My main problem was that I couldn't because I wasn't in the US :/. Basically Athourization Holds can be released properly in two wasys. Either you make the merhcant drop it or you just wait it out until your bank automatically drops it (could take all the way to a month). I'm not sure which one happened but these guys actaully did contact credit card servcies for me to make them release the hold so they did all they can.
In any case, contacting credit card services is your best bet if you want it released quickly , but be ready to be put on hold a couple of times :/.
Best of luck
