    I know DH uses his when he is sent away somewhere to instruct... he uses it at the grocery store, the exchange, to get coffee, at resturants. They all do the Sr. Chief, the 1st class and the other dude.

    then when the bill comes in, the money is taken out of his per diem paid to the CC people and he gets what ever is left over.

    You can only use this card when on official orders. Like TDY, PCS, ect. That is what it is for. It can only be used for what is authorized on the orders also.

    It is taking out of the money allotted for the orders. Per diem kinda.

    You get so much for food, lodging, ect. when your sponsor puts in the travel voucher, they will send the amount allotted for the Card and the rest to you.

    you cannot use the CC for personal things-
    and can only be used while on TDY or PCS orders-

    it is not taken from your PAY but from the per diem reimbursement when they turn in thier travel claim after the TDY or PCS.
    it can only be used for food, lodging while on orders.

    not really....

    like for DH he gets a per diem when he is sent somewhere to teach.. this is on top of his normal pay.

    Soooo like when he went to Jax to teach a class... it was 63.47 or something like that a day. x's say 14 (normal class range) so he would get 888.58 extra tax free on top of his normal pay check. They pull what is owed on the GTC out of this money.

    Like he didn't realize it but this last trip he spent like 450.00 on his card over 14 days (not to Jax) and so he only got like 398.00 something in a seperate check (not his 1 or 15)

    Af wise, you can't just go and use the card when and where you want. The card has to be loaded with the forecasted $ amount that is needed for the trip.

    They do audit the cards and will look into if they see something fishy.

    Thanks everyone!

    DH is going out of town and was given one. I wanted to make sure we both understood the rules so that we don't run into any problems. We've never had one of these before.
