Staples.com increased to 4 points/$ in UR Portal

Just used the UR Portal and saw that Staples.com is listed as an extra 4 points/$ bonus today. I've only been using the UR Portal for a few months but I'm pretty sure it's been only 2 points for as long as I remember.

Obviously doesn't apply to gift card purchases, but if you need some actual office supplies it's a pretty sweet deal when combined with making the purchase on a 5x biz INK card (along with the SavingsEdge return, even better).

If I'm wrong on this, go easy on me - I'm a long time reader/learner here and finally coming out of the shadows to post!

Nice find which is good for non GC purchases. However given the nature of the topics in this MS forum, I am sure it is not really applicable. You shouldn't get flamed for this.

I use the portal to MS when there are FAR softwares. You would be surprised that the point stacks up with every FAR deal for Staples. Good job OP.
