Do I have to spend it straight away?

No, you have until end of June to spend any balance . Any credit (applied from Sept 18) after June 30th 20189 will be wiped, so make sure you spend it before it just disappears!

Can i combine my balance with my partners balance?

Sure , we can apply the balance from 2 cards to one purchase.
