Are the Business cards less "prestigious"?

Postby Dr.Mark » Tue Apr 08, 2014 2:30 pm

I found myself wondering whether the AmEx Business are seen, is some kind of way, as less prestigious compared to the personal cards. What do you guys think?

Well funny thing. My boss keeps getting business card offers from amex. And the son (he competes with me on cards -_- ...*he gets daddy money*) he carries one of those "your name goes here" cards on his wallet only showing "American Express Business Platinum" but hiding the bottom part..

I bet, I have adapted to his egoism stuff so I just tell him what he wants to hear- if you know what I mean..

He`s going for the Ritz Carlton card just to show it off to me (I used to want it) -He applied for it but chase was not able to very his information so he was denied but called in and was asked to mail in his information.. I have the Marriott Premier Signature card.. I mean I would get that Ritz card but that fee I don't like ($395) that's why I settled for Marriott ($85) I have stuff to pay --_--.. I don't get daddy or mommy money like he does :(

Yeah, I totally know what you mean. I have to work my way in the world too. That's the reason why when I upgraded my AmEx Green I didn't go for the Platinum but rather for the PRG. 450£/year wasn't just worth it for me. Not yet, at least.

No, 450£ is for the Platinum. I pay 125£ for my PRG which is like yours AF more or less. ;)

Yeah, but I don't think they would give a single card without some history...

Personally I view them as less prestigious because its not a personal card. Your business could be booming but youre barely scraping by...and you could have a business centurion.

I was offered the business platinum. I don't own my own business, so my GF said that AMEX must think im a Brabus dealer from all the parts I buy haha.
