This is getting to be ridiculous. I have called Best Buy 3 times, I get transferred to 3 different people, and when I finally get to their "Downloads Department" they hang up on me when I tell them my Guild Wars 2 order is still "in process".
It has been over 48 hours now, I have NOT received my confirmation email, I have NOT received my beta access code, and I am NOT happy. The beta ends tonight, and my credit card has already been charged for (2) copies of the digital download of GW2.

Update: FINALLY got someone nice enough to talk me from Best Buy, and they looked up my order and said it showed up as already being processed and sent out, however, on my account, it still says "in process." She told me to double check my spam folder and it was not there. She said it should be sent out in the next couple of days -.- That's right folks, the beta ends in less than 8 hours and I got told my beta code won't be here until a FEW DAYS from now.

So I checked my bank account earlier today, and noticed that the $120+ I spent on 2 copies of the digital download of GW2 had been put back into my account. I have not received any emails saying that my order had been cancelled or can't be fulfilled for whatever reason, and when I checked, my order still said "in process."
I finally had enough of the runaround that Best Buy has been giving me, so I officially cancelled my order. Here is the email I got from them after I cancelled:
There's been a change to the status of your order.
We're sorry, but the item you ordered is no longer available and your order has been cancelled.

Nice to know that the game was unavailable all this time, right?
My message to everyone who has an order that's still stuck "in process" is to cancel the order and buy directly from guildwars2.com or GameStop. You will get the download and your beta code almost immediately.
Thank you Best Buy for making me miss the first beta weekend on a game that I've been waiting to play for 5 years.
