My credit card was charged twice for the same item purchased 11/17/2012. I was told by Best Buy customer care that "one was for the purchase authorization hold" and the "other was for the sale itself".

The hold would not be released until 12/25/2012! My cedit card is going to charge interest on a Hold Transaction.. This is surely a scam. Imagine a million customers in this situation.

How much interest is going to charged? Who gets the money? Is there a kickback scheme going on? They'll have my money for about 37 days.

they said someone will call back. Yeah!

Holding is common. But also, they DO make money on your money durring the hold!


A"hold" is a common pratice and you should not be charged interest on it. Call the bank of your credit card if unsure.
