Centurion card holders

Postby JESSEPEAKDOTCOM » Tue Sep 28, 2010 3:30 am

I remember that post and I think the guy was asking you to pay for half the annual fee and half the initiation fee. That's a steep price to pay just to get a black card. Why not settle for the platinum? Ha.

i have a few wealthy friends and i swear they are the biggest idiots in the world- these guys and 1 gal have lost money with friends of thiers that are "well off" themselves- and im sure that if I paid for dinner with my BLACK CARD vs my HSBC Platinum card their eyes, ears and checkbooks would be wide open to some of the business opportunites I would like them to invest in- its a darn shame but these folks would rather lose money doing business with one of their "rich buddies" and they are taking all the risk then to give someone who isnt wealthy a chance to get into a money making opportunity. So if i have to fake the funk on a nasty dunk to get them to do some business - IM ALL FOR IT lol

Fake the funk on a nasty dunk, nice, I haven't seen that in the longest time. But yah, your friends are complete idiots, Bernie Madoff probably had the Amex card above Black, the black-hole, it is so good you cannot even see it. And he was fabulously wealthy and played the rounds at country clubs, so people just like your friends listened to him. Your friends should learn more about him, he was kinda all over the news last year.

everyone knows who madoff is- BUT guess what, that does not change this simple statement- THE rich party with, hang out with, eat lunch with, do business with... other folks who are rich, or whom they think are in the same position financially as them. When is the last time have noticed a business man pull up in his $200k plus automobile and his business partner pulls in behind to valet his 1982 primer colored vw rabbit thats spitting out clouds of dust and backfiring.... #illwait- exactly- BUT WE ARE GETTING OFF THE SUBJECT HERE- WHO HAS A CENTURION CARD...

I actually agree with the both of you, because those are all valid points coming from both sides. I suppose a lot of it depends on your line of work. In Los Angeles the idea of faking it til you make it seems to hold true because the over-obsession with money and material things is the same here. I know some industries where unfortunately it is hard to get respect unless you look like you have money. But Generallisimo hints at a good point- are you sure these are the people you do want to do business with, if they are like that?

Back to the topic - maybe MJ could loan you his since he's no longer around? Ha!

I don't think the Centurion is all its cracked up to be anymore. So many people qualify bec all they do is funnel their biz expenses through their Amex to reach the 250 thou spending requirement.
OBAMA
Stop talking crap about him!

i mean the only reason people have a BLACK CARD is because of the status and position that folks associate with it, kind of like a golf and country club... some of these clubs people just get into because the folks that are in the circle they want to be in are a member- but hey thats just my 2 pennies, for the business im in, having the card moves mountains-

I personally think they need to make it truely invite only with a higher cap limit. The centurion user base is getting too saturated.
