Depends when they process the payment, if its just prior to dispatch the payment will fail and they'll contact you no doubt

lol I've done this with 3 items this year like that. I preordered games earlier this year and my card ran out. when they tried to process the payment they automatically cancelled my order and I had to order again! needless to say that I didnt get the game on the release date so I was well miffed about it.

Its such a hassle and disappointment. Make sure they either take payment while its still valid to use a card with an expiry date after the game release date to be on the same side so as to avoid any disappointment.

Just use the card, they will ear mark the payment and then just deal with registering the new card as and when they notice it hasnt gone through. It wont make you withdrawn or anything etc as the cards are going to be to the same account. It will be fine.

Just got an error when trying to order

Your card expires before your chosen delivery date

Ahhhh!! At least they are showing due diligence!!

you either have to phone your credit card company to activate the new card and cancel the old one or usually when you start using the old one it automatically cancels the old one

im putting iny my new details so hopefully it will work as they will start charging me when the cards active
becuase you dont have to put the start date on the card entry form

EDIT - I get this now

Im just going to order it on my mums card

grey areas, some sites allow you to update your card details easily. Amazon for instance, my card expired in august and I had like 5 outstanding orders all with my then expired card details.

They allow you to edit any of your orders quickly and easily online - with an option to update all your outstanding orders.

Now take HMV for instance, I've got Wanted on DVD on pre-order, due out in 2 days or so, HMV have emailed me to say I've got to call them to update my card details.

who is the retailer?

cool, I know how it feels, I always dread card expiration date when it's on the horizon.
