My Verizon Note 8 was shipped out last night from Coralville, IA and is being delivered to my home in Des moines, IA today. Unless they have put a warehouse in Coralville they are shipping from their stores. I do recall pre-ordering a Galaxy S4 within a store and having to wait longer than people who had them shipped. It was frustrating and learned my lesson.

You already have yours shipping? Did you do carrier or unlocked?
I got unlocked and it says mine is expected to ship on the 20th!! What the hell, lol. I am going to be pist if the freebies are gone.

I went in the store yesterday and asked what was going on, they said that they could not release the phone until the 15th so I cancelled my in store preorder and ordered online. I ordered at about 8pm last night and current status still shows preparing.
I figured even if shipping to me takes until the 15th then oh well since the in store pickup option would DEFINITELY take that long. At least this route I have the chance to get it sooner.

I have made this thread for other to chime in with updates as time goes along. IF you are recieving shipping updates, please tell us when you pre-ordered, the variant of the phone (e.g. color and carrie or unlocked version), and expected arrival.
Alright, a lot of us are pretty peeved at this time considering the lack of feedback or answers that we have recieved from Best Buy regarding our Note 8 pre-orders. While others (carriers) shipments have already went out or even delivered at this point (confirmed from andriod communities), we have recieved no word.
Its seems though that some who have odered from best buy have started to recieve shipment notices. However, those are individuals who ordered with a carrier, not the unlocked versions. (From what I have heard as well as the fact that I have ordered a unlocked version)
I currently have a shipment date of 9/20!! That is ridiculous considering the fact that the actual release is the 15th and those that pre-ordered after me (my pre-order was 8/27) are already getting theirs. For those that do not know, you need your phone in hand to start the claim for Samungs freebies, a wireless charger and 256 GB sd card or a 360 camera. Our delays put us WAY behind the curve for claiming these and possibly by the time we get the phone, no freebies will be left.
I expect BB to give us some answers, otherwise, I am going to have to take my business elsewhere from this point forward. Throughout the years they have just went downhill on being ahead of the competition and with their customer service. While I know it wont matter to BB as I spend less than $10k per year, I would rather shop with someone who cares about the customers. (e.g. newegg) lol

BB admins, stop moving my post in this thread because you don't want people to see it as a individual post. Stop trying to hide that we are recieving no answers from you. Thanks.
