American Express Black Card / Centurion Card Requirements
AS OF OCTOBER 2009 AMERICAN EXPRESS HAS MADE THE CENTURION CARD INVITATION ONLY, THIS INFORMATION IS NOW INVALID.
Many rumors and poor facts exist on Centurion Card Requirements, but it is really this:
- Have a good credit score and history (necessary for Platinum Card Also)
- Have been an existing American Express Platinum cardholder for a minimum of 1 year
- Spend $250,000 USD on American Express Personal Cards within a rolling 12-month period
- The Centurion Card as well as the Platinum Card are no longer “invitation only“
The Centurion Card has a credit limit based on personal finance profile (assets, spending habits, etc)
