There is a $5,000 "initiation fee" and a $2,500 annual fee.
Do you really want to be invited?

My friend has one he said It's not worth it for the regular consumer only big spending as you need to spend at least $150,000 a year. He said for him It's worth it as he uses the benefits that come with the card. If you want to know more info here is the  link to it on Wikipedia  (http://www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/black_card)

I find it hard to believe that anyone can justify the centurion's fees.  It's just a nice piece of wallet-candy.

Besides you still only get regular MR points for spending, which aren't nearly as valuable as SPG points...
