Just buy the package for her... no reason the points need to come from "her" account

I need some help navigating a conversation with my boss. I have been with our brand for 7 years (been with the same boss) but just came up on my 1 year anniversary with our corporate office last week. I had my review and received 4 out of 5 points. I received zero salary increase because I got a $2,000 bump earlier this year after they terminated an employee and I took on some additional tasks. Is it wrong of me to still think I should have received an additional bump?
