I bought 9 roundtrip tickets from Houston to Guatemala for a church trip (we were going to work in a dental clinic). We had to purchase ten seats to be able to send in a corporate check so I put it on my AMEX. It was around $8500. The best part was, I got the points and was reimbursed.

$9500 is about the highest single purchase I've made on any of my cards. I've done a purchase for about that amount on my CSP and my Platinum. I'm not sure how high I can really go on the Platinum. I have checked my spending ability of to 28K and was approved so I suppose technically it's my highest limit card.
Amex Platinum
Amex BCP 21K
Amex SPG 5K
Barclaycard Arrival Plus WEMC 5K
Chase Sapphire Preferred 23.5K
Credit Union 10K
Discover IT 7.75K
