Re: Is it embarrasing using AMEX at a fast food?

I have found that the guys who work at Chipotle are amazed with my Centurion Card.

Also known as a “Centurion” card.

 

Gotta luv it!!

I think the average Centurion holder does not know what a Chipotle is, and has only seen a McDonalds on TV.

 

Although I did have a buddy who's Dad gave him one. he would always use it when we went out.

 

Used to freak the bartenders out. They thought it was fake. I thought he guy himself was a bit of a show off about it.


Was kinda funny when the card could not fit into a reader. he always carried a back up card.

I would use any type of AMEX card when ordering filet mignon at Mortons.  I am reserving my Blue card for certain places.  I treat my Blue as if its a Centurion.
