So I order a system with the 40% off $2500 coupon on slickdeals last week, and after I get my confirmation, the "Available Balance" on my WaMu account goes down by the price of the purchase (as it does when the money is about to be taken out). Dell says they don't charge the card until the system is shipped, but it shipped two days ago and arrived today, and when I visited the bank today my Available Balance had returned to its pre-purchase level. What're the odds that Dell goofed here and I got a freebie? Too good to be true? Is there a statute of limitations for how long they can collect from me? Should I take off for Mexico?
