I have heard that certain major credit card companies will issue a "black" card to certain people. They don't even advertise or offer it to the public. But they will give it to a very very small amount of people, obviously those with incredible amounts of money. It is said that with one of these cards, you can call and order anything you want and have it delivered to you, etc etc.....all kinds of amazing and ridiculous features. Anyone else heard of these cards? I believe they're called "black" cards.

The only one that I know of is the Amex Centurion. You're invited to join if you're qualified.

How rich do u have to be to get one of those cards?

doctor rich?
movie star rich?
Mark Cuban rich?
or Paul Allen kinda rich?

Obviously you dont need to be Bill Gates rich to get this card, because if that was true, there would be 1 black card in the world.

Visa in the US has Visa Signature, and mostly in asia they have Visa Infinite. Not quite as many bennies as the Amex card but its teh same thing, they have ot invite you.

My dad has a Signature card. There is no fee, but i've never tried the concierge service

DUDE! Call up and ask for some fine chicks to be delivered at your place. What good is a signature card if you ain't having two chicks at the same time.

What does your dad do?

What if you found one?????!??!?!?!?

I know what I'd do with it....









return it of course! the person is rich! he'd give you wads of money for being such a good person! you'd "know" a rich dude!

then again, why did the rich person loose their card in the first place?

Ha, in your dreams. They would pat you on the back tell you you did the right thing and walk away. :(

They would probably give you like a $10 reward.

One of my friends has the Amex Centurian card. Its funny to watch him use it in places like Walmart because the clerks have no idea what the card is most of the time. On threatened to call the cops because she thought it was a fake card. Some of the things that card allows is hilarious. You can arrange to have a store "closed" so you can shop in private. A bunch of us are trying to convince him to do something stupid like get a Target or Payless closed. So who is this guy? Well, you hear less about his family nowadays since they got knocked off the Global 1000 because their company dropped below $1B in sales.

1. If you've got enough money to even qualify for this card (If you even ask about what it takes to qualify you do not qualify) then $5k/year is like a regular person paying 10 cents per year
2. The benefits you get from the card FAR outweigh the piddly ammount you pay. Think automatic upgrades on flights/hotels at no charge, personal assistants wherever you go at no charge, etc... You'd burn through the $5k annual fee in your first few weeks of using this card if you were to pay for it on your own.
