Pretty much, my paper/card versions of the "events" arrived this week (I hear about them about 1 week from this list compared to when mine arrive)...

Well, I'm in terminal 5 at LHR and Centurion gave me fast track through security. Worth the annual fee, I don't think so. Does anyone know if the Mandarin Oriental benefits have gone? If so, what's left.

So my renewal date for Centurion is Mar 9 - still undecided as to whether to continue or not - so asked RM to give me list of 2014 benefits - it's damn extensive in description but maybe not so extensive in value - do you guys want me to post it? Again I emphasize it's l-o-n-g!

Not my kind of card but the bonus reward point feature is charming.
if Amex wants my spending back, they need to introduce that 50% bonus.

What's the points cap though $6000 on groceries hardly inspires confidence.

Don't forget that card is targeted for lower end of the market... and given lower prices in US - $500 a month for groceries is definitely sufficient for that market.

Just paying my bill online today & I found this in card benefits, I don't mind the AFR so I've gone for that. Only thing is when you register it says Business Centurion & my card is a personal cent so if they say no I'll be irritated.

I'm not a centurion holder (even if was eligible I don't think I'd want to be) but the FHR program can be advantageous and I think it is only available on the Centurion card here in Australia.
