I was reading on myfico about Discover's foray into the 'black card' market. It seems to have started in 2012 and I'm not sure if it's still in existence.

It sounds like a standard More or It account with VIP status - and, of course, a black card. I don't think there was/is an annual fee but you could only get an invite with $40k in annual spending on an existing Discover account.
Warranties and sketchy merchants: Schwab Platinum
Price rewind: Costco

Taxes/Misc: SPG

Limited value, might close: Arrival

Might add: First Tech, proper business card

If I whip this out, people think it's the Amex Centurion because most people have absolutely no clue of the name Centurion and only know it by its long fabled nickname, the "Black Card".

It's offered to regular people with average credit who are willing to pay $500/yr to have a "Black Card" so their ignorant friends, acquaintances, etc. will think they are cool when they flash it all over their Instagram, Facebook and any other photo-whoring, fake friends network.

Of yen? :p

I always chuckle when I see these BlackCard invite threads :)
