I seem to recall that calling the number on the back of your card and explaining the situation does yield a call forwarded to the appropriate group. From there, they'll be able to find...

Keep us posted!

Still waiting here for my call (going on 9 years now). :)

I've been requesting once a year for the last 7 years.

That's correct. Although, once they're closed they stop getting older, and thus their meaningful impact on average age of accounts diminishes over time. That's what I'm most worried about.

Isn't closing 4 cards that have been open forever and ever (in favor of 1 single brand new account) a bad thing with respect to credit scores long term?

I definitely understand that principle, but what does that have to do with a Centurion invite?

Honestly, I'm pretty sure the CEO has the authority to ask for that string to be pulled. ;)

Official confirmation today: SPG can only convert to SPG. Delta to Delta.

I applied for the SPG Luxury card, but I'm definitely over the limit, so we'll see what happens.

Agreed. Anyone who believes the CEO can't pull strings in the company they are the Chief Executive of is clearly misguided and doesn't understand the power of management hierarchies.

There's no way Centurion is separated from Amex. It's just that the Centurion US team tends to operate independently internally, so it's a bit tough to crack their process and methods, really.

Out of curiosity, how have people in the US gotten their invitations?

Is it a phone call? An email? A letter to your billing address? A FedEx package to your home address?

Not me.

Though some spend that I might have put on a different card for better rewards does end up going to my Amex Plat because of this. It's a very low amount however.
