How many American Express cards can you have?

Postby Rory » Sat Aug 04, 2012 10:39 pm

I'm new to forum and yadda yadda yadda (been a ghost user per se so I'll skip the cliche introduction, though it is nice to finally open the channels of credit card communication with you all :) )

I was wondering if:

  • First, it is physically possible to obtain each and every amex card? (zync through centurion and all forms of blue and airline affiliates). How many cards can you have?
  • Secondly, how much would this cost per year?
I have to assume someone has considered this just for the pure sport of collecting them all and being able to overload your single Amex account with 20+ cards. It would also be a interesting way to manage ones spending across all the different cards to keep the accounts open and not raise any red flags with amex for abusing their system.

Give me your thoughts and perhaps any figures you can come up with on how much it would cost.

Thanks

Yes, you can acquire all of the cards.

It is more than you can afford. American Express has different versions of cards for other countries. Use a calculator and figure it out.

having a wallet with 10+ amex cards would just looks badass, and yes the centurion would have to be included and used beyond all else. it would just be cool to be able to throw down the entire assortment XP

It would be badass until you got to the register and they say the dreaded, " We don't accept American Express." DOH!
