S6 and S6 Edge Preorders Start Friday March 27 at Best Buy (Rumor)


Earlier this week Shane brought you details about the UK preorders for the S6 and S6 edge. Several forums around the internet are reporting that Best Buy is set to begin preorders for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge on Friday March 27.  While this is not yet confirmed by Best Buy or Samsung officially, I did pop in to my local Best Buy Samsung Experience Shop today and heard the same news.  The employee at my local Best Buy where I purchase all my Samsung phones mentioned to me preorders are set to begin on 3/27.  If you preorder early from Best Buy you should also expect to receive a free wireless charger from the deal.  The preorders will follow the same process as the Note 4 preorders at Best Buy, you purchase a $50 gift card to reserve your phone that you can use toward the price of the device when you pick it up.  If you decide to not pick up your phone you still don’t lose any money in the process as you still have the gift card.  Unfortunately the employee at my local Best Buy did not yet have pricing information (of course I prodded for any information I could get), but did mention that they should have the final pricing figures next Thursday before preorders official begin on Friday.

In addition to preorders going live, Best Buy should have working display units to play with starting next Friday.  This is exciting news for those of us interested in buying one of these phones!  It appears Best Buy will be ahead of all carriers when it comes to preorder dates, and once again will be the first place you can actually try out a working display unit.  Will you plan to preorder from Best Buy next week?  I certainly plan to be at my local store next Thursday and Friday to try and get more information and place my preorder.  Are you excited to finally get a in-person look at these phones?  Let us know your thoughts below.
