Very nice of you. Would never let a new SO benefit from the points fountain. You have to earn that right

Took two years before I offered points to my SO for a trip w/o me going along.

Have him pay a few dinners if he wants. And I don't get people saying not to waste points on the SO. You're going to be in the hotel room, too. 😒

If you're upset about that he's not really not a SO - SOs do things for each other because they want to - not like tit for tat

I hope he's taking the trip with you! Having said that, there's no need for you to squander your points away on your new SO/friends/room mates. You've earned those, use them for yourself, or when you go with with your friends who have points of their own as well. Pretty selfish for someone to be okay with you using your points for them.

If it's a trip I would've taken anyway, I don't ask the SO to split the hotel, I was gonna get it anyway. Plus, at this point I make a lot more than him. I expect that will change eventually and I hope he'll do the same for me.

Lol. They are just points. I give mine away all the time to people who aren't my SO with no expectation of anything in return.. sheesh y'all are savages

Two dinners, and maybe a few drinks. You guys should be even.

I'm not upset about it at all @a3, he is the one who wants to make it up to me. He keeps asking what to do and I have no idea!
