The Black Card, the Most Elite Card in the World

It's not just a card, it's a black card!

Sky’s the limit when you have the American Express Centurion Card or better known as the Black Card! Surely it will make a scene wherever you go…because anyone who has it has the power, fame and luxury in everything making everyone else envy you.

Because of its elite status symbol, other black card holders notice that when you pull it out of your wallet, the cashier’s eyes would look amazed in wow! And because it’s Titanium, it’s scratch resistant.

When you have the black card, you will be treated like a king. You’ll have your own dedicated concierge who will assist you in prestige reservations, invitations to once-in-a-lifetime events, private shopping and exclusive access to fashion houses like Gucci, Escada, Tiffany and the like.

Dream to have the Black Card?

Wanna go to Vegas in a first class trip? Then check in an elite suite in Wynn? You will have the best assistance and first-class service and you don’t need anything, just the black card.

You dream to have the black card in your hand, so you must know how to have it. Hear what the American Express says about the famous black card…

The American Express Centurion® Card is renowned as the most prestigious, exclusive and respected Card in the world.

The Centurion Card is not for everyone. Card membership is reserved for existing American Express Card members who have shown the highest level of commitment. Access to the Centurion "Club" is for a chosen few and is by invitation only.

Distinct. Superior. The Ultimate. The Centurion Card.
–American Express

However, if you haven’t received an invitation to have a black card, you could still apply to have one if you meet their strict criteria. Criteria vary from country to country. In the US, there’s a one-time joining fee of $5,000 plus an annual fee of $2,500. You must have a minimum spending of $250,000 in a 12 month period using your Platinum AMEX card. Meaning, you must have extravagant spending habits. At the same time, you must maintain a neat and high credit ranking, has some huge assets and bankable properties.

You forgot one of the uber-secret things the Centurion does: my Black Card stops bullets. BEFORE they're fired. Truly, an elite card.
