I also preordered my CE online back in January. I went into the store on Tuesday to pick it up and they told me they had run out and were trying to get more. Apparently this was the case at all the other stores. There were also no CE's on the shelf. They offered me the standard version plus a gift card, but I'd really like the cool extras. It doesn't stop there, they proceeded to charge my card for the purchase. Not a pending charge, the charge actually went through. I still have no product on hand and I received one email with my preorder bonus code and another email telling me to be sure to pick up my online order before it gets cancelled. It's been very frustrating. I've never had such a negative experience with Best Buy. I've contacted several support people trying to get some sort of official statement, but everyone's been very tight-lipped.
