A pre-order is the ability to secure a product prior to the official release date for availability in-store.*
You can select to either pre-order for delivery to your home and get it faster, or pre-order to pick up in-store. If you need to change your plan to qualify for a product upgrade for ship-to-home, this plan change will be effective when you make your pre-order even though your product will arrive when stock is available.
*Excludes accessories, Smart Home Monitoring and Pay as You Go Devices.
