Rapid Satellite has them in stock!

Rapid Satellite has them in stock. Their website reads just received. I called and confirmed that they do have them and I was assured they do. I ordered mine and will be cancelling my BB preorder. I will save over $60 in tax.

The process seems slow. They do not offer overnight shipping. Their website states items will ship 24hrs after they receive the online agreement to terms (which is part of the ordering process).

There web site allows for tracking and order status so I will be able to monitor the order. I can already see my order states pending shipping.

Bottom line is they have them in stock and I am saving $60 in tax . They are an authorized D* dealer and offer a 7 day price match (Price match is just to state they are fair)

Oh yea... their hold time was long.

1-866-252-7811 Their hold time was long!. I would place the order on the web while your waiting to talk with them then just confirm they reserved a unit for you.

I asked but they could not say. They stated the system would not allow them to place the order if they ran out of stock. They said there in the Tennessee warehouse.

I was more interested in saving $60 in tax then getting it a few days earlier but nothing is stating I wont. BB does not have them in stock yet.

If you dont have a balance and will hold true to paying it off without intrest then wait for BB (assuming your on the pre-order list) If not then pull the triger on the in stock unit.

I think we are all being taken advantage of at $999. But thats for a different thread!

I just placed my order online, and I talked with a customer service rep who said it will ship within 24 hours.

Best part -- the warehouse is in Knoxville, TN, and I live about 90 minutes away! I wonder if I can just go pick it up...

I missed the Best Buy frenzy with an all-day meeting. Thanks, guys, for sharing this opportunity!

Yo update:
use the 'live chat' instead of holding for an hour:

here is my live chat transcript:

quote:

Please wait for a site operator to respond.
You are now chatting with 'rep'
rep: Hello & Welcome! Are you ready to place your DIRECTV RapidSatellite order?
me: Good afternoon I have placed an order and I have a question
rep: Ok
me: For the HR10-250 do you have them in stock and if yes, when will mine ship
me: my order # is Order ID: RS-69194
rep: No, they are currently on back order
me: when will they be in?
rep: Next week
me: ok thanks, I suppose I will be able to check status of order online from this point forward
rep: Correct

I'm in the same boat; both UE and VE. I think I will actually wait until I have a tracking # before canceling my others.

Unhappy Not in stock according to LiveChat rep

I just placed an order myself and then decided to click on the LIVE HELP link on their website. Spoke to a customer service rep named Beymar who says that these are NOT in stock but are expected sometime next week.

I now have four of these on order: VE, SS, BB, and RS. Maybe one of them will ship next week!
