    Went to check my credit card statement online, and it shows two charges from Apple. One was for the iPhone 4 (which matches the final price from when I was at the checkout), and the second one is a charge for a penny. Anyone else get this? What is it?

    i got 2 penney charges, too (ordered 2 phones) however the other two charges on my card were for a penney less than what is in my order confirmation.... i assume it it a secondary check to see of the card is good? same thing happened last year when i ordered our 3GSs. last year resulted in my credit card company calling to check on the charges....

    They are just checking out your account. Happens all the time, only people now check their accounts everyday and are noticing it for the first time.

    They do that to check the validity of the card. You'd think there'd be some sort of other check they could do but...
