How to get the Amex Black Card Full benefits and in-depth credit card unboxing of the American Express Centurion Credit Card! welcome to the video that I've been
waiting for for years this is the Black Card century now as you have seen it
kind of fell apart because I actually have packed it a couple of days ago but
that being said I'm still gonna try my best to give you the feeling of how I
felt when I received the card I will go as in the last video as to why I think
it's worth it or not worth it at the end I'll give you the pros and the cons and
the reason which is actually quite objectively why I decided on this card
and why maybe it could be a waste of money or maybe not so we'll see in this
video but without further ado I'm gonna guide you through the entire experience
I have my iPad with me so we'll go as well through what the website say
because this card is covered in secrecy and even when asking my relationship
manager about it he didn't just want to tell me a lot of things so I'll just
tell you what I asked him I took him out for a drink and just asked a lot of
questions as to what they do how their name looks like and how they ended up in
that job so I was generally interested very surprised I got that card at such a
young age but let's go through it so this box
that's how they bring it to so there are two ways there are actually two ways
that they might bring it so obviously this is for posting so they have a
courier that that just brings it but I'm based in the Netherlands so you have a
choice between a career or somebody bringing it to you your relationship
manager and my relationship manager wasn't at the office that day so one of
the sales represented brought it and we had a drink but so
that's kind of the white postal package they bring it in and then inside you
have this beauty just like a normal part board I guess what I like is the matte
black finish so on the box it says Centurion now I have to be again
transparent I've already opened the box I made sure to tape over my credit card
number just in case the floor goes wrong but so in case you see some tape and be
aware I've already opened it and put some tape on it so I can record this
video for you but let's go over the box so the box is kind of sturdy but I
wouldn't say it's some fancy crazy finish I would say it's like MacBook
when you buy a MacBook you kind of get the same box except this is black and it
says Centurion so then the features now the beautiful thing would I really like
this on the back of this box it has a small logo of American Express which I
thought was really cool and then when you open the box you're greeted with
this and this is a book and again it says Centurion and in the book you get a
ton of pictures so these are I know actually you know what these pictures
mean they just to be honest it seems like they got some royalty-free pictures
from a website and just poured it in the book but you know it looks good that's
good and then on page 13 it starts now
I'm Dutch so it's all in Dutch so it'll be hard to translate but in short the
first page says welcome to an extraordinary world we are here for you
and you are part of a select group of people welcome welcome to Centurion it
says so obviously when I read that again I was quite pleased the reason why is
because this this card actually was on my vision board and the reason why is
because when I craft my vision boards they always feel like it should be
something unattainable so when they actually called me up without me
applying for it it seemed too good to be true at first I thought it was a scam
because they sent it from an email that wasn't American Express but it was the
short name of American Express and the evil so don't remember exactly what was
but something like 80 something until I double-checked the guy who sent it on
LinkedIn and he was the Benelux manager of American Express so it seemed legit
now the second page is it says the ultimate Limited Edition and then it
goes into the the fact that the cards made out of titanium one of the most
special metals in the world and after that they go into the table of contents
now the table of contents is really interesting because it explains a little
bit more about the relationship manager the experiences these are the topics and
I've read the travel privileges and the services
now this is partially why I'm happy there is a book because like you can't
find anything about this card so much so that when they called me to to to invite
me for this card I asked them do you guys have a website or something for me
to decide whether it's worth it and what they did is they they I think they copy
pasted something and just put it straight in the email these are the
privileges you get it said there wasn't really a PDF there was nothing it was
just like the connection I had via email and and just the trust that I had of
what they told me on the phone so a lot of kind of I'm assuming they trust you
know that I'm a loyal client I've always paid my bills so then it might be
interesting for me to collaborate further and also I talked about it with
the guy I had a drink with they looked at what I spent my money on and assumed
that I would be a good client so I guess well I bought it so I guess they know
their customers so the relationship manager and then you have like a custom
kind of to fit your suit picture and a traveling Vegas and then here's unknown
service notes are not unknown unex like the really cool service premium it's
super bad at translating this I'm sorry now the one thing that bothers me about
Centurion here in the Netherlands is yes the service is 24/7 but your actual
relationship manager because he's an actual
works from nine to five so after that you get switched over to the UK and then
in case you need something they will take over I've already tried it a couple
of times that you always end up with the UK service but that's kind of what they
tell you here you can contact them from nine to five
yeah that's it's the beauty of the Centurion part is that it's not only for
me it's also for an extra card holder and I had I had the gold card before so
whenever you read about platinum cards and that's the only requirement that's
not true I actually got the offer to upgrade to
platinum I didn't want to because I barely read far so I didn't see much
benefit in that and the lounge axis with the gold card you also get the lounge
access and then it's like euros or something afterwards but you still get
access I know when I travel I only use check-in so there really was no benefit
in me getting the Platinum part the expenses that I do I mean honestly
yeah the membership rewards are brave and I've been using them a lot but I
mean the Platinum part was just not worth it and I'll go deeper into why I
got the Centurion card and not the Platinum part of it later but uh let's
go into experiences so that's a we're on page 22 now and then go into experiences
they tell you about legendary experiences and VIP concerts and the
best table and restaurants you know this is what I actually really
liked about this card is something called Centurion moments so sometimes
you have a band a real pre releasing something and then they invite you to a
private concert which by the way is free so they invite all the center in part
hope members to join they're actually asked if the actual Centurion card
holders are invited or if it's like their family or friends or whatever and
the reason why that matters to me is from a business perspective because if
these are actually Centurion card holders then there's potential business
opportunities there we could help each other whereas if it's just somebody they
know that pops up there then there's a smaller chance that you know it's
actually a networking thing and the reason I say that is because I'm
actually part of a couple organizations here in the Netherlands where literally
I have to pay a yearly fee which I buy I don't like but there are great
organizations great people in there and the only kind of point of it is the
network you know vibe with mutual people that are going through the same thing
and just that community feeling especially when you're doing
entrepreneurship which is quite lonely is sometimes worth some kind of money
and that's already one of those things that I really liked about Centurion even
though I haven't experienced that yet to have to be honest
I'm not sure what's going to happen there so after you go into this again
pictures no idea why do you use these pictures and then you go to travel
privileges so in the travel privileges they welcome you they tell you pretty
much what they tell you in the Platinum part which is you have 1200 lounges and
no same thing then you get oh this is a good thing so you get privileges when
you stay in a hotel so early check-in guaranteed late check-out free upgrade
to your room free of breakfast for two people and
special extras that add up to I see here $100 in dinners and spas and whatever
and then you also get if you also get a voucher for spa up to $75 they see here
free room and great all that stuff so yeah it's pretty cool I like that the
vacation collection these are different Hotel kind of conglomerates and then
this is what they offer cruise privileges like girlfriends grandparents
but in case you do cruises it says that you can you have a budget to spend on
board and you can even get a bottle of champagne I mean not sure how important
that is back in the magic if you send the grandparents you know will be a nice
addition especially a good gift this is what I really really liked because it's
short cuts and I love short cuts I super lazy when it comes to that I don't want
to go through all the royalties and amp up I don't want a short cut and so the
center part kinda gives you that shortcut into loyalty programs
so with Radisson you get the gold status with Hilton you get the diamond elite
status IHG Club platinum elite status Malea rewards platinum shangri-la Golden
Circle diamond memberships Starwood Preferred Guest gold and LEED status and
then what I really like them that's partially also I went for it is the
crafted journeys so it's literally a nightmare when you have a ton of
employees and you do team buildings a lot this culture is super important to
me I mean these people are my family and so I spend most of my time with them so
I really I want to do cool team buildings for planning those team
building specially here starts getting up to like we're now look
above 20 people I mean just climbing that is horrible and so partially what I
really like is that you have a relationship manager pretty much will
arrange everything for you including and that's what they promised me finding all
the best discounts in a great place so that we feel happy accommodated and and
that we just have an amazing experience I mean they promised me that Centurion
gives you the backdoor to everything it gives you not so I actually asked them
on the phone does it mean if I get the Centurion card that I'm gonna be paying
extra because they see that I have a sincere in part and they promise me that
it's actually not the case it's what you get is access to a backdoor where you
get extreme better privileges which means to me
discounts so that you have to pay less for certain things that normally cost
more and so that actually sounds very attractive because at the end of the
year I can actually calculate I can literally just calculate an excel sheet
how many benefits I got out of it and whether the price was worth it and if
not I mean that's part of taking risks right sometimes it doesn't pay off
you know you also money we're in the beginning it's obviously super scary
when you know I was I didn't have anything but now it's part you need to
have that risk budget if you don't have that risk budget then what's the point
of you being an entrepreneur in the first place
anyways we go on the next page which is page 43 the privileges when you fly
preview which is great as in Amsterdam they have the Peruvian lounge which
looks great I've never visited it actually but I always I always end up
being there five minutes before the plane closes so I usually run through
the airport so yeah the global lounge collection I think that's the same
actually as the Platinum part they did tell me that because I now have a
Centurion card that my old lounge card needs to be replaced so pretty much had
to throw it away and now have to wait until the new lounge card arrives so
that's something to know when you're switching if you're switching then you
have a meeting Greed's if you fly in business or first class you'll be
personally greeted at the gates with to do the passport and baggage control and
make sure that there's a car with a driver I mean okay if you have a
skateboard with me like a smoke any board escape through the gates I
actually never have a problem with it except for when I'm in the States and
there's always like in some airport there's always somebody from security
who's stopping me with that skateboard but outside of that in Asia or
never a problem with the skateboard but uh VIP service exclusive VIP service in
Amsterdam that stuff is not actually super important to me but so what they
say is right before departure or right after if you arrive you will be
transported with luxury vehicles to your airport or the VIP center you just need
to make sure that you booked it through your Centurion relationship manager okay
who like I like this watch here watch there's actually something really
interesting I was talking to the guy who delivered my Centurion card and he told
me that part of what the relationship lender can do shout out good deals on
watches so literally if my job was a professional a watch collector and you
know selling flipping watches and all that stuff which is a legitimate
business just not my business I could literally just have my relationship
manager scout out these watches and make sure to like to negotiate a great deal
for me so pretty much my entire business would be outsourced to Centurion so
that's a business idea maybe if things don't go well but probably not gonna do
that so then we go to privileges when you rent cars now I don't run cars
because I live in the in a city where you can bike everywhere that's on
purpose actually moved here because I didn't want to
in a city like New York where having a car would literally not be the best case
scenario so I do everything by bike I love it I chose the city for that reason
it is where I live actually one of the best connected stations
in Europe and has multiple airports around it including Amsterdam Airport
and and so I really liked living here without a car now I never ever consider
renting the park because I have this thing with the business so our business
has this thing with with car sharing so I can just literally just car share and
barely anything but with the Centurion card what you get is these privileges
which again means discounts to such an extent that it's actually it might be
cheaper to rent a car for me if I go to the IKEA or something then than to do
the car sharing thing they upgrade you right away to the Hertz Gold president
circle and the Avis President's Club which which I really love is 35%
discount as well as an upgrade to two car categories higher if available with
Avis and then a ton of other stuff with Hertz like pick up in the livery service
free skiing apparel and stuff like that which I mean I tried to at least once a
year go somewhere to the mountains to you know snowboarders
they haven't done it this year but you know it would be cool and then you know
the usual stuff which is the insurances and the global assists
I actually got into American Express because I started traveling a lot and
global insurances are quite expensive and so the American Express had actually
a cheaper insurance if you buy the card so I would have a credit card which
gives a membership reward as well as the insurance maybe I didn't do my research
properly but at the time when I actually got it it was the best insurance now
then we get to services what kind of services do they have well the
Membership Rewards be mapped by the membership rewards are exactly the same
as Watson mark 1.5 Membership Rewards points for every euro you spend I have
insurance same thing it's kind of it I like this one this this is actually the
picture that I received when they invited me and it it really shapes what
Centurion is which is they can just arrange this amazing kind of you would
you know for dates which is awesome great just planning dates you know it
takes time as well so these are like small things so that is the Centurion booklet you get
with it I wish all of this was available on a website before I ordered it but you
know if it seems pretty cool then there is a letter and I haven't read the
actual letter completely so you'll be reading it with me and here it says
welcome to Centurion it's a I'm literally translating so if I take a
break please bear with me so welcome to Centurion it's a great pleasure to
welcome you to our extraordinary world of Centurion wherever in the world
whatever you will ask us we will be ready for you for your Centurion
membership there is a unique Centurion card the only card in its kind and made
by the most special metals in the world titanium with every letter of your name
handcrafted holy moly I didn't know that as a Centurion member you will have
special privileges that are only allocated for a few your membership will
give you personal will give you a personal Centurion relationship manager
that will know your preferred things and where you didn't ask just about anything
whether it's travelling tailor-made vacations art culture entertainment your
relationship manager will be there for you on the visiting on the on the card o
in the visiting part in this package you will find his or her contact thing
data we're going to get that card yet I guess they will they told me they will
call me next week about that so I'll get the card then I guess yeah I
kind of that's also something I have to mention I kind of made them speed it up
because I'm actually leaving next week on a 10-day trip and I need a credit
card and actually cancelled my old credit card so that they could start
this credit card so that's why I kind of sped it up and that's why it was a sales
executive bringing the center and card and not someone else anyways if you wish
something and it's possible your Centurion relationship manager will be
happy to provide it for you I wish you a very good happy beginning of your
special journey through the world of Centurion and I hope that you will enjoy
it through the new and unique experiences that Centurion offers you
and it's written by the guy the country manager of Benin Dukes now think this is
printed this is not this is not a handcrafted message I
think one of my mentors has the Centurion card yeah I think he got the
exact same one just in English so I actually double-check
I know some people that have visited other countries I double-check with them
the food's worth it now normally there is this so here there's a card now I
have two parts and I got two cards the second card is with one of my employees
she's my right hand and so she got a card as well but without further ado
let's go into my part which I put in the wrong way which is wide such drama
actually normally it's anyways so I'm very sorry so but in any ways they give
you this kind of stuff as you see I put some tape over it
for obvious reasons I'm happy to share this thing with you because it's an
amazing experience that I always wish for for a long time since I started my
business I know it's a stupid kind of like dream but for me it was something
to aim for and that's why I was very happy when out
of the blue they called me I found it I literally said no to the Platinum Card
so I never expected doing something for the Centauri maybe because I so before I go actually into the card
there's this thing here which I really like and then you can open this what you
will find in here is luggage tax with the Centurion thing which is really cool
it's just like luggage taxed and then you have these bracelets for it as well so that is it luggage tags you get two
of those I guess for the amount of money you pay better than nothing and then you
fold it in anyway so let's go into the actual here so I'm just gonna but so this Centurion hard the first thing
that I noticed and so my other employee was a card didn't have this smell so
this is interesting but when I smelled it like it still smells like chocolate I
don't know if they know that I like chocolate that much because the other
card didn't smell like chocolate or I don't know what happened but it smells
like chocolate and it's literally amazing to smell and it's not my fingers
because third day and I washed it you know I don't know this is so funny but I
love chocolate and it smells like chocolate which I have no idea why now
the first thing is the sound like this is literally this is just really sturdy
it doesn't Bend it is it is it is a really well I have to be honest at the
end of the day it's just a card but for me it's you know accomplishing a goal
and and having an accomplishment of goal and it being so remarkable like a
titanium car that smells like chocolate and it's completely black it's just for
me really nice because it pops up what I always wanted to say is I so what I
always say is I don't like tattoos I don't do that many tattoos we have
tattoo clients and you know they do same thing at the end of them filmmaker
I love the art especially how they do it but I'm just I'm not a tattoo guy I
don't like putting stuff on my body metals are not for me
but what I have is these tiny things that just are like a tattoo or things
that I wear every day and or use every day and one of those things are watches
so for me watches have an emotional connection they represent something and
it's one thing that I look at every day because I need to know the time and I
wanted to remind me of something and it's the reason why I'm not gonna wear
an Apple watch anytime soon just because there's more to that than than just the
watch aspect there is the reminder to work harder I mean just just this watch
alone it just represents the people I look up to and so to remind me that I
can I can work more obviously would work-life balance and mind which is
again the connection I have with this watch and so the credit card will kind
of go into the same kind of ordeal for me payment services it's something I use
every day and if I'm able to take out a card and I
mean in the Netherlands this card doesn't be much if I'm really honest
because there are a lot of banks that give you an entry-level bank account and
they give you a black card as well I mean the card looks black so it's
probably in distinguisher indistinguishable and have to be honest
from all the employees we had in the company I think maybe one person knew
what a black card was or heard the stories about it the only reason they
know now is because obviously I've talked about
but so this card actually is more of an emotional thing and what it represents
then then what it actually is so in short if you're ever offered a Centurion
card and you literally just want to boast because it's a black card then I
mean you can just get any card out there there are so many cards now where you
can even personalize the picture so you could literally just get a picture from
Google with the American Express thing just put it on there or just make a
completely black card so just it being black isn't gonna get you any points
let's put it that way so if you're gonna get it to make sure that you know it's
something you know more than that unless you're actually using it the way I hope
I'll be using it which brings me actually to the pros and the cons of
this car from obviously what I've experienced I only have a couple of days
to have an experience much so first the pros and the cons so I'm gonna actually
take an iPad and I'm gonna look up on Google what they have because everything
I researched on Google was almost incorrect it's really hard to get to
know anything everything I read for you in that book I haven't found anywhere on
Google but I found this one website a Dutch website which again I need to
translate but it was kind of closest to being accurate none of the English ones
seemed pretty accurate to me it seemed weird Wikipedia was actually pretty good
but this one was interesting because so the card well the history of the cars
obviously in the beginning was kind of a myth and then they introduced it because
there were a lot of rumors and it got introduced in 91 and that you
and then in the Netherlands in 2005 I actually talked with the guy and they
said they have like a small kind of group of people that take care of
Santeria to make it really that personalized and cool so some things
they say here you should have at least a platinum card so that's kind of already
be bumped now I have to say I think I'm a special case because of the fact that
the spend eternal is actually quite a lot because we we spend whatever we
could spend through the card we did obviously and so so probably that's why
eventually and the plasma card was offered to me I just had some issues
with it which is the reason why I didn't upgrade at the time and then see
beneficial to me at the time if I would have traveled more or had more car
rentals probably I would have used it another thing is so all this stuff about
like your income and at least how much you spend I'm not going to go too deep
on that I was raised not talking too much about money but I mean it's still
cool to share this kind of stuff I can only tell you that I'm not sure how
accurate all of this is actually asked again why was I selected and the guy
answered it's not how much you spend it's on what you spend and because one
of the things that we do as a team is all those team buildings and the growth
of the company also led I mean we literally doubled over the summer so all
of these spend atures that we were doing with the team buildings and the
traveling and when I speak somewhere I think that's what God picked up on the
radar and that's why they invited me because I didn't apply for the card
actually didn't know they had it here in the Netherlands and so I don't think
income is as much a deal as what you're spending it on and I guess I'm not gonna
go too deep on dad it's basically all I know and all I ask them so you cannot
ask this card you have to be invited which is true the way they did it well
the way they did it is weird that mentors who really got like a card sent
to them I just got it I said cool more information explained everything I did
tell them that you know I want to see more information to compare a little bit
but the whole thing was done in less well it was the whole thing was done in
less than a week but then the actual card delivery took really long so they
have to craft them again again that parents handmade so it took really long
before everything God changed the Centurion I think it's like two months
almost sometimes they do it in a month so in my
case it wasn't so then it says here you get you know a black box to your
doorstep which I already explained they actually deliver it here which I
appreciate a little bit more because you know it's nice to have a face to to who
I'm talking to especially with a relationship manager and then okay so
here's the thing so the black heart everybody's like unlimited spending the
Black Card the Centurion card is just the exact same card as it is with you
know platinum or gold or even the green one it's not unlimited spending it's
based on how you spend it so if I'm not gonna be spending thirty million dollars
every month obviously because I don't have that money so my unlimited spending
sure isn't gonna be thirty millions I have probably a specific limits I don't
know exactly what my limit is whenever I do a big expense
I call them upfront because they know that I pay every month they know that
I'm probably good for it if I you know tell them on the phone and I'm good for
it sometimes if they don't trust me they might ask additional financial
information but it's not unlimited spending it's the same unlimited
spending you would have with a green card of gold card or a platinum card so
that's really kind of like a myth that is the bunk if you're making 30 million
30 million a month that you want to spend on a private jet you're probably
gonna be able to spend it on a Centurion card but again in the Netherlands if
they accept an American Express because not everywhere do they accept
American Express even though I have to be honest it's getting better and better
and I'm actually getting you know my money back from from the old cards know
whenever I spend and get it back in membership rewards and I've been
literally that previous card has made me money because of that especially when I
have to book a flight I mean I can just book it through my mouth get my money
back so 24/7 as assistants look it's not really 9:00 to 5:00 and then if you want
to get the UK ones the benefits are cool even though on the web sites everywhere
I look they didn't actually list those benefits with the diamonds and the
presidents clubs and stuff like that if I knew that this card gives you so many
discounts I mean I would've actually been way more open to it
on the first call because it was a little bit skeptical in that first call
that's kind of most of the things that are mentioned here the Centurion lounge
networks I mean honestly the Platinum part gets you most of those as well so
it's just like this small things where it beats the card out and that's kind of
where I go into the pros for me so why did I get the black card so there were
two things which I kind of already mentioned the pros of the American
Express Centurion black card so one was potentially meaning others and turn card
holders that are on the same path as me just getting into those circles is I
mean you have to pay no matter whether you get the black card or you go to
and then internationally and most of those events are held in the US so that
alone costs a couple of thousands so that was one of the things that seems
really exciting the second thing and that was more probably the thing that
you know was more interesting to me is what you actually get in personalized
service so I'm actually gonna ask for an entire list of everything everything
that was ever asked in Centurion I just want to see how my relationship manager
reacts to that because what they promised me is a personal assistant and
if I really look at the price per month for this card and what I get what what
kind of assistant I would be getting for that then it would literally save me
money and it would save the company a lot of time especially HR I mean my
employees are amazing there are amazing people but if their time you spend with
looking stuff up on you know Airbnb or whatever that's literally time that we
could have been spending on scaling or finding new ways to inspire or you know
impact or whatever the things that make them special and so that's partially why
objectively it seems like it could be a good deal but again I don't know I only
know at the end of the year after I've run everything through Excel and seen
how much time and money this card actually saved because if you know it's
just dream in my head then you know it's a risk it's a risk that we took as an
entrepreneur that's your job you have to take risks but so far I kinda have to
say with my previous experience with the last card it was a risk I took it and it
paid off like really really paid off so I'm kind of hoping this card will do the
same especially when a brand has proven itself to me that it really pays off I
always give it the benefit of the doubt to take that risk again and so I also
heard stories one of the other that there are other cardholder members there
are speakers that travel all over the world have to book their own
accommodation so that's literally everything that a relationship manager
can do and then you can only imagine how much you know of a save and just you
know I especially when you travel I'm really bad I've quite some allergic
reactions to some food just being able for somebody that has unlimited
availability to you to scout out restaurants where I can actually eat and
not get sick I mean those are little things that eventually pile up and save
time save money and give me better health or less stress but above all and
I think especially when you get to that kind of card it's not only about me it's
also about the team and the people behind me and if I can make their lives
a little bit nicer by having you know a simple card like this I think I think it
makes it worth it so those were kind of the two things are going to my mind as
to why it could be worth it or not again if I rent a car it's a nice
privilege again but it wasn't you know the deal-breaker for me and the lounge
axes and everything super nice I have to be honest I don't use that many lounges
and the reason why is because when I travel and I go to some of these airport
lounges the things they give in there are just like alcohol and really shitty
sweets and that much alcohol so it's not like I'm
gonna get wasted right before a flight so these lounge access yeah I mean it's
not like they have boots there with you know plugs and stuff it's kind of the
same as outside where sometimes outside you have better plugs for your computer
and better space to sit plus you're actually next to the gate and you can
see when people board so those are the two pros that kind of made it a good
deal for me the cons it's really expensive like ridiculous I don't see if
it will pay off I'm kind of hoping on that you know we'll figure out a way to
make it pay off but in general yeah I mean the other con is the swell it could
be a pro or it could be a con right I mean still cool to be associated to
something bullet Centurion but that's actually also a con and the way I phrase
it usually I used to have this red motorcycle when I was a student and I
didn't have a girlfriend back then and so I thought oh if I have this red
motorcycle you know girls would pay attention to me so that's not how works
when you go with your red motorcycle on on the street it's usually the super
weird guys that will scream at you hey it's a super weird experience so I kind
of sold that motorcycle but so with the Centurion card I'm kind of well I'm
hoping it won't happen like that but I'm just crossing my fingers and hoping that
that con will not pop up that we'll just be positivity and good people
as long as I put positivity out of the world but but I'm kind of scared a
little bit that when people see this card they will think that we do some
crazy things whereas what they don't know is that all
the money almost that we get is the book puts back into the culture the team the
business possibilities to impact because at the end of the day I mean I'm pretty
young I really don't need to have personal money if I have money
it usually I mean for me my family is the people I work with every day and so
the happiness of them is where the one should go and I realize that in this
whole stuff how I was taught leadership so by the ways back to that's possibly a
bomb we are people looking at you associating some things thinking you are
not a cool a rich person which if anybody knew me they would associate me
a little bit more with a child than a rich person I do tend to game a lot to
leave in the night which is something I need to work on but so yeah so that's
kind of another comment I'm a little bit scared of and I think the reason I'm
scared of it is because of massive introvert I try only to speak on camera
when I need to and so in general I quietest at networking nights that's why
I'm a cool team right that are all X River almost all of them are introverts
to compensate for my so another con which is it is that if
you use a card it will cost quite a lot of money to get a new one
so yeah I'm not sure if they will get you a new part for free but I did read
somewhere that if you have an extra if you need an extra card you'll be paying
quite a lot of money so that's a massive column so I'm just going to be really
careful with this card and and in general I mean in general there as well
the small cons are like hey Centurion why couldn't you do more membership
reward points like it seems like Centurion and platinum are quite similar
and that's actually quite shitty because you're paying way more for a bar so you
kind of expect more benefits even though I do realize you're paying for your
relationship manager more but like it would be cool if you know you would get
three membership reward points which is a double of platinum because the price
is you know way more than double for Platinum Plus you have the joining fee
as well so yeah outside of that I guess we're
here in the conclusion part of it which is is this car as I said unless you're going in with
the mindset that I had which is this is a risk that we're taking to see if it
pays off just like the old card we did it it paid
off and so now we're kind of taking off a risk which is obviously a high risk I
do realize that the whole car but we've also grown at this point so we're taking
another risk seeing if it will pay off over a course of a year and seeing if it
will actually save us stress money HR drama whatever and just in general make
me feel that I'm able to relax and being able to eat the right food when I'm
abroad because I cannot eat certain types of foods and that's partially why
I stopped traveling because I really just don't like that whole experience
and so maybe I'll start liking traveling so yeah so is it worth it to me I think
it is I think it is we will see at the end of the year but like again is it
worth it to you there's a high chance it's probably not worth it unless you're
one of those people that I mentioned like a speaker who travels all over the
world and needs to book his own accommodation somebody who is an
entrepreneur and travels on their laptop I can imagine for you this would be
amazing but then obviously you need a fixed address so much or how you would
get this hard but to these small things if you are by any chance one of those
people I think it's actually really worth it for other
since and it's worth it to me because I have a fixed company not travelling too
much obviously if you're flush with cash and you have you know know where to
spend your money on I think one of the good things is to have a card like this
just cause the relationship manager will be able to take care of most of the
things you need throughout your day because you're flushing cash or probably
wanting some exclusive things like watches and and restaurants and whatever
and even though I don't do most of those restaurants and concerts and all that
beautiful stuff I can imagine for those people that really enjoyed that kind of
stuff they do so yeah is it worth it I don't know it's super
expensive I hope it'll be worth it but we'll only
know at the end of the year see ya with that being said I feel like this video I
know give me a comment I would love to actually know about war stories about
this car I just want to give a disclaimer as well be careful with
credit cards like the credit cards paid the bills like I've only got in this car
because I paid the bill at the end of the month and never spent more than what
I could afford I got a card because I got those membership reward points so
instead of you know using my debit card and losing money I actually had a card
that now made me money because for every expenditure that I did I would get
membership rewards and save myself money with that so be careful with credit
cards don't go crazy those are spending a lot of money
expecting this card like I said it's a very strategic move on my part as to why
it could be worth it but so small disclaimer there now if you liked it
comment below what what kind of stories you know about this card things that
people did or asked their relationship manager that
really interesting I'd love to test it out and yeah I guess that's kind of it
thanks so much for watching thank you so much for being here with me through this
entire journey this has been on my vision board for
