The Centurion® Card from American Express is a very exclusive service from American Express, or AmEx, and is only available for those who hold other cards of the brand.

However, if you would like to obtain one, this will not be the only – or the most difficult – barrier that you will have to face.

The Centurion card is the most luxurious, high-end, and even mysterious credit card of the brand.

It is a symbol of world-class experiences. Let us begin by telling you that this is an invitation-only card service.

So, how do you get one? Well, this question is surrounded by secrets. And the reason for that is because, as the Centurion Card from American Express is an invitation-only credit card, its requirements are not available.

However, you do need to be an AmEx cardholder for at least a year.

You cannot apply for The Centurion® Card from American Express. However, you can request consideration from American Express.

To do so, you must fill in a form at The Centurion® website and wait for a review from the institution. Requesting a consideration does not grant you access to this card.

To cheer you up, we would like to mention that, yes, the Centurion has a variety of benefits, but it is not the only card that offers membership rewards or travel-related perks, for example.

Instead of waiting for an invitation from American Express, why not have a look at its other premium credit cards? Compare below:
