- Charge at least $250,000 per year (though some estimates are as high as $450,000)

How much money do you need for a black American Express card
The black card and how to get one
The card is “by invitation only”, and to even be considered you’ll need to have spent $250,000 on another Amex charge card over the past year. Needless to say, this requires a very high level of income.
How do you get a Centurion card
Getting the card
There’s no official requirement for Centurion eligibility, but we’re talking big bucks. Amex reportedly extends invitations to apply for the business card only if you’ve spent (and paid off) at least $450,000 (or $500,000 — we’ve heard both) across all your Amex accounts in a calendar year.
