Visa is rolling out its new “Black Card” to compete with the Centurion card from American Express.


  • Limited Membership
  • 24-Hour Concierge Service
  • Exclusive Rewards Program
  • Luxury Gifts
  • Patent Pending Carbon Graphite

I’m not sure how one would benefit from carrying around a carbon graphite card, but what the heck.

This card appears to be a relative bargain compared with the Centurion.  The Black Card will cost $495 per year while the Centurion costs $2,500 per year.

For further reading, here is an interesting Wikipedia article about the Centurion card, and how it was developed to capitalize on an urban legend about an ultra-exclusive black Amex card which was only given to dignitaries and celebrities.
