I find this to be more of the "dealer" in the scenario. I get paid, do my budget, look on here , decide I can live without food for a bit, and feed my addiction instead. Lol

I never miss out on any pre-orders for Target, BB or Walmart.

Walmart sure misses out on their steelbook preorders (or lack thereof).

Why was it a different story on my end?

If there is a preorder link shows up, I make sure to pre-order it and either Picku-Up to Store/Ship to home.


You complain about snakes, where the mere fact you admit - You Pay Extra on It!

I was really surprised to be able to order a 3D copy of Doctor Strange steelbook around 6:00 Tuesday morning for in-store pickup. Got a text 45 minutes before store opened that it was already placed aside for me. Got there at 12 so nervous they were going to mistakenly give me a 2D steelbook (honest mistake).

They gave me the correct 3D steelbook in mint condition. Walked around the store and they only had three 2D steelbooks left back in the new release section. Hopefully I can do that same for Moana 3D. But the user Tyrok is claiming that this one might be even more limited.

Do these store pick up options usually go live around midnight the day of release? Or does it sometimes take past 3am for it to go live?

Sometimes - a month before street date.

Nothing wrong to frequently check your Bestbuy.com

Easy peasy. Say I want to order Moana 3D steelbok, I log into my Best Buy account, then I just click on "Pre-Order", then I go to check out. Wait a minute, I can preorder but I cannot select shipping and I cannot do store pickup. Hmm...

You may be onto something here.

I pre-ordered one for store pick-up just 3 hours ago. I will still go first thing in the morning to see if I can pick 1 out myself at my preferred store but if they're gone by the time I get there I have my store pick-up at the backup store to fall back on. If I do get one myself I just call and cancel the store pickup once I get to work. I did that for Civil War and Hateful 8.

Buy them on bestbuy.com a week before release. Never a problem.

I still don't see why people don't preorder as soon they see it listed on this site, if the price drops they match it, if another offer comes along all you have to do is cancel and reorder, if you're scared about their shipping methods, order a second when pickup is available. Most people get their steelbooks before release date when shipped so at least you'll know if you need to go to the store or not. Return the damaged or extra copy. Simple as pie, and never miss out on another steelbook again

They usually come back in stock on release day but sell out pretty quick... Then come back and sell out and repeat till they completely sell out a couple of weeks later

I just stopped into my local Best Buy the morning of release for Wonder Woman and Starship Troopers. They had about 20 copies of Wonder Woman and I got the only Starship Troopers they had. In talking to the guy stocking the shelves, they are now limiting the quantities of in store purchases to 2 copies per person to help against a single person buying them all up and selling for a profit. I'm not sure if this is just a store specific thing or a company initiative.

100% correct, they dont preorder...then people complain they're sold out haha. I have yet to miss a Best Buy Steelbook all the way back to like the 2 Guns Metal Pak which was my first Steel from BB...cannot believe that's 4 years ago!!

I just started going to the store before they open to get the steelbook. I haven't missed out on any except for the Logan steelbook, but I was on the road bringing husband home from Montana after he was injured on the job. That's the one time I wish I had pre-ordered.

When I was there today, there was only one Wonder Woman steelbook left. CEO3K and Starship Troopers steelbooks were all gone.

Pre-order the moment the steelbook goes live and you will never miss one.
