Yea, that's what I was guessing. That probably delayed the order for about a day though. ah well.. it'll take a little longer to ship, hopefully I get it before end of december.

My order stayed in processing for 3 days until they emailed me saying that they could not process my order and that I would need to call customer care to confirm my shipping address. Nothing happend when I called and the rep didn't know what was wrong with the order so she put me on hold and came back to tell me that someone would call me to confirm my shipping address. They called and I confirmed the address, I dunno what was wrong with my info, everything matched. I got an email 20 minutes after and finally got a confirmation that the order has been confirmed and is in process of shipping. I'm just wondering why they needed me to call them.
My brother bought a CD online from BB.....but he also got a call to confirm his address......I think it is random....

Confirmation Dec 25 12:06 a.m.

I walk into BB on Boxing day and the 2 things I bought online were both instock!

Pioneer 1014tx .... wh didn't more people hop on this deal?? It's a debadged ELITE unit!

Far Cry .... heard great things about this game!

Why doesn't BB in Canada offer instore pickup like the U.S. sotres?? it would be much easier.

I purchased the 1014tx online as well. Status "Approved - in process" Ordered Dec.25 1:20am (EST). I should have just went to the store to get it. I was about to get this from Etronics.com $469 CDN + taxes and shipping. All said and done, would have came out to about $20 more from Etronics. I figured it'll be easier/quicker ordering from BB. I'll give to a call tommorrow to see when BB will ship.

Yeah, my hat's off to FS and Purolator.

I ordered 2 pairs of Athena B2's and a C1 on Boxing day morning. 1 pair to my parents house and a pair and the C1 to my house.

Mom called me at 11:20 this morning to tell me they arrived, wife called me at 11:45 to tell me the rest arrived.... well except the second pair of B2's... they were OOS, but I already knew that.

I put my order in the afternoon of Dec. 26 and I got it all in 10:00AM of Dec. 28 by a Staples delivery guy. Much faster than Futureshop and Bestbuy.

Got all my FS and BB stuff today too. Pretty good considering Purolator was off Monday and Tuesday.

Today I received all 3 packages from both BB (Ordered on Dec. 25) and FS (Ordered on Dec. 25 and 26). I am so surprise I can get all of my orders just after 4 days. I remember last year I needed to wait after new year to receive my Boxing day order from FS.
