Default How do Pre-Orders work

OK peoples, I'm planning on pre-ordering my first thing. Tomarrow I am pre-ordering a James Brown CD that dosen't come out until March 27.


Now, what exactly will me pre-ordering the disc do, will I get it before the street date or what.

They will send it to you right when it comes out. Sometimes they send it a little early so you get it on the release date, but you wont get it before the release date. This just assures you that you will have a copy of the CD. Pre-orders are most popular for items that are expected to be sold out everywhere (i.e. when Harry potter comes out, people always pre order it)

Default Re: How do Pre-Orders work

well at toys r us where i work here's how it goes:

1. customer puts $5 down to pre-order the game or dvd that they want

2. a copy is guaranteed for that customer, so we put it aside

3. the customer comes back the day its released and pays the remaining balance. so if you were pre-ordering a $50 game, you'd only have to pay $45 since you already paid the $5 before

So basically it just guarantees you a copy of it. No earlier usually, but it just guarantees that it won't sell out. It's really a no-lose situation though since you end up paying the same amount. Its just a promise that you won't miss out on it.

i'm not sure about music. there's a certain protocol with music, release dates and soundscan and such. pre-ordering anything basicaly assures you will get one or if there is a certain type of added extra to the cd, such as a bonus disc or other promotions.
