• audit-ready airline receipt data and hotel folio information for many major hotel chains

• convenient and intuitive online statement and transaction interfaces

• flexibility to use the card for personal expenses

• worldwide emergency card replacement

The AMEX T&E card is a personal liability, personal pay credit card that has no annual fee to the CWRU user. Reimbursement for the AMEX T&E card will occur in the same manner as the current JPMorgan Chase program. Approved travel reimbursements will be deposited directly into the bank account of your choice through HCM. These T&E deposits will be transferred by Accounts Payable via ACH within five business days of the receipt of your completed travel reimbursement information. The cardholder is responsible for full and timely payment of all card expenses. T&E card applicants will incur no penalty to their personal credit history when applying using this form through the CWRU Travel Services Office.

Please email with any questions about the new T&E card program, or call Michael Kurutz in the CWRU Travel Services Office at 216-368-6092 to apply.
