Default Do you use your weekly allowance points?

First of all, sorry if this topic has already been made a bunch of times!

I was wondering, do you guys use your weekly points?
When I first started WW I thought of them as pretty much bad to use. As in, you were only supposed to use your dailies, and if you use your 'weekly allowance' you're not actually dieting as you're supposed to and will just maintain or even gain weight back. I'm now being told this isn't true and you're actually supposed to use them? WW even advises you to apparently.

For example, I was doing great for the past 2 weeks and then yikes... my sister brings home 2 packs of dough for cookies and a giant pizza. I was like and ate like a wild beast(it wasn't pretty omg) but stopped shoveling in time to track everything down to the points and I still managed to use less than what the weekly allowance allowed me to. I don't see how I can still lose weight like that, lol.

What do you guys do? Use them all every week, use half, use them only when you need to, or steer clear of them completely? And what's your experience with it, have you gained weight or lost less then you wanted to by using them?

Thanks guys
