@OP spend the money wherever and write “Meal MM/DD” in the expense report. That can tally up the “meals” for the day Technically I eat 5 meals a day because I am a hobbit

funny

Obviously don’t go and charge a “Best Buy” purchase to food

You run through whatever per diem is and it gets reimbursed directly to your bank account. Pay for meals out of pocket so no receipts involved either. It’s nice.

I like having a nice dinner. I have a hard time staying within $100

Isn’t EY $75 for dinner as Sr.manager plus $12 for breakfast? Usually easy to spend dinner allowance with a steak and couple drinks (alcohol). Breakfast is difficult to keep under $12

GT has per diem like that also, travelers make more if they choose to play the game right

What is per diet policy with KPMG?

For dinner and 2 drinks

PwC 1, BestBuy sells snacks by the checkout aisle. I’ve used the meal budget at bestbuy, Costco, Amazon, disneyland...they all sell food in one form or another and nobody cares as long as you stay under. Charge away.

New England Friends: we are a couple in early 30s (No kids yet and a small dog) planning to move to New England from Chicago. Our options are Hartford, CT and Boston, MA. Below are few considerations - 1. SO does not need to travel and will commute to work and I might need to travel when COVID is over. 2. Will prefer a dog friendly neighbourhood. 3. Both are from Midwest so winter does not bother us. 4. Planning to sell our condo in Chi and buy a SFH in the location. Any recommendations?
