Amex app shows the full amount pending. I called Amex and they say it went through.

I've been in the game for a year and have never seen this. Please let me know what's up.
I have had the same thing happen at a neighborhood Wal-mart. Both times it happened, it was because the cashier pressed debit after inserting card. It would let every other purchase go through besides the gift cards. I started going to the money center part now to purchase them now and haven't encountered any problems since.
