Bloomberg on what is decidedly the most credit card points earned in one transaction:

Liu, who used miles earned in July when he used his American Express Centurion card to pay $36 million for an ancient Chinese ceramic known as the Chicken Cup, didn’t even know he qualified for them at the time until asked by Bloomberg.

“Since you wrote the story, I started to pay attention to the points,” said Liu, who flashed the plastic again today at Christie’s for the thangka, requiring him to sign 31 separate AmEx receipts because the system can only swipe transactions up to a maximum amount.

“Oh, I didn’t even know I’d earn points on this $36 million purchase”. That sounds like me at Target (minus the $36 million part).
