Question about spending with my discover card

Hey guys, I have question for all of you discover customers!


I was recently approved for a discover motiva, and I've been using it quite frequently, but my question is, does discover consider it okay for me to make large purchases as long as I pay it off right away? I've heard that Amex likes it when customers charge up lots then paying off lots but is it the same case for discover? I'm just curious since I've only had the card for about a month and I don't want to spook them or hurt my chances at a CLI in the future.

As long as you don't go over the credit limit you'll be fine.
