I hope your bank is not petty enough to charge an overdraft fee for a hold. Good luck with the mess. I hope it turns out okay for you.

Well I stayed up and called them, with a bit of delay. (apparently everyone calls them at 6am on a friday... hmm) anyways I called them and all is well, it wasn't a charge but a notation for a future charge. Just to be safe, I cancelled with them LAWL ;D gawd I'm evil.  :angel12:
(btw, my bank IS that petty lol. ty for your concern)

even if your bank charges you a nsf fee, it is refunded to you when the charge drops off... they can not charge you a nsf fee for something that is not a real debit or that is done in error/ without you saying it's ok to be done.

Lol. I looked again and it did show a pending overdraft fee, so I saw this huge negative number and my head almost exploded (don't worry my heads fine) and I thought I accidently might have got charged by another offer. But It was the same thing. Now I just gotta stay till 6am again and call stamps.com again...

the charges completely disappeared after 3 business days on my account.  I found the stamps.com folks to be friendlier than my bank hehehe

I did the free signup but it still charged me $15.94. I hate to say it, but now i'm overdrawn lol. I had like $1-$2 in there  ;D (Which is the main reason I started this)
Should I just call them and cancel for a refund? (If they do refunds. God willing)

Be careful about talking about the word I highlighted in red.

I'm really sorry about the overdraft. I would call your bank and explain exactaly what happened; you signed up for a free trial and didn't know there was an authorization charge and that the charge which led to the overdraft was just that - an authorization. To clear some things up... Stamps.com is NOT a scam and has been a service that I have enjoyed for many years. I've canceled before (I didn't join through fusion cash for those who will start jumping up and down) and simply called them. Free trials like Stamps.com often carry small authorization charges; I just don't understand why everyone is freaking out and suggesting that a completely legitimate service is a scam. Everyone just needs to calm down!

If you go to the gas station and pay at the pump - even if you buy 1 gallon of gas they'll process an temporary authorization for $50.00. If go to a nice resteraunt, there will likely be an authorization charge as well. If you check into a hotel, they'll often automatically process an extra $50 authorization. Hotels, resteraunts and gas stations aren't scams - authorizations are just that - common, frequent, and a normal way of doing business.

That said, the bank problem with an overdraft is really unfortunate and I understand you didn't know this. I really hope your bank will work with you - try to explain exactally what happened and hopefully they will.

Best & Take Care

as you said the overdraft is pending... it will never approve. it drops off just like the charge does. right after the charge does as long as you do what you need to do in time.
