I wonder if placing my 2nd order less than 168 hours apart caused it to be stuck on hold.

And yes, i've searched for this - no i'm not reading 910 pages to find it. TY
Something happened with orders placed on Feb. 17. I ordered on 1/27 and 2/7 with no problems. The order on 2/17 did not get authorized to my card. After a week of being on a hold status, I called the Mint, and they said my card was refused authorization. I gave the Mint a different card for the 2/17 order, but as of today, still no authorization, but the order is still alive. Meanwhile, the CC issuer says they have no record of a request for authorization on 2/17 or any authorization being refused. Meanwhile, my wife ordered 1K on 2/21 and those were shipped today, 2/28.

You guys placing another order on 10th day even if the first is still on hold though? I figured that this would end up causing the others to cancel - having two sets of orders in the system.

Hmm, weird. Hopefully next one goes through...

I think that's only happened 1 or 2 times in all my orders. I must have ordered (I don't recall) because I've never waited beyond the 10 days (except for non mint related reasons - travel, etc)

And now you're asking in the AA credit card thread as well. Read the coin FAQ.

I apologize if I'm coming off as an idiot. I'm new to this and am just a little nervous that stuff won't go as planned.

Try a small order first to test it out and then do the full 1k.

The sticky is now up-to-date.

DONT order anything below $300 else your package will be sent via USPS and no signature required.

Long hold time

Ordered $1k on 2/23 (last order was 2/12) and the order is still on hold. Mint is really behind

Same experience with same date & amount; went to process then back to hold. Another order placed on 2/24 is now in process. Card not charged on either transaction.
