    That's not bad at all. Now I need to decide if I'm really going to get my ultra-discounted set from Suncoast, or if they'll oops it...

    David, did they cancel your order because the card is not valid anymore? If the order is still good, even if the card is not, I don't see why you couldn't try getting in touch with customer service and putting a different credit card on your account with them. It probably won't be charged until the item is in stock and ready to ship anyway.

    Derek,
    It's been documented in other threads (I seem to remember it being in the Software forum) that SunCoast/MediaPlay/whoever will honor existing orders, but they're not going to change them in any way. So David is indeed out of luck.

    The order is still standing. The card was still active at the time I placed the order.

    I didn't bother calling them fearing they would automatically cancel it if I had asked and explained the card was no good and they are unable to change the card. It is still possible that my credit account could be picked up by another bank. I will try once I am certain that my account will not be picked up.

    I also have a preorder with Bestbuy.com for LOTR. I did call them and ask to change the card and they were unable to. They said I would have to cancel and reorder. My Gift certificate I used on that order could not be replaced since it had already expired. So no $11 LOTR either.

    Edit. Not very long after I posted this message I recieved a rejection letter from Bestbuy.com on the LOTR order. They canceled the order. LOTR isn't supposed to ship until next month! Why did they try to charge my card right now and why couldn't they have done this last week? If someone associated with best buy read this post and canceled my order, you are truly lame.

    FYI, DVDSoon.com will charge your credit card upon receiving the order, not when it ships. For this type of savings, I'll accept this. But on a regular basis for my normal orders, though, I prefer to deal with etailers who bill when the order actually ships.

    Do Canadian mail order outfits have to obey that law or only US?
