That's the main point to note...you haven't been charged.

Some CC transactions have this oddity...but it's not actually debited from the account...

I often have a $2.00 charge just sitting there waiting after purchasing from Stardock... as in it just sits there for a few days then disappears without being debited from my account.

Why this happens?  I don't know... I'm just glad it's not for hundreds of additional dollars that do disappear... from my account

The $2 is an authorization (which is a temporary hold, not a charge). We do this check to verify that the information that you entered is the same as what is on the card (fraud check). This amount is dropped and not charged. The time it takes for it to drop off your card depends on your bank's policies.

Thanks Zu, I wondered why this was more than once.  Not that I was concerned or anything, just curious as to why the mount appeared but never was taken.  Now I know.

Exactly. My bank calls it a pre authorization and for my bank, it drops off in 3 days. YMMV.

Good!!!  Now which came first, the chicken or the......?

And what existed before the 'Big Bang'?

And if it was nothing, as experts suggest, how could the the big bang occurred?

Moreover, and more importantly, why are there fewer black ones in a bag of jelly beans?
