    surprised

    Most retailers don't charge your card till the product is shipped or about to ship. I ordered the same configuration, so with 39 days to wait I'm a little surprised they are charging so soon. Is this normal for Apple?

    Apple charged the cards right on pre-order day but the charge dropped off, it was just a funds verification. This could be another funds verification...to make sure people that ordered still have the money available.

    Kind of dumb though to tie up people's funds like this though.

    My funds verification was only 1 dollar on my preorder. Personally I wish they would have just charged the thing and been done with it.

    I just checked. I ordered my 64gb wifi on March 13th. At the time I ordered the iPad, a case, a doc, and a power cord. On the 13th they did the $1 charge on my account.

    Today they posted a charge of $894 against my account (and it appears as pending like any other normal charge) -- and the $894 is exactly what the iPad and state tax would cost. What's interesting is that they didn't appear to charge me for any of the accessories yet.

    That is weird - especially since the case and the dock were scheduled to arrive before the iPad.

    Maybe they're going to be shipping early?

    There's another thread on this forum about this - and someone says they heard from an Apple person that this is a screw up. If it is - it'll be one big fat royal screw-up since they're pulling a lot of this out of debit cards and by tomorrow morning the transactions will be finalized. I used an older account and luckily moved money over to it this past weekend to cover the charges. I feel sorry for those folks who weren't planning on having to fork out the cash until late April. This could get nasty.

    I pre-ordered accessories also and haven't got a pending for them either.
