lets post what we know,
what bestbuy has told us.
time and date of order.


please post any bb information that have or recieve.this way we can compare info and keep each other updated.theres alot fud surrounding these orders. lets see if we can make some sense out of it.

I ordered mine on 6/14 at 6.00 am, got in on the 299.99 deal.
my order says in process, release date of 7/6, i have recieved one email stating the date was pushed back from 7/1 to 7/6

Pretty much the same for me, except I ordered around 2am. I also received an email on 7/2 saying they expect to ship it by 7/7, but it still shows 7/6 in my account.

Since people usually never said what card they had ordered in the other threads, it's hard to know for sure, but looks like the people who got the $299 deal haven't had any changes other than getting the date pushed back to 7/6, which is within the expected release dates of, I believe at the time I ordered, 7/1-7/7.

Same info here. Ordered about the same time and got the $299 deal. I have received an email saying it would ship on 7/1, than another one changing the shipping date to 7/6. I called BB support and they confirmed that it would ship on 7/6.

Ive also called the bb cs and have been told
1)they confirm ship date as 7/6
2)there isnt a official release date because bfg hasnt confirmed shipment yet.

this is why we need to compare info.

I ordered an hour after you and have gotten two emails. One saying it was pushed back to the 6th and another saying it is expected to ship on the 7th''

My online order status says the release date is the 6th.

Does anyone know if BFG has an Official release date for the GT or is it official when ever they start shipping them?

As far as I'm aware, BFG has already released their cards publicly. I received my GT OC last friday after cancelling my BB order and ordering next day service from Outpost.com.

BB is claiming they will definitely ship the cards on 7/6

Ordering from outpost.com might be a mistake, I heard they are out of stock for a bit.

If they don't ship tomorrow yeh I'd consider switching too. Might as well wait though cuz eVGA is on vacation today.

I just called and they said the same thing. The system still shows a 7/6 shipping date for my order but he didn't think it would be met because there were none showing up in house and he had no date as to when they would arrive.

This sucks. :(

Looks like I'm going shopping elsewhere this week. Unless I hear something different tomorrow.
