The most prestigious American Express card is the Centurion® Card from American Express. You need an invitation to get it, but you can also request one online. While Amex doesn’t disclose the requirements, online reports say you have to spend at least $100,000 a year on an Amex card to merit consideration.
The Centurion® Card from American Express also has a $10,000 initiation fee and a $5000 annual fee. Cardholders get access to Centurion Lounges, hotel benefits, a personal concierge, and more. They also earn 1 point per $1 spent on all purchases.
Here’s another prestigious Amex credit card:
The Platinum Card® from American Express is also among the most prestigious American Express cards. It offers new cardholders 100,000 points for spending $6,000 in the first 6 months. Plus, it makes for a great travel companion as it offers 1 - 5 points per $1 spent on purchases. Among its many perks, it also provides concierge service and access to a host of worldwide airport lounges. And it charges a $695 annual fee, which makes it significantly more affordable than the Centurion® Card from American Express.
Keep in mind that the best American Express cards aren’t necessarily the most prestigious ones. Amex has a range of offerings with rewards for various spending habits. If exclusivity isn’t a top priority, it’s best to pick a card that best fits your needs.
