    posting the “secret” phone number… naughty naughty…

    They’re gonna love you for that one 🙂

      The number isn’t secret, the card qualifications are. 🙂 Reminiscent of the old days 80s/90s prior to when the card even existed, people will just have to wonder what magic qualifies an individual.

    I meet all the requierments, atleast my credit history is perfect and have spent well over 250k

    I called my platinum phone number and asked about the card, when they saw how much ive spent they transfered me to centurion, they said i have not been extended an invite as of yet but they will put a note on my account saying im interested, and should be getting an invitation in the next round of invitations, witch they said was around every 2 months…

    ill keep you all posted on what happens

      Hey! I have been trying to get one for the past year.please help! what are the requirements?

    Good idea. I definitely think the Black card is ready to have some market share stolen away though. SMDI should definitely benefit from their strategic placement in the exclusive credit card market. As they learn and better cater the rewards their market, it will be easy to expand the membership of this card. I’m looking into buying some SMDI in the next few weeks.

    I think that it is over rated. My BoA black carbon card is 1. cheaper and gets me almost the same privileges.

    While we are discussing about topics relevant to AMEX Centurion Card Back To Invitation Only | The Black Card | Centurion Card | Visa Black Card | Luxury Credit Cards, You do not need to be a graphic designer to customize an invitation it can simply be done by adding a photograph or personalizing the written text. Standard store invitations do not allow for any customization hence the popularity of custom invitations

    I just got sent a centurion, if you want more info on everything let me know.

    • WAH says:

      I’d like the new requirments. Email me any details you have. I’ve spent $450k this year, I call centurion new member services every 2 months and they tell me an invitation has not been extended but to check back in another couple months. my email is

      • Joe says:

        I’m in the same boat as you–except now they have said “stop calling us about it–if you are going to be issued an inviation, we will send it to you.”

        This annoys the crap out of me because I have friends who have this card solely because they run work expenses through it. All my expenses are personal ones–I would think that would matter more to AMEX, but apparently not.

        Have you had any luck yet? you can e-mail me at jaym1199@ yahoo . com.

      I am in HKG which bank can be more accesible. I think that i can park the 250K spending in a cd in AMX at O interst for the card, can you tell me who to call or who can refer me.

    • steve says:

    Hey Guys, if you want to get invited do what I did, I had a few large purchases lined up on my platinum card over the next 24 months and used my card for all even though I had cash and paid off within 2 weeks must have ran through about 1.2 on the card In 12 months and about 15 months in got the invite and had Visa Infinite since it was as easy as that, I do know a few friends who reap rewards on like 5 cards they use for their business purchases which I dont think should be invited but nm
