Here is my problem--I purchased through the Barclay Credit Card (advertised on the Apple Site) and intended to pay it off immediately. I called Barclay and they have approved the charges (I could have purchased 7 or 8 iPads with my credit limit)--now APPLE wants another form of payment and I do not want to be charged twice. Of course, they are now closed so I have to wait until tomorrow to call.
I am already upset that my son and his family are moving from Ohio to Arizona and I saw them for the last time before they leave tonight. Waiting for the iPad was giving me something to look forward to--now this. I don't suppose I will be receiving mine on Saturday. Thanks for letting me vent--I am just sooooo upset!!!
