Not all that big since my BCP is basically used for groceries and my TE is only used at Costco.

Nicely done! Biggest purchase on AmEx was just under 10K on my Platinum. Didn't call or anything. Went right through. Weird feeling. I have made one larger purchase than that but it was on my CSP.

Mine was two transactions done within seconds of each other on my Business Gold Rewards card, $9k and $3k ($12k+ total) for some St. Louis Cardinals tickets.

On the other hand, my smallest purchase was with my True Earnings card that was $0.04 to top off a gift card at Macy's.
