About 7 years ago American Express announced the introduction of the Centurion Card. The Centurion Card (AKA ?The Black Card?) is offered by invitation only to selected American Express Platinum Card members. The Black Card carries an annual fee of about $2,500 but offers a number of great perks and benefits and an unlimited spending limit. Starting in the first quarter of this year American Express now makes the Centurion card out of pure Titanium!

According to one of the Black card members, the Centurion ?arrives at your house with a security guard. You get this big, black, velvet-lined box, with a special mini-computer and two black cards in it, one for business, one for pleasure.? If you put your card in the mini-computer, it tells you how much you?ve spent.

So? what exactly do you get for this highly exclusive and coveted card (besides a $2,500 bill)? Below I have outlined a few of the coolest features of the Black Card:
1) Each card member is assigned a personal travel counselor and their own concierge to help with anything from special occasion planning, dinner reservations, tickets to sold out shows, help with gift ideas, and help locating unusual items.
2) Complimentary upgrades on airlines, hotels? as well as access to many members only clubs, lounges, and fitness areas.
3) A complimentary international cell phone, delivered directly to Centurion Card members who are traveling, (pay only the cost of the calls).
4) Retail privileges at high end stores like Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue. Privileges include personal shopper services, invitations to exclusive events, free consultation for restyling of precious jewelry (Neiman Marcus) and private shopping hours (Saks.)

    “orrection…**According to one of the Black card members, the Centurion “arrives at your house with a security guard. You get this big, black, velvet-lined box, with a special mini-computer and two black cards in it, one for business, one for pleasure.” If you put your card in the mini-computer, it tells you how much you’ve spent**…..the above statement is incorrect. It was spread as a joke. You receive the card in the mail.

    I was sent my original Centurion card in 1999 and recently received my new Titanium card. It’s a “heavy” card – I mean literally heavy! and you can feel the weight of it. Sometimes throws waiters at restaurants as they haven’t really come across many cards like that. Anyway, I’ve had a lot of hotel upgrades, invites to VIP clubs, etc etc over the years and definately enjoy the benefits.. What’s next I wonder – it will be hard to better this!

    I have started a forum for members of the “black card” for networking, swapping ideas and stories regarding peoples experiences using their card amenities

    I decided to make the forum, since a few friends of mine and I started discussing the different experiences we all had dealing with the card and obtaining the benefits.

    if you have any questions, feel free to contact me at your convenience
