Whichever name you use,The Black Card , The Centurion Card? It is still the most exclusive credit card in the world. I am finding it more often than I used to, it might be the circle I travel in, it might be people are generating money, or even American Express is only inviting much more card members than in years past (even though American Express won’t disclose how many members already have Black Cards).
I see this incredibly heavy VIP card in restaurants, nightclubs and hotels all around the world, that is all very normal, however the other day I saw a girl use her Black Card to get a $2.00 espresso at Starbuck’s. So I have the Platinum Card ( I understand weird to love a credit card, however, I do have strong emotional feelings regarding my little platinum bit of plastic), and I am wondering, what does it take to obtain a Centurion Card Invite? Should I be an Academy Award winning celebrity, perhaps a politician having a very wealthy wife or an enterprise mogul buying twenty-five 1000 dollar dinners every week? Gets a Black Card Invite harder than engaging in A Little World ?
There’s a lot of news about what it takes to obtain this card. I needed to hear it straight from the source, so I approached American Express directly. This is what they are ready to disclose:
1. The Centurion Card is inviting Only . There is no online software and no, your friend that actually works for American Express probably cannot get you in. They’ve criteria (that they will not totally discuss) but it surely includes high investing. I asked them when the number was $250,000 a year and this was not verified nor denied. However, it was stated that they consider the card member overall, not only investing habits. It might be like dating where they only want somebody with a great character and enjoys long uses a beach (other than the beach will likely have to be in Bali if you are hoping to get the Centurion Card).
2. There’s a one-time initiation fee of $5,000 incurred to all new Centurion accounts. It is kind of like signing up for a very private club with wonderful benefits including access to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, unique cultural and culinary events around the world. You also excellent amazing customized service, superior than any you can imagine and help in making your wildest dreams (and many ridiculous demands) comes true!
3. Every year the annual fee is $2,500. Once again, you are paying for the benefits persons. If you are vacationing around the world, require super specific service and all the other amazing benefits, it is a small price to pay! And if you’re able to get this card, you are so loaded that you will never even feel the heat of $2,500 once a year!
So there, it’s The exclusive Black/Centurion Card. Right now, go out invest enough, travel a lot and perhaps some day this desired kit will show up in your mailbox!
