A former senior manager at Ralph Lauren took a plea deal Monday for racking up thousands of bogus charges on her corporate credit card in an embezzlement scheme.

Alexandra Bocon, 32, copped to third-degree grand larceny in Manhattan Supreme Court in exchange for 20 days in jail.

She allegedly created two phony businesses and linked them to Square accounts, an app used by companies to accept credit card payments, prosecutors said.

The Pratt grad used the corporate card to make $25,000 in unauthorized payments to her sham businesses then pocketed the cash, court papers state.

A bean counter at the fashion house discovered the fraud, and the Ralph Lauren exec was promptly fired.

Defense lawyer Peter Brill declined to comment. He previously called the charges against Bocon “an unfortunate misunderstanding.”

She is due back in court for sentencing Feb. 13.
