I can't tell you what my Platinum Concierge, Trevor, can't do for me. If your lifestyle dictates a limo and helicopter rides, then the Platinum concierge can make that happen. If I want to be put on the VIP list at a club, that too can happen. If I want front row seats at Lagy Gaga, that too can be arranged.
How about you get the Centurion and make some outlandish requests, and then I will call Trevor and ask him if he can do the same things for me. I guess that would be the best test of the differences in services. I am sure there would be a lot of people who would be interested as well.
What you could do is upgrade to the Platinum for a year, try out the concierge and see what they can do for you and if you aren't satisfied with that level of service, go for Centurion. You can always downgrade back to a Gold card later. I can arrange a private yacht, leer jet, or a private villa whenever I want it. The concierge has connections that you normally wouldn't have. I don't know what your requests/needs are so it is difficult to say. For my needs the Platinum concierge has never failed my needs/requests. Could the concierge arrange for an iPad 3 on release date? I don't know, I have the first one so I don't need another one. But I am willing to bet they could probably make that happen. Who knows, they might be available in the Membership Rewards First catalog, cash in some points and get it for free. Unless you are in the entertainment industry or sports and you feel you NEED to flash a Centurion card, having a Platinum card will accomplish all the things you could possibly want. Flashing your Platinum card will raise enough eyebrows for people to know you are a serious player.
Let me know what you decide, I am curious.
