Depends on the individual and not just AmEx. There are certainly AmEx members who have no problems with large purchases on their charge cards but that may not be relevant to you unless the various factors considered by AmEx are similar enough for you to such people but that doesn't sound likely given your experience with the check spending power button.

I have the money in the bank and can pay the card off as soon as it post, or even send the electronic payment early if they let me. What do you think?
