I called today to ask about Centurion membership and was told the following:
- The Centurion is SO exclusive, no representative knows anything about its qualifications or requirements
- The first year now costs $10,000 ($7500 initiation + $2500 annual fee)
- It will be notated on my account that I would like to be considered for the card the next time they do reviews.
I think we are going to have to alter our spending. I'm guessing by all the marketng propaganda Amex gives to Centurion invitees, Centurion wants people who spend a lot for discretionary things, like shopping, travel, and hotel stays, not just business expenses.
