Best Buy ripping off Amex black card?

Postby Mogul of Pineapples » Fri Oct 31, 2008 12:52 am

Has anyone else seen this?

Best Buy Premier Black? Give me a break! This is a total knockoff the American Express Centurion aka Black.

It's a damn electronics store credit card, not anything exclusive or impressive.
Disclosure: I am a moderator/paid staff of this site, which does have advertising relationships with some credit cards that are discussed and linked to. Regardless, anything I say is my honest opinion.

Current Cards:
American Express: Blue Cash, Simply Cash Bank of America: WorldPoints Platinum Plus Chase: Amazon, British Airways, Cash Plus Rewards, Freedom, Ink Cash Citi: Thank You Premier, Dividend Platinum Select Discover: More
Primary Everyday Card: American Express Blue Cash
Primary Travel Card: Chase Sapphire Preferred

The picture link you posted is broken? :confused:

I noticed a couple major credit cards now calling their cards black. Just like platinum became the new gold, it looks like black is becoming the new platinum! :eek:

If Amex was smart they would trademark using the word "black" for anything credit card related these others wouldn't be able to play off their name.
OBAMA
Stop talking crap about him!

I keep waiting for someone to come out with the Uranium 235 radioactive card. I mean, since all of the other precious stones and metals have already been taken, there isn't much left. lol

American Express created the Gold and Platinum standard and also created the first uber elite card. I'm sure they don't care if people copy them. After all... imatation is supposed to be the highest form of flattery, right? :)

As they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
