We’ve ordered the Rift as well, but had a lot of trouble in the process. First the website showed us a white screen. After that we’ve received the message there was an issue and when we finally entered all the info the website hung. After retrying we received a message that only one Rift is allowed per costumer.
In a Tweet Oculus advise is to send an e-mail to support. If you experience any trouble the chances are that you won’t receive your rift in time since the expected ship date is set to May 2016.
