Is it possible to get a refund to my Corporate Amex deposited back to my personal checking account? Marriott didn't have a king bed room for a stay, so they're refunding $50. (Continued)

Just tell Marriott you want points instead

You were reimbursed for an expense incurred as part of your job. That expense turned out to be lower than you thought it would be. So now you need to amend your claimed expense. This is pretty simple -- if you have to jump through hoops to keep a refund it probably doesn't belong to you

Do you need that $50 that badly? It's not even yours

like

Just spend $50 on the card and write it off as personal when doing expenses. Won't harm you if it's a 1 time thing

You understand that pocketing the refund is stealing from the firm, right?

Okay, so I'll resubmit the expense once it comes in. Help me understand why it's not a goodwill scenario though. The rooms were the same price, but they were overbooked on the kings. Marriott has a room guarantee for Gold+ members where they refund $50/stay if it wasn't available.

Because it's not your money. The firm paid for the room. The room was cheaper than charged. The firm gets the money back. You get to keep getting a paycheck, which is the deal. Your money comes from paycheck, bonus, award. Not card.

Hey, i actually got in trouble for that with our accounting folks. You have to go back and resubmit the expense to include the refund

Agree with BCG1, after rereading this it's not like a goodwill scenario. It's a different room type that was cheaper. This is not yours to spend

like

Because you didn't pay for it OP . Come on man show some ethics and judgement here

They said it's not possible to get it as a gift card or to another card. How can I use the $50 refund? Is it stuck on the Amex and I have to do some personal expenses?

No

I asked for points. They said they would ask, but she didn't think she could. I'll just do $50 of personal spending on it then. Thanks.

Is it really? I had to call them for it.

Marriott is screwing you then with that benefit. They should make it points or credit, not a refund

Looking for advice/validation. Currently have about 10 credit cards (yes really!) About half are airline cards that I signed up for for the miles, quicker boarding, and free bags- but they carry a $100 annual fee. Other half are random no-fee cards (BoA, Amazon chase, capital one venture, west elm). My thought is to cancel the ones w an annual fee (just bought a house so no immediate need for higher credit limit). Does this make sense?

I’d like to give my firm around two weeks notice and I am scheduled to start on 27th Sept. Thoughts? As usual, radio silence from my EY recruiter.
