Re: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. steelbook 4K

Any reason that I am unable to pre-order this item in my area? It says that I can't ship to my home and the closets Best Buy Store that it will ship my pre-order to is over three hours away... I'm confused...

They may have exceeded their available online preorders and are forcing you to pick on up at a store that hasn't sold out yet. These are always limited runs.

I tried to order yesterday too and it wouldn't let me. Said it has to be picked up in store but no store anywhere had availability.

Re: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 4K Steelbook

Hi Compuaide,

 

Thank you for your interest in pre-ordering Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 from Best Buy, and thank you too for visiting our forum. I'll be happy to provide clarification to this question.

 

Steelbook offers on any movie are limited in nature and it is very common for pre-orders that include steelbooks to run out in advance of the movie's release date. However, in some cases there may still be a limited number in stores which would make it still appear as able to be pre-ordered even if it is not in a store near you. I am very sorry for any disappointment this may have caused. Please let us know if you have additional questions at this time.

 

Sincerely,

Mike|Senior Social Media Specialist | Best Buy® Corporate

I preordered a copy over a month ago and it got delayed with a notice that it will be cancelled if not fulfilled by Sept 20th so don't feel bad even people that preordered the day they announced it are seeing issues...

It's appalling that, long after stores have resolve Black Friday crushes through limited purchase numbers, voucher distributions, etc. the "trample one another to get a copy" persists for these items.

 

As I write this you can very easily buy these steelbooks -- on Ebay, for between $50 and $70 each instead of the retail $35.  {removed per forum guidelines}

 

Or you can get just a disk, no case, for $30 on Ebay (same link).

 

These guys have lots of 'em.  Actual customers, no.  This is nothing less than scalping. 

 

Best Buy paid some amount to Disney/Marvel to be able to be the sole distributor of this steelbook and of the only 3d version of the movie, and I'm sure they're looking for ROI in the form of not only sales (done, even for scalpers) but ancillary purchases like other movies or even a new BR player or TV (nope), good will (exactly the opposite), and recognition (searching for "Guardians of the Galaxy vol 2 blu-ray" turns up lots of stories about how you can't get a copy).

 

All this does is convince people to buy online and not bother with archaic brick and mortar stores.  I even managed to get a copy (one, not 12) this Sunday when a small batch were released; but when I picked it up, zero were on shelves and more appeared on Ebay. 

 

As these forums are read theoretically by BB corporate staff, and there's no corporate email contact, I'm dropping this here on the presumption that BB doesn't wish to pay fees for exclusive material to support scalping and bitter feelings.
