    I didnt what "Purchase with 1 Click" meant

    So instead of add to cart. I clicked that one.

    and it just charged my card and

    I contacted amazon and I cant get my order canceled. I will have to sent the item back first.

    Its not that bad of a deal. I wanted the movie...but not like that

    Very funny. Maybe next time you see a button that says purchase with one click, maybe you'll realize you could be paying for it after only one click...

    Are you looking for sympathy? You won't get it from me. Much more fun to laugh. And I don't feel like protesting Amazon either.

    I don't shop at Amazon much but I thought 1 click purchase had to be activated.

    The same just happened to me. I had my trackpad set such that keeping my finger still on the trackpad for a few seconds equaled a click, and while hovering over the "purchase" button trying to make up my mind whether or not I should buy (and finally thinking I shouldn't) the MacBook Pro took it as a click and purchased a 1TB Time Capsule for me.

    However, all you need to do it to go to your account and click "cancel my order" and it will let you cancel an order for a while after you purchased with just one click and without any hassle whatsoever, so a minite later I had it cancelled again.

    Exactly, Amazon don't charge your card until the order has shipped and that will usually take a little while.
