Yes, mine says that dispatching soon, also! I'm mega excited. As it still projects a delivery date of 4th December, I'm surprised the money is taken from our accounts already. I thought that supposed to happen on day or eve of dispatch.
They may be doing it early because it stops people cancelling. US site people are feeling a bit miffed (I can see why) over some voting scheme that Amazon US are currently doing and the cheaper price people may pay who have not pre-ordered. I think their $100 price might fall anyway because of the current exchange rate and end up around the $70 mark.
It could have been enough to prompt some people to cancel though.
Mine is getting ready for dispatch and to be honest I am still disappointed that there have been no pictures issued of the actual inner book, I hope it is nice.
I think they are just doing it this early for logistical reasons related to the guaranteed delivery date; Deathly Hallows must have been on about the same schedule because I got the dispatch notification email 6 days before it arrived. I doubt the price of the US Beedle will change as I imagine the prices were agreed with CHLG beforehand, and subsequent currency changes just mean more money (or less) goes to the charity. And if prices do change, it might be the UK one that goes up!
R MANOR, what delivery type did you go for? I think most of us may have selected Supersaver free delivery which means, they will despatch it a bit earlier to ensure we have it on 4th December. Whereas if you selected next day delivery, your status wont change until 2/3 dec. Its a bit silly really because it means no one needed to select anything else other than supersaver delivery because Amazon wants to commit to everyone receiving the book on the 4th regardless. Thats what I think.
But regardless of wether you have selected Supersaver free delivery, I would send an email to them telling them of your concern, just to make sure all is fine with your order. They will reply back. They always replied back to me.
I don't think delivery type matters, as I ordered the standard edition by standard delivery and the collectors edition by supersaver and they both went to dispatching soon on the same day. They were however both ordered the same day which might be relevant.
Note my information about "dispatching soon" comes from logging on and checking the order status, I have had no emails about them being prepared for dispatch, though I did get an email yesterday saying I had been entered into the prize draw.
