You’re correct you can’t book flights on your own card.

Unless you're AFS, where the policy is to book on Corporate AMEX and submit via TE. In this case you can use a personal AMEX instead.

Flex trips also technically must be purchased with CC and expenses via TE.

... already have CSR for meals/hotels. Open to a hotel CC as well if someone has any good insight on how to maximize points via consulting travel lifestyle

I think I know you SA... MN based perhaps 😏

Yes they are

You should get a corporate Amex. Make sure to sign up for membership rewards. You will get points automatically for those tickets booked through the portal, even though they don’t show up on your monthly card statement as charges
