Sad placam 40 umesto 700 godisnje sto sam placao preko 10 godina. Sto bi rekao jedan moj kolega "I've lived like a nigger my entire life".
But that is about to change now.

Zasto je toliko skupo (700 Eura)?  Ovde 625$ za dve kartice (450 + 175).

ovde je 700, a uz nju dobijes 1 extra platinum + up to 4 gold ako ti treba.

Za svaki potrosen euro dobijes jedan reward point (a za zelenu 1/2). Za te kasnije mozes da kupujes neke stvari ili da zamenis za cash, 10 eura za 2600 points. Sto je oko 0.4% rebate. Ja upravo zamenio preko 100K points za 400 eura.

Imas jos neke benefite koje ja ne znam / ne koristim. Jedino sto smo koristili i supruga i ja je sto su nam dali svakom po Priority pass za aerodrome. A posto cesto putujemo to smo dosta koristili. Mada su ti VIP lounges po Evropi u principu dosta lose, tako da ni to nema neku preteranu vrednost.

A i fin je unutrasnji osecaj (koji je verovatno samo to i nista vise - licni osecaj) kad placas platinum karticom negde umesto zelenom, ali prevazisli smo to racunam. A i nema se para. Pogotovo ovo drugo.  :x

Дакле да би ти се исплатила годишња премија од 700$ довољно је да картицом у току потрошиш 150K евра и да све исплатиш на време у току грејс периода?

А ти си се питао зашто онај мали није хтео да прихвати твоје финансијске савете  :roll:

Priority Pass x 2 = 198E

Значи да је потребно да истрошиш 100К евра на картици (без исплаћеног цента у виду камате) да би изашао на нулу са годишњом премијом.

Ako placas 700e godisnje to znaci da je break even point @ 182.000e. A i posle toga na svakih 260e dobijes 1e... Nadam se da su ostale beneficije bolje, jer im points i nisu nesto.

Kod nas samoposluge daju vouchers za gorivo, mozes da dobijes 4c popust na gorivo ako doneses racun iz samoposluge. Kad je ta akcija zapocela bila je prava manija. Kad sam izracunala da se radi o manje od $3 ustede po jednom sipanju goriva prestala sam da ih koristim. Nije vredno zajebavanja.

Verujem da su uslovi za AMEX u Amerikama i u Evropi drugaciji, ovde AMEX nije dobrodosao. Naplacuje se dodatni surcharge za AMEX oko 2%. Mnoga mesta ni ne primaju AMEX.

Znala sam jednog tipa koji je imao nekakvu black karticu kojom se ponosio kao da mu je iz vagine izasla. Te vidju je kako je lepa, te ja kad dodjem pa izvadim karticu svi popadaju. Nije mi jasno. Ko popada? Zasto?? Ljudi koji nisu u toj prici nemaju pojma o cemu se tu radi, prema tome nemaju potrebnih uslova da padnu u nesvest od odusevljenja. Sto je najbolje moze ju posedovati svaka budala koja ima potrebu da se odrekne svojih para na ime clanarine tog "black card" kluba.

Jos taj sto imamo mi mozes besplatno da povedes jednog gosta. Mada, za mene ne vredi 400 eura, verovatno bih dao 100-150 eura za to godisnje, vise ne.

Znala sam jednog tipa koji je imao nekakvu black karticu kojom se ponosio kao da mu je iz vagine izasla.

Meni je nudili pre desetak godina kad sam jedne godine potrosio preko 100K eura.
Godisnja clanirana 2000 eura, jos mi poslali sample karticu u nekakvom luksuznom pakovanju i knjizicu sa raznim benefitima. Posto se nisam odazivao zvali me posle mesec dana i pitch im je bio "ako zelis da ides u neki (bilo koji) poznati restoran u NYC (ili bilo gde drugde), nisi rezervisao a kazu ti da nema mesta, dovoljno je da nazoves nas i mi garantujemo stol u roku od pola sata. Posto me to nije ubedilo poceo da mi prica o nekim jahtama i ako zelim da iznajmim model jahte koji je vec neko iznajmio oni ce intervenisati i obezbediti mi jahtu koja mi se svidja. To vec nisam bio izdrzao da se ne smejem.   xrotaeye xrofl

Zena me poslednje vreme tera da idemo za Kanadu. A sa prijateljima kakav je Pijanista covek jednostavno ne zna na cemu je. Jos pre sam ga pitao da li bih tamo mogao da potrosim 100k na karticu a da me niko ne maltretira i nikakav odgovor. You got me on a pay no mind list?

Imam jednog kolegu od pre, Amerikanca koji zivi ovde, i pitao njega sta on misli o tome, a on mi kaze nije siguran za Kanadu, ali ako bih potrosio $150K amex karticom u Americi bez oficijalnog income-a (dakle nista opklade, casino itd), "right around January 15th - January 20th, depending on how long it would take him to process the data, you'd be sitting with your family enjoying a movie or a dinner at your home and all of a sudden you'd hear police siren and tires screeching and then a voice through a megaphone (i tu poceo da imitira megafon) WE HAVE SURROUNDED THE PREMISES. COME OUT WITH YOUR HANDS IN THE AIR"    xrofl :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Umro sam od smeha.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centurion_Card

Centurion, aka Black Card, is a big deal, in the following sense:

The Centurion Card is invitation-only after an appropriate net worth, credit and spending criteria are met.[2] American Express does not publicly disclose the requirements necessary for getting a card except that the cardholder has a substantial net worth and they are a former platinum card holder.[2] For reference, the average Centurion cardholder has $16.3 million in assets and an annual household income of $1.3 million.

Vraga. mozda prvih godinu dve kad se pojavila pa su je delili samo glumcima, pevacima i poznatim licnostima. Do sad je verovatno ima dobrih 50-100K ljudi world wide.

Ovu su stari podaci, do sad ih ima verovatno puno vise:   http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/american-express-membership-rewards/797170-how-many-centurion-cardholders-there-us.html

Jos su super prevaranti. Svasta obecavaju i za tu platinum, a mene su nekoliko puta prevarili trgovci, aerokompanije i u principu svako ko je hteo i NI JEDNOM nije amex stao na moju stranu. Smradovi.

Sto se tice "more-less developing" countries Johnny nedavno napisao dosta dobar clanak. Nemate vi pojma koliko su Cesi napredovali.


I hate clichés. Don’t you? How many times have you heard ‘distance makes the heart grow fonder.’ Or perhaps ‘what comes goes around.’ Or even ‘action speaks louder than words.’ The list goes on and on and I do not want to get into that here. In any case, that being said, let’s get on with our story.
I am an expat American and therefore among a select group of people. After all, as far as I am concerned, one is not an expat until one has lived in a foreign country at least three years. Anything else is simply passing through. I have now lived where I have lived for the past fifteen years and sincerely feel that I qualify. In fact I have lived here so long that when I return to the states, I feel as though I am a foreigner and a tourist. As the years pass it becomes less and less a part of me. Friends that I used to have are still friends but seeing them is more bittersweet than anything else. It may sound cynical but for me it is more sad than anything else. Family is still family and nothing can change that. For that I am thankful.
I live in Central Europe in a small country called the Czech Republic. Ever heard of it? I don’t mean to be condescending but you would be surprised how many people have no clue as to where I now abide. Considering the fact that ninety percent of Americans don’t even have a passport, perhaps it is not so surprising. I remember when I first came here some fifteen years ago, it was a constant source of surprise for me. I used to lie awake at night asking myself what the fuck I was doing here. After all, I had left a life that was not so bad and did not have to run from my past. Well, it is hard to run from the past and one must accept the present and….adjust.
Unfortunately, the language is more than miserable. No matter how long I live here, it will be a challenge. If I were to live here five centuries I still don’t feel as though I would master it. And my accent would always suck. At least I do speak it more and less but it is still a consistent source of frustration. The truth of the matter is that people who know me understand me. But with strangers or with children I become much more aware of my inadequacy. I am given this blank look that is almost shock. I have seen it so many times that I am no longer affected or at least I would like to believe that. I actually know people who have lived here ten plus years and are completely unable to speak at all. That would be utterly embarrassing.
When I first came here at the turn of the century, the country was still growing and changing and still very much affected by the doldrums of communism. There was, however, a charm that no longer exists. The women dressed terribly, almost in rags with these horrible platform shoes that made them all look like hookers. But they looked great. The poorness of their attire did little to hide their beauty. Those days, unfortunately, are long gone, and the Czech people have adjusted well to capitalism and Western culture. Their clothes are now much more mainstream and now no longer so charming. And, if the truth be told, they are no longer as beautiful. They have become fatter and lazier. They still look good but no longer are they at the level that they once were.
Is this my imagination? Am I just making generalizations that have no basis in reality? I think not and I believe there is a reason for this which I will now attempt to divulge. When I first came here, there was a paucity of cars. People travelled by foot or by bicycle and they were in better shape. However, as time passed, vehicles became more and more common and the people became lazier and therefore fatter. Perhaps it is not up to American standards but it is most definitely noticeable. And it is a damn shame. Also, the best looking women left to the so called ‘greener pastures’. There are many Czech supermodels and they no longer live here. There just is not enough money or exposure. They prefer London, Paris or New York.

One interesting thing to note is the driving here. I can imagine that there are worst drivers but I have personally never seen such vehicular rudeness in my life. This is not an exaggeration and I can provide many examples of this behavior. You take the average Czech man and put him in his car and the personality changes like a Jekyll and Hyde. I am not trying to be amusing here; I am simply stating the truth. When on the highway and barreling along in the fast lane at perhaps ninety or so, it is more than likely that some idiot will go right behind you, tailgating at a meter or so and blasting his lights and horn. I can assure you that it is a most stressful situation and extremely dangerous. And when I mention that it is a man, I am not trying to be politically correct. It is always the case and always the same. And I still have not gotten used to it.
Czech people, as mentioned before, have adjusted to capitalism very well. In fact, they are very savvy. From years of having to manipulate the system and to scramble for whatever they needed, has provided them with the wherewithal to adjust to their current situation. And they have done it well and are becoming richer and richer and are being more and more accustomed to western luxuries that used to be unattainable. A growing middle and upper middle class is the result. It can be easily noticed by the cars that they drive. When I first came here, the predominant form of transportation was the Lada, Trabant, Skoda or perhaps even a small Fiat. Now, we are able to see BMWs, Mercedes, Saabs and typical other luxury vehicles. And the difference is so apparent that it jumps right out at us.
As far as service is concerned, it too has changed. When I first came here it plain sucked and any kind of service was both a shock and a relief. Boorishness and a general bad attitude pervaded. But, nevertheless, there was a certain charm to it once one got used to it.

15 godina 'vata zjala po Ceskoj i nije u stanju da napise decent clanak (o Ceskoj), mislim sustinski.  As I said, snake oil salesman.  Nagledala sam se takvih.  Interesantno, svi uzivaju neki ugled tamo gde se nalaze, baziran valjda na osnovu pripadnosti nekoj od superiornih nacija.

Interesantno, svi uzivaju neki ugled tamo gde se nalaze, baziran valjda na osnovu pripadnosti nekoj od superiornih nacija.

Ne ovde, vec dobrih desetak godina. Pre 15 godina da. Trenutno ugled ovde uzivaju po defaultu samo Nemci. Cesi su brzo naucili da su vecina Amerikanaca i Engleza sto su ovde luzeri i tako ih i tretiraju.
Naravno, all else being equal je daleko bolje biti Amerikanac nego Ukrajinac, Srbin ili Bugarin, ali ne postoji vise automatska prednost zato sto neko govori engleski.

Ovo nije placen clanak, Johnny ga je pisao pre par nedelja posle gubljenja dosta para na kocki, pa je pokusao da se preorijentise na spisovateljstvo. Nije pisan stilski dobro, ume Johnny mnogo bolje (na zalost placene clanke ne mogu da vam pokazem jer ih prodajem ljudima koji traze izricitu ekskluzivnost). Meni se clanak svideo i oslovio me time sto sam i sam dosao ovde pre 15 godina i secam se koliko je sve bilo "lakse" za mene kao stranca koji je dosao iz Zapadne Evrope i imao nekih 15 prosecnih plata mesecno. Ja sam Cesku bukvalno obozavao prvih par godina.

Slicni osecaj sad imam u Ukrajini. Ovde not so much any more. Missim, mogu da odem manje-vise bilo gde, ali sta bih radio npr. u Danskoj ili Svedskoj, gde je skoro svako pametniji, vredniji, i u svakom pogledu bolji od mene?

‘what comes AROUND goes around.’

Americki besprizornik. Kako je Ivan_D jednom podelio sa nama, to je lik/unemployable arhi-probisvet i deadbeat koji ceka da mu umru mama i tata u ostave mu nesto. Ti starci su valjda ziveli u jednoj od 5-6 najcuvenijih high-end co-op zgrada uz Central Park ali su stan prodali i odselili se valjda u Pensilvaniju; missim, djoku ce on da vidi al' dobro sad, damu ne kvarimo ugodjaj.

Baba i deda su mu ziveli u Beresford zgradi. Kad su umrli imetak od tadasnjih $20M je podeljen izmedju cetvoro dece. Tada je Johnny saznao da mu je jedna tetka usvojena iz Belgije pred ili tokom rata a je ona iz nekog razloga dobila samo $2M a ostala dece po $6M jer nije bilo testamenta.

Elem njegovi roditelji su imali mali stan na Manhattnu (80m2) koji su nedavno prodali za $2.2M i otselili se u North Carolinu u neko senior friendly mesto gde su kupili stan.

Johnny ima 2 sestre i buduci da mu roditelji svih ovih godina dosta pomazu ocekuje da ce na kraju dobiti oko $500K kad se sve razdeli.
Ja ga jos pitao je l' sestrama ne smeta da mu roditelji stalno salju pare a on mi odgovorio da im smeta i dodao "Believe me, they're not my friends"    :mrgreen:

Kod Johnnyija volim sto je maksimalno iskren, a to osim kod sebe nisam nigde video u tolikoj meri. On na primer uvek uredno prijavi kad mu roditelji posalju novac iako je vrlo svestan da nema niceg pozitivnog da roditelji izdrzavaju dete od 56 godina, otvoreno prica o tome kako ga zena sa kojom zivi maltretira, da mu ne da da koristi masinu za ves a nece da pere njegove stvari, tako da gace i carape pere u lavabou rucno, kako se u restoranu prema njemu neprijatno ponasaju jer je obucen siromasno i izgleda skoro kao beskucnik i svasta jos.

Gomila ljudi se pretvara da su nesto postigli u zivotu, stavljaju akcent na nekakve gluposti, prave se vazni kao da su uhvatili boga za mooda a u medjuvremenu stede na grejanju.
Not Johnny. On zna gde je i gde mu je mesto.

Od kad je prodao restoran pre 2 godine daje casove engleskog. Putuje po celom gradu i rastura se od posla za relativno malo para. Ali radi to i ne zali se mnogo. Ustaje uglavnom u 5, pola 6 i kuci dolazi, osim petkom, tek oko 7-8 uvece.
Ja sam mu nasao neke od najvecih klijenata sto ima.

Ukratko, Johnny je mega-loser, upropastio je puno, skoro sve sanse, sto mu je zivot dao, ali svestan je toga i ne pretvara se da je nesto sto nije. Veliki deo mladosti je proveo u Beresford zgradi, a sad je kako kaze hajzl-baba (baba sera), ali ne zali se preterano i sve to vrlo dobro podnosi.     xjap

How disturbing.

Više volim da mi se neko izveštačeno osmehne, nego da se spontano izdere na mene.

Ne secam se za koliko mi je rekao da su prodali taj stan kad su mu umrli baba i deda '92
Secam se da su imali 11 spavacih soba. Rekao mi je i da je taj mali stan sto su imali njegovi roditelji ima 3 kupatila.

Not at all. If someone's creepy that'd be you. But you already knew that.

Johnny je vrlo harizmatican, drustven, duhovit i ljudi vole njegovo drustvo. Otuda ima i toliko studenata uprkos tome sto sumnjam u njegove uciteljske sposobnosti.

Ja jedino sto ne volim kod njega je sto se 'grebe', ali on i za to ima spreman odgovor "I have no pride left, no dignity. It won't kill me if you say no and even if there's a 1 in a million chance I'll get something from you it's worth it for me to ask"
