All he would need to do is make a request to the correct people.

I don't remember where I saw it, but there was an actual member who was willing to do it for other people. Crazy, I know. Why would you ever give someone unlimited access to your pristine credit? Jake, Stephen? Would you be willing to add an AU for a fee?


Not a chance on the coldest day in hell. What the guy probably did, was agreed to setup essentially a secured solution. Pre-pay $X as security and that is your LOC. Fail to make a payment and he'll just take it from the LOC and cancel your card. Business Centurion allow you to set limits for your AU.

4Runner wrote:Hey,

If you, as you said, put up to ~60K on your Platinum, you should call the customer service and ask them to pass the call to the Centurion new account department, they will add a note to you account saying something like you are interested on the card, and if their system finds that you fulfill all the requirements, regardless your "member since", they will send you the invitation.

Maybe a call to this number might also help: 877-877-0987 (Centurion Customer Service) and ask for the new accounts and do the same as above.


Not for US AmEx. They now require 5 years of prior customer history, along with a majority of spending being "luxury" spending. Which is why ICC is recommended, as they will accept a banker reference.

My suggestion is just to get an IEC (Euro Card) through your residence here in the US, and transfer it after 12 months to a US card.

I have zero interest in being an AU on someone else's card. Neither anyone with the right state of mind would do that, nor would I ever want to be an AU. In fact the risks are equal if not more for me. Just because someone holds a Centurion card, does't mean they are 'responsible' with their own spending -- or they are actually smart. If they ended up defaulting the payments, that would relatively have a negative impact on my credit report as well.

I do believe that most Centurion customers are faithful in making payments. Those who are not quickly lose the card and get sued personally.

That alone should be enough incentive for one NOT to be delinquent

Both I'd say. Even if they get sued, it still would have a negative impact on the AU's credit report too.

LOL being sued!! Who needs that drama.

Losing the card is well.... just that. Losing a card. No big deal, it won't kill you. Money comes and goes (hopefully comes) and that's life.
