They will let you place an order now since your card has not expired yet. However, you have to watch out those stores (most of them) that don't charge your CC until shipping. Stores like amazon would attempt to charge when they ship, and if your card expires by then, they will contact you by email. Other stores like bestbuy would simply cancel your order if CC denies charges for any reason.

So where did you preorder your SW Trilogy? If it's amazon, you should be ok. If it's bestbuy you're screwed.

I don't believe that Amazon etc. do ANYTHING with your credit card until they are ready to ship. So if your card expires in Sept and you're pre-ordering something shipping in October, you will receive your new card and new expiration date wih enough time to somply update your account information prior to shipping time.
