The latest from Staples from my online chat. As you can see they have reached their pre-order limit, but they will be available again for order by the 15th and include the $25 gift card. Office Depot is still accepting pre-orders at this time.:
6:32:10 PM Jim: Initial Question/Comment: I see the Nexus 7 currently shows out of stock and yesterday it was available for pre-order.
6:32:15 PM System: Welcome to Staples.com Live Chat. We will be with you shortly.
6:32:15 PM System: We ask for your assistance: please do NOT send credit card information through chat. Should credit information be required for a transaction, a Staples associate will contact you for the required information
6:32:15 PM System: Todd has joined this session!
6:32:15 PM System: Connected with Todd
6:33:10 PM Jim: If you pre-ordered the Nexus 7 does it ship from Google or Staples?
6:33:10 PM Todd: Hello Jim, I hope you’re doing well. I’d be happy to assist you with the Nexus 7.
6:34:00 PM Todd: I’m very sorry, but we have reached the limit of presale orders we can accept for the Nexus 7 tablet. We will be offering the item live on Staples.com by 7/15 at the latest, though.
6:34:40 PM Todd: It would ship from our warehouses
6:35:10 PM Todd However, you would still get the $25 gift card if you ordered with us.
6:36:01 PM Jim: If you order on the 15th do you still get the gift card?
6:37:30 PM Todd: I believe, from the information available to me, that you do still receive the gift card.
6:37:50 PM Jim: Thanks Todd
6:38:10 PM Todd: You're welcome. Is there anything else I can help you with today?
6:38:34 PM Jim: That is all. Thanks again
