Hundreds, er thousands, of high school and college boys, who probably have not been invited to hold The Centurion Card or Black Card, are certain to enjoy this commercial — including the cool black helicopter, model/actress Donna Feldman, and a cool motorcycle. Oh … and a cool James Bond-like black speed boat.
The Black Card, which is formally known as the Centurion Card, was introduced in 1999. American Express’s strict eligibility criteria are unknown, but cardholders are required to pay an annual fee, which was $2,500 in the United States in 2009, and and a one-time initiation fee, which was $5,000 for the first year. The BLACK CARD website currently lists a $495 annual fee.
According to Black Card membership, the card made of carbon is limited to ensure the highest caliber of personal service is provided to every Cardmember. That’s about 1% of United States residents. A 24-hour Concierge Service is ready to assist cardholders with personal, business and travel needs.
Our Exclusive Rewards Program provides 1% cash back on all purchases or superior mileage redemption on any airline with no blackouts or restrictions. Cardholders also receive VIP access to over 600 airport lounges worldwide.
Black Card members enjoy complete peace of mind. The Black Card is accepted globally in over 170 countries and provides Zero Liability protection against unauthorized purchases.
