For the Centurion® Lounge
Each location of The Centurion Lounge offers a seasonal menu and signature cocktails along with a host of services and amenities designed to elevate your travel experience. With your Business Platinum Card membership, you and two guests or your immediate family– spouse or domestic partner, and children under 18 can enjoy unlimited complimentary access to The Centurion Lounge. All food and drinks and other amenities and services within the lounge are complimentary.
So my whole immediate family of 4 (me +3) should be able to get in right?
Or does it read as you + 2 guest/family members? So only 2 additional can get in?


Mix results on Google, does aunt/uncle count as "immediate"?
So as long as they are my "immediate" parents / siblings / grandparents / uncle aunts, can I bring in (exaggerated) 50 people to the lounge?

You + 2 guests OR you + spouse + minor children

I believe that's the criteria for Canadian Lounges. Centurion is a little different.

Effy, for the Amex lounges it's you +2 guests OR you + spouse + minor children

For Plaza Premium lounges it's you a guest.

Priority Pass is only the cardholder free? And $27 US per guest?

So I'm guessing a sibling + 2 parents wouldn't cut it for the Centurion lounges?

Check next couple of days to see if there is 25000 referral bonus posted on your Amex Business account. If you see 25000 referral bonus then it means Amex already approve your Amex Business Gold and you don't have to do anything. Just wait for your Amex Business Gold.

Does the initial 5k spend still get covered by buying gift cards?

Applied for the BIZ Gold with my own Biz Plat referral. Couple days later i got a letter saying that i previously made an application for this same card and that application is being approved and the current application is left invalid.

This was the first application i made for BIZ Gold and i never applied before nor ever had the card.

Does this mean i wont receive the 25K referral bonus. This Sucks!

Did this happen to anyone else?

How long have you had the Biz Plat?

I recall a similar story as yours, maybe even more than once. I think those people opened the Biz Gold very soon after opening the Biz Pat, so had to called Amex to explain it's not the same card. Not sure if they were then able to slide the application through or if Amex told them that 2 concurrent biz products were not allowed and that they would allow the card application to be approved but no welcome bonus for the second card.

I'll look for the story(ies). Meanwhile maybe someone else can chime in?

I thought everyone here has both the Biz cards at the same time with no problems.

I got my Biz Plat in November and i got the Plat in December. Just tried getting the Biz Gold in January.

Not everyone. I got my a Biz Plat on November 23rd (instant approval) and applied for Biz Gold on Dec 31. The message indicated to wait up to 10 days for a final answer. Of course I called in early January to speed up the process. Even the CSR was confused and read me the "Congratulations your Business Platinum was approved" spiel. I also eventually got a mailed letter just like you did, dated Dec 31 (my date of Biz Gold application).

In any case, once clarified, he was able to process the application manually and I didn't have to reapply. Referral points posted two days later.
