The Centurion Card, known informally as the black card, is a charge card issued by American Express. The card is available in certain markets, mainly the US, Canada, Mexico, Europe, Taiwan, Korea, areas of China (e.g. Hong Kong), Japan, Australia and the Middle East. The Centurion Card provides access to a range of benefits, depending on the country where the card is issued. In the 1980s, urban legends circulated about a black credit card of high spending power. While those legends were false at the time, American Express decided to capitalize on them by introducing the Centurion card in 1999.

 

 

To become a Centurion cardholder, one must meet American Express's strict eligibility criteria. Cardholders are required to pay an annual fee, and in some countries also an initiation fee

 

The card, available for personal and business use, offers services such as a dedicated concierge and travel agent, complimentary companion airline tickets on international flights on selected airlines with the purchase of a full fare ticket, personal shoppers at retailers such as Escada, Gucci, and Neiman Marcus, access to airport clubs, first class flight upgrades, membership in Sony's Cierge personal shopping program, and dozens of other elite club memberships. Hotel benefits include one free night when at least one paid night is booked during the same stay in every Mandarin Oriental hotel worldwide once a year (except for the New York City property),[2] and privileges at hotel chains like Ritz-Carlton, Leading Hotels of the World, and Amanresorts. All of the benefits mentioned above are for United States-issued cards. American Express Centurion cards issued in other countries may include different benefits. The card has recently added new amenities, including access into the Virgin Atlantic Flying Club Gold, as well as US Airways Platinum Preferred status as of June 1, 2007 in addition to Continental Gold* and Delta Platinum. As of August 14, 2007, American Airlines Admirals Club access was added to the list of amenities.[3] As of August 1, 2010, the card will provide unlimited access to all US Airways Clubs regardless which carrier the cardmember is traveling on (unlike Delta, Continental & American)[citation needed]. The card also features complimentary enrollment in Hertz Rent A Car #1 Club Gold and the Avis Rent A Car Presidents club.[4]

A new Centurion card crafted from anodized titanium was issued as an upgrade for all plastic U.S. Centurion cards in the first half of 2006, with the titanium version being rolled out to certain other countries as well. A common misconception is that the titanium card is thicker than plastic cards but this is false. The Titanium card is manufactured by First Data in Australia.

According to a letter sent to Centurion cardholders, Continental benefits will cease in October 2011. Effective March 1, 2011, US Centurion Cardholders were upgraded from Delta Gold Medallion to Delta Platinum Medallion Status.
 

Since the inception of the card, members have received a copy of Departures Magazine, which is also sent to all Platinum cardholders. However, in 2004, American Express Centurion members began to receive an exclusive "no name" magazine which was not available by any other means. Starting with the Spring 2007 edition, this magazine has been officially titled "Black Ink". Black Ink magazine is available for Centurion members with the 'personal edition' of the card, not the Centurion Business edition. European, Asian and Australian Centurion members receive quarterly the Centurion magazine, published by Journal International GmbH (Munich, Germany).

According to Journal International, the average age of a Centurion reader from Europe or the Middle East is 49 years. 94% of primary cardholders are male and they have an average of 3.3 properties. Their average household income is 653,000 and their average total net worth is 4.5million. They have an average disposable monthly income of 8,800. Centurion Magazine has been published since 2001 and has a circulation in Europe and the Middle East of 44,100, in Asia of 13,900 and in Australia of 6,000

Other card issuers are attempting to enter this lucrative high-end market.

In the United Kingdom, Coutts & Co offers a "Signia" MasterCard and NatWest has offered a "Black Card" since 2002.[6] In the United States, Barclaycard offers a "Black Card" Visa,[7] while Bank of America offers numerous black-colored reward cards. Wachovia also capitalized upon the trend by offering its Wealth Management clients black-colored Visa cards
