    Noticed this tonight- I get 8 miles/$ from Sephora while my husband was only getting 6...so I just bought my own Christmas present.

    Curious how many people have encountered similar discrepancies while shopping online through Mileage Plus.

    That is a bit disconcerting to hear. Will have to give it a look next time I shop (which will be soon) b/c I am all about earning all the miles I can. ;)

    Wonder what would cause such a difference between your acct and your husband's? Previous shopping, online acct with sephora?

    I'm not sure if he still does. I do, but wasn't using it for this transaction.

    Mileage Plus shopping website clearly says that card holders are eligible for better offers. So, that might be the solution to the mystery
