Are you required to use the corporate AmEx issued by McKinsey or can you use a personal card? Debating whether to upgrade to the corporate AmEx platinum or get the CSR for travel. Any thoughts/advice would be much appreciated

In US: Flights are booked from a central acct (no CC used); you can expense hotels on a personal card; all other purchases must be expensed to the corporate AMEX From what I’ve heard, few people upgrade their corporate card, esp w the majority of the firm not yet traveling again. Welcome to the firm!
