Re: Feb. 1 Orders

I ordered Dec 12.  What I have observed in watching the other order dates (as far as when they are shipped) is it does not matter so much what date you ordered your nook as much as where it ships from.  They do not seem to ship on first ordere first shipped basis which is okay with me as long as mine ships by Feb 1 or close to expected ship date.

Re: Feb. 1 Orders

And where are the "shipped from" locations?

Re: Feb. 1 Orders

The only thing I am worried about is snow. I am from southern Ohio, and this past week we were hit with a lot of snow. More is supposed to be coming in the next couple weeks too. I am starting to get antsy. I just want my nook to get here! :smileyvery-happy: Congrats to the nook for get the crunchie award for best new gadget in 2009!!

Re: Feb. 1 Orders

LadyBear10, I live in northeast Ohio, and I have the same worries.  Our weather has been awful since Christmas.  Some of our Christmas presents from relatives in Colorado haven't arrived, so I'm a little worried about the nook. 

 

The sun came out for the first time in about two weeks yesterday, but today it's just gray and gloomy again.  After living in California for years, I forgot how miserable the winters can be.

Re: Feb. 1 Orders

I never even considered the weather affecting my shipment. (I was just so anxious for the nook to ship). Yesterday, I got a notice saying my textbooks are being delayed because of the weather, and that's when it hit me. More snow may delay my nook.:smileysad: I am hoping that is not the case though. Right now I am waiting for my cover and screen protectors to arrive for my nook. Since my nook was a gift I have been receiving the accessories separate. Tomorrow marks exactly three weeks until our shipment date though! I need to learn patience the hard way.

Re: Feb. 1 Orders

Okay, so I don't want to get too excited here, but I just checked my credit card this morning and B&N has authorized my credit card for the nook.  Maybe they are just checking to see that I am still solvent, but I can't help but hope that this is it.  I checked my order status and no change.  Anyone else's card getting authorized?

Hey DontPanic,

 

I saw a hitchhiker's guide wallpaper on another thread.

I actually saved for my own nook :smileyvery-happy: Thought you might enjoy!

Re: Feb. 1 Orders

I placed my order on Dec 12th at which point my credit card was authorized.  That autorization fell off after a few days.  This is a new autorization from this morining and is the same amount as my entire purchase including my cover and waranty.  It may be nothing more than them reauthorizing my card since it has been a month.  I just thought it was strange to see the pending charge sitting there this morning.  Still I will keep my fingers crossed.:smileyhappy:

Re: Feb. 1 Orders

I too am in this group, parents ordered the nook for me as a christmas present around December 11th (may have been the 12th).

 

Anyone know how order date will affect shipping? (especially in this group).

 

Is it possible for someone who ordered on December 30th who is also in the Feb 1st shipping group to get it before me? If so that doesnt make much sense.

 

Thats the one question ive had this entire time!
