American Express USA - Gold Card Charter Member

[ Edited ]
Recently got a replacement Gold Card in the mail, I'm a Member Since 1997, and this card now reads Charter Member. I can't find any info on it online other than on the singapore Amex website, which is something different....


What exactly does this mean for me now other than my card Saying "Charter Member" on it, and why did it even happen now certain time since I've had the card I thought it was for people who have had it since the beginning?

Thanks!

Congrats on the designation.

Unfortunately, you should probably delete the image of your actual cc.

This is different, I saw that as well, but thats not the same thing, thats on the AMEX HK site, look at all the "Perks" all China related, maybe it's by invitation only in the US as well, but I can't find ANY info on it.

Any security concerns or anything you can think of?? I blocked out the account number, is there anything that is not hidden I should be worried about??
