How Long Does Gift Card Authorization Take

I pre-ordered a game released at midnight EST today (6/21) and used my gift card for the first time. I noticed it says awaiting authorization at the bottom of my order and I would like to know how long this takes. At this rate, I would be better off going to the store in the morning rather than ordering online.
