable than Target IMO. At least, in my experience they are. I have had quite a few issues with pre-ordering from Target as far as shipping goes.
