Just a comment for people to think about. Q : How do I buy something with a larger value than my credit card will allow ? Apple's Answer : Tough, you can't. This was the basic gist of my conversation this AM with Apple's UK (Irish actually) support line. I asked whether I could pay by Bank Transfer (used to be able to do this) - nope, can't do that. I asked again and the guy said - I've answered your question and hung up. Arrogant or what ! So I have 2 options, go to a local store (or Apple store) and pay by a Debit card (OK, except I might have to wait a few weeks for the stuff to arrive (plus it's 20+ miles away) - and reducing Apple's margin in the process). OR, get on the phone to VISA and get my credit limit raised - which I did. Other folks' experiences ?
