Target.com just billed my credit card for my Wii U pre-order... so if you have a pre-order and were thinking you wouldn't be billed until the shipping date next month, check your accounts!

One month to go!!!

If $350.00 is going to F up your financial situation then you should not be buying a Wii U at this time.

Some people like me have the money in another account or somewhere else so they dont accidentally spend it than the number they put down on the pre order form, at least thats what I did. Still I thought it was against the law for companies to bill the consumer till they ship it.

It is not against the law. A company just needs to ship it within the advertised shipping period.

$350 is a lot to be taken from a person, unbeknownst to them.

Ah ok. I usually preorder stuff from Amazon and they dont bill untill the item is shipped but I think thats because of their price drop guarantee.

If you have committed to buying something for $350 then you better be ready for that $350.00 to be taken from your account. Worried about when it is going to be taken? Do not commit and preorder something then. Like Tasuki said earlier, set that money aside after you have agreed to a transaction with a merchant.

They can still get screwed up as I said if that money was somewhere else than the account they will pull from. I think thats what he is getting at. Still some people dont have the money at all and if that was the case well than I agree with you Ryno they shouldn't be preordering something if they dont have the cash on hand or at least some of it.

Not everybody thinks that far in advance. And while yes, that is dumb, they're not exactly at fault. I myself expect to be told WHEN x amount of money is being taken from my account, but still plan accordingly either way.
But alas, all I was saying is that some people will indeed find a surprise in their bank accounts today.

Lol not at fault?? How are they not at fault? When you preorder something you are saying yes I have the money. Its no different than if the item was there in a store. I dont go into Target now and say yes I will take that Wii but I will have the money on X day so give it to me now.

Do you want a personal phone call, email, or letter from the merchant telling you that they just billed you $350.00 for something that your preordered and committed to purchasing a month ago? What company provides this special service?

Also what if the release date was moved up to say October 31st and you were expecting November 18th to have all the money together? Companies have been known to do that.

...Yeah I don't expect them to bill me until the release date, or tell me otherwise before it happens. Because at the moment I don't have enough money, but will soon when the date draws near. I pre-ordered from Gamestop though, and have done in the past too...so, I'll be fine. >.>

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Eureka (Eureka Seven), and Tenma (School Rumble), stay away from them. xD
Update: Also love Yukari and Mizore from Rosario + Vampire.
Another Update: Also Yuuki...from School Rumble...
Yet Another Update: Also Amber and Xiao Pai from Rune Factory 4.

You should go to Target and ask for the WiiU that you just paid for.

Plus I'd be making some phone calls if my account got overdrawn.

Companies are protected by causing your account to be overdrawn. If you have read the fine print of a preorder contract (which I have) it says that if you don't have the money in your account when the company pulls it for said item than they are not responsible for overdraft fees by you not having sufficient funds in your account to cover the preorder.

That still doesn't mean that you cant call and throw a fit. There isn't nothing worse than an angry customer.

And who reads the fine print?

OH NOS! Best Buy has a pending charge on my Credit Card for the Wii U initiated on October 14th!

Actually I'm glad. I take it as a sign that Best Buy is actually allocating one for me and I am one step closer to getting a Wii U!
