10x at Staples this morning to be honored for those who got in

This morning, we published a post about big increased payouts at some popular retailers through the United MileagePlus shopping portal. The star of the show was Staples offering 10 United MileagePlus miles per dollar. Unfortunately, it was very short lived. Shortly thereafter, people began reporting that the rate had dropped to 2 or 3 miles per dollar (depending on whether or not they held a Mileage Plus credit card).  Wondering if there had been a mistake, we reached out…

Update #2: It looks like this one will be honored for those who got in before the payouts changed. See this post for more information. Update: It appears that they killed the payout at Staples & Macy’s quickly this morning.
