    Wednesday morning I bought Lion after running the GM, but I have yet to see Apple charge my card. Anyone know how long Apple takes to charge you?

    this is just simple curiosity if I by some mistake I got Lion for free, I don't mind at all paying the $30

    I saw another topic with the same question. Seems there may just be a delay? Regardless, you're not alone.

    I read somewhere that Apple normally charges credit cards on Thursdays and Sundays (sooner if your balance amounts to $20). Maybe Apple is waiting (Phil Schiller did say they had a million downloads in 1 day, so maybe its taking a while to process all of those charges).

    Edit:

    For what its worth, Apple hasn't charged my card either.

    They don't process them instantly, most companies don't. This is why it is so important to keep a balanced checkbook!

    sometimes it takes a few days when I buy stuff with through itunes. so I just buy a gift card and put that on my account. that way I don't have little charges to keep track of from buying games.
