Anyone else's card get charged for their new Apple TV yet? Mine did today but no change to the shipping status yet. I'm thinking they're going out soon.

Mine was charged on September 1st

So did mine, but that charge went away after 2 or 3 days (just authorizing). This is a new charge for the same amount AND my gift card that I used for part of the price is now at $0 which did not happen on the 1st. I think this might mean it'll ship soon.

Your credit card was authorized on September 1st. It will be charged once it's ready to ship.

No charging here in the UK yet (although mine is using a debit card rather than credit!) I'm still getting excited though! :D

Edit: Also, the full amount was held for a couple of days on September 1st when I ordered it :) hopefully it'll be shipping soon!

I ordered mine through Amazon. Do they typically start shipping the same day as Apple or is there a bit of a lag?

Usually there's a lag, but not a huge one. (Meaning a week or less, not weeks)
It depends on how quickly Apple fills other distribution chains or favors their own in-house retail chain.

i believe you used debit card right? debit will instantly charged. if you use credit it will only charged once the product was shipped

Not true, at least not in my case. The authorized the card on September 1, meaning they issued a charge for $99 just to make sure the card information and balance was legitimate, but after it was stuck "processing" with my bank for a day or two, it went away. Fast forward to yesterday, my card was charged again and this one's actually going through and taking money from my account.

Same here.. However my postal service has changed from standard Post, to "Fast Ship (EMEA)" so hopefully should be going :)

It's been gone from Amazon since last week, except for some third party selling it for $198.

Interesting....I also have mine ordered from there and it still shows that my order is valid and will ship when available. But if I click on the item name again on my confirmation, I get the page described above, where Amazon isn't actually selling it or taking orders. Hopefully those of us who have it on pre-order will get units in a timely manner.....

My credit card shows a pending charge as of this morning. I placed my order on September 1st. The status of my order still shows shipping in September though. Maybe it will ship next week. :)

My Debit card is showing a 9/22 charge for Apple that's pending, but still no ship date, order placed 9/1...ESS

I have one on order too...hopefully they get them in stock around the same time. Ordered from them b/c of prime shipping, and 3% back on the Amazon credit card. Otherwise, I'd have ordered from Apple.

Just e-mailed Amazon.. the fact that it's now gone from their inventory is troubling. I wanted to save on tax, but now I might just order from Apple..

It is odd. Earlier this week it said "Sign up to be notified..." when it's available. But even that is gone now.

I still show the alert in my account, but who knows if I'll actually be emailed. 9 times out of 10 in the past, I never get emailed.

Just received the following email from Apple:

" To Our Valued Apple Customer:

Thank you for your recent order with Apple.

Our records indicate that when you placed your order you paid for
upgraded shipping. Due to a delay, we may have not been able to
meet our delivery commitment.

Apple has processed a refund for the shipping charge on your order.
Please contact your card-issuing bank for information on when the
credit will be posted to your account.


Sincerely,

Hope it's still here by next week. Either way, good to have the shipping charges back.

Something similar happened to the people who paid for iPhone rush shipping because apple used rush shipping for everyone in order to has the phones arrive the day that they were available in stores. I wonder if thats the case here or if there was simply a delay and everyone's will be later. Of course when you ordered an iPhone, it said "delivers by" rather than "ships".

Even if there is some kind of delay it wouldn't seem to make too much sense to refund rush shipping since you'd still get it sooner than anyone else unless they all get the rush shipping treatment, assuming they all ship the same day.

Which shipping did you choose?

I ordered on September 1st through the Apple Store iPhone app. I got an email confirmation from Apple that the order was received but haven't seen any activity on my credit card. Not then, not in the past few days. I got my iPhone 4.0 the day before the official release so I was kind of hoping I'd be the first on my block with this product.

Preordered a little after 7:45 on the 2nd and still no activity on my card or an update in the shipping information. Dratz... hoping I am not jinxed on this as I was with the iPhone 4 Preorder.

I had the new iPod nano and the Apple TV on the same order. Priority was selected. Ordered right after the keynote on the 1st.

My card was charged yesterday! I didn't pay for rushed shipping as I kinda was thinking / hoping that pre sale orders would all ship at once and get delivered launch day.

I'm beginning to think that there's been a delay. With Amazon not even having it on sale and with the email above; it's getting worrysome.

I ordered mine on the first day and the 99 has been pre-authorised ever since, but this morning its finally been taken properly, so hopefully that's a good sign.

Usually in my experience the item is shipped or at LEAST in "prepared for shipment" state within 24 hours of my card being re-authorized and finally charged.

I wish we knew what the hold up was. :( I am getting so antsy. I sold my old Apple TV a few weeks ago now and I am just dying without it. :p

I love how everyone is excited to see their money go lol.

Can't say I'm any better, I can't wait to have my new apple tv! I ordered 2 from amazon, but have heard nothing yet, at least you all are starting to have things moving along...

I ordered expedited shipping on top of my order also. Yesterday, my account showed a charge for the ATV, and one for the shipping amount. Today the account only shows a charge for just the amount of the ATV. Maybe, and I'm not getting my hopes up, but maybe they are doing expedited shipping for everyone...

Yep my card was charged also. Sounds like they'll be shipping them out over the weekend and we'll be getting them next week.
