It's a credit authorization. This is typical when you buy stuff.

I just called amazon because I had a similar charge. It turns out that I had pre-ordered a book a few months ago and totally forgot.

I had ordered something from buy.com via amazon and I saw $1 charge with CHKCARDAMAZON.COM AMZN.COILLWAUS on my account. My order was not $1 for sure and I had ordered it from a different credit card. I do not see any explanation for that.

Mak that was a fail.

For all of you. CHKCARDAMAZON.COM means they are validating that your card is real and you arent trying to steal anything, they take 1usd, and give it back, its a normal feature while buying online, dont get scared.

Anyway if you guys dont trust this, use a prepaid visa card, put the amount you are going to buy in that card, and make it your main Amazon card, that way if there were the slightest possibility to get steal in amazon, wich is pretty small, they would only take the leftovers in that card, and your credit cards will be safe.

First off why is this in the PS3 forum? Second, why are you posting on the forum hoping that random viewers can look in Amazon's database to tell you why your credit card got charged? Call Amazon. Stop wasting time and space on the internet with uselessness.

Hi, I also have an extra CC payment on my statement, whereas I only ordered from Amazon the once, and received the books ordered. Is there anything I can do about this?

I bought a used cd yesterday for $6.83, I went to track my orders/order details page to look at a few things on this album and now it's not showing up in my orders at all. I did not intentionally cancel it and I cannot find the seller on amazon anymore. I still have a pending charge of $6.83 in my checkings account. I do NOT want to get charged for something I am not receiving. What do I do? Should I contact my bank and ask them for help?

Just checked my bank account TODAY and there was a charge TODAY for $63 for amzn.coillwaus... a current charge, not a posted one. All I did today was buy a sweatshirt at a local University... what's up with that, and when will that $63 be returned?

Ok have answer for all of you this is from a agent from amazon via live chat ----When you place an order with us, we authorize your credit card for $1.00 to confirm your card has a valid number and hasn't been reported lost or stolen. If you have a seller account on our website, we also periodically authorize your card to ensure your account information is up-to-date.
We don't actually proceed with the $1.00 charge--we'll charge you when the order ships. The authorization should drop off of your credit card within 7-10 business days, depending on how long your bank holds authorizations.
