[Rumor] American Express To Launch New Card In Between Platinum & Centurion (‘AmEx Optio’)
At the Bank of America Future of Financials Conference Doug Buckminster (American Express) was asked to comment on a rumor that American Express planned to launch a card in between Platinum & Centurion, he ummed and uhhed and said yes before finally saying that he had no comment at the time to an audible laugh in the room. Recently American Express has doubled the annual fee on the Centurion card, so the gap between the two cards is now larger than ever. At this stage we don’t know any specifics on what this card would be called or the benefits offered, but I’ve heard enough rumors from other sources to feel somewhat confident that this is a real project that American Express is working on.
