Hey PwC fish, can someone please explain how the corporate card works? Can you still get solid rewards/points for travel? Unfortunate they don’t let you use your personal card so curious what the incentives are. Thanks!

You can collect the points personally if you sign up for Rewards and pay the fee yourself. I think you can also connect a personal AMEX and contribute to the same rewards pot.

$55 annually. I think I spent about $100K each year on corp card between 2013-2019. It was super worth it. Slowly starting to travel again, love those points.

Unless you travel a lot it’s not worth it to pay for the points. You need to to do the math and figure out the break even. I did when I was charging $30 grand a year.

What’s the annual fee?

$55, charge just came through on May 1st

When traveling, it’s an absolute no brainer. Without very consistent travel, not worth it. What’s the break even point? Break out those excel skillz and create that optimizer! This was a right of passage for any consultant “back in the day”

Break even will $5500 a year. Point is 1% of expenses. If you have other Amex the it is even better, you can club the points together.
