    So I *think* I just got my card charged for Rodimus and the Ark. The dollar amount is the same, but it shows no indication of being shipped (or even being paid on Amazon's site). Delivery date still shows Oct. Card shows the merchant was Amazon and that's the only thing I have on preorder that totals that amount.

    Do you have anything else in that same order, such as Tracks or another item? Amazon will do a temp charge for an entire order even if only one item is shipping. If that's the case, the charge will fall off your card in a day or so.

    Everything else has been shipped and arrived already (Galvatron, BW Scorp). Also, I've been using Amazon for at 10+ years now and I've never had them do a temp charge (target does it all the time, which annoys me). Not saying it's impossible, but they have yet to do that for any of my orders.

    I got charged for both Tracks and Rodimus but there's no notification or change to my order yet. I saw the charge in my bank statement today for the total of those two who are in the same order.

    EDIT: I checked with Amazon and now they are saying they accidentally charged me and the items arent ready yet and have refunded me. which is kind of lame. I have the items preordered at multiple places prepared to cancel the items when ready(or if I'm too late, sell to another at receipt price plus shipping)

    EDIT 2: Now the listing is saying the items are preparing shipping. I dont know if I'm getting Tracks and/or Rodimus or not but I'm charged for both....

    Whenever possible order preorder things from Amazon on different orders. If it shows shipping on the same day (Rodimus, Tracks, Ark) then they will charge for all even if it is only Tracks and then credit the rest back. That has been my experience.

    I've have never have it charge the entire order before for orders with multiple items that don't ship at the same time. I have alerts setup from my credit card, any time a charge goes thru, so it's not like I never noticed it got adjusted before I got a statement. I do have the Amazon Visa, so not sure if that handles it any different than others.

    How many more years till algorithms get outlawed cause clearly they are going to be a threat to our way of life. Pretty sure algorithms done more damage to society than this pandemic.

    Amazon might have the access to view the available credit on their own cards without sending a test ping, so that makes sense.

    How do you outlaw an algorithm? All an algorithm is is a series of instructions to solve a problem. In this case, the 'problem' is how to price stuff to make Amazon the most money. If you're going to regulate companies, you have to regulate their behavior, not how they implement the behavior.

    It's showing a 3rd party price b/c it's currently sold out from Amazon directly.

    Not that I am doubting you, but that's so weird. I've never seen that happen before. They just take whatever 3rd seller price is there when it's out of stock?
