so i purchased the new 6s 64gb off Apple NZ for $1399 and all is good and well at the moment.

So to start off with, my credit card was charged $1399 Pending which is normal. Then a couple days later i had a confirmation email
saying the phone was shipped, and sure enough it turned up a couple days after that. Now surely Apple wouldnt send me the phone if they had
not received payment, which makes sense to me.

So ive had my phone for about 3 days and i checked my account yesterday and the $1399 which was pending has simply disappeared and now my
balance has been credited the $1399.

I've never seen this happen before on my statement. It appears i have the phone for 'free' at this point in time, but surely this will change.

Has anyone else seen this happen with apple related purchases?
