American Express raising Centurion Requirement To 500k?

American Express Centurion CardSomeone recently updated Wikipedia with info that as of August 1, 2009, American Express will require a minimum of 250,000 500,000 USD within a 12 month period to qualify for the Centurion Card; I’ve called AMEX to verify this in the past, and they have said it is not the case, although maybe they just are not divulging a change? It definitely makes sense, 250k is not want it used to be.

Anyone have more detail on this? Guess we will find out this week on 8/1. Still $250,000, for now.

    It’s not true.

    Confirmed with Amex themselves, as well as the special department that handles it.

    They are having an IT team look into correcting the false wikipedia information…

      There are no set in stone requirements. I just received my new centurion card, and I spent $470k last year. I called the Centurion new member phone number once a month after I hit $250k in dollars spent for the year and all they would tell me was there is no invitation on file for you. So it is invitation only.

    Still is the requirement of a minimum of 250,000 500,000 USD within a 12 month period to qualify ? Thanks.

    • Hando says:

      No, it is strictly “by invitation only” now.

      You cannot request one simply with a 250,000 or even with a 500,000 12-month spend.

    Good article. I definitely think the Black card is ready to have some market share stolen away. Especially with Centurion making it more and more exclusive! SMDI should definitely benefit from their strategic placement in the exclusive credit card market, could take a group that doesnt get invited to the centurion. As they learn and better cater the rewards their market, it will be easy to expand the membership of this card. I’m looking into buying some SMDI in the next few weeks.

    Or Stratus rewards could appeal to a less pretentious and more practical target…

    The invitation only for the Centurion American Express is not completely true. When I had a platinum Amex card, and was charging in excess of a million dollars annually, I called the Centurion department and asked if they could give me an invitation. They said yes and took my application over the phone. A couple weeks later, I had the Centurion card. American Express however, is constantly asking for financials, under threat of lowering your estimated limits. They claim their cards have no limit. I have 8 different Amex cards, they all have limits. Perhaps not to the dollar, but all have limits.
