Best and worst accidental purchases ya had.

As many know, you can set itunes to save your account info so you dont have to input every time you want to purchase. This is convenient but leads to occasional accidental purchases. So lets hear your best and worst mistakes =)

My best was accidentally buying PvZ when I wanted to re dl peggle cuz of new update.

Worst was when I wanted to try one of those billion mafia games but accidentally bought the $10 one instead of the free one -.-"

I wouldn't set my account to make accidental purchases more likely, no no no. I like it when they come back and say "Are you sure you want to buy it?"

During the weekend sale I bought Geo Wars based on feedback in the sale thread. Then when I looked at the reviews in iTunes they weren't so good, and the graphics aren't Retina, which I thought they would be. So I was a little disappointed, but it turns out I like the game a lot. So it worked out.

Oh I forgot. They will let you cancel one accidental purchase, which I've done.
Also, once I accidentally bought an iPad app for my iPod and they cancelled that one for me too.

I've never purchased a game accidentally. It's worth typing in the pw each time to avoid that.
