I just called the Centurion department to see if I had an invite.. nothing yet! They noted my account for interest.

 

I meet their minimum spend amount of $250K per year between my personal and business platinum accounts so I'm eagerly awaiting an invite, which I'm going to take when the time comes!

Hey why not if you can afford it. Most of us if we could afford it, we would go for it. I know I would Smiley Happy

I travel at least 75 flights a year. I fly Delta majority of the time. Now, I'm not going to lie, I would love to open my wallet and see a Centurion card. It's great looking card.

I could definitely afford the fee. I'm just not sure if it's necessary.

The Centurion rep also told me not even that department knows what the criteria is for this card. He said the home office doesn't disclose this information!

 

Pretty wild!

I thought the word was that they raised it to $500K per year when they went back to invite only.  But that's only from reading speculation on the web.

Not saying this is definitive.  Just one of the things I recall seeing.  Lots of other speculation out there as well if you run a google search.

So many speculations. I also read that they removed the 'invitation only' back in 2006 Smiley Happy

 

Bronx, did they tell you what the min spending is to get the centurion?
