She’s Selfishly Been Hoarding Her Rewards Points for ‘Girls Holidays’ for Years and Caught Red-Handed With Her Despicable Lies

A clever but deceitful woman drew flak on Reddit when she revealed that she had been hiding a secret fund from her husband for years. But was he really an innocent victim in the whole thing? Here is the full story.

She’s a Stay-At-Home Mom With Four Kids

OP is a 29-year-old woman who has been married to her 30-year-old husband for nine years. OP is also a stay-at-home mom of four children.

OP’s husband makes good money, but he also has a plan for every cent. His tight and detailed budget provides for living expenses, savings, college funds, and some personal expenditures.

But OP’s husband doesn’t set aside any of their money for vacations. As a result, they don’t take any trips at all.

That has left OP a little bored and longing to travel, but it also got her thinking about ways to generate some extra income. One of her household duties gave her just the opportunity she was looking for.

She’s God Good at Using Coupons and Rewards Points

Ever since the couple got married, OP has been responsible for grocery shopping.

To make sure she gets the most bang for her buck, she has become very adept at using coupons, and her husband is grateful for her diligence in that area.

But OP discovered that her weekly shopping trips could actually help her build a little nest egg thanks to rewards cards and points. As with the coupons, OP has gotten really good at racking up rewards points over the years.

Unlike with her coupons, though, OP never told her husband anything about her rewards points. They have been her little secret.

And Each Year She Goes on a Girls Trip, Paying With Her Points

And each year, OP uses her secret rewards points to pay for her part of a “girls’ trip” with other members of her family. But she tells her husband that her mom, grandmother, sisters, and sisters-in-law pay for her expenses.

It all worked great until the men in OP’s family decided they wanted in on the fun. So they organized a “boys’ trip “ and asked OP’s husband to go along with them.

He said he’d love to, but that he couldn’t afford it. He did agree to go if the other men would pay for his expenses, as their wives did for OP.

OP’s brother was confused by her husband’s stance and told him that no one paid for OP to travel. She paid for everything herself.

She Didn’t Share

That shocked OP, and he confronted his wife about it. She was caught red-handed and had no choice but to confess what she had been doing with the rewards cards.

Even though OP expected her husband to be angry with her, it was even more devastating to see that he was mostly just hurt by her deception. He told her they could have used her points to do something as a family.

Since then, OP has been flooded with calls and texts from various family members. Most of them are mad at her for being so selfish and lying to everyone involved.

OP feels bad for keeping secrets from her husband, but she also thinks she’s worked hard for her rewards points. She doesn’t think it’s fair that he wants her to share them with the whole family.

She Was Being Selfish

Redditors have been pretty hard on OP about this situation.

A lot of them agree with her family that she is being selfish by using the rewards points for herself.

Others think that her husband is abusive and controlling, and they say she’s enabling her.

Most Redditors think OP should try to talk through the situation with her husband and see if they can come up with a plan moving forward.

So, what do you think of this story?

Was OP right for hiding her rewards points when she knew that her husband had a plan for every cent he makes?

Or was she just being selfish and deceitful?

And do you think her husband is too controlling, or is he just looking out for the family’s financial interests?
