First Charge?
...a cup of dark sumatra coffee, from the local coffee shop.

Pretty uneventful, haha.

Nice !!   I don't remember exactly what I bought first with my Zync....but it's very possible that it might have been a bottle of something at the package store.... :smileytongue:

 

I honestly don't think AMEX cares what you purchase most of the time.........

Re: First Charge?

My first charge on my BCE was my fall tuition for my accounting courses.

A nice whopping $1,400 a day after activating it :smileyhappy:

Eh, it's a community college.

It's a "special case", but yeah, three classes for summer/fall and it comes out to that. lol

Re: First Charge?

The first charge on my CSP card was a $3k+ car part, one day after activation. I wonder if that made them nervous. :smileyhappy:

Re: First Charge?

I know they do not care about your purchases.


I certainly didn't intend to make a new thread, just to talk about it - haha, I thought I replied to my other zync thread already in progress.  oh well

 

No, I was really just excited to have my own Amex card again - a prime card to boot, and was day dreaming about how I might first whip it out, and swipe it.

 

Just some coffee and the guy took it and handed it back :manindifferent:

So long you are PIF'ing, I guess (as stated above) it's no big deal. We'll just enjoy our cards responsibly.
