Borderlands 3 Store Pick-up Pre-order on Thursday??

If I'm reading this right, I should be able to go into my BestBuy on Thursday night, a little before 9 (the day before release) and pick up my pre-order of Borderlands that I placed online for in-store pickup? I've never attempted this before so I'm not really sure how this all works. Once again, I pre-ordered the game online for in-store pickup, says it'll be ready on the 13th and I'm wondering if I'm able to go Thursday the 12th before the store closes around 9 to get my copy early. Thanks!

That's the way it's supposed to work but I would call the store where you pre-ordered and verify that they will sell you the game at 9pm before you waste time and gas. Been a LOT of problems with stores not participating in 9pm releases despite the site saying you can go to ANY store.

I don't see that Borderlands is doing an early release.

 

Right now the only games on the list is the new Pokeman game and Doom Eternal.

Weird, I show the following:

 

Pick up some of fall’s hottest games the night before they release.

Be one of the first to own some of this season's most highly anticipated games. Use the chart below to see which titles are available the night before release. Arrive at any Best Buy store just before 9 p.m. local time, while the doors are still open, to ensure you can buy your game.

Albany store put me on hold for 20 minutes to tell me no early release. Best Buy should either change their webpage description of early release. Last I checked any = all, not based on preference.

Re: Borderlands 3 Store Pick-up Pre-order on Thursday??

The South County, MO store told me they are doing a 9 PM release but they haven't received their shipment yet. This seems very odd since games are shipped to stores like a week in advance of release these days. I dropped my phone off there for repair this morning so I'm going back tonight to get it with low expectations that I will come home with Borderlands 3 as well.

ninbalia: You are absolutely right. What would be so hard about changing it to SELECT stores? There would be no reason for us to complain then when our local store isn't participating.

Re: Borderlands 3 Store Pick-up Pre-order on Thursday??

Hello everyone,

 

I know this came up with NBA 2K20, but I’ll reiterate it here.  ALL stores are participating in the early release of Borderlands 3.  All stores were sent a communication last week about this early release, and their participation in it.

 

If needed, please speak with upper management of your local store, as they should be able to pull up this communication.

 

While there’s always a chance a store may not get their shipment on time due to shipping delays, stores should have their pre-orders available tonight, and where available, additional stock for walk-in customers.

Borderlands 3 Early Pickup

I preordered borderlands 3 and saw on Best Buy site that I can pick up at 9 PM. It indicates that this is any store. Yet when I called the store they said they dont do this and I had to pick up tomorrow. How is this a good business practice? Advertising early pickup but the store wont honor it?

Didn’t help. Called my local store, Gaithersburg Maryland and the girl told me her manager said they have no such communication and will NOT be doing an early release today....
