Are you sure you didn't just miss the charge for the Wii U since it was on a previous billing period? Or perhaps it was charged to a different account than the games?

YES I am 100% sure it wasn't a different account called my bank. They said there was a pending charge but it dropped off last week. Even my bank is confused

BofA does this a lot to me. I'd have a few transactions, all of a sudden I have more than I actually have. I keep a separate book keeping for my funds; so when the two amounts aren't the same, something is missing on their end. I'm paranoid and I think they do it to try to get me to overdraft.

I've had that happen with merchants before where they authorize the charge, then it randomly disappears for a few days, but then comes back. House of Blues in Orlando used to do it all the time, sometimes charges would go away for a week and then all of a sudden hit the account.

Some banks will hold back your charges and apply your account balance to the largest charges coming in first, or the ones of their preference. This is usually so that if you have a low balance, they can get you for an extra fee on each of the smaller amounts instead of the one larger amount.

But if you are able to get one without being charged, consider it a gift. Walmart screws over all of their employees. In many cases they keep people on at 30 hours so they don't have to pay their pitiful benefit package. I think that people should be educating themselves and finding better employment. Also the government should be forcing them to provide proper benefits.

Don't get too excited just yet. It's stored somewhere in WM's computer system. The charge will eventually show up. BF prob overwhelmed its system and would take time to show up, eventually.

Ever heard of the expression, "2 wrongs don't make a right"?

There was already a solution to that problem. It's called "going back to school and get a better education." The majority of the time, at most WMs I went to, the employees have the attitude "Blah Blah I don't care. I'm NOT here to help the customers (whom will be paying my salary). I'm here to hang around, talk, and wait til my shift ends. Whatever." Why bother come to work with that kinda attitude?

The govt's role is to protect the country's security, not to protect uneducated low class worker's welfare. Look at what happened at Hostess.

Had this happen to me couple of days ago with Staples. 2 pending charges dropped off and I had more money in my checking account. I was so happy but then they came back again and took everything away Frown

I had $20 remaning when the charges were pending, thank god I didn't charge anything else after the money temporarily came bacl.

what I hate is getting the double or triple charges to have them credited back a week or two later. I get that with Amazon all the time. Hell, I have an extra $500 on hold from my account from Amazon charges this weekend. Eventually it all gets straightened out, but it's an annoyance to say the least. As for the OP, you'll eventually be charged correctly. It always happens and I've had the same thing happen with me more than a few times.
