many people have questions about the centurion card
feel free to post any info on that board - is it woth the $ for the perks?, what are the perks etc.
Ok I will ask. Is it worth to pay $1,500 to become an additional so I don't have to pay the $50?

I just got an email titled:

NEW: Your complimentary access to The Centurion(SM) Lounge


It came with a entire email about the lounge. The funny thing is that I have Amex Gold.

Anything I can do about this (to get access)?

I visited the centurion lounge in LAS yesterday, So let me share my experience.

1) You can't enter with a canceled platinum card, As they swipe your card at the front desk to see if it's active, i gave my canceled card at the front desk and they told me right away sorry your card is canceled, But i was lucky enough as i applied for a new platinum  4 days ago, And when i turned around to leave the lounge they called me back saying that they see i was approved for a new card 2 days ago, And they will let me enter even tough i have not received my new card yet. and the rep couldn't get over the amount of canceled platinum cards i have on my account ;D

2) they have a full kosher menu always in stock no need to reserve   right away when i entered i had a friendly chef walking over to me without even asking, asking me if i would like a kosher meal and they had the following main dishes served with 2 sides of Mashed potatoes and cooked vegetables a roll and 2 pastries as a desert.
Mini roast
Schnitzel
Grilled chicken
Baked Salmon
I chose the mini roast and it was fresh hot and delicious. the meals are catered by Haifa kosher restaurant in Las Vegas.

Overall the lounge is beyond beautiful, alot of private spaces with conference rooms, and brand new beautiful designed private showers. A fully stocked complimentary bar (i emptied the whole Glenlivet 21 and they apologized for not having more for the night  :D)     
They have a very helpful service desk as well, They helped me with switching seats and tried to upgrade me to business but they got stuck in the middle since the flight started boarding already.

Thanks.

I have an active Gold card on a Platinum card, because I upgraded and then downgraded, but never activated the new gold card I got, so I still swipw a Platinum looking card, curious what the story is with that.

How many visitors can a plat member bring in the lounge at a time? I just got a PRG and BGR and I assume that I will get the upgrade email to plat, but I wonder about being able to enjoy with others. Don't know the details yet. Any insight?

i was there again last week ( i ordered in advance - didnt know they have stock!) but i did not know their warming/cooking  so i ordered a tuna sandwich and a pastrami cold cut sandwich

very impressed again - not to mention the blue label/ double black (smokey) not listed on the menu

the front desk is not the "regular welcome"
they are actually trained reps for amex-
you can discuss anything with them regarding your account

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

1. I got in with an expired plat as the rep assumed they didn't send me the new one yet

2. You need to call ahead for kosher food if you are in a rush.
