Do you really want to pay nearly 5% of your gross salary for a credit card annual fee? Seems pretty ridiculous to me.
Thank you for your reply.

I just wanted to hear the legal side of a crazy idea. I have been charging some expenses for friends etc. as I said before. It's good to know what would happen if I go crazy.

As I said, I don't have an extreme lifestyle, I don't fly or stay at hotels a lot, so I won't pay $7,500 to get the Centurion even if they offer it to me today.

I was discussing about it with a friend yesterday and wanted to ask what would happen, because I always see stuff like "how to get centurion" and they say "spend, spend, spend like there's no tomorrow", Charge everything on the card. I wondered if anyone had issues with spending "so much" personally while they don't make that much money. That's it.
