Question:

Hi,
I sold someone 2 hotel nights certificates that I got from signing up for a credit card (These nights expire)
The buyer used only 1 certificate I reminded the buyer multiple times that it’s going to expire but he didn’t end up using it until it expired
I called up the hotel chain and they were willing to give me bonus points for the expired night
It’s not in the official terms that they give bonus points for expired nights but they did it due to me being a elite member
To who do these bonus points belong?

Answer:

The certificates belong to the person that bought them and paid money for them. I was very nice of you, and a mitzva of hashiovas aveida, to save them from getting lost, but since he paid for them, they are his.
