AMEX invite?

So my cousin just this week got a huge envelope from AMEX invite to a credit card. He said he was a black card but did not remember the name and carried a $899 AF. I told him I think that was a invite to the centurion card AMEX's top card. When he noticed the AF he trashed it. But after I explained what I thought the invite was for. He was wondering if there is a special number to call the possible get the card without the actual invite in hand. Sorry for typo on phone sitting in ER waiting on wife.

I dont think it was a cent, the AF on that is $2,500. Also a personal cent card is very hard to get an invite on and you have to meet certain criteria.

Re: AMEX invite?

I think you can go onto Amex's website and "check for offers" and that information is tied to their mailed offers.  It might not be as well but one presumes at least some level of similar behavior between the different customer relationship paths.

 

Worth a shot anyway.

Re: AMEX invite?

Hit the shredder he trashed when he saw the AF. Sometimes it really pays to read everything LOL.

If his stats are correct he should be in line for a cent invite, I agree with the poster that said try the AMEX prequalifier. Tell him about that on their site.

Re: AMEX invite?

He can also call the csr number for the executive office or if he is a platinum card holder then he can call the customer service on his platinum as centurion and platinum share reps.

Good luck.
Yep I definately read everything. Both my husband and I have been receiving invites in the mail for business charge cards. Its nice to feel wanted but I'm not prepared to develope my business credit just yet

That's it? I doubt it's a centurion invite in that case. With a minimum annual spend of 250-500k, his gross doesn't even match that muchless the taxes he would need to pay on that 200k. His income simply isn't high enough, neither is his net worth.
