This is in regards to my corporate Amex I might add

Clear the 200 as personal. But check with pwc policy

Yes you’re all good. You only expense whatever is a business expense. You can technically put personal spend on your Amex as long as you don’t expense it. On another note - would advise to not redeem the 40k points as cash. You’ll get much better value/point by transferring to airline miles.

Oh really? Okay maybe I’ll pay out of pocket or use some chase points for the ticket, then transfer Amex to AA?

Yep whenever you fly you should always consider multiple options & carriers to get the best redemption value. What I do is that I knew all my points and convert to airlines as needed. And you don’t beed to stick with AA you can use them with another airline if that ticket is cheaper/makes most sense

Had a very early call with the client and foreign lawyers this morning. One of the other country lawyers couldn’t use my telecon number, so I had to set up an impromptu Zoom meeting. In pajamas, no makeup. Firm’s Zoom has no option for the organizer to start the meeting with their camera off for some reason. Client and other lawyers are all female, and they all turned their cameras on in solidarity. I love the supportive women I have the pleasure to work with. Any other Zoom WFH war stories?
