My friend's dad has the card and this guy probably charges between 3+ million SGD on his card annually (business owner, business expenses, etc) and he never got his membership fees (SGD 5000) waived. Not sure how did that "someone" you know managed to get the fees waived.
I also wonder. Some more from what I understand the someone seldom use the card also

Obviously, there are far more Centurion Cards in the world than 1500 (no offense bro, common sense) so this limitation is for Singapore only.

In US, if you can pay annual fees of USD 450, you can get your Platinum Charge Card provided that your credit rating is B+ or above (Equifax score 790+, etc). In Singapore, not many banks check your credit rating (Credit Bureau) in order for them to approve your credit card. Besides, many banks fail to update the Credit Bureau regularly (UOB, DBS, Citibank, never update them, only two banks regularly update the database are Amex and HSBC). You can pull up a report by paying SGD 5.00.

I was under the impression that banks always check your credit rating when you applied for a card.

Once you have Centurion Card, you don't need a DBS Insignia in my honest opinion (unless they throw you, "Sir, we're sorry, we don't accept AMEX." line).
But if you spend this sort of money, the places you go to normally would accept AMEX one way or the other.

was told by amex today that the spend requirement is S$250k per annum and that there are many people on wait list and the membership is full at the moment so no more invites until there is a slot.

U misread what i meant...i said "the next best"...meaning if u cant qualify for it u can try the DBS card..

was told by amex today that the spend requirement is S$250k per annum and that there are many people on wait list and the membership is full at the moment so no more invites until there is a slot.
Well thats their polite way of telling you that u dont qualify for it...if the Kwek or Ng family or some other's whos who in the top category ask for the centurion card i m sure they will be more than willing to "free up their slots"..haha
