Re: Centurion??

So that I get it right, the Centurion card is the Amex black card, right like the one in Crashem's sig? The one that costs $7200/ ayear or is it a different product?

Yes. The Centurion is the original and "real" black card, not that cheap visa knockoff by Barclays.

Yes, it is also the one in Crashem's sig. 

 

It is $7500 to sign up after you are invited, $2500/ year fee (numbers might have changed). Not too sure about the AF for business centurions.

The business card looks a little different as well, mostly with a business word on the corner and a smaller "American Express" font.

Now it is a 7500 initiation fee and 2500 AF.  2500 AF per AU card too, but AU basically get same benefits which is unlike Platinum/Gold/Green AU cards.  Business Centurion is same.

 

Not sure what happens with older members if there AF is similar or do they get the AF of when they signed up.

Re: Centurion??

If i remember correctly the fee for my dads was 1k, and went up to 2.5k a few years back...  I guess they raised it for everyone.  I wasn't aware the initiation fee went up to 7.5k, thanks for the info.
