    I initially had an authorization on my credit card that dropped off before being delivered. I know I should get charged anytime. Anyone else?

    The charge is inevitable but fun to imagine getting for free LOL

    I've heard of this before. Most likely due to the crush of orders. The one I read about only went for a day till it was discovered. Remember they placed a hold on the card in advance, that's one of the reasons why, besides making sure there's sufficient funds.

    Yeah, I know the first was a pre auth and should charge again anytime. Fun to imagine it was a gift from Tim Cook, ha!

    They have up to 30 days to collect payment from the time of authorization (order being placed). I have had this happen to me before (hotels, clubs/lounges, online retailers, etc), and I use to process online orders/capture credit card payments.

    So I shouldn't get to excited and spend the money on something else?

    That happened to me on my iPhone 6 Plus, Apple sometimes charges late.

    That happened to me. Pending charge gone and nothing showing.
    I called credit card company who saw the "new charge" dated 4/24. It now shows up.
    Kind of wished it was lost in the shuffle but as a Apple stockholder I didn't want them losing money if it was widespread.
