Re: biggest single purchase?

Rent for around $2400. Apartment complex charges 10 bucks to use a CC, but 1.5% was more than 10$ so i just use my card to pay.

Re: biggest single purchase?

I'm pretty sure it was my washer and dryer. That was like $1500 including delivery. That went on my Washington Mutual card.


If it wasn't my washer and dryer, it was my bedroom furniture. Bed, nice mattress and box spring, dresser, nightstand. That was also around $1500. I can't remember what card that went on, but it was probably my WaMu as well. 


Edit: Wait, wait, wait, those are wrong. Just a few months ago I paid for lawyer for a family member on my Citi ThankYou Preferred. That was $2500.


And do BT's count? I used a BT check from my FNBO Visa and paid off my car loan. That was $9000.
