I cancelled my order today that I had placed on the October 23rd. I had placed an original order October 15th that Best Buy decided to cancel right before shipping because of the whacky way they put a hold on your credit card when you place the order but don't actually finalize the charge until they get ready to ship which caused it to be flagged as fraud on my card. I instructed Best Buy to retry the original card after removing fraud block but for whatever reason they decided not to and cancelled the order. i placed another order on October 23rd and site showed it would ship that day. Even paid for Saturday delivery to receive email that it was delayed. I have contacted customer service 3 times now regarding when the order will ship and today I was told it will ship on November 24th which doesn't make since because Best Buy says my order will auto cancel if not shipped by November 23rd. Also it baffles me that as of right now, if you place an order for a 128gb white Verizon XL4, it says receive by Novemeber 14th! It seems like with every new device that comes out, they have never it togther on stock and shipping. You would think with a company as big as Best Buy they would have better organized logistics systems. Maybe hire some people from Amazon!!!
Also with Black Friday coming up, why would anyone keep their pending orders with best Buy for this device when you can get a lot better deals then and probably get it sooner!!!
I personally will not be purchasing anything else from Best Buy again!

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience, although I wish things had gone differently with your order for the Google Pixel 4 XL. I’m sure you’re anxious to get your hands on one! We work closely with our vendor partners, in effort to get orders to our customers on the agreed upon date. There are some factors beyond our control that might prevent that from happening, even with our best efforts. Notification of shipment would be communicated via email, and predicting an exact date that your order would ship is not something we can typically provide, so I can’t confirm the date you were given was correct.
I’m sorry to learn that you ultimately decided to cancel your order. As it stands, if you require additional support, our team is available to offer assistance. We are always happy to help however we can.
