Wow. That's crazy. It wasn't even that big of a charge and they were already freaking out? I spent like over a 1000 dollars when I got my first Amex and nothing bad happened though I did tell them ahead of time that I would be making a big purchase and this week going to have to get my mom's car fixed and pay for a rental with my Amex and I've told them and asked them about that and they said it was fine.
Guess that can be a downside to having a card like that and I've been trying to avoid those situations as much as possible. As much as I've been using my Citi card much less now, I've ran big charges to it at times and thankfully nothing bad has happened there.
