That said, enjoy the thread for the entertainment value alone. It would be nice if some celeb would stop by and post how they got a "C" app and whether it came through their agent or, less likely IMO,  financial advisor. Most celebs have zero inclination to spend time at credit forums. Even if they have crappy credit (a lot of wealthy people have horrible credit) it's just something to delegate or better, have their agent/manager pay the bills and charge stuff.

 

At least in most cases.

Re: Pulled the trigger, I am now a proud Centurion :)

Guys, I just opened 3 new centurion accounts. And they waived all fees. And they gave me 15 free companion tickets to an airline of my choosing.

I just won the powerball for 190M (that is a capital M).  I apped for a Centurion, was approved, chose next day delivery and it was delivered by Mila Kunis :heart: 

 

Sorry but the video I was planning on making of the Centurion unboxing became a video of unboxing Mila Kunis... 

 

You can call me a liar, but what would you have done in the same situation?

 

Oh and in a related story, my Cap1 rebuilder card  got a massive CLI and is now 5 digits!!!!

 

 

**wakes up**

 

Weird dream...  So unrealistic!  LIke Cap1 would ever increase a CL that high on a rebuilder card!

Oh, well, I wasn't going to say anything at first because I didn't want to make you guys feel jealous, but they did give me the rights to own an airline.....or three.

The one person I know who got a personal centurion, not a business one, got it through their pr agent. Pr agent made call to someone in Amex. I do hear business centurion cards are going out. Business cent don't get those special offers often however.

Thanks. In many ways that's Amex's target demographics for the Centurion. It's a great branding strategy and makes sense to keep that channel active.

No, no!  The deal is that if you buy one airline, they will give your companion a free airline. :smileyhappy:
