A&M. Personal card allowed for all except for car rental. Makes CSR / Amex Plat that much valuable between extra points and cash back offers.

I feel like there has been some confusion on this thread and others like it I’ve recently seen on fishbowl. There is a difference between per diem and a daily limit. Per diem is like an allowance, you get the money whether you consume the food or not. No receipts are asked for. No Amex card reporting either. A daily limit is the upper bound on the amount of money you can spend for food every day. But you have to buy the food and produce a credit card transaction and/or receipt for it. With a per diem you can come out ahead and some people view it as an additional source of income.
