I'm not Centurion, just have BZ Plat with 5 other cards. Got a $250 GC to David Yurman from Amex. Thank you Amex!

Received that here in NB too, but since I will not be anywhere with a Holt Renfrew store before it expires, makes it worthless to me, so I tossed it.

And as someone who has shopped at Holt Renfrew when traveling before, the fact you must use it in store (no online) actually makes me want to shop there less when I am in a city with a store.

I am certain they are tied to a specific card.

Yeah, the ones I've received had only required it be a Centurian card, not a specific account number. I've even traded with some of the folks on here to get ones I would actually use in exchange for ones I wouldn't. Never an issue.

The Private Suite at LAX now has a special deal for Centurion members. The $7500 Member fee is waived. There is a usage fee, but I'm not sure what it will be. I'll find out the next time I go to LAX.

I think I saw the fees were $2k - $3k depending on if you are doing an international departure, cost is for up to 4 people in your party.

I received a $250 Holt Renfrew gift certificate for my birthday (not from AMEX) and was unable to buy anything. Maybe $500 could get you a couple of pairs of boxers, but thats it.

Heh.

Couldn't even use them in the Hermes boutique, which is the only reason I go there.

What?! Is this a WOW offer to any Cent, or a specific invitation?

Would love to get this and surprise my husband!

Its a wow offer that came in the usual black Envelope. Like all of the wow offers i am sure it is limited and targeted. You need the mailing and the certificate/credit card that comes with it so if you didnt get the mailing there is
Not a way to also take advantage.

Since the dealers are in limited cities I suspect this is partly targeted by geography.
