    I have heard you need a credit card to pre-order through, I know its about a 85% dumb question cause I'm almost sure you can but even though I have a Bank of America Dedit card that's directly tied to my checking account but I can still use it as a Visa card (I always have the option of either or for purchases) since it has the Visa logo............

    Can I use this card to place my Pre-Order on Tuesday morning?

    thanks for the info guys! :)

    Yes, you can.

    By the way, the only thing that makes this a dumb question is the fact that it has been answered on this board a lot!! :)

    Sorry about that... I've seen 2 threads but with conflicting replies.... just figured after a couple days and haven't seen it asked again that I would throw it in there and just get a YES FOR SURE.

    Just wanting to make sure ALL of my bases sure covered for Monday morning.

    thanks so much guys

    I think that a lot of the problems are arising with AT&T and Apple (well, not really Apple) not telling us anything. Therefore, people are left wondering and come on here. Not your fault!

    AT&T stated in a press release that debit cards are not accepted. However, I think they were talking about actual debit cards that are required for ATM machines (no logo). Nowadays, those are not as widely used as they used to be. Everyone has a debit card, but it can also function as a credit card. Thus, when AT&T says debit cards, people are thinking the cards with the logo. :)

    Ya that's my concern...I'm sure we will all be fine as long as there is a visa/mastercard logo but I thought maybe someone who had pre-ordered say last year through apple maybe used the same kind of card that could confirm that "yes I did use this kind of card and it went through fine" you know.

    I'll cross my fingers and find out I guess.

    I used my Visa debit for the iPad preorder. It runs as a credit card so you're fine.
