    I ordered a sport watch with black band with Applecare and got a ship date of May 13-27. I was promptly charged for the Applecare. Now, that just seems wrong to me. Apple is making a fortune on interest on the 'float' of Applecare for items for it hasn't even shipped. I think this happened before when I preordered a device, but for some reason, this time it has made me really mad. It would not be that hard to charge for it as the item ships.

    I called and cancelled the Applecare and will buy it when the watch actually arrives. I really resent Apple doing this.

    I buy Applecare because it improves resale and for everything my son uses, it is needed. Now, I will buy it when I have the item in hand.

    It's just a temporary authorization the same way you get charged the 1$ It falls off in a few days.

    Apple is excellent when it comes to the purchase experienced. I've rarely heard of an issue. Oh I'm sure they've had some, but a very small number given their many years in business.

    What difference does it make when the actual charge goes through your coverage is the same regardless??

    I had the same thing happen to me. Apple charged my $69 on April 10th but removed the charge yesterday.

    I don't really see why you are so annoyed by it, a early charge happens with most purchases.

    Why would you care if you get charged now or a week from now? Apple doesn't need the "float" from Applecare+ to get by. It's probably just how the ordering system works. Your coverage won't start until it ships so it's a non-issue.
