$8000 for new hardwood floors on Chase Freedom ($140 cash back due to bonus category). Paid in full 2 weeks later.
Before that, it was a little over $7,000 in tuition on my AmEx every semester for the last 3 years. She graduated last Friday

Oh, I see. This is the 'brag about how much expendable income' you have thread.
Probably a vacation, if that counts as a single purchase. I don't own any Rolexes.

We put an $11,000+ furnace on a card for the rewards once. I think the dealer was a bit nervous. The furnace had already been installed. They called to make sure we were happy with it. We paid it off in full before it was due, but it was a nice way to kick that amount down the road for about 30 days.
Sorry to get off topic. Seeing a post by LynetteM caught me off guard!! You have been away for a long time. Is the nursing career keeping you extra busy?

Two years ago, when my son was 16, I purchased him a used car on my Discover card for $17,000. The dealer did not want me to pay by CC but relented when I was prepared to walk if they did not allow me to pay by CC. Interestingly, they did break up the charge into two charges of $8500 each. Not sure why.
Once posted to my account I paid Discover in full.
