Why, Amazon? Why?
[weird online payment scenario] →
Once again, I order something from Amazon, and they immediately snatch the payment from my checking account. No problems there.
Five days later (!), the item ships (according to the email), yet suddenly, the payment has disappeared from my bank's account activity, and I am credited the payment back. If things go as before, my account will get hit again sometime toward the middle of next week.
It all balances out in the end, but man, this makes keeping a balanced account difficult.
