Hi, all. I booked a trip with my wife and we got the points for it plus bonus points with the RR credit card. The points were enough to book another round trip, but she won't be going with me the next time. All of the points are associted with her RR account and the card's in her name but I'm an authorized user so I have my own card. I was looking at transferring points to my RR account but it's very expensive to do that and I didn't know that at first. But it seems like I can just make my reservation using her RR account and just put in all of my info, including "my" credit card info? Is there something I'm missing here? It just seems unlikely that anyone would pay a lot of money to transfer points if this was an option, but I guess there are situations sometimes where you want to book for someone but not have to "worry" about having it associated with your own account. Will I have to log into her account to check in and stuff? Or will everything be there for me as long as I'm sure to put in my RR number when booking? I'm not worried about either of us receiving points for this booking since it's free--or from the looks of it less than $25 with taxes. I'm sure someone will also encourage me to check the price from time to time to see if I might be able to get some points returned, but I'm on top of that. :) The other somewhat funny thing about this is that I booked our most recent trip, the one where we got all of our points, using my RR account but it was with the credit card that's associated with her account and we still got the points--which is nice. I'm not holding my breath waiting for the $200 statement credit though!
