This is common practice with card companies now. I bought a gallon of milk once then went back to buy a gift card I had forgotten to pick up. All my cards were locked immediately (Visa and MC), and when I called in they said they were suspicious because of the small transaction 1st (what criminals usually do to test the card). When the bigger transaction was charged within a few moments, they denied the transaction.
