I don't know if there really is a 'max'. I think it's only a flag which they set and when you run a charge past that set figure, a phone call will be required to verify your purchase and BAM they will let it thru. Keep in mind this is based on your history with them. DON'T mess this up or next time, it will be a 'no' and you won't be able to complete your purchase.

I ended up with near $5k in one of my early months and paid almost none of it.

I was trying out Apple computers, which laptop I would like. I bought, returned, bought, returned but it happened to work out during the statement closing date.

So I was able to 'carry' a big charge (so now it shows on the credit report) without actually spending the money.

(none worked out btw)
