On the Road Again

When you’re traveling it can be difficult to keep track of all those receipts.  Whether it’s cabs, parking or meals you’re bound to loose a receipt or two.  That’s one reason I like to reconcile my expense reports on a nightly basis.  I’ve made a little spreadsheet to do it for me, but sometimes I get back to the hotel room and realize I’ve lost that receipt.  This is where being able to log into Amex comes into play.  I scribble down what I missed in the spreadsheet and then it appears on Amex shortly thereafter.  I print the copy out of the web portal, attach it to my expense report, and viola – I’m not loosing hundreds or thousands a year in missed receipts.
