They are getting rid of our ability to expense the corporate platinum card and are capping our telephone allowance at $60/month. For some people, that is a ~$100/month pay cut

What was cut?

Boost Mobile here I come. MetroPCS is plan B

Were Amex Platinums expensed for everyone of all levels prior to the cut?

If you were a firm frequent traveler (100+ hotel nights or 50k+ air miles in a rolling year)

Womp womp. We don't get reimbursed for Amex platinums until you get to Manager.
