Why was the final amount (capture) different than the initial authorization?

Certain purchases (hotels, restaurants, car rentals, gas stations, etc.) require pre-authorization and may temporarily hold money from your card balance that could be greater than the actual purchase amount. Once the purchase is processed, the money will be released and your balance will be adjusted.
