I'd want to know what is the difference between "same to you, too" vs "same to you". Like people does use just "you, too" as well, but is it valid to use "same to you, too" or that's what the correct way really is.

  • Well, what's the difference between "I have a dog" and "I have a dog, too"? – Robusto Jan 10 '18 at 15:57
  • @Robusto First person would say "I have a dog" and second would "I have a dog, too", that's the difference. How is this relevant? – Codetard Jan 10 '18 at 16:01

    The point is, either can be valid depending on what you mean. – Robusto Jan 10 '18 at 16:14

    I don't see how the two statements would mean different things. I think the "too" would be redundant here (but not grammatically incorrect). – JeezLouise Jan 10 '18 at 18:11

    @JeezLouise: No, it's not redundant. The word too carries some semantic freight. "Did you get a bonus this year?" and "Did you get a bonus this year, too?" mean different things. If you don't understand the difference, perhaps you and those who upvoted your comment need a little more work on adverbs. See thefreedictionary.com/too – Robusto Jan 12 '18 at 14:02

Same to you.

Same to you, too.

Both are correct. However, the former is far more usual and idiomatic than the latter as the use of the "too" is redundant in this phrase. 6 When you wish the same thing to somebody as they wish to you, you usually say "Same to you".

The "too" is redundant and unneccessary. Without it the reciprocity is clearly implied.

  • That’s not the answer obviously. – Codetard Jan 12 '18 at 16:45
