Ok, so I was desperate for a title. This was Connie’s idea, and I didn’t have anything better. The focus is on the colors, not on the Pocahontas.
Anyway, none of the photos have come in yet, but Apple’s pulling some serious shenanigans with their prices. Because I wanted to see a large shot, I ordered a 5×7 and an 8×10. Apparently, though, you pay for convenience (or possibly Apple shiny), because Apple’s pricing is comparatively outrageous—$0.99 for the 5×7, $3.99 for the 8×10, and $2.49 for shipping. Honestly, I probably won’t order from Apple again because it’s so outrageous.
Anyway, the original total was $7.93, because Tennessee sales tax sucks.
When I got the followup receipt (the one that says the order has shipped), the price increased to $8.16. I managed to track down that difference—the first receipt didn’t charge tax on the shipping. Now, while I don’t like my orders increasing in price without my approval, I can understand this sort of difference.
But it gets worse. The charge to my bank account is currently reading $8.72. And I have no idea why.
Hopefully there will be a happier resolution to this, but right now I’m kind of ticked off at Apple.
Also, when I first created my Apple account (which I use for iTunes, along with everything else), I used my Mom’s credit card number, and Apple uses as the name for the account the name on the credit card number. Of course, I changed it as soon as I got my debit card, but about half of the Apple website is still convinced that I’m my mom. It’s moderately annoying, and I can’t find anywhere to change it.
