About that Costco M1 MacBook Air $100 off deal......

Anyone else place an order for one on Monday? It was supposed to be delivered on Tuesday, per the online receipt, but alas has yet to be shipped. A call to Costco.com's customer service this morning was quite entertaining: "The delivery date is just an estimate."

OK, so can you tell me when it may ship? "No idea."

Would it be OK if I walked into a Costco warehouse and just picked one up? "Sure."

Would I still get the $100 off deal? "Ah, no."

Why is there no realistic estimate on a shipping date for this commodity item? "Costco is not Apple."

Indeed!

I ran into the same thing when I ordered the Mac Mini last month that was on sale, as well as the monitor to display it.
Costco’s notifications are very misleading and pretty stupid.

Still, it's a pretty good deal.

If one needed either device immediately, there's the Apple Store.

Now, if the delivery time approach those of Adorama and B&H when their ads say 'In Stock Soon', that's a different story.

When I see that, I know shipping could be months away.

Sometimes it's not worth the wait.

There seems to be a very loose connection between Costco.com and Costco B&M stores.

Indeed. When they send me an email about an item on sale and I walk into the store and discover that no, it's not on sale at the Costco store near me, I am quite annoyed.

I'm annoyed in general when a store does this, but I'm even more annoyed when it's Costco, the big warehouse store where people typically buy a ton of stuff in the big warehouse store because that's what Costco is all about.
