    Try using the Apple Store app instead of the website. Pre-select your favourites and be on your account page as the pre-orders start.

    Yes I will...
    Just hope my bank doesn't stop payment again, they did that last year and I had to re-order.
    I know it's a security thing but it's damned annoying.

    No new iPads, which some were hoping for.

    Try calling them ahead of time to let them know you’ll be spending quite a bit on pre-order day.

    I did that last year but they said they couldn't guarantee anything.

    Sometimes their anti-fraud procedures cause problems they were designed to prevent. I once had my debit card frozen because I used it in several cities across Canada during a trip to Montreal. I had to go to a local branch of my bank to straighten it out.

    Yes it's a real pain when they do that, over zealous.

    They don’t want to be seen as responding inadequately, leading to a number of false holds on accounts.

    I just rang them but it's the same reply, fingers crossed then.
