I heard the rumor it's not good to check it unless you really have to, so I never did. I know it is at least $5k per transaction (put my car down payment on it) and my internal limit is more than $8,500 (the most I ever charged in one month which was a different month than the car down payment). I never had to call ahead of time to have the down payment approved either.

I dont check... I just charged LOL. Ran $30k and no issues so why check? I'm sure if I hit the ceiling it's only a phone call to get it thru. No biggie.

The highest I have seen so far is 10k. I could see myself putting a car down payment or something like that on it.

Last time I checked it was at least 70k. Got scared to try more as had tried a bunch of different amounts. However that was 4-6 months ago so might be higher or lower at this point.
Amex Centurion, Amex Platinum, Amex BCP 8k->24k (5/23/12), Amex TE 15k, Cap One 1.5% 15k->20k (8/7/13), CSP 25k, Chase Palladium 100k, Citibank AA 35k (AU), Firestone 1.8k->2.2k->2.4k (8/20/12), JFCU Jloc 30k, PenFed Plat Rewards 30k, SF Fire 30k, US Bank Cash+ 25k
