Essentially. This appears to be the situation with Amazon US. Folks who order later don't seem to be getting codes. As a result, I'd say the safest option is probably to go with Direct2Drive or Steam, which should give you a preorder beta/headstart code immediately. Direct2Drive in particular is supposed to be very good with this.

You can then take that and buy the lifetime subscription immediately.

Now...if you preorder from another retailer and DON'T get a code in the mail, you can still contact STO customer support directly. Cryptic's been pretty good about getting folks set up if the retailers let them down. Just have proof-of-purchase on-hand; e-mail them your electronic receipt or something.
